Gore Hypocrisy Rallies Wall Street

At 2:30 PM EST, the U.S. Senate Environment & Public Works Committee lets Al Gore pontificate for half an hour before taking a few questions. By all accounts (and there is video all over the internet) Sore Loserman implores, pleads and calls upon others to immediately act with moral courage. Are you ready to change the way you live?

When the well practiced emotional appeal is finished, Senator James Inhofe asks point blank if the former Vice President will to take his own personal energy ethics pledge.
Personal Energy Ethics Pledge: As a believer: that human-caused global warming is a moral, ethical, and spiritual issue affecting our survival; that home energy use is a key component of overall energy use; that reducing my fossil fuel-based home energy usage will lead to lower greenhouse gas emissions; and that leaders on moral issues should lead by example; I pledge to consume no more energy for use in my residence than the average American household by March 21, 2008.
Without the slightest pretense of humility Gore Refuses!!!! He rambles about being carbon neutral since he pays top dollar for green energy and purchases carbon offsets, but in the end he never agrees to change his own affluent lifestyle before the 2008 Presidential election. Let me be very clear, the political globalwarmists do not behave as if they believe their own words.

At 2:00 PM EST, the DOW Jones Industrial Average nudges into positive territory for the first time today. A bit later, at the same time as Al Gore is demonstrating his complete and total hypocrisy on camera, the market surges 144 points up on its way to a 159 point close. Coincidence? Simultaneous events must be related, right? Industrial activity and melting glaciers, ergo, cause and effect. It’s thinking so easy even a caveman can do it.

There are skeptics saying the market is actually reacting to the March Federal Open Market Committee press release and that Al Gore’s behavior is a minor contributing factor, if it is a meaningful contributor at all. Asking anyone to believe the skeptics, of course, would be like expecting the public to believe the Sun warms the Earth.
