Al Gore Backs out of Copenhagen Global warming proponent Al Gore has backed out of the Copenhagen conference meeting that starts on December 7th. He was going to give a lecture about his new book "Our Choice", but he backed out on Tuesday. Tickets could run over $1200 to attend the lecture, meet Gore, and have pictures taken with him. Danish newspaper Berlingske reports that "Cancellation comes with regard to unforeseen changes in Al Gore's program for the climate summit." Links from VisitCopenhagen.com have been taken down regarding his lecture on December 16th. They did not inform anyone of the cancellation, they just took down the page without explanation.
An inconvenient truth, Al Gore’s energy consumption more than 20 times the national average
According to Al Gore and the “An inconvenient Truth” website www.climatecrisis.net, “Most emissions from homes are from the fossil fuels burned to generate electricity and heat. By using energy more efficiently at home, you can reduce your emissions and lower your energy bills by more than 30%.” He also lists a series of recommendations on how you can reduce your consumption of electricity and fossil fuels for heating, such as, "Use a clothesline instead of a dryer whenever possible." and "Replace a regular incandescent light bulb with a compact fluorescent light bulb (cfl)." And of course he leads by example, right? According to the Tennessee Center for Policy Research (TCPR), “Gore’s home consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year.” “Gore’s heated pool house alone uses more than $500 in electricity every month.” Gore's website states "The average American generates about 15,000 pounds of carbon dioxide every year from personal transportation, home energy use and from the energy used to produce all of the products and services we consume."
You know endisnighe, if this were a conspiracy site one could easily conclude that you're pimping for the oil corps ... IF this were a conspiracy site.
Mmm, so these hacked emails drop out of the sky a couple weeks before the Copenhagen thingie and the "ptb" have been caught with their pants down? Which ptb would that be? Sheesh, this used to be a conspiracy theory site back in the day

These particular ones have me baffled though. What's up?
Endisnighe, calm down, you're going to bust a blood vessel ...
Also, you know that as far as I'm concerned, whether the "green" industry takes my money or the oil/coal industry does it changes little.
