What? Al Gore would LIE to get his way?

We knew it all along but here it is from the horse’s ass…

Nobel laureate Al Gore said this weekend that tax breaks for corn-based ethanol are “not good policy” and that he only supported these subsidies in order to assist his eventual run for president.

Reuters Africa reported Monday the former Vice President made these comments while speaking to a green energy conference in Athens.

“It is not a good policy to have these massive subsidies for first generation ethanol,” said Gore.

According to the International Energy Industry, such subsidies totaled $7.7 billion last year. Yet Gore now thinks this was a mistake.

“The energy conversion ratios are at best very small. It’s hard once such a program is put in place to deal with the lobbies that keep it going,” he said.

Readers are reminded that Gore was the tie-breaking vote in the Senate mandating the use of ethanol in 1994.

So why did the man media view as one of the world’s foremost environmentalists support such a program?

“One of the reasons I made that mistake is that I paid particular attention to the farmers in my home state of Tennessee, and I had a certain fondness for the farmers in the state of Iowa because I was about to run for president.”

What a saint.

So more than ten years ago, Gore supported an expensive, “not good policy” because he thought it would help him get elected president.

Yet media don’t believe he’d misrepresent the threat of manmade global warming in order to become extremely rich.

The bigger question is whether or not this matter will get any attention here in America, or if the Gore-loving media will choose to ignore this stunning revelation.

Stay tuned.

The BPA Threat Is Another Lie

Just as Co2 Is Not A Pollutant, BPA (Bisphenal A) is Not harmful. To anyone…

As always, when it doesn’t make sense, Follow The Money.

Big Surprise! Obama Lied…again

Hey B-HO, what about that C-SPAN open and transparent thingy? Yeah, just another lie, poser. When you make promises while running for office, and you don’t even keep one of them, it says a lot about the kind of person you are.

World’s Top Hypocrites Meet In Copenhagen

The world’s most arrogant and hypocritical people will meet in Copenhagen tomorrow to tell more of their lies. How can we take these liars and crooks seriously when they don’t even take what they are preaching seriously?

On a normal day, Majken Friss Jorgensen, managing director of Copenhagen’s biggest limousine company, says her firm has twelve vehicles on the road. During the “summit to save the world”, which opens here tomorrow, she will have 200.

“We thought they were not going to have many cars, due to it being a climate convention,” she says. “But it seems that somebody last week looked at the weather report.”

Ms Jorgensen reckons that between her and her rivals the total number of limos in Copenhagen next week has already broken the 1,200 barrier. The French alone rang up on Thursday and ordered another 42. “We haven’t got enough limos in the country to fulfil the demand,” she says. “We’re having to drive them in hundreds of miles from Germany and Sweden.”

And the total number of electric cars or hybrids among that number? “Five,” says Ms Jorgensen. “The government has some alternative fuel cars but the rest will be petrol or diesel. We don’t have any hybrids in Denmark, unfortunately, due to the extreme taxes on those cars. It makes no sense at all, but it’s very Danish.”

The airport says it is expecting up to 140 extra private jets during the peak period alone, so far over its capacity that the planes will have to fly off to regional airports – or to Sweden – to park, returning to Copenhagen to pick up their VIP passengers.

As well 15,000 delegates and officials, 5,000 journalists and 98 world leaders, the Danish capital will be blessed by the presence of Leonardo DiCaprio, Daryl Hannah, Helena Christensen, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Prince Charles. A Republican US senator, Jim Inhofe, is jetting in at the head of an anti-climate-change “Truth Squad.” The top hotels – all fully booked at £650 a night – are readying their Climate Convention menus of (no doubt sustainable) scallops, foie gras and sculpted caviar wedges.

But of course the biggest blowhard of them all won’t be there. Al Gore, who obviously knows his gig as head of the Global Warming Cult is coming to an end, has Tucked Tail and Gone Into Hiding. Haven’t heard a peep from him since Climategate was exposed.

CRU: What Data? Just Trust Us

I was going to start this out by saying Unbelievable, but in reality it is what a bunch of us have been saying all along. The ‘facts’ are based on lies and now we find out the original data the lies are based on have been destroyed. How inconvenient.

SCIENTISTS at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based.

It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years.

The UEA’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) was forced to reveal the loss following requests for the data under Freedom of Information legislation.

The data were gathered from weather stations around the world and then adjusted to take account of variables in the way they were collected. The revised figures were kept, but the originals — stored on paper and magnetic tape — were dumped to save space when the CRU moved to a new building.

The admission follows the leaking of a thousand private emails sent and received by Professor Phil Jones, the CRU’s director. In them he discusses thwarting climate sceptics seeking access to such data.

In a statement on its website, the CRU said: “We do not hold the original raw data but only the value-added (quality controlled and homogenised) data.”

The CRU is the world’s leading centre for reconstructing past climate and temperatures. Climate change sceptics have long been keen to examine exactly how its data were compiled. That is now impossible.

Roger Pielke, professor of environmental studies at Colorado University, discovered data had been lost when he asked for original records. “The CRU is basically saying, ‘Trust us’. So much for settling questions and resolving debates with science,” he said.

H/T Gateway Pundit

IPCC Fraud Exposed

Remember those 2500 “scientists” that support the findings about Global Warming? It’s only 62. And it gets better….err, worse…

Biden: Everyone Guessed Wrong

Well no sh!t Sherlock? You called it back in the first week of February. But we’ll get to that a bit later. First Gateway Pundit has this.

The US lost over 2.5 million jobs in the first four months of this year under the Obama Administration.
The US unemployment rate rose from 7.6% to 9.4% under Obama… the highest rate in 25 years.

Bureau of Labor Statistics– via Sweetness and Light
The US has lost 16,000 jobs each day since Democrats passed their non-Stimulus bill, the largest redistribution of wealth from the private sector to government officials in US history, without any House Republican votes.

Joe Biden admitted today that the Obama Administration was wrong on the stimulus.
TIME mag reported, via Free Republic:

Biden tells “Meet the Press” that “everyone guessed wrong” on the impact of the stimulus, economy was worse off than anyone thought.

Now to the Biden prediction. Biden was already in the CYA mode and was saying they would be wrong 30 % of the time. How prophetic. On February 6, 2009 I posted this.

Watch the video to see Vice President Joe “The Gaffe” Biden say that even if they get everything they want, they will still be wrong about a third of the time. And notice how David Axelrod sidesteps the question from Wolf Blitzer and gives the democratic talking points for the day. I first saw Obama’s press secretary Robert Gibbs use the exact same words this morning to dodge a question from the press. Axelrod even takes it one step further by taking the quote out of context. Here’s the video and the quote.

The president and I were talking about something yesterday in the Oval Office — which, to the press here, I’ll not suggest what it was — but the response was to the folks that were in the office with us — was, you know, if we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, we stand up there and we make really tough decisions, there’s still a 30-percent chance we’re going to get it wrong. You, too. You, too. Because I can’t think of a time, as a student of history — and I’ve participated in this business as long as almost anybody but my chairman from Michigan. I think I’ve been here — not a lot of you have served more than 36 years. TWS

Nowhere in that video does he say he’s talking about the stimulus bill. In fact it’s just the opposite, he says he won’t disclose what they were talking about. Again, watch Axelrod evade the question with the democrat talking points.

Hope & Change? Well there’s certainly no Hope if the new administration is going to be wrong a third of the time. And as for Change, just listen to Axelrod pull the same old democratic bullsh!t of changing the subject.

Do you still think this bunch of Chicago con-artist thugs are not taking us for the biggest ride in the history of the United States? They have a plan, and we’d better have one too.
