The Right Wing Attack on Al Gore and Why Vulcans Would Agree With Global Warming

Just fresh off his Oscar win for his documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” Al Gore is facing heat from the Right wing for his energy use in his home in Nashville. The Tennessee Center for Policy Research, a “nonpartisin group,” accused Gore of not walking the walk because he used 20 times more electricity at his Nashville house than the average house does. The right wing press took this one a ran. They failed to mention that Gore lives in a 20 room mansion, with a large guest house and heated pool. There is also three offices ran out of this house. Gore is in process of installing solar panels, has installed insulating windows, and the Gores purchase their electricity through a TVA program called the local Green Power Switch program — electricity generated through renewable resources such as solar, wind, and methane gas, which create less waste and pollution. They also participate in the carbon footprint program. The right wingers also forgot to mention that the group was not really a “nonpartisim group,” and in fact accepted donations form major oil corporations. Another interesting fact about this group that was hard to find in the regular media, was they never even asked the local electric company for this information, nor did the electric company give this information out to anyone. So the claim by The Tennessee Center for Policy Research was made up. The fact that the right wingers picked such a weak “think tank”, with an even weaker argument says alot. They can’t attack the message so they went straight for the messenger. If you look at the whole global warming thing logically then you have to decide that it is best to be on the side of Al Gore. If we take the right wing approach that global warming is just a cycle, and they are wrong; then the whole world will change as we know it for our children. With a right wing approach and the right wingers are right, that it is just a cycle, then we will continue to use oil like no tomorrow. Big Oil, and big buisness will get bigger, and the US will stay dependent on foreign oil. And gas prices will……?? Now if we take the left wing approach, and they are wrong; then we have saved a bit of gas by using alternative fuels. We will be less dependent on foreign oils, and the air should be cleaner as a result. If we take the left wing approach, and they are right; then we better pray they can figure this stuff out and fix our planet before it is to late. Logically, the best approach is; we take the left wing approach and hope the right wingers are right about it all being a cycle. All other ways lead to disaster.

    Did Chicken Little live in vain? We all know that the real problem is that the sky is falling!

  2. SpinNeutral says:

    Why is it that China, Russia, and India get a free pass?

    If we take the left-wing approach, whether correct or not, we will spend Billions and Billions of dollars. While at the same time the rest of the worlds’ biggest pollutors are explicitly exempted from following the agreements and having to clean up their own pollution generation.

    Gore’s ‘carbon offsets’ paid to firm he owns
    Critics say justification for energy-rich lifestyle serves as way for former VP to profit

    Al Gore defends his extraordinary personal energy usage by telling critics he maintains a “carbon neutral” lifestyle by buying “carbon offsets,” but the company that receives his payments turns out to be partly owned and chaired by the former vice president himself.

    Gore has built a “green money-making machine capable of eventually generating billions of dollars for investors, including himself, but he set it up so that the average Joe can’t afford to play on Gore’s terms,” writes blogger Dan Riehl.

    Gore has described the lifestyle he and his wife Tipper live as “carbon neutral,” meaning he tries to offset any energy usage, including plane flights and car trips, by “purchasing verifiable reductions in CO2 elsewhere.”

    But it turns out he pays for his extra-large carbon footprint through Generation Investment Management, a London-based company with offices in Washington, D.C., for which he serves as chairman. The company was established to take financial advantage of new technologies and solutions related to combating “global warming,” reports blogger Bill Hobbs.

    Generation Investment Management’s U.S. branch is headed by a former Gore staffer and fund-raiser, Peter S. Knight, who once was the target of probes by the Federal Election Commission and the Department of Justice.

    Hobbs points out Gore stands to make a lot of money from his promotion of the alleged “global warming” threat, which is disputed by many mainstream scientists.

    “In other words, he ‘buys’ his ‘carbon offsets’ from himself, through a transaction designed to boost his own investments and return a profit to himself,” Hobbs writes. “To be blunt, Gore doesn’t buy ‘carbon offsets’ through Generation Investment Management – he buys stocks.”

    As WND reported, Gore, whose film warning of a coming cataclysm due to man-made “global warming” won two Oscars, has a mansion in the posh Belle Meade area of Nashville that consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year, according to the Tennessee Center for Policy Research, citing data from the Nashville Electric Service.

    The think tanks says since the release of Gore’s film, the former presidential candidate’s energy consumption has increased from an average of 16,200 kilowatt-hours per month in 2005, to 18,400 per month in 2006.
