according to the superfreakonomics book al gore has spent 300 million dollars warning people about global warming and the cost to reverse it only costs 250 million
then again according to the bbc (although there source is extremely dubious due to it being down to a guy called monckton who was advising maggie thatcher on climate change) the temperature has only risen 0.75 degrees in a 130 years.
If its possible to take our world back from the scum we have to introduce MRI scanning so we can tell who is lying or not,
in fact wouldn't it be nice for everyone to stop working and go stand outside the worlds parliaments and demand that we introduce this right now, although that won't happen in a hurry

The Republican party and elitist would like to see us continuing to live as ignorant, scared and dependent upon what they are selling.. The environmental or ecological movement, as it was called when President James Earl Carter had solar panels placed on the roof of the White House, has always been hampered by lies perpetrated on the citizens by those who profit from the sale of non renewable energy... I readily recall that General Electric's trained monkey who took over the oval office by a manipulation of reality that the simple mind's that are easily fooled, removed the solar panels from the White House and was cheered for doing so.... The "drill baby drill" mentality instead of one that promotes affordable, clean, renewable energy sources makes good sense even if there was no truth of a climate change occurring... Global Warming is occurring....

After insisting once again that there is a consensus on Man-made Global Warming (while paradoxically comparing those not in consensus with those who deny the moon landing), Al Gore denies, downplays and refuses to discuss the role that CEOs played in crafting his Cap-and-Trade C02 trading schemes.
Rep. Scalise points out that Gore met with Ken Lay, of ENRON-fraud fame circa 1998, as well as top members of Goldman Sachs-- all of which Al Gore obscures and denies. In point of fact, Al Gore's founding partner in the sustainability-investment firm Generation Investment Management, LLC is none other than David Blood, CEO of Goldman Sachs' asset-management division until 2003. Gore-Blood founding their Carbon-trading Corp. in 2004. www.generationim.com...
Although Gore refuses to address the issue, Rep. Scalise makes a direct point in the fact that many of the people and associated firms that caused our current and widespread economic crisis were involved in developing this and other related proposals.
