Convenient Lies

The article starts with the following two paragraphs:
This Sunday, Al Gore will probably win an Academy Award for his global-warming documentary An Inconvenient Truth, a riveting work of science fiction.

The main point of the movie is that, unless we do something very serious, very soon about carbon dioxide emissions, much of Greenland’s 630,000 cubic miles of ice is going to fall into the ocean, raising sea levels over twenty feet by the year 2100.
From there, it goes on to say what I've been saying for years: EnvirusMentaless people don't care about facts. They want to control your life, and are using this lie to prevent you from driving a big car, or to make your air conditioning more expensive and more prone to failure. It is one big scam.

The last paragraphs is also telling:
When it comes to global warming, apparently the truth is inconvenient. And it’s not just Gore’s movie that’s fiction. It’s the rhetoric of the Congress and the chief executive, too.
This is not news to me. Whenever you hear them say, "Most scientists agree that global warming is happening," shoot back with, "Most biologists and psychologists might say so, but most climatologists say that the data doesn't support it."
Nowhere in the traditionally refereed scientific literature do we find any support for Gore’s hypothesis. Instead, there’s an unrefereed editorial by NASA climate firebrand James E. Hansen, in the journal Climate Change — edited by Steven Schneider, of Stanford University, who said in 1989 that scientists had to choose “the right balance between being effective and honest” about global warming — and a paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that was only reviewed by one person, chosen by the author, again Dr. Hansen.
Yep. Can't have scientists with other agendas actually telling the truth, can we? This shows that "global warming" is nothing more than a false construct to restrict your choices in air conditioning, fuel, manufacturing, and a host of other items.

In other words, man-made global warming is just a Convenient Lie.

Where's the weather gone these days? One never hears much about it anymore.

I wonder whether it will return soon.

The weather has gone by the wayside. LMAO. EnvirusMentaless, I like that, are all on the east coast digging out of the blizzard so I am guessing global warming is on hold for right now. ROFL. By the way Don I heard that AlGore isn't on the list of producers of his film so he won't be able to go on stage at the awards to accept the Oscar. I say he makes it up there no matter what or who is on the list IMO.

Commenter formerly known as ek,
Looks like you are right about algore. IMDB only lists him as a cast member. Here I was blissfully ignorant of all things Oscar. Now I may have to watch it to see if algore runs up and grabs the award.

I'm sure if Gore gets a chance, he'll push is way up on stage. He wouldn't be able to restrain himself, the ham that he is.

It's a wonder he's not nominated for the best animated object! ;)

The Oscars have shown themselves to be a political tool. They don't care if crockumentaries are true. They gave one to Michael Moore for his Anti-Bush screed, even thought it has been thoroughly debunked. They didn't care that it was all lies.

Ditto to "Convenient Lies," the Algore fiction that'll win this year.

I haven't watched an Oscar show since that Indian lady went up there to bitch about stuff instead of whatshisname going up to get his Oscar.

When does the right get equal time, as that's what stations are obligated to do for balance in political matters?

I'm not interested in watching anything Michael Moore has produced....then, now or in the future...I think my feelings about Moore are pretty obvious in my post of today, which I wrote and posted before reading your comment, Don! ;)

"Gore shared the stage with the film's director and executive producer, Davis Guggenheim, ..."

I didn't watch but from this I gather algore went on stage for the award. The press is usually hyper sensitve about 'intellectual property rights'. Seems like Davis should want this to be called his movie.

The Oscars have become no more than a "we're great, aren't we?" show, as well as a "stick the conservatives' noses in the dirt" show.

I don't even bother seeing who won what. It has nothing to do with talent, performance, or anything else. I bet Bruce Willis will never even be nominated, because of his political views.

So, the Oscars are now for "Best Actor who is Politically Correct and who we like," rather than for the best performance.

Algore did not write, produce, nor direct this propaganda. No intellectual or financial expense at all from him. Yet he steps in front of the thing and claims and is given full credit for it. On live TV. I wish I could ignore this stupidity but these people want to control my government.

Not just your government, GTO. They want to control your very life. The government control is just a means to that end.

I know that sounds paranoid, but I can see no other reason for anyone to be so intent on dictating the choices of others.
