    Gore has been one of the most outspoken critics of global warming and a powerful advocate of carbon-reducing measures. As such, he has become a hero of the left — a man revered for warning Americans to curb their carbon footprint and reduce their impact on the Earth.

    (Don Surber) Minnesotans for Global Warming report that in the last 30 years, the United States has had 14,000 wind turbines abandoned. Apparently, once the subsidies and the wind run out, these 20-story high Cuisinarts are de-bladed and retired. This means more bats and migratory birds will live.

    FYI. Some of Gore’s private sector green tech activities include:

    Founder of, and investor in, London-based Generation Investment Management, which is run by David Blood, a former head of Goldman Sachs Asset Management
    Partner at, and investor in, Kleiner Perkins.
    Invested in partnerships and funds that try to “identify and support companies that are advancing cutting-edge green technologies and are paving the way toward a low-carbon economy.”
    Stake in “the world’s pre-eminent carbon credit trading market and in an array of companies in bio-fuels, sustainable fish farming, electric vehicles and solar power.”
    Adviser to high-profile technology companies including Apple and Google, “relationships that have paid him handsome dividends over the last eight years.”
    Capricorn has invested in Falcon Waterfree Technologies, the world’s leading maker of waterless urinals.
    Generation has holdings in Ausra, a solar energy company based in California, and Camco, a British firm that develops carbon dioxide emissions reduction projects.

    In other words, what these emails confirm is that the great man-made global warming scare is not about science but about political activism.

      If you’re going to bomb the global economy back to the dark ages with environmental tax and regulation, if you’re going to favour costly, landscape-blighting, inefficient renewables over real, abundant, relatively cheap energy that works like shale gas and oil, if you’re going to cause food riots and starvation in the developing world by giving over farmland (and rainforests) to biofuel production, then at the very least you it owe to the world to base your policies on sound, transparent, evidence-based science rather than on the politicised, disingenuous junk churned out by the charlatans at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

    In a special 80th anniversary edition of Broadcasting & Cable magazine (not online), former vice president Al Gore lays out his vision for how the American public is just desperately hungry for Current TV — actual ratings numbers notwithstanding. To add humor on top of humor, Gore insisted that Current TV is not really leftist.

    “Some of our competitors may see us as being on the left side of the spectrum,” Gore admitted, “but the entire spectrum has been pulled so far to the right that we believe that we are completely right about what viewers are yearning for as we enter what is sure to be one of the most heated, energetic, and fascinating election years in memory.”

    Jones has frequently before made “intellectual property” rights claims over the raw data, insistent that only he and his fellow cultists could examine the actual data. This could just be an advisory to always keep their Golden Goose hidden from outside observers.

    Some scientists weren’t completely comfortable with the deceptions:

    One nervous scientist wrote: ‘The figure you sent is very deceptive.’

    ‘I also think the science is being manipulated to put a political spin on it which for all our sakes might not be too clever in the long run,’ wrote another.

    The lead author of one of the reports, Jonathan Overpeck, wrote, ‘The trick may be to decide on the main message and use that to guide what’s included and what is left out.’
