IRELAND NOW ICELAND

An Irish reader emails:

Al Gore was in Dublin today to address the annual conference of Mercer Investment Consulting, where he talked about linking investment to environmental concerns.

As of 2.30pm local time, Dublin airport was reporting snow showers.

    1. He’s really talking about linking investments to GoreCo investment group where his “carbon credit” money goes.

      Iceland is actually becoming more like Ireland in the sense that they are slashing their corp. tax rates to increase tax revenue.  Who has the last Laffer now!

    1. Ireland is the home of blarney, so Algore should feel right at home.  Pity about the glaciers he undoubtedly triggered.

    1. There. You see. Gaia can’t be dead, or even incapacitated, because she still hates AlGore enough to send the coldening after him.

      Now I’m’na have to re-arrange the furniture again. That Gaia head would’ve gone great in the living room.

    1. The leprechauns are a lot easier to catch when they keep slipping and falling.

    1. What’s the fabric of choice for when the temperatures plummet?

      Gore-Tex.

      Need I say more?

    1. He was in my hometown (Cambridge, UK) last Monday. Rather clement weather – sorry. I think Brit weather is just too unpredictable to listen to any law.

    1. Ah, more “algor rigor mortis” fodder.

    1. #9 – yes, but one of the characteristics of Local Goremening is unpredictability.

    1. I’d like to know just how much money Gorebot skims off the top of this climate change con.

    1. Hmmm.

      Oh Christ!

      If Gore is in Ireland that means he’ll be coming back through the NYC/NJ airports.

      Oh heck.  And I just put away all my cold weather gear.

    1. #9, ThinAndBritish:

      That might indicate that the AlGoricle has been cloned. There was speculation that the clones would not carry the same weather warping powers as the original model.

    1. Bloody Hell!!

      I knew something was up yesterday in London when I went to ride my motorbike home after work and it was bloody freezing.  The day before I didn’t even need to wear gloves it was that warm.  Needless to say, today in London has been a shocker too!  Wind, fog & rain.  This may not be Dublin but the Gore Effect seems to be expanding!!
