Wisdom from the Realm

An Unintended Consequence

with 38 comments

I just finished watching Al Gore’s interpretation of global warming and it reminds me of how adept politicians are in the art of misdirection and spin. There are many things you can learn about Al Gore from the film, but I’m sure it is purely an unintended consequence.

Al Gore still carries a grudge about the Presidential election. He is definitely a man on a mission with his sights set on getting even with the country that rejected him. This was substantiated by the number of erroneous attacks against the US using his favorite weapon – global warming.

Throughout the film, he incorporated a popular method used by those that want to perpetrate a good deception. In an effort to inform about global warming he mixes lies and speculations with truth. Of course at this point the audience is left with the task of trying to distinguish fact from fiction. One example is that he presents his case using high tech graphs. It was certainly a presentation to be proud of until you realize what was really happening. There was no way to verify the data that the graph represented and the grandiose end was pure speculation. Although it was a nice piece of showmanship, the graph proved nothing.

He moved on to hurricane Katrina that hit New Orleans in 2005. This hurricane caused a great deal of damage, no one can deny this fact. But what he failed to mention is that the city of New Orleans have been receiving federal funds for many years for the specific purpose of strengthening the levee walls. Instead the money had been misappropriated and was being used for social programs. Could it be that he conveniently didn’t bother to mention this because it was the democrat party running the show. No one can say for sure, but had the money been used properly to strengthen the levee walls, then the chances are greatly increased that the flood might never have happened. If you are going to include the flooding of New Orleans in a film about global warming then at least give the full story. The only thing proved here is that hurricanes exist and politicians are corrupt.

The most reprehensible and of course vintage Al Gore is at one point he offered this famous quote of Winston Churchill and equated it to global warming.

“The era of procrastination, of half-measures, of soothing and baffling expedients, of delays, is coming to a close. In its place we are entering a period of consequences.”

Anyone familiar with this quote knows that Churchill was warning that it was foolish to trust Adolph Hitler. He warned that time was growing short and there would be consequences if they were not prepared in case Hitler unleashed his army on Europe. As you can see Al Gore took this quote completely out of context which proves that he is not above using a little misdirection. The reason he committed such a blatant act of deception is that he needed the words of a visionary the stature of Winston Churchill. The irony is that from what I have learned from the writings of Winston Churchill is that I doubt he would agree with anything Al Gore had to say about anything.

Well, that’s all Al Gore deserves of my time so if you want to judge for yourself watch the film on the internet… it’s free. The value of the time wasted is another matter.

On your quest for wisdom you must understand that there are many charlatans in the world. They take on many forms and prey on people that have a void to fill in their life. They will sell you anything if only you are willing to believe. A wise man will ask questions until satisfied that he has obtained the proper facts. From reliable facts you get truth.

  1. Sorry you felt that way Lord Crimson. Surprised you found it hard to empathise with Al Gore and his concern for the planet. It is enitrely valid to use a famous line by Churchill in describing a brewing storm on the continent. I think analogies can be useful – and Churchill was a great orator. It isn’t fair to say the the movie is full of lies when climate scientists are generally quite happy with the even handed nature of the movie.

  2. Hi Verdurous

    Like you, I certainly want the best for the planet because as you well
    know where else are we going to go? For me, Al Gore is not a great vehicle of persuasion mainly because of his reputation for conjuring facts to fit his arguments. If I believe that someone has real facts that should be considered, then I’m there. But anyone that uses deceit to prove their point deserves to be revealed for what they are.

  3. Hi y’all,

    Come on, how can you not trust the man who invented the Internet?

    I had an interesting experience concerning the flooding of New Orleans. At the time, my son was attending college in the Big Easy, and brought a couple of dozen of his closest friends home with him to ride out the storm (I live near Memphis, Tn) We were all watching the news when they reported the levee break. The first words out of one young man’s mouth (a native of the city) were, “they blew up the levee.” That was long before any reports on that rumor. There is something seriously odd going on down there.

    Ahh Tennessee, may I offer my gratitude to your state for it’s good judgment. How embarrassing it must be for Al Gore to lose his home state in a presidential election. It certainly helps explain that grudge he still carries.

    Yes, New Orleans is a strange place. After all they went through, I was literally speechless when Mayor Nagin was re-elected. I may be giving them to much credit, but the only thing I can see is that they figured since he helped create the mess, let him clean it up. No, I am wrong, they also re-elected the freezer king, William Jefferson.

