Al Gore: “Bitter cold” is “exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis”

Anonymous said:

Al Gore has weighed in on the record cold and snow in the U.S. “It’s bitter cold in parts of the US, but climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann explains that’s exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis,” Gore wrote on Twitter.

In the Gore touted article, Mann linked the cold and “lots of snow” to “climate change.” Gore’s Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth did not warn of record cold and increasing snowfalls as a consequence of man-made global warming. And as recently as 2009, Gore was hyping the lack of snow as evidence for man-made global warming. Source: “Gore Reports Snow and Ice Across the World Vanishing Quickly.”

HE TOLD US THAT SNOW WAS GOING TO BE A THING OF THE PAST

Typical liberal logic. “The reason it is cold is because of “global warming”

How dare you speak about the creator of the internet this way. And on the internet of all places. Can you even see the irony?

You idiots need to stop running that one up your BS pole.

Before 1991 the internet was used exclusively by the military and major research institutions. Then the High Performance Computing Act of 1991 was enacted. Often referred to as the Gore Bill, it was created and introduced by then Senator Al Gore, and led to the development of the National Information Infrastructure and the funding of the National Research and Education Network (NREN).

Gore’s legislation also helped fund the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois, where a team of programmers, including Netscape founder Marc Andreessen, created the Mosaic Web browser, the commercial Internet’s technological springboard. “If it had been left to private industry, it wouldn’t have happened,” Andreessen says of Gore’s bill, “at least, not until years later.”

When Gore was trying to get his bill passed, most of the other senators and congressmen had never even heard of the internet. Gore saw the potential of the internet beyond its’ military and academic uses.

Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn (the inventors of TCP/IP) wrote: “As far back as the 1970s Congressman Gore promoted the idea of high-speed telecommunications as an engine for both economic growth and the improvement of our educational system. He was the first elected official to grasp the potential of computer communications to have a broader impact than just improving the conduct of science and scholarship …. the Internet, as we know it today, was not deployed until 1993. When the Internet was still in the early stages of its deployment, Congressman Gore provided intellectual leadership by helping create the vision of the potential benefits of high speed computing and communication. As an example, he sponsored hearings on how advanced technologies might be put to use in areas like coordinating the response of government agencies to natural disasters and other crises.”

President Eisenhower did not invent highways, nor was he an engineer or architect. However, Eisenhower did provide the political leadership necessary for the creation of the Interstate Highway System. Al Gore provided the political leadership necessary for the creation of the internet as we now know it.

Here’s something else for the record.

Standing Ovation as Trump Touts End of Death Tax: ‘Keep Your Farms in the Family’

farm

This is how pathetic Donald Trump’s sad attempt to play a president on TV has become, he’s now having to beg audiences to give him a standing ovation — and having to lie to the people to make it sound like he did something wonderful for them to justify it.

This is the same lie he and other Republicans have been telling about the estate tax forever, that it’s all about protecting those poor small family farmers, not the super rich like him. Every fact-checking services has called this a baldfaced lie.

In fact, this year only about 80 farms and small businesses would be affected by the estate tax at all.

The overwhelming majority of the estate tax is paid by mega-rich people like Trump and his children. There probably wasn’t a single person in that audience who was even close to being hit with the estate tax if they die, which is probably why he had to beg them to stand up and applaud his lie.

San Francisco SPCA Now Using Robots To Remove Homeless Americans Off Sidewalks

Anon said:

Huh? I didn’t see a robot capable of getting out of its own way not less one capable differentiating a homeless person from a mailbox. Don’t you know how to squeeze your butt cheeks together so people can’t blow smoke up your ass? Talk about Fake News the SPCA robotic mechanization amounts to nothing more than vandal bait and that’s the only way that thing would be instrumental in removing a homeless person from the street… That’s catching said homeless person in the act of vandalizing it.

Why more people aren’t talking about the Asian oil spill as big as Paris

oil spill
The Iranian oil tanker Sanchi is engulfed in fire in the East China Sea, on Jan. 13, 2018.

It’s an oil spill the size of Paris. But only now is the world’s attention catching up with the vast scale of the disaster in the East China Sea — the largest tanker spill in decades.

The crash itself happened weeks ago when an Iranian tanker called the Sanchi collided with a Chinese freighter on January 6 and burst into flames, later sinking. Thirty-two crew members are presumed dead.

It’s a different kind of oil spill, though, and that’s what’s causing concern. Almost one million barrels of condensate were on board, an especially flammable type of light oil.

The spill took place in the East China Sea, an important fishery area for China, Japan and South Korea. (Google Maps)

“There’s a lot we don’t know about a major condensate spill because we’ve never seen one. This is the first,” says Richard Steiner, an Alaska-based marine scientist and an oil spill consultant.

“This is a very big deal.”

Light oil is hard to see, making it difficult to know where it is or where it has travelled.

“I’m sure the toxic plume that dissolved in the water column has already spread over hundreds of square miles of the East China Sea,” Steiner says.

“There has been serious ecological injury.”

Where has the toxic oil gone?

The point of life is to procreate, and in the case of Homo Sapiens that also entails nurturing their creations until they are mature enough to do the same. In the grand scheme of things, once the living outlives its ability to procreate it has outlived its usefulness and its continued existence is of diminishing value that is eventually remedied by death.

If Procreation is Job 1 of life, then Eating is Job 2. When life expires, be it microbial or a more advanced turd factory, something needs to deal with the carcass of the deceased or the world would have long ago run out of storage capacity. Eating is a essential part of the circle of life which makes the continuance of life possible.

With the exception of animal flesh and green leafy vegetation, everything the human turd factory ingest comes from the reproductive or sexual organs of plants because that is where a lot of pent-up energy of the plant is stored. Biblically Speaking all of humanity’s turd making supplies can be had without killing. Pluck some apples from a tree, in the grand scheme of things you are doing the tree a favor.

If life becomes overly successful at flourishing the Grand Scheme has a routine it runs to correct the situation. For instance, weevils trapped in a sack of flour experience exponential population growth but end up dying off long before they exhaust their food supply. They simply croak in their own waste. Humanity’s growth and bastardization of the natural world now make it impossible to insulate itself from its own waste stream. Pretty much everything a person might eat, drink, breath or bathe in has been degraded.

I hope I answered your question.

According to a television commercial, the average funeral now cost more than eleven thousand dollars. They are selling life insurance of course. I’m not planing on checking out anytime soon, but my disbelieving nature led me to check the veracity of their cost claim. Turns out the commercial was not exaggerating the financial drawback of kicking the bucket, however like everything else you can shop around for a better deal.

If you are going to up and die without any saving or an estate with a will for it’s allocation, unless they donate your body to science you will still setback those who take responsibility for your remains a few thousand for the cost of a cremation. If that’s the case you should not be annoyed if the responsible party flushes your ashes down the toilet and sells the urn to recoup some of their losses.

I paid 15 grand for a very cheap, small funeral. And I already pre-owned and had prepaid for the plot and headstone!

I check my comments pretty often and all I’m getting is spam, which my spam filter quarantines until I delete them. The comment I’m replying to here doesn’t seem to be of the automated variety or even that spammy, so why did it get filtered?

Could it be the spam filter don’t like this (ddkkfkccdkdc) type cruft, it certainly has no use in a normal comment. That’s why I edited it out of the comment above. Most likely it could be the fact that the IP associated to this commenter was on a spammer blacklist.
