Meateater Al Gore Blames Meateating for Global Warming

Al Gore is pontificating again.

This time, the “fat crazed sex poodle” wants us to ditch meat-heavy diets and go organic to combat global warming.

Robin Bravender reports for Politico, Aug 26, 2011, that during an interview with FearLess Revolution founder Alex Bogusky, Gore identifies industrial agriculture as “part of the problem” and that humans’ shift toward a more meat-intensive diet led to the clearing of forest areas in many parts of the world in order to raise more cattle, which in turn led to more global warming. He advocates organic farming and relying on “more productive, safer methods that put carbon back in the soil” to produce safer and better food.

Then Gore took a shot at the mining industry, calling mountaintop-removal mining a “horrible practice” that is “just incredibly harmful to the environment and to people.”

Gore — he who owns four energy-consuming luxury mansions and travels in carbon-spewing private jets — concluded his latest exercise in hypocrisy by equating climate change manmade global warming skeptics with racists, comparing the struggle against warming skeptics to the fight against racism during the 1960s civil rights movement.

I did a quick search on the net and found this video of Glenn Beck saying that Gore is a meat-eater (1:15 mark):

According to a 2007 article in USA Today, Gore has profited from zinc mining to the tune of $570,000 in royalty payments for the mineral rights to his property in Carthage, Tennessee. The zinc mine has released millions of pounds of potentially toxic substances.

Al Gore bought the land near the mines from his parents on Sept. 22, 1973, the same day his father bought it from Occidental Minerals, a subsidiary of Occidental Petroleum, and leased the mineral rights back to the company.

Gore’s spokeswoman Kalee Kreider said the terms of the 30-year lease provided fat Al “no legal recourse” even if he had wanted to cancel it. Kreider said Gore received $20,000 a year in royalties for 27 years and $10,000 per year in three years.

During the 1980s, the mine was the largest zinc-producing mine in the country. In the five-year period from 1998-2003, more than 19 million pounds of toxic substances were released into the air, water and land, according to the Environmental Protection Agency’s Toxic Release Inventory data. Most of that was zinc pulled from the ground during mining.

Most of the improper discharges from the mines into nearby rivers and streams involved higher than allowed levels of zinc. One of those waterways was the Caney Fork River, which Gore used as a backdrop in his Oscar-winning documentary on global warming, “An Inconvenient Truth.”

  1. polished communist.

  2. This shows that he knows full well thereof he speaks…. Heaven sees to it that we always speak our truth, no matter how inconvenient we may later find it to be! “Ideas Have Consequences” wrote Dr Richard Weaver shortly after fat Al was born, and here we see the results when bad ones are fulfilled.

  3. Ending the consumption of meat is an item of Agenda 21 that says the farming practice of “grazing cattle” is not sustainable.

    • Grannie,

      I am a vegetarian. My objection is to the fact that Al Gore eats meat but lectures to us about the evils of meat-eating.

    • Dear lowtechgrannie: As one who spent fifty years in horticulture and related agriculture both practising & teaching, let me assure you this statement was made by an idiot. Grass-fed cattle et al., standing apart from factory-farm methods of animal captivity, is EMINENTLY sustainable! There were an estimated 50 million bison on the Great Plains when Europeans arrived. There was NO erosion by wind or water, and there were no epidemics of disease. How would Agenda 21 account for that immense success? The Creation will ALWAYS trump our egotistical intelligence.

      The early ranchers of the Argentine Plains had great success, until they overloaded that eco-system, and then started using synthetic fertilisers and factory-farming methods. They are now returning to a more open range, grass-based diet for smaller herds, as we also have in Kanada, to save our bison. The Bible’s Hebrew is very subtle on this point: we were supposed to live in a bondage relationship w/the Creation, i.e., practising sustainable husbandry. When we care rightly for the Creation, it will care rightly for us. Don’t waste yr time trying to explain this to materially-minded atheists & unbelievers. Plant a tree instead, and dedicate it to the idiot who wrote the above Agenda 21 crapola.

  4. Al Gore , Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Charles Schumer, Barney Frank and George Soros should all join hands and form a ring around a pile of gold and do a dance to what they really worship and believe in and stop bothering the rest of the human race, about anything. I would have included Warren Buffett, but he is already confused enough. Having worked in a senile psychiatric hospital in my youth I can sure see some heavy signs of the future when I think of this motley crew. I’m just glad I am too old to do that type of work any more.

  5. If I ever open a burger joint, I am going to feature a burger I will call the Gore Special.

    It will be two 1/3 lb. charcoal-grilled (how else do you cook a burger?) with two slices of thick Amurrican cheese, four slices of thick-cut bacon, mayo, pickles, tomato and onion.

    The only available side dish will be fresh-cut fries cooked in lard, and either a regular Coke or a for-real beer (no Diet Coke or lite beer of any kind, as lite beer is for wimps).

    And if Moochelle should ever show up, I bet it’s the very first thing she will order.

    • According to the massage therapist, he’s a sex-crazed poodle. Be sure to serve his in a dish on the floor.

    • Sounds perfect to me, and I’d point out that lard is one of the BEST fats for cooking. I use only coconut oil or lard for high temp cooking, butter or olive oil for low temp. Apart from sesame oil, which is NOT for cooking but for adding as a final seasoning, these are the only fats we need to use. All the rest are not good for various reasons. By the way, Fat Al inherited his fortune from his father’s stake in an old-fashioned crude oil business, nothing at all green about it.

  6. so, In order words, when Gore says we are causing Global Warming, it is he, that is doing it with the run off waste material from his Zinc MIne. I guess he thought no one would ever find out hes a hypocrite!!

  7. Gore appears to have eaten the whole cow, fat and all.

  8. Extraordinarily well written writing

  9. Great post Dr. Eowyn,
    I love your use of strike thru redaction!!! Really funny! :-D

  10. Does his hypocrisy make his statements less correct?

    • It does make the person making those statements less credible, especially when he himself became a multimillionaire because of what he peddles.
      Immediately before the 2000 election that Gore lost to Bush, Gore had a net worth of $1-2 million. By 2008, peddling global warming, Gore’s net worth had increased 6,000% to 12,000% to $120 million.

      • It doesn’t require much credibility to tell someone that their house is on fire.

        Very nearly all of Gore’s increase in wealth is from the legendarily successful Silicon Valley VC company Kleiner Perkins, pre-public holdings in Google and his seat on the board at Apple and the resultant insanely great Apple stock holdings.

        Gore’s biggest investment losses have been from his Generation Investment’s “green” investments such as First Solar, Sun Tech and EcoSynthetix.

  11. The “Fat Sex Crazed Poodle” rides again! this commie germ is in tight with the Russians, people that gave him all their money, he has more “hot air” to sell ya.