  5. Hello all,

    I am really sadden by Lord Crimson’s view on the documentary. I’m not an American. So, I don’t really care much about who did the presentation or whether the presenter used to be a presidential candidate of the United States or whether he has any hidden agenda. I hope the audience of this documentary would not miss the real issue presented and end up focusing on the presenter instead. We are talking about global warming and climate change. Not Al Gore’s political agenda.

    Entering the period of consequences we are. That is what the rest of the world who join the Kyoto protocol are working to resolve while the biggest contributor of green house gas sits and watch and discuss about presidential election. Scientific data and evidents do not lie because all the data are transparently presented to the world, to be judged by peer scientists and to you all. I am a bit amused by Lord Crimson’s claim about “to seek wisdom is to seek understanding”. Please dig a bit deeper on the “seek understanding” part about global warming and climate change before making the claim that “I can create a graph to prove anything I want” and “mixes lies and speculations with truth”. I really don’t mind that you like to scorn Al Gore. I have my own political stand in my own country as well. But please don’t discredit global warming issue just to hit out on Al Gore.

    Global warming IS happening. Please, everyone, seek more understanding. You can make a difference. Your future depends on it.

    Welcome to the Realm – you amuse me.

    It is true that Al Gore and global warming was the base topic, but my intent was to challenge people to think for themselves. To question those that mix facts with speculation and truth with misdirection. To always look past the obvious into motivations.

    I question the motives of those behind the Kyoto Protocol. I question the predictions of scientist and climatologist. These same people said that in 2006 there would be hurricanes of a monumental scale that would hit the US coastline and would cause widespread destruction. They were wrong, and that was only a one year prediction. How can I not question them about a long term event like global warming? How can I not question their data?

    I know that you believe global warming exists and that’s fine. As for me, I’m not yet convinced. But I am confident that more is going on behind global warming than meets the eye. It is often a good idea to step back and look at the entire picture and not stay focused on that part in the far left corner.

  7. Thank you for the insight on this film. I am yet to see it, and I have been uninterested in seeing it for the fact that Al Gore is the narrator. The suggestions you have made about Al Gore mixing “lies and speculation with the truth” are not unlike Gore at all. It was clear from the previews that Gore is using this issue as a political tool probably for what you have suggested, that is, to retaliate conservatives for losing the 2000 election. I look forward to reading more on your blog.

  9. Hi There, Peoples of the Earth,

    It’s not Al Gore or Lord Crimsom speaking. It’s Mother Earth. It’s neither politics nor religion. It’s Mother Earth sending each of us, if we dare to listen, a “Wake-Up Call.” Blizzards are striking Colorado killing thousands of livestock, stalling transportation, while Spring like conditions exist in the East. Alaska is crumbling, forests are dying, and ice is melting. Wake-up my friends!

    Scientists are knocking at our doors with factual information. Videos are showing us first hand what is occurring around the globe. Time is PRECIOUS. If this is a NATURAL process, so be it. We can adjust. If this is caused by rapidly growing civilizations, we can adjust. But we must not fight each other with intellectual nonsense and bad mouthing.

    We all know that Earth is changing more rapidly then usual. Something is amiss. We must work HONESTLY, get our UNIVERSITIES to construct a Global Team of highly distinguished people and make a report to the Planet. We must take some form of action and put our God-given talents to work.

    It’s time for mankind to stop intellectual duality and look at the divine aspects of unity consciousness. If for chance, global warming is rapidly occurring, we all will soon be forced into the same situation for survival where money, fame, politics, and religion will finally have to come into agreement with each other or perish in their arguments.

  10. Welcome to the Realm

    You make some interesting suggestions, but offer no proof that what you say is true. I’m afraid the listing of momentary weather conditions or normal earth activities do not persuade.

    The earth has been changing since it’s creation, so to say it is changing more rapidly than usual is not factual. The real fact is no one can possibility prove this statement and to say “we all know” is just another in the long line of illusions equated to global warming.

    If you have any real proof then I would be more than happy to listen, but as it stands the world has more than enough problems to overcome without chasing phantoms.

  13. Hi Lord Crimson,

    Your petition for me to research some facts about global warming motivated me to find an enormous amount of creditable literature.

    Human civilizations have a direct relationship with global warming. In 1800 AD, the Earth’s population was approximately 990,000,000. Light pollution did not exist then as it does now. In less than 200 years it increased to 6,000,000,000. That’s an exponential rate of growth and accounts for a myriad of behaviors stimulating increased Earth changes including overpopulation, food, water, and fuel, to mention the obvious.

    I request now that you substantiate your position regarding global warming. It was not clearly stated. Please do support your findings and omit frivolous citing and articles.

