STOP THEM DOZERS

Al Gore can’t understand:

I can’t understand why there aren’t rings of young people blocking bulldozers and preventing them from constructing coal-fired power plants.

Possibly it’s because they like electricity. As does Al himself, evidently:

  1. But it would be myopic to shrug that because there’s uncertainty about the risks, we shouldn’t act vigorously to confront them - yet that’s our national policy toward climate change, and it’s a disgrace.

    We don’t know what the risks are, and we’re not even sure if there are risks, but we should act vigorously to confront them right now.  Geez.  Someone should tell Nicholas Kristof that there’s medication you can take when you get the vapors.

    Also, if all these young people put up blockades around our fuel sources, how’s Al going to heat his house or run his mega-screens?

    They’re too busy keeping global-worming-friendly nukular plants from being built.

  7. Somewhere in all those stacks of dead trees is his receipt for being “carbon neutral”.  What do you want to bet its printed on non-recycled paper?

  8. Maybe Al’s not blocking ‘dozers himself, but he made an offsetting donation to the Rachel Corrie Fund.

  10. At least, when he killed all those trees, he was able to give a home to that giant tree frog.

    The desk clutter speaks volumes about his commitment to recycling. That stuff looks like it’s been collecting dust for months, if not years. He ought to consider ordering the Gore Scouts to permit one bulldozer to exit from the Ring of Junior Wowsers long enough to clear out his study.

    Posted by paco on 2007 08 18 at 01:54 PM • permalink

  11. For a gazillionaire, that’s a pretty crap office. You’d think with all his Inconvenient Truth dough and carbon offset scam funds, he’d be able to afford a legion or two of minions to at minimum organize his mess.

    Then when they’re finished cleaning the office, he could give them a classic Goreian pep talk and some hashish and send them out, brimful of insane wild-eyed fervour, to stop legitimate and necessary construction projects.

    Posted by Crispytoast on 2007 08 18 at 02:04 PM • permalink

  12. In return for people buying carbon offset credits Al keeps his desk clutter and doesn’t make a pile in his back yard and burn it.

    I hope that when AlGore leads the people to protest the construction of coal-fired power plants that they take an environmentally responsible catamaran to the construction sites in China.

  14. Integral Fast Reactor, Al.  Why didn’t you convince Clinton to keep developing it when Senator Kerry was lobbying to shut the program down?

    Normal reactors: waste most of the power in uranium, create waste that’s dangerously radioactive for thousands of years.

    IFR: Uses almost all of the power in uranium, creates waste that decays to less radioactive than uranium ore in less than 200 years, and can even run on the waste from normal reactors.

    You know what happens to an IFR when you shut down the safety systems (like what happened at Chernobyl)?  They tested it; the reaction shuts down.

  30. I find it scary when he calls for people to start blockading electricity generating stations (not his though, I expect).

    Remember he has had thousands of young stupid people indoctrinated at “global warming” camps over the past year.

  41. My two sons, one just qualified as an engineer and working on a mine site in Laos and the other in third year engineering must have learnt something at Uni. They think Gore is an idiot. Like most of their friends who have studied technical subjects they actually understand science, an area in which Gore is illiterate. Their favourite anecdote is when they were addressed by some rabid greeny at Uni on the evils of large companies like BHP and Rio Tinto. Not a smart move from the anti capitalist greeny who was addressing a group whose ambitions in life are to get jobs with these large companies. Being booed off the stage must have been a whole new experience for the greeny. Thank goodness we still have many sensible young people who are not going to be sucked in by Gore’s lies.

  43. He has what looks like some sort of framed diploma jammed in among all the crap on the far right side of the picture. I wasn’t aware they awarded honorary doctorates of Dipshitology.

    I wonder if his crystal ball is an Eco-Sphere (basically a high-end Sea Monkey tank).  He probably fondles the thing while he fantasizes about Mother Gaia.

  44. I have seen this photo often and the way it gets passed around makes me think that Al Gore and I react to it differently. He probably thinks it shows a hard worker with lots of information at his finger tips. To me it shows a “bower bird” mentality. Bower birds line their nests with lots of shiny and useless (to them) objects in an attempt to win a mate.

    Erm, that was us. On the Dark Lord’s orders, of course. (and people think he has retired! BWUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!).

    We very carefully did not mention the words “hard work” as he is allergic to it. All greenies and leftards are. It makes them drool more than normal and call for government grants.

    Nope, he had that place set up as a film prop some time ago. Normally, it is a garbage room. The only things he is able to read is Japanese manga tentacle porn comics (at the hi-brow end of his reading spectrum) and Noam Chomsky (at the trashy end).

    It was funny. When we wheeled him in (sideways) thru the door (while carefully shoehorning the blubber to avoid damage), his little piggy eyes lit up and he said the immortal words:
    “Me want see pretty moving pictures! Gimmee $100,000 for that speech!”


    He sat there for hours entranced by the colours until the minders found him.
