Re: Living in denial: Why sensible people reject the truth

Lily, I could only get about 6 paragraphs before I stopped reading. I am one of the simple folks your article speaks of and I AM PROUD OF IT! Instead of typing out some long novel trying to answer your post, I will stick to just posting a list of facts. I am not a koolaid drinker and I'm not about to start now but I do hope some of the things that I post will open your eyes to the truth.

Al Gore is a liar. Just kidding, I was just seeing if you were paying attention.

Al Gore left office with less than $2 million in listed assets. Now his worth is estimated at over $100 million. He made a single investment of $35 million in a hedge fund.

Al Gore charges over $100,000(I've heard as much as $175,000) for each speaking engagement. If he is so passionate about global warming, why doesn't he just charge his expenses.

Al Gore wants you to ride a bike while he flies around in private jets.

Al Gore Sr. (AL Gore Jr.'s father) voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964.(How people voted seems to be the hot topic on MSNBC)

Numbers and percentages of D's and R's that voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

The original House version:[10] (for-against)

* Democratic Party: 152-96 (61%-39%)
* Republican Party: 138-34 (80%-20%)

Cloture in the Senate:[11]

* Democratic Party: 44-23 (66%-34%)
* Republican Party: 27-6 (82%-18%)

The Senate version:[10]

* Democratic Party: 46-21 (69%-31%)
* Republican Party: 27-6 (82%-18%)

The Senate version, voted on by the House:[10]

* Democratic Party: 153-91 (63%-37%)
* Republican Party: 136-35 (80%-20%)

It's obvious that Republicans are the racist by looking at this vote.

I will have more later.

Re: Living in denial: Why sensible people reject the truth

For all of you out there in America and across the globe who have fought
so hard to tackle the hideous enemy of our planet, namely carbon
emissions, that bogus god you worship named "Climate Change" or "Global
Warming", there is some really bad news that will be very painful for
you to process. But it is my duty to pass it on to you anyway.

Are you sitting down?

Okay, here's the bombshell. The current volcanic eruption going on in
Iceland, since it first started spewing volcanic has in one week's time,
NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to
control CO2 emissions on our planet. Not only that, this single act of
God has added emissions to the earth estimated to be 42 times more than
can be corrected by the extreme human regulations proposed for annual
reductions.

I know, I know.... (have a group hug)...it's very disheartening to
realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished
while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids,
buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up til midnight to finish your kid's
"The Green Revolution" science project, throwing out all of your
non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper,
putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV's. RV's,
powerboats, ceased driving classic cars and motorcycles for recreation,
going on vacation to a city park instead of Yosemite, nearly getting hit
every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your $1 light bulbs with $10
light bulbs ...well, all of those things you have done have all gone
down the tubes in just the past week.

The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth's atmosphere in the past week
has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil
beast, carbon. And, those hundreds of thousands of American jobs you
helped move to Asia with expensive emissions demands on businesses...
you know, the ones that are creating even more emissions than when they
were creating American jobs, well that must seem really worthwhile now.

I'm so sorry. And I do wish that there was some kind of a silver lining
to this volcanic ash cloud but the fact of the matter is that the brush
fire season across the western U.S.A. will start in about two months and
those fires will negate your efforts to reduce carbon emissions in our
world for the next two years.

So, grab a Coke, give the world a hug, and have a nice day!

Might want to add some Jack to it. It'll help the truth go down easier.