  14. Greetings to Dr Gerard

    I see that you have hit upon a major inconsistency equated to the global warming movement. You claim that higher population accounts for increased earth changes such as global warming. For the sake of discussion let’s say you are right.

    China’s population is 1.3 billion, India’s population is 1.1 billion and the US population is 300 million. Why does the Kyoto Protocol sponsored by the United Nations allow China and India not to be obligated, but scream like a banshee when the US doesn’t sign on?

    How can anyone take seriously the United Nations and as an extension environmentalist that give 1/3 of the earth’s population a free pass, if population is a direct cause of global warming?

    Could it be that global warming is really a political issue devised by the UN as a way to plunder and cripple the economy of a specific list of developed nations?

  15. Lord Crimson,
    your gift at playing “devil’s advocate” is amusing. You have openly rejected the overall consesus of credited scientists all over the world and the facts that they present. Thats fine. You explain why you are full of doubt. But in debate and classical arugmentation you forgot one major thing. you said, “A wise man will ask questions until satisfied that he has obtained the proper facts. From reliable facts you get truth.” Obviously seem satisfied that global warming is a hoax. So im asking a question. Where are YOUR facts?

  16. Hi omsteady – Welcome to the Realm

    I’m afraid you pose a vexed question. You and I know that there are no facts that prove or disprove that global warming is a danger. Scientist can only prove that climate change is happening, but the rest is speculation.

    If science proved global warming was a danger then no scientist would be able to dispute the findings. Science is not a consensus, it is or it isn’t. You only have consensus in politics.

    This is why global warming is such a good vehicle for deception. You can play on people’s emotions and natural instincts for survival. By getting people to think on an emotional level deceivers like Al Gore can play them like a Stradivarius.

    I just don’t like to see ambitious trolls take advantage of people.

  17. hi lord crimson,
    i have been studying the differences in opion when it comes to global warming for sometime now. Its funny how a paper i am writing for my adv comp class has provided me with some amazing insight on the subject. The assignment was to right a paper on a recent film and argue its point or disagree with it.

    An Inconvenient Truth…ha…it was amazing what i found. You’re right…Facts are obviously missing form this equation or there would be no debate. Its all in the argument and the fallacies in gore’s arguments have never been so clear. and not to mention the film’s “confutatio” was more than lacking.
    I’d like to thank you for your insight and i will continue to read your posts in my search for the truth.

  21. recently watched gore’s film.

    for starters, i found this forum as i have been searching for some genuine reference for the churchill quote used in gore’s movie. can’t seem to find one. it does sound like something church would say, but doesn’t seem to be a record of it anywhere.

    couple of points relating to the actual topic……

    as posed by lord crimson:

    “China’s population is 1.3 billion, India’s population is 1.1 billion and the US population is 300 million. Why does the Kyoto Protocol sponsored by the United Nations allow China and India not to be obligated, but scream like a banshee when the US doesn’t sign on?”

    well i think we (the US) are producing quite a bit more in pollution than those nations. not sure really but that would be my guess. seems like every thing i buy is made in china though.

    also posed:

    “Could it be that global warming is really a political issue devised by the UN as a way to plunder and cripple the economy of a specific list of developed nations?”

    highly doubtful. the UN can barely enforce sanctions on a third world nation. plus, those “developed nations” all play a role in what the UN does. anything enforced or brought to vote is always a public discussion. they don’t go around doing covert operations. that would be a bit beyond what they are capable of.

    also as far as crippling the economy, there are probably ways around that anyway. i think it will be possible to come up with alternate methods of transportation, and mass production and still achieve the same production levels without doing the environment harm. don’t ask me how though, maybe my son will figure it all out.

    i don’t have any scientific data to back it up, but i would think global warming is taking place and we are going to wish it wasn’t. it’s harder for me to believe that all the production and activity taking place on this planet isn’t having some sort of consquence than for me to believe everything is fine and nothing is going to happen. too bad none of us will be around to see what actually happens.

    p.s. Al, if your reading this… even mondale won his own state!!! what the hell is wrong with you!!!!

  22. Hi kev cole – Welcome to the Realm

    The Churchill quote can be found in the first volume titled “The Gathering Storm” which is part of a six volume set titled “The Second World War.”

    I’m not sure how you come to the conclusion that 300 million people can create more pollution than 2.4 billion people.

