Al Gore Calls Media Coverage of Climate Change a “Nature Hike Through the Book of Revelation”

gore

ManBearPig: Concerned about false information…

ManBearPig is blowing more hot air to promote his sequel to An Inconvenient Truth.

From Hollywood Reporter: “Every night on the news is like a nature hike through the Book of Revelation,” Al Gore said Saturday night when asked his opinion of how the news media reports on climate change. “And I’ll wait for the newscasters to connect the dots,” he continued, adding that they rarely do.

Gore spoke about the state of the news media and its effect on the conversation surrounding global climate change at a Q&A before an advance screening of his his latest documentary, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, held at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.

At the Fandango-sponsored event, actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt moderated the conversation with the former vice president of the United States, asking about “fake news” and its place in the denialist narrative about climate change.

“We have a challenge in the U.S., where climate in the news in concerned,” said Gore. “First: The line between news and entertainment has become a very porous line.” He added: “Second reason is that there is a pretty powerful and wealthy special interest of carbon polluters that have spent billions of dollars over the past three decades putting out false information.”

Gordon-Levitt asked Gore where he gets his own news. “I like to triangulate,” said Gore, adding his go-tos are The New York Times, The Guardian and The Wall Street Journal, adding, “I’ll read some red-state sites, as well.”

An Inconvenient Sequel, from directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, is the follow-up to Davis Guggenheim’s Oscar-winning 2006 doc An Inconvenient Truth. The Participant-produced sequel, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, will be released July 28 by Paramount.

Before the screening began, Gore prompted the audience to go to town-hall meetings, talk to their local representatives and do their own research on the global climate crisis. He concluded: “It has to come from the people because the news media is not giving it to us fairly and squarely now.”

Hollyweirdo pervert: Actor Armie Hammer likes grotesque S-M

Armand “Armie” Hammer, 30, is a Hollywood actor probably best known for playing the Lone Ranger in the 2013 movie, with Johnny Depp as Tonto.

Armie is the great-grandson of oil tycoon Armand Hammer — son of Russian Jewish immigrants, whose father, Julius Hammer, founded the Communist Party in New York.

Despite being an oil magnate, most closely associated with Occidental Petroleum, a company he ran from 1957 until his death in 1990, Armand Hammer had close ties with the socialist Soviet Union. He also had close ties with Al Gore’s family.

Armie Hammer, the actor, dropped out of high school in eleventh grade to pursue an acting career. He is also an S-M fetishist, the kinkier the better.

National Enquirer reports, March 13, 2017, that Armie signaled his kinky fetish when he clicked “like” on a series of grotesque S-M photos on Twitter, including:

  • A photo of the “super nipple technique” of Shibari bondage master Hajime Kinoko with “alternative model, shibari & cirque artist” Maya Homerton.

  • A photo of a woman in S-M latex designed by Reflective Desire, a company whose wares include full head-to-toe costumes. Some are topped with breathing apparatus, while outfits like “Bathtime” promise “an evening of filthy filthy space kittens in need of a bath!”

In a July 2013 interview, Armie Hammer told Playboy how his 2010 marriage to actress Elizabeth Chambers constrained the acting out of his sexual fantasies. He said:

“Well, if you’re married to a feminist as I am, then it’s… I don’t know how much we can put here without my parents being embarrassed, but I used to like to be a dominant lover. I liked the grabbing of the neck and the hair and all that. But you can’t really pull your wife’s hair. It gets to a point where you say, ‘I respect you too much to do these things that I kind of want to do.’”

Armie Hammer is 6’5″. God help any woman whose “neck and the hair and all that” are “grabbed” by this pervert.

In a tweet on Feb. 21, 2017, Armie calls the “Jesus Saves” jacket worn by former American Idol judge Randy Jackson “crazy”:

Armie’s Twitter feed shows him to be an anti-Trumper, thereby completing the Left’s syndrome of political liberalism, anti-Christian, and sexual pervert.

