Now we know that Global warming is very entertaining phenomena:
“More than 100 musical acts – including Madonna, Metallica, Kanye West and the Police – are set to perform to raise funds and awareness in the fight against global warming. More than a million are expected to attend, and organizers are predicting live broadcasts on cable television and the Internet could reach up to 2 billion people.”
I wonder, is that kind of concert eco-friendly in the first place?
As Czech President Vaclav Klaus said the “ fighting global warming has turned into a “religion” that replaced the ideology of communism and threatens to clip basic freedoms”
Global warming indeed became an apocalyptic “voodoo-style” religion for people who know nothing about climatology or science, and, therefore are not capable to know anything about global warming on coherent level.
Consequently, “believing” in global warming became a substitute for knowing facts about future of planet’s climate. People, who by education cannot comprehend scientific meaning of concept, “believe in global warming” in the same way as others believe in Jesus Christ or in Krishna. In the meantime, it is a scientific issue and it should be neither politicized nor “Hollywoodisized“.
Is this coming event just a ritual of new religion of Global warming believers??
In any way, like in other similar actions, money collected never will reach those for whom they were collected. This event is all about money and power
Making money on scientifically ignorant, politically active people, who prefer to believe in what they cannot understand (due to the lack of education), is a no less profitable and therefore no less money driven than pumping oil.
As Alston Chase put it “When the search for truth is confused with political advocacy, the pursuit of knowledge is reduced to the quest for power”
It is narcissistic (Me and Global Warming), politically demagoguery-driven event for those who would rather sing and dance than do something useful.
By the way, according to an independent, nonprofit and nonpartisan research organization The Tennessee Center for Policy Research
“Gore’s mansion, located in the posh Belle Meade area of Nashville, consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year, according to the Nashville Electric Service (NES)….
Last August alone, Gore burned through 22,619 kWh—guzzling more than twice the electricity in one month than an average American family uses in an entire year. As a result of his energy consumption, Gore’s average monthly electric bill topped $1,359.
….In total, Gore paid nearly $30,000 in combined electricity and natural gas bills for his Nashville estate in 2006.“
As Barbara Anderson of American Chronicle wrote “Gore received an Oscar for his film, “An Inconvenient Truth”, as the best documentary feature. Hollywood types love him. The inconvenient truth is that they arrived at the Oscars in very long air conditioned limos from their sprawling air conditioned estates, in many cases. If anybody should point this out, they could always take advantage of Gore’s convenient ploy of talking about his carbon footprint and how he mitigates his seemingly greedy consumption. The formula is a little complicated, but Gore says it is commendable and all those who can afford to pay $30,000 a year for energy can be assured that they are okay by Gore’s book.”

And now this guy wants to burn even more resources by putting himself in spotlight creating the mega concert? Does it remind you of another democratic star who is pays not even $400 as we thought before, but $1,000+ for a hair cuts and preaching helping poor in the same time, who is charging those silly people who want to know what this guy is thinking about poverty $50,000. That guy is John Edwards, if you haven’t guessed yet.
So let us summarize:
Al Gore is burning resources himself but preaching others to follow his Global Warming cult.
Another guy, John Edwards, spends more on haircuts than a whole family lives on for a week and preaches helping poor at the same time.
If it is not hypocrisy, what is it? I would really like to hear form other side any reasonable explanation.
