One Simple Way to Save the Planet: Keep It Zipped

Al Gore’s dalliances are not really the American public’s concern. Captain Planet is no longer a high-ranking public “$ervant” so his alleged lack of judgment does not compromise national security in any way. Though, it may have dire global consequences as we will see shortly.

The matter is between him and Tipper, and judging by their split, it looks like she knew something was going on, but that’s between them.

Recently, Portland police released the lurid details of what transpired between a masseuse and the Cassandra of our times.

I won’t go into them here because quite frankly I don’t care about the details, but if you do you can check it out here:

Sex complaint against Gore is detailed, credible

It is interesting that some of the major media players have stayed mostly mum on this. In fact, looking at the front pages of the sites of some of the big boys like ABC, CBS, Huffington Post, CNN and MSNBC this morning, nary a mention of what the police report said.

This is a tired song but it bears repeating, one wonders if Gore had been a GOP fixture, would the masseuse’s report been a major front page news item on these sites? Would the graphic details (a la “wide stance”) been emblazoned for all to see and snicker at?

Of course, but this is the modus operandi of these outlet’s and there’s nothing wrong with that, you’re supposed to take care of your own, especially when they screw up, right? What are chums for? Besides he gave us the “Internets”, right Dubya? Which without, we would have never had “Twitters”, right Barry?


A profit for our time

Make no mistake about it, these outlets (particularly ABC’s GMA) have been beating Mr. Gore’s drum on our planet’s pyrogenic condition for year$ now. They’re not about to undermine the apocalyptic religion that is anthropogenic global warming (and the whole “green” journalism wing$ it has created for them) by reporting on its chief prophet’s extracurricular activities.

Which brings us to an interesting tidbit in the police report. After the alleged encounter between the masseuse and Gore, the woman told her friends about it. Her friends, “liberals like herself”,

…advised against telling police. One asked her “to just suck it up; otherwise, the world’s going to be destroyed from global warming.”

While I’m not going to go as far as Michael Savage and proclaim that “liberalism is a mental disorder” (it’s not), it’s incredulous that her “liberal” friends truly believed that what stands between annihilation and our continuing existence on planet Earth was Al Gore’s reputation as a husband who keeps the 7th commandment.

To quote one of my son’s DVDs, “All I can is, ‘Wow'”

Let the Church Bells Ring

From Christian Lander, a prophet for our troubled times,

An interesting fact about white people is that they firmly believe that all of the world’s problems can be solved through “awareness.” Meaning the process of making other people aware of problems, and then magically someone else like the government will fix it.

As a call to action on global warming, churches throughout our fair planet will ring their bells on December 13, which just happens to be the date of the Copenhagen climate change summit.

“Church bells to ring out warning on climate change”

What’s next a synod against the sun for its role in global warmingt?

What all this hand-wringing bell-ringing is going to actually accomplish, I can’t really surmise. Perhaps the World Council of Churches was influenced by Christopher Walken’s Bruce Dickinson on SNL (below),

More Cowbell

“Guess what? The planet has a fevah, and the only prescription is more church bell”

God Sends Snow To Houston

“God thunders with His voice wondrously,
Doing great things which we cannot comprehend.
“For to the snow He says, ‘Fall on the earth…’ – Job 37:5-6

The snowfall that brought the Bayou City to a standstill (we all stopped and stared with incredulity) today was not of biblical proportions.

Nor was it enough to inspire Thomas Kinkade to paint another St. Nicholas’ Circle,
thomaskinkade

Yet it was pretty exciting to see snow falling from the heavens.

According to this story, this only marks the second time in the last 113 years that H-town gets snow this early (the other being on Dec. 10, 1944).

Imagine what would happen if humans weren’t contributing to global warming.

The possibilities are em, chilling indeed.

Where are they now: Iraq’s Information Minister

Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf (right) is now serving as the chairman of the IOC’s medical commission under the alias, “Arne Ljungqvist” (I guess “Turd Ferguson” was already taken?).

What makes me so sure? Well according to this story, “Olympics: Pollution over Beijing? Don’t worry, it’s only mist, say officials”, “Ljungqvist” claims that the pollution in China is really a mist, nothing more nothing less.

“The mist in the air that we see in those places, including here, is not a feature of pollution primarily but a feature of evaporation and humidity,” he told the IOC’s annual session.

Right-o

What’s next? Global warming is going to destroy the planet?

Oh wait a minute…

[FYI: The good minister is actually living with his family in the United Arab Emirates, at least according to his Wikipedia entry. Is it just me or do the Minister and Wikipedia go together like peas and carrots?]

Jupiter has a Fever, Let’s Raise Awareness!

“The planet has a fever” — Albert Gore

So goes the Veep’s passionate plea to save mother Earth from pyrogenic people.

Plant a tree, drive a hybrid, don’t shop at Wal-mart, stop eating meat, replace incandescent bulbs with those corkscrew ones that contain mercury, and above all, raise awareness for our besieged planet.

Well I for one, I’m glad that the Veep and other dedicated folks are all for saving us from ourselves (though they should look in the direction of the real culprit behind global warming, or maybe not since it might hurt their eyes.)

The sad news is that now Jupiter (which so far as we know has no nasty temperature-rising human beings on it) is undergoing climate change. According to this piece,

Jupiter’s recent outbreak of red spots is likely related to large scale climate change as the gas giant planet is getting warmer near the equator.

Maybe we can goad Mr. Gore and the gang to expand their horizons…

Environmentalist Seers and Their Predictions

A treatise on whether anthropogenic global warming is fact or simply a reason for rich folks to get richer by selling 21st century indulgences, is not the intention of this post. What we can all agree on is that whatever degree of global warming exists can be blamed on the Sun so maybe we can ask it to purchase indulgences carbon credits.

Whatever the case, I did think the following column by Prof. Walter E. Williams of George Mason University interesting,
Environmentalists’ Wild Predictions

A sample,

At the first Earth Day celebration, in 1969, environmentalist Nigel Calder warned, “The threat of a new ice age must now stand alongside nuclear war as a likely source of wholesale death and misery for mankind.” C.C. Wallen of the World Meteorological Organization said, “The cooling since 1940 has been large enough and consistent enough that it will not soon be reversed.”

Right, next thing you know we’ll be told that the global warming will be death of us all, oh wait a minute…
