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.
