Chicken Little Al Gore-Bot Sez the World is Going to End

Earth Mother loving Al Gore-Bot (the inventor of the Internet) is on a "Global Warming" crusade, and has warned the Mayors of the world to fight it.
Former Vice President Al Gore urged an assembly of international mayors to fight global warming Saturday, warning of catastrophic consequences for the planet if governments fail to act. Gore, who helped draft the landmark Kyoto treaty on global warming that the United States never ratified, said that climate change was already melting glaciers, raising temperatures and altering weather patterns worldwide.

Without significant action, he said, the planet would see a dramatic increase in violent storms, infectious disease, deadly heat waves and rising sea levels that will force the evacuation of low-lying cities such as Calcutta, Shanghai and New York City within decades.

"We are witnessing a collision between our civilization and the earth, a transformation of the relationship between our species and the planet," Gore warned. "Is it only terrorists that we're worried about? Is that the only threat to the future that is worth organizing to respond to?"

Gore, who lost the 2000 presidential election to George W. Bush, played a major role in crafting the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, which requires countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 7 percent below 1990 levels by 2012.

The treaty, which was signed by more than 140 countries, went into effect without United States support. The Bush administration opposes the treaty because officials believe it would raise energy prices and cost 5 million U.S. jobs.

Gore said nearly all scientists agree that climate change is happening and argued that tackling the problem would not hurt the economy, noting that corporations such as General Electric have begun to recognize the gravity of the threat. He said the challenge could be met with existing technologies, but so far many governments have not had the political will to act.

"Our civilization is at risk," Gore said. "We can't just continue the same old way.

Dr. Peter Venkman: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.
Mayor: What do you mean, "biblical"?
Dr Ray Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath-of-God type stuff.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Exactly.
Dr Ray Stantz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies. Rivers and seas boiling.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Forty years of darkness. Earthquakes, volcanoes...
Winston Zeddemore: The dead rising from the grave.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together - mass hysteria.

Al stole his lines from Ghostbusters!!

Al is soooo stupid, that not only did he buy into the junk science "Global Warming" shtick, but he is perpetuating the scare to save his precious Kyoto Protocols. This has nothing to do with saving the world and has all to do with hyping the Protocols that are yoking industrial nations with huge expenses that are unnecessary. I can just see him spitting out the words, like a raving lunatic: "We are witnessing a collision between our civilization and the earth, a transformation of the relationship between our species and the planet". Excuse me, Al baby, but I have a pretty good feeling that the Earth can take care of itself without your meddling or ranting, plus the Earth and civilization will be here long after you blow a fuse or short out. And believe it or not, civilization doesn’t need your help either. So take a long vacation, grow a beard, slap Tipper and leave the thinking to people that are able to do it rationally using REAL facts and not just junk science.
