Big Al hits Calgary:
Climate change crusader Al Gore stepped into Canada’s energy heartland on Monday and warned global warming is the most dangerous crisis humans have ever faced.
I like when Al warns us mere humans of these problems. It shows that even ExPandoBots from other planets have feelings.
The Columbia glacier in the Alberta Rockies, the source of water for many rivers and streams, is melting rapidly, he said.
Thus delivering more water, presumably.
As for the here and now, Gore said Albertans need look no further than the mountain pine beetle invasion of the province’s forests, a pest that was once kept in check by long, cold winters.
Down with bio-diversity!
His Academy Award-winning documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, has played around the world, grossed $45 million US, and occupies several shelves of many Calgary movie rental stores.
Why aren’t people renting it instead of leaving it on those shelves?
Roughly 1,800 tickets to his talk Monday night at Jack Singer Concert Hall sold out in three days, most of the seats costing $159.
They must be way comfy.
In Regina, where Gore also spoke Monday, SaskTel covered the $208,000 tab to put on the event, which included Gore’s $125,000 fee.
Not everyone was keen to see Gore in Calgary. A small group of protesters blasted his message as fear-mongering, contending carbon dioxide created from burning fossil fuels is not contributing to global warming.
“Al Gore and Chicken Little,” read a sign carried by a protester dressed in a yellow chicken suit. “Partners in false panic.”
He’s no false profit, though, at $125,000 per speech. Why might Gore need all that cash?
Friends of Al Gore have secretly started assembling a campaign team in preparation for the former American vice-president to make a fresh bid for the White House.
