More Real Grassroots Folks Launch Real Grassroots AGW Movement

Or not. Al Gore gets all “hey, we’re going to launch this big advocacy movement through my Climate Project organization where I personally train 2,600 “volunteers” to parrot talking points to get people all scared and upset and purchase lots of carbon credits and come see my speeches which make me lots of money….. what? I was supposed to stop after “volunteers?” Oops.”

As Gore Lied points out

So, Big Green is about to “launch a major movement…to help build a formidable grassroots advocacy force”, and they have the nerve to call it “grassroots”. That sounds like nothing but Astroturf to me. And the words “formidable…advocacy force” are carefully chosen words of aggression that sound to me like Al Gore and The Climate Project are trying to incite an “angry mob”.

No, no, if it is liberal, it is always grassroots. If it is conservative, well, it is run by Big Business. /sarc off.

In other AGW news, seems there is a bit of a fight going on in the Calgary Herald. David Mayne Reid wrote a screed which attempted to explain why so many folks aren’t buying into the hysterical AGW movement. Many, many people have written rebuttals, including those who work at the paper. Ken Green writes a great one on Monday entitled “People know politics when they see it” which includes this tidbit

First, people instinctively and rightly doubt others who spin end-of-the world stories, demand a “wrenching transformation” of society, and who clearly have a radical social agenda independent of (and predating) their climate concerns. People know from experience that, as H. L. Mencken observed, “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” People have seen other eco-scares rise and get debunked over and over again.

Slap a double sided sign on most Climahysterics, give them a bell, put them on a street corner to preach their gloom and doom, and most people will think they are a wacko. Give them lots of money to predict gloom and doom, and they are Al Gore.
