In the “you can’t make this stuff up” file, Al Gore showed up in Congress to plead to his Democrat buddies that “action must be taken” before the world reaches the point of no return. But here’s what he said:
“It is a challenge that this Congress must rise to,” Gore said. “I wish I could find the words to get past the partisan divide that both sides have contributed to. … It shouldn’t be partisan. It should be something we do together in our national interest.”
Nice words. But what happened 24 hours earlier?
UK’s Lord Christopher Monckton, a former science advisor to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, claimed House Democrats have refused to allow him to appear alongside former Vice President Al Gore at a high profile global warming hearing on Friday April 24, 2009 at 10am in Washington. Monckton told Climate Depot that the Democrats rescinded his scheduled joint appearance at the House Energy and Commerce hearing on Friday. Monckton said he was informed that he would not be allowed to testify alongside Gore when his plane landed from England Thursday afternoon.
So, he urges bipartisanship, so long as the other side of the political deivide doesn’t get to hear the evidence contrary to Gore’s premise! Of course, this is typical of Gore. It’s not the first time he ran from a debate.
And where is this blatant hypocrisy reported in the media? Oh, it’s not! When you control the media, you frame the debate, and when you exclude half of the debate, you control the conclusions.
No wonder I’m depressed.
