Greenhouse Gore is at it again. This time he is being interviewed by Climate Reality Project collaborator Alex Bogusky on UStream. During the interview he equated the skeptisim his movement is receiving to the civil rights movement of the sixties (emphasis mine):
"I remember, again going back to my early years in the South, when the Civil Rights revolution was unfolding, there were two things that really made an impression on me," Gore said. "My generation watched Bull Connor turning the hose on civil rights demonstrators and we went, 'Whoa! How gross and evil is that?' My generation asked old people, 'Explain to me again why it is okay to discriminate against people because their skin color is different?' And when they couldn't really answer that question with integrity, the change really started."
Moral equivalence time? Bull Connor was out of his mind. And he paid dearly for his belief that blacks are inferior to whites. But now, Gaia Gore is trying to equate the hatred of blacks in the south with the 'hatred' of his beloved climate change movement. Never mind that there is absolutely no evidence to suggest that man is causing any change in the climate. He continues by suggesting the way to win the day is simply ostracizing those who don't believe the way he does:
"- but there came a time when racist comments would come up in the course of the conversation and in years past they were just natural. Then there came a time when people would say, 'Hey, man why do you talk that way, I mean that is wrong. I don't go for that so don't talk that way around me. I just don't believe that.' That happened in millions of conversations and slowly the conversation was won."
"We have to win the conversation on climate," Gore added.
So, rather than blinding us with science (all apologies to Thomas Dolby), Al wants his religious followers to make the debate about conscious and faith. Brilliant! This takes that pesky scientific method out of the debate and makes it a leap of faith! Well done Al well done indeed. He then suggests that there is a 'vast right wing conspirecy' crippling he and his follower's great work.
"This is an organized effort to attack the reputation of the scientific community as a whole, to attack their integrity, and to slander them with the lie that they are making up the science in order to make money," Gore said.
This is just rich. All the research I have seen questioning the climate alarmists have concentrated on the data NOT the reputation of the scientific community as Gore suggests here. In fact it has been the other way around. Any scientist questioning Grand Pubba Gore and his nonsense gets their funding cut off and ostracized from the scientific community. Projection?