    Many of the UN members believe it is their mission to redistribute money from developed countries into the hands of the underdeveloped ones. They believe it is unfair that one country should have more than another. It doesn’t matter that country A took steps toward prosperity while country B does nothing but receive foreign aid. For some reason that only the socialist mind can fathom they feel by crippling the economy of country A benefits country B. The Kyoto Protocol is such an attempt.

    Climate change is occurring, it always has. The theory of global warming on the other hand is being used by those that seek both political and financial advantage.

  23. i don’t know much about global warming. i’ve read a couple of books about it but other than that…and watched An Inconvenient Truth. i don’t know what to say, there are sooo many opinions about global warming yet so little. i don’t know if everything in An Inconvenient Truth is totally true, but when i think about all the pollution in the world…i really wonder how anyone can think that sometime it won’t have any effect…even if it’s years into the future.
    like i said…i don’t know much but…
    i dunno, maybe i’m crazy…right.

    oh, and i hope that Al Gore isn’t full of…well….yeah. because he really has a talent for speaking. i like to expect the best in people…one of my faults/not faults.

    It’s easy to get caught up in the hype of global warming especially when you’re being bombarded with it from every direction. The best way to judge the whole thing is to look at the motivations of those pushing global warming and environmentalism.

    Al Gore has proved that he is not willing to live the lifestyle he demands from us. This should give us a clue and probably the whole story about Al Gore.

  25. Hi LC,

    Gore buys carbon indulgences, so you can’t fault him for that. Sure, he buys them from himself, but that’s just business. Besides, considering all the money he’s raking in from fear mongering, if pressed, he could probably afford to pay double just to silence his critics. Really, besides his book and movie royalties, his speaking fees, and the profits from his carbon credit company, he’s also a payed consultant to the British Government. I wonder if he still grows tobacco? Not that it matters, since smoking is carbon neutral.

  26. Wow. To all those who have bought in to this religion; in science, there is NO such thing as a consensus. Man-made Global Warming is, and has always been a political issue. In the 70’s it was global cooling, then it was global warming and now that more people are recognizing how stupid the warming term is when it’s 30 degrees outside with 3 feet of snow on the ground, the Goracles have adopted the term “Global Climate Change”. This covers all the bases, hot or cold. It’s completely ridiculous. I haven’t watched An Inconvenient Truth, I’m currently using the DVD as a coaster.

    Gore’s time with the great horned one, Bill Clinton has given him illusions of greatness. Everybody needs a hobby, but it would be nice if his was more of a benefit to mankind than a grand hoax against it.

    We can never forget that Gore is and always will be a politician. Now that he has more money than he could spend in three lifetimes, the only thing left is to satisfy his lust for power. I would be very surprised if he doesn’t at least consider it.

  32. I came upon this site in search for that very ‘Churchill quote’. I find it to be a fitting and appropriate quote to use in these circumstances. Quotes are there for us, the newer generations, to use and learn from, and that is exactly what Al Gore did. May be that it is ‘out of context’ but it’s use in Gore’s presentation puts it at far better use than ever before. Gore doesn’t need the status of Churchill to gain anything, Churchill just said those words first and Gore saw that it was fitting and able to be presented in this case.

    Furthermore, you speak of charlatans that would ‘sell you anything if only you are willing to believe’, but my friend, are you not one yourself? Speaking to us of your own speculative opinions, with the intention of getting us to believe that what you say is true. How sure are you that Al Gore’s ‘high tech graphs’ are ‘pure specualation’? Are you a scientist? Do you actually go and do research on the atmosphere? Do you have the proper tools to prove that the information given in those graphs are untrue? I believe you are not and that you cannot. You were not amongst those scientists that conducted the research, therefore you cannot say that they prove nothing.

    I have much respect for Al Gore. He, at least, tries to make some difference, and he has the power and popularity to do so. He speaks for a great majority of people on this planet and not just the American nation. A noble gesture if you ask me.

    Would anyone rather no one say anything about the current situation of our planet and allow it to escelate into something even worse? There is no more time too see the negative in a flim/documentary that was created to bring a positive reaction. Rather waste your time in thinking about what is true than what is speculation, and act on that. Trying to prove someone wrong when the facts are there and they are substantiated is foolhardy at best. It only shows that you cannot come to the terms of reality.

    Al Gore’s intentions are more suitable than that of the current U.S. president. For one, he cares more for the environment than he does of ‘weapons of mass destruction’ in some run down Mid-Eastern country like a certain someone we all know.

    That’s all for now.

  33. Hi jj

    I suppose it all comes down to you believe that global warming will be the death of us all if we don’t do something now. I certainly have no intention of trying to convince you otherwise. That’s the wonderful thing about free will, you can jump on the train or not. I can only speak from my perspective.

