How Al Gore Saved Christmas

The "Al Gore Effect" in action

http://www.climateaudit.org/?p=4718

"Obviously it's impossible to avoid the old chestnuts on our TV sets these days. I saw the original version of Miracle on 34th St for the umpteenth time the other day, noticing something for the first time that is a sign of the times. The judge's political handler, advising him of the political risks of the case, warned him that a decision against Kris Kringle would draw the ire of toy-makers, all unionized and all voters. How quaint.

It's also impossible to avoid the snow. We got hit with another snow storm yesterday and, for the first time in my life, I was pondering whether I should be thinking about planning my snow banks so that I'd have a place for the snow later in the season. (Through my life, it's never been an issue in Toronto, we don't get that much snow as we're in a bit of a shadow and what we get tends to come and go.) But last year we had snow banks into April and it became hard to figure out where to put the snow.

While thinking about this, I pondered about how Al Gore saved Christmas for us in Toronto, a story that's been told before, but it's the season for old stories."


If only Al Gore would use his powers for good, instead of evil

Yes.

In reply to: "Evil"?

And that is probably putting it mildly.

But I'm sure you have noticed critic411's (and some others) opinion of Al and everything he stands for. Those who are open to different thought and willing to consider other viewpoints, including Al's, are thought to be woefully uniformed, brainwashed, and even possibly of lower intellect .

Al holds a prominent place on their "Bad Guy List", which means that every negative story about him must be found and posted here.

The top post (by Roger NC, dated November 3, 2008) clearly says "verboten". Why not delete?

Clueless

No, he isn't a politician.

In reply to: Isn't Al Gore a politician?

Gore does not hold any political office, and is not running for an office. He is a private citizen with a Power Point presentation. He is not a scientist, but he does use a LOT of energy. He is famous for attracting extremely cold weather and/or record setting snow storms when he speaks at a particular location.

He also claimed that he invented the internet.
