It has to do with hypocrisy, if you Google that name you'll find he's apparently a big renewable energy supporter. Assuming sanrene is correct a supporter of Al Gore another hypocrite who lives in house that in one month consumes as much energy that the average household in the US consumes in an entire year.

When Al Gore says "we need to make sacrifices" he actually means "You need to make sacrifices". By his very actions he's not interested in the environment but instead lining his pockets.

Video: 100 Years of Headlines About Catastrophic Climate Change


Maybe Time Magazine can save some money by republishing their January, 1977 edition which starts out Another Ice Age? LOL, LOL!


Quote:
In Africa, drought continues for the sixth consecutive year, adding terribly to the toll of famine victims. During 1972 record rains in parts of the U.S., Pakistan and Japan caused some of the worst flooding in centuries. In Canada's wheat belt, a particularly chilly and rainy spring has delayed planting and may well bring a disappointingly small harvest. Rainy Britain, on the other hand, has suffered from uncharacteristic dry spells the past few springs. A series of unusually cold winters has gripped the American Far West, while New England and northern Europe have recently experienced the mildest winters within anyone's recollection.

snip garbage

The trend shows no indication of reversing. Climatological Cassandras are becoming increasingly apprehensive, for the weather aberrations they are studying may be the harbinger of another ice age.Telltale signs are everywhere —from the unexpected persistence and thickness of pack ice in the waters around Iceland to the southward migration of a warmth-loving creature like the armadillo from the Midwest.Since the 1940s the mean global temperature has dropped about 2.7° F.
So, just to make sure I am on the right track here, from the 1940's to 1977 global temperatures dropped 2.7° F but have they managed to climb back up to where they were since 1977?

But far to much money is invested, Al Gore is all in, for them to let loose. They can not let loose of this total farce.

How will the water levels rise? And what did the neanderthals have to do with it in the past?

What it comes down to is that humans have overstayed their welcome. The human race as a whole does not deserve to have a healthy environment. We are probably programmed to self destruct and screwing up the eco system is the way we will get there. No great loss when I see the number of boneheads that post on some of these threads.