    I have no reason to believe that global warming is anything but a hoax. The track record of fear presented by environmentalist over the past half century has given me no cause to expect this hoax to be anything more than what was represented in the past.

    The Churchill quote was relevant in his time and I would hope a man of Al Gore’s education could at least create one that is relevant in his.

    I’m not sure what difference Al Gore has made other than lining his pockets with undeserved wealth. He demands we live the green way and continues his life as normal. He simply uses this carbon credit nonsense to add to the illusion.

    The world has always taken care of itself and it is arrogant beyond measure to think that what light bulb I use would change the balance of nature.

    The only global warming I am concerned about is which idiot will be the first to light off a series of nuclear weapons. If you want to worry about global warming you might turn your attention in that direction.

    You made some interesting points and it was a privilege to read what you had to say. Thanks for stopping by.

  34. I personally think you are insane. Your mind doesn’t seem to work the right way. But my opinions about you will be short lived because, well I am not the type to keep attacking the person and neglecting the real issue. And now I know more than ever that trying to help others understand the issue of global warming means spending more time on education itself. You seem well education in writing, history, and current political affairs but you have been failed to be educated in science. It’s not your fault. You might haven grown up in a time when there wasn’t much education in science, or you just didn’t pay attention in a simple Earth Science course. Now as for your needing proof of the graphs and charts that you saw in the film, it’s call the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It’s a place were someone can get objective information about the causes of climate change. You can access all of their reports and read them. Guess what? They are based on scientific evidence ( something that you wanted). Wow, amazing. So how about educating yourself on something else besides how to put someone down and being a prick. And I don’t want to hear you say that the information in the IPCC is corrupt or whatever pessimistic ideas you may have on them because by saying that you are being contradicting, and it’s really annoying. This is an entire panel of scientists who are giving you evidence. So seeing that you have no science background, I don’t expect you to come up with your own experiments to disprove their findings, so how are you going to believe that global warming is real? Maybe you never will and that’s sad but don’t bring others down with you. Some people will try to do what they can to save what they care about and they don’t need you feeding negative thoughts in the world.

    You certainly have the gift of persuasion in winning someone over to your side of an issue. How can I express my gratitude for you not spending too much time flaunting insults while providing little in the way of substance. As it happens, my education is exceptional and has served me well in many areas. Yours on the other hand seems the one in need of attention.

    It’s really no more complicated than the dangers claimed of global warming is political manipulation, not science. The earth goes though natural cycles and man couldn’t change that if he tried. If you would like to follow in lock-step the global warming tyrants of the world then don’t let me discourage you. Everyone needs a hobby.

  36. Hi LC,

    I can clearly see the point in which your trying to get across, and after having reading through all the comments and from re-watching the film I can now see the reasons why people think Al Gore is deceiving people with some of the so called facts said in the film and somehow it has now has made me think about the film in a different view, yes it has got many points which could and are getting people worried about are environmental state but on the other hand the way Al gore relates to his president ional campaign and his life makes you think that there is more of a gain for himself in this film than it was marketed as. The facts used in the film change people and I have seen the way in which this gives a sudden change in peoples views to the earth, as my science teacher made a complete u-turn in the way he acted and he tried to influence us as well into making many changes. I am only sixteen years old so maybe I don’t really know enough about global warming or what I do know is influenced by the media or people in high powerful jobs telling us all these shocking figures and this that and the other, but in the end something is happening to make vast ice masses to melt into the ocean it cant just be a coincidence can it?

  37. Hi Young One

    It’s easy to be confused by all this, especially with it hitting you from every direction. It may help if you consider the motives of those pushing the green lifestyle. You will discover that it has little to do with the environment but more with power, control, money, loss of freedom, religion and for the hardcore socialist – the destruction of the nation.

    Sure, ice is melting in one location and water is freezing in another. Since the beginning the earth has been doing it’s thing then suddenly in our generation we are told that our lifestyle is destroying the earth.

    Oil is vilified, but yet it is naturally produced by the earth so how can using it destroy the earth? Plants and trees survive on CO2 and need it as we do the oxygen they produce, so how can CO2 destroy the earth? Simple common sense rejects these environmental hoaxes and global scare tactics but yet they continue.

    As always with the environmental movement, it’s really never about the environment.

  38. Lord Crimson,

    coming across this blog 3 years after the first flurry of activity…I was interested in whether you still maintain the same perspective or whether some of the more recent environmental disasters had made you think twice?
