Al Gore feigns ignorance on Goldman Sachs link

April 24, 2009

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) pressed Al Gore about his connections to Goldman Sachs. Gore responded with a quizzical look in denying the charge.

But Gore’s partner in Generation Investment Management is David Blood, a former Goldman Sachs partner. Goldman Sachs is lobbying for global climate change. You draw the lines.

Gore then tried to defend himself by accusing Rep Scalise of engaging in “guilt by association.” Yeah, Gore never does that.

Thanks to Rep. Scalise for asking one of the “10 Questions for Al Gore.”

Al Gore: Skeptics like ‘moon landing deniers’

Al Gore: Skeptics are ‘paid quacks’

April 24, 2009

Al Gore suggested that future generations will ask: What were they [us[ thinking? Why did they listen to “outlier quacks who got money from carbon polluters?”

Will any congressman ask Al Gore these 10 questions about his financial interests in global warming?

Useful idiot of the day: John Warner

April 24, 2009

Although former Virginia Sen. John Warner is testifying alongside Al Gore today in favor of the Waxman-Markey climate bill, he admitted that he hadn’t read the bill — earning him the Green Hell ‘Useful Idiot of the Day’ Award.

Al Gore howler: IPCC ‘represents global scientific community’

April 24, 2009

Al Gore said today that the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) “represents the global scientific community.”

Al Gore: Opposes energy from forest biomass

April 24, 2009

Rep. Greg Walden (R-WI) observed today that the Waxman-Markey bill would result in the end of the production of energy from forest biomass.

Al Gore defended the bill and downplayed the value of biomass.

When Rep. Walden tried to press Gore, Committee Chairman Ed Markey (D-Kennedyland) then gaveled him silent.

Al Gore: Climate cost a ‘postage stamp per day’

April 24, 2009

Al Gore said at today’s hearing that the cost of global warming legislation would be, at most, $0.30 per day — about the “cost of a postage stamp per day,” he said. He then said that global warming regulation could even save people money.

Rep. Greg Walden (R-WI) pointed out that Al Gore’s estimate came from an EPA report that assumed that nuclear power would grown by 150 percent — but nuclear power is not mentioned in the Waxman-Markey bill, which is the subject of the hearing.

Al Gore: ‘First step to global agreement’

April 24, 2009

Al Gore testified today that cap-and-trade is the “first step to a global agreement” on climate. Useful idiot, former Republican Sen. John Warner, chimed in that the Waxman-Markey bill would be important as a “beachhead” on global warming regulation.

Al Gore: Skeptics like Bernie Madoff

April 24, 2009

Al Gore told Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) today that the climate skeptics are like Bernie Madoff in that they are “perpetrating a fraud” on the public.

Al Gore says the skeptics are the “Bernie Madoffs of global warming” and that they are “lying to make money.”

Al Gore: ‘No time’ to talk about nuke power

April 24, 2009

House Energy and Commerce Committee Hearing Update:

Al Gore ducked talking about talking about nuclear power as a solution to carbon emissions by saying something to the effect that, “I don’t want to take up the Committee’s time by talking about nuclear power.”

This wasn’t exactly true as Gore then said he supported nuclear power but then went on to scare the Committee about nuclear proliferation (i.e., Iran and North Korea).