Thought Crime: 17 Democratic attorney generals go after climate-change deniers

green-nazis

The idea was first floated by academics when 20 professors & scientists signed a letter asking Obama to prosecute climate change (or what used to be called “global warming”) skeptics. They signed the letter despite the fact that there isn’t even agreement within the scientific community that (a) the Earth’s climate indeed is warming; and (b) it is human actions that cause that alleged warming.

Then the action swiftly shifted to government because government has the coercive force and power. (A classical definition of government, as any first-year undergrad political science major can tell you, is the institution in society with a monopoly on power.)

On March 9, 2016, at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Obama’s attorney general Loretta Lynch admitted that the Department of Justice (DOJ) has discussed taking civil action, i.e., civil lawsuits, against climate-change deniers. (See “Thought crime comes to America: Obama admin is considering civil action against ‘climate change’ deniers“)

Now 17 state governments are doing what the federal government is considering.

On March 29, 2016, flanked by climate-change profiteer and hypocrite Al Gore — he who owns several luxury, energy-consum mansions and attended the Sept 2014 People’s Climate March in New York in a large carbon-burning Chevrolet Suburban SUV17 Democratic attorney generals (AGs) announced in a press conference that they will be targeting, with legal action and huge fines, any company that challenges or denies climate change.

Democrat AGs prosecute climate change deniers

Hans von Spakovsky reports for The Daily Signal that the coalition of 17 “AGs United for Clean Power” treated climate change as an absolute, unassailable fact, instead of what it is— a controversial and unproven scientific hypothesis.

Speaking at the press conference on March 29, New York AG Eric Schneiderman declared, “The bottom line is simple: Climate change is real.” He threatened that the AGs will pursue “to the fullest extent of the law” companies that commit fraud by “lying” about the dangers of climate change.

The coalition of 17 consists of:

  • The attorney generals of 15 states: California, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Virginia, Vermont, and Washington;
  • AGs of the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands.

16 of the 17 AGs are Democrats, while the AG for the Virgin Islands, Claude Walker, is an independent.

Schneiderman and Kamala Harris, representing New York and California respectively, have already launched investigations into ExxonMobil for allegedly funding research that questions climate change. Exxon emphatically denounced the accusations as false, pointing out that the investigation that “uncovered” this research was funded by advocacy foundations that publicly support climate change activism.

Standing next to Schneiderman throughout the press conference was the new inquisition’s Tomas de Torquemada — Clinton’s former VP Al Gore, who narrated a climate change propaganda film in 2006 entitled “An Inconvenient Truth” and deftly peddled the global-warming propaganda to amass a multi-million-dollar fortune. Gore praised what the coalition is doing as “exceptionally important,” never mind that what the AGs are doing is nothing less than prosecuting a thought crime.

When pressed on the effect that such investigations and prosecutions will have on free speech, Schneiderman said climate change dissenters are committing “fraud” and are not protected by the First Amendment.

At least for now, other state attorney generals still respect the First Amendment. Oklahoma AG Scott Pruitt and Alabama AG Luther Strange said they would not be joining this coalition:

“Reasonable minds can disagree about the science behind global warming, and disagree they do. This scientific and political debate is healthy and should be encouraged. It should not be silenced with threats of criminal prosecution by those who believe that their position is the only correct one and that all dissenting voices must therefore be intimidated and coerced into silence. It is inappropriate for State Attorneys General to use the power of their office to attempt to silence core political speech on one of the major policy debates of our time.”

Global Warming loons and hypocrites

#1: John “snake tongue” Kerry

Kerry tongue

America has a secretary of state who not only flicks his tongue like a serpent, he says climate change global warming will lead people to kill each other.

At the USAID’s 2014 Frontiers in Development Forum on September 19, 2014, Kerry spoke alarmingly about “500-year” drought conditions around the world which he attributes to global warming’s “heat waves.” The result is that “there are people killing each other over water in certain parts of the world.” The solution is sustainable development, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, and a “low-carbon economy”. (AllAfrica.com)

#2: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

RFK Jr & reporter

At the People’s Climate March in New York city on September 21, 2014, Junior totally lost it when PJMedia reporter Michelle Fields asked him about his carbon footprint and whether he would give up his phone and car to help combat climate change global warming. Environmental lawyer RFK Jr. became visibly irate, then grabbed Fields’ microphone and accused her of “destroying democracy” as a member of the press. (Daily Mail)

In an interview with Climate Depot during the march, Jr. also lamented that there were no current laws on the books to punish global warming skeptics. He called global warming skeptics “contemptible human beings” and said, “I wish there were a law you could punish them with.” He called the pro-energy Koch brothers “treasonous” and that “they should be in jail . . . enjoying three hots and a cot at the Hague with all the other war criminals.”

