South Park fans probably knew this day was inevitable. Yes, Al "ManBearPig" Gore has finally flipped out in public about his very favorite topic: global warming.
Apparently, the former U.S. vice president jetted over to Aspen, Colorado last week (burning tons of jet fuel along the way) to rant and rave about how skeptics are "polluting" the sacred debate on climate change.
"So what do they do? They pay pseudo-scientists to pretend to be scientists to put out the message: 'This climate thing, it's nonsense. Man-made CO2 doesn't trap heat. It's not - it may be volcanoes.' Bullshit! 'It may be sun spots.' Bullshit! 'It's not getting warmer.' Bullshit!" Gore yelled angrily.
"There are about 10 other memes that are out there, and when you go and talk to any audience about climate, you hear them washing back at you the same crap, over and over and over again. They have polluted this shit. There is no longer shared reality on an issue like climate, even though the very existence of our civilization is threatened."
Gore also claimed it was no longer acceptable in bipartisan company to use the "goddamned word 'climate.'"
"It's [simply] not acceptable. They have polluted this to the point where we cannot possibly come to an agreement on it because of this organized activity."
Say what!? Seriously Al, this stuff is just gold. Keep it coming and maybe you can do stand-up comedy on open-mic night. Then again, you probably should keep your day job.
Er, just what is Al Gore's day job, exactly? Anyone know?
