Global warming skeptics fire back at Al Gore

Global warming skeptics are hitting back at former Vice President Al Gore, who earlier this week compared them to racists and supporters of slavery.

“Gore is still trying to demonize and smear skeptics as modern racists and generally evil people,” Marc Morano, publisher of Climate Depot, a global warming skeptic site, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “The problem is that the science is revealing Gore to be on the wrong side of history.”

“Al Gore has shown once again why he is seldom let out of his box without adequate adult supervision,” said Myron Ebell, director of global warming and international environmental policy at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. “When he is losing the debate, Gore has always resorted to nasty name calling, so this is just the latest embarrassing instance.”

In an interview with the Washington Post’s Ezra Klein, Gore equated his fight against global warming to the struggles against slavery, segregation and apartheid.

Thus disagreeing with Gore about environmental policy is similar to opposing civil rights, gay rights and the end of slavery.

Sounds like Mr. Gore is simply following Saul Alinsky's 'Rules for Radicals' playbook by smearing his opponents. Except for actual Nazis and racists, who wants to be labeled as such? We see what you are doing there Mr. Gore.

I hope John doesn't mind, but this sentence from his earlier post bares repeating here:

"What we must understand is this suppression of free thought and rational debate is not meant to achieve uniformity of thought, but to crush dissent. As British historian Alan Bullock noted, “No one understood better than [Soviet dictator Josef] Stalin that the true object of propaganda is neither to convince nor even to persuade, but to produce a uniform pattern of public utterance in which the first trace of unorthodox thought immediately reveals itself as a jarring dissonance.”

"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

-C. S. Lewis

History may very well show that no one has ever before become so wealthy by being so wrong. Gore has made more money in the last 10-15 years from spreading his global warming scam than any of us could hope to make in our life time. All he needs are weak, gullible, and dumb people. I give you, the planet earth.