In so doing, RFK Jr. was echoing what other Warmists have said, including scientists David Suzuki and Michael Mann, Gawker’s Adam Weinstein, former NASA scientist James Hansen, and Grist.org’s David Roberts. (CNS News)

RFK Jr. flies around on private planes to lecture about the perils of global warming, and receives royalty payments from two family-owned oil drilling companies. See also “43 suspected mistresses found in RFK Jr.’s phone“.

Breitbart News asked Gore about the financial costs of renewable energy, as well as one of his houses—a mansion in Nashville that has previously been criticized for the amount of energy it reportedly uses. To which Gore gave a non sequitur reply, “Hundred percent.”

Gore then left in a large Chevrolet Suburban SUV. (Breitbart)

Actor and UN Messenger of Peace Leonardo DiCaprio — who flies in carbon-spewing private jet planes, owns FIVE carbon-spewing luxury homes , and cruises in the world’s 5th largest super yacht — also marched in the fashionable People’s Climate March, carrying a “100% FOR THE PLANET!” sign. (NY Post)

Oh, the irony! The hypocrisy!

Leonardo DiCaprio takes part in a march against climate change in New York

Watch Leo the hypocrite evade the question when CFACT’s Christina Norman asked him whether he is aware that there has been no global warming for 17 years.  This upset “Hulk” actor Mark Ruffalo who said, “Don’t make me angry! Anyone who attacks Leonardo DiCaprio is either a coward or an ideologue.”

Al Gore Sues Al Jazeera for Withholding Money From Sale of Current TV

al gore

THR.com: Current TV co-founders Al Gore and Joel Hyratt have launched a fraud and breach-of-contract lawsuit claiming that Al Jazeera is withholding money from its $500 million purchase of the cable news network.

The complaint was filed under seal in the Delaware Court of Chancery, but information provided reveals that the plaintiffs are seeking $65 million held in escrow.

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore is being represented by David Boies, the attorney who memorably represented him in the 2000 battle over a Florida election recount.

“Al Jazeera America wants to give itself a discount on the purchase price that was agreed to nearly two years ago,” said Boies in a statement. “We are asking the Court to order Al Jazeera America to stop wrongfully withholding the escrow funds that belong to Current’s former shareholders.” According to Boies, the plaintiff is also filing the case under seal with some objection.

“We do not believe that our complaint should be sealed,” he says. “However, despite being a news organization, Al Jazeera America has said that the full complaint should be kept from the public file. We have therefore filed the complaint under seal until the Court can resolve this issue.  We expect that the Court will reject Al Jazeera America’s argument.”

An Al Jazeera spokesperson says in a statement, “Our outside counsel is reviewing the complaint. We think it relates to a commercial dispute between former shareholders of Current Media and Al Jazeera America. We may have further comment once they’ve fully reviewed everything.”

The announcement that Current TV would be sold to Al Jazeera came in January 2013. It was believed at the time that the Qatari royal family, which owns Al Jazeera, was most interested in attaining Current’s favorable distribution deals with cable and satellite TV providers. However, since the deal was made, Al Jazeera America has faced litigation from AT&T and DirecTV. In both cases, Al Jazeera has fought hard to keep details of the lawsuits under wraps.

Al Jazeera America also was dropped by Time Warner Cable for a time, but eventually returned to that service.

When launching, Al Jazeera America went on an aggressive hiring spree. However, its ambitions have been dampened by weak ratings, sometimes falling below Current’s. Nevertheless, the cable news network has made waves, most recently in Ferguson, Missouri, where it called for an investigation into media mistreatment after seeing its reporters in the vicinity of tear gas. The network called that an “egregious assault on freedom of the press.”

