Angry butterball: Al Gore
“This battle has not been successful and is pretty much over for this year,” a shaken Al Gore has told his supporters, conceding that there is now next to no chance of US Congress passing a Climate Bill in 2010. (H/T Julian Morris).
As recorded by Steve Milloy at the Green Hell Blog, the bloated sex poodle was on magnificently paranoid form, lashing out in all directions at the enemies responsible for his mission’s failure, up to and including the US President:
Gore bitterly denounced the Senate and federal government stating several times, “The U.S. Senate has failed us” and “The federal government has failed us.” Gore even seemed to blame President Obama by emphasizing that “the government as a whole has failed us… although the House did its job. [emphasis added]”
Gore’s deadliest venom, however, was reserved for the kind of scumbags who read this blog – and of course for the Big Oil companies who fund our lavish lifestyles:
Gore said “the government was not working “as our founders intended it to” and laid more blame at the feet of fossil fuel interests who conducted a “cynical coordinated campaign” with “unprecedented funding” and “who have spent hundreds of millions of dollars just on lobbying.” He criticized “polluters” for “dumping global warming pollution into the atmosphere like it was an open sewer.”
Gore blamed the skeptics for “attacking science and scientists.” “They [the skeptics] did damage and cast doubt,” Gore said.
He also quite rightly recognised how hideously biased the MSM is on the global warming issue.
Asked why the alarmists were ineffective in addressing Climategate, Gore bitterly blamed a “biased right-wing media… bolstered by professional deniers.” Gore claimed the Wall Street Journal published 30 editorial and news articles about Climategate and “not a single one presented [his] side of the science.”
Yeah, that’ll be it, Al. Very powerful newspaper the Wall Street Journal. Nobody reads anything else.
Oh, and in the bit before Gore spoke, his warm up man Larry Schweiger of the National Wildlife Federation came on and described sceptics as “bastards” whom he hoped that True Believers in ManBearPig would outlive.
Which was nice.
