It is really hard to make a moral issue out of greed, lies, and imposition of a soft form of tyranny Al, but go nuts trying.
In Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis, Gore argues that the prospect of disruptive climate change presents “a unique and unprecedented challenge” because its impact will unfold over decades and affect societies worldwide. Those are bigger units of measurement than political leaders usually work with when trying to build coalitions for action. “In other words, because of its planetary scope, this crisis masquerades as an abstraction,” Gore writes.
Huh? Check out the rest of the drivel in this National Journal interview.
NJ: Is the challenge more political than it is technological?
Gore: It’s fundamentally moral, ethical, and spiritual. To solve this crisis we cannot rely only on fact-based analysis and the kinds of short-term responses to which we are predisposed. We have to draw upon a capacity that we also have to form longer-term goals based on deep values, and build a sufficient consensus necessary to stay on a path toward those goals.
Perhaps because the latest “fact based analysis” shows a collapse of Gore’s pseudo-science? “Deep values” must refer to either religious beliefs (a core tenet of the environmental left) or perhaps the deep (cash) values Gore intends to earn by cornering the market of fraudulent instruments (carbon off-sets) his lobbying has created.
NJ: In the book, you are certainly skeptical that nuclear energy could grow to the magnitude that advocates such as Graham envision.
Gore: I am not an opponent of nuclear power…
Al Gore is an inveterate liar.