When Gore sold Current to Al Jazeera, the climate change activist faced tough questions from the likes of Comedy Central host Jon Stewart for choosing to sell to an oil-rich Middle Eastern nation. “I’m proud of the transaction,” Gore responded. “It’s going to really be a positive addition to the U.S. media landscape.”

After the sale, Gore was sued for not compensating a media consultant who allegedly came up with the idea for the distribution of an American version of Al Jazeera. The complaint alleged that the former veep was originally opposed to the deal but had a “change of heart.”

The defendants beat the lawsuit, although not before having to give depositions in the case.

At the time the Current-Al Jazeera transaction was announced, word was circulated that Gore would continue to play an advisory role. But during a deposition, Hyatt testified, “We had indicated our willingness to serve on an advisory board, if they wanted us, but they never went ahead and constituted an advisory board, and we never served on one.”

Hyatt also said that secrecy was a paramount consideration for Al Jazeera (“they made it quite clear the importance of confidentiality”), and that the deal was closed on Jan. 2, 2013, “because that’s when Al Jazeera wired the money to the escrow fund,” he said.

The former Current executive was also asked, “Are there any obligations left to — on behalf of either yourself or Mr. Gore to fulfill in the courts with the — that deals with Al Jazeera?” He answered, “There are no obligations.”

Someone on Twitter suggested they pay off Gore with carbon credits – brilliant!

ManBearPig Warning: ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ Producers Talking Sequel

 

gore

Hollywood Reporter: Al Gore might need to dust off his projector. The creative forces behind the Oscar-winning environmental documentary An Inconvenient Truth are hatching plans for a sequel to the film that raised global awareness of climate change. “We have had conversations,” producer Lawrence Bendertells THR. “We’ve met; we’ve discussed. If we are going to make a movie, we want it to have an impact.”

The first film certainly did. Released in 2006 by Paramount and Jeff Skoll’s Participant Media, the Davis Guggenheim-directed doc grossed nearly $50 million worldwide and helped propel Gore, its narrator, to a 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. But Bender believes that during the ensuing years, the fossil-fuel industry has changed the dialogue with a misinformation campaign. “They did a really good job of pushing back and confusing people,” he says. “Some people actually believe global warming doesn’t exist.”

Environmental activist Laurie David also believes a sequel should be on the agenda. “God, do we need one,” she says. “Everything in that movie has come to pass. At the time we did the movie, there was Hurricane Katrina; now we have extreme weather events every other week. The update has to be incredible and shocking.

(Note about David – from Wikipedia)

Global Warming "do as I say, not as I do" hypocrites

Global Warming “do as I say, not as I do” hypocrites

“In an interview with The Guardian in November 2006, David acknowledged that owning two homes on opposite sides of the country and flying in a private jet several times per year is at odds with her message to others. In the interview she notes “Yes, I take a private plane on holiday a couple of times a year, and I feel horribly guilty about it. I probably shouldn’t do it. But the truth is, I’m not perfect. This is not about perfection. I don’t expect anybody else to be perfect either. That’s what hurts the environmental movement – holding people to a standard they cannot meet. That just pushes people away.”

In 2005, and then again in 2009, David was cited by the Chilmark Conservation Commission for paving over protected wetland areas on her estate on Martha’s Vineyard.”

Despite the desire, a sequel is far from a sure thing, and producer Scott Z. Burns says he “would only support doing a follow-up if we have a really, really amazing way of attacking the issue and reinvigorating it.”

But Inconvenient Truth and the issues it raised were on Bender’s mind as he accepted an award during a Beverly Hills fundraiser March 21 that collected $700,000 for UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability. At the gala, hosted by Jeanne and Anthony Pritzker, the producer called for renewed activism on climate change and cited the film’s impact. “At the time, we hoped to provoke a global conversation about climate change,” Bender told the audience, which included Courteney Cox, Anjelica Huston, Johnny McDaid, and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. “Our new inconvenient truth is that not nearly enough concrete action has been taken.”
