"This is the most dangerous crisis we've ever faced," Gore said of climate change. He spoke over a chorus of boos from protesters, who were monitored by at least a dozen uniformed city police officers.
Many of the protesters were with the groups Collegians for a Constructive Tomorrow and South Florida Tea Party, the latter of which feels that Gore's views will eventually lead to increased taxes and flawed business legislation.
The protesters carried drums, bullhorns and posters. One read "Practice what you preach," accusing Gore of not living a green lifestyle. Another poster read "The masses follow the asses," depicting the protesters' opinion that Gore's message is not backed by scientific evidence.
Gore, meanwhile, in his presentation laid out data that he said was compiled by the world's leading scientists and supports the theory of global warming. The speech carried much of the same content and rhythm as Gore's Oscar-winning 2006 documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, which turned him into a leading international voice on the issue of climate change.
Haha! Way to Speak Truth To Power, folks!
Oh, and I love how the rest of the world seems to have figured out that maybe, just maybe, we should hold off on destroying the world economy.
World leaders meeting in Singapore have decided to punt on reaching any firm agreement at next month’s global warming conference in Copenhagen.
The decision represents a huge setback to the Obama administration’s goal of passing a cap and trade bill this year, which conversely is great news for virtually every company in America that has been worried about the higher cost of doing business that would come from the enactment of such legislation.
