Al Gore: The World Domination Tour

Al Gore is at it again. Only this time, the choir he’s preaching to is more inclined to help make his maniacal dreams a reality.

We are here today to talk about how we as Americans and how the United States of America as part of the global community should address the dangerous and growing threat of the climate crisis. We have arrived at a moment of decision. Our home – Earth – is in grave danger. What is at risk of being destroyed is not the planet itself, of course, but the conditions that have made it hospitable for human beings.

That sure does sound bad, huh?

- the United States will regain its credibility and enter the Copenhagen treaty talks with a renewed authority to lead the world in shaping a fair and effective treaty.

A fair, effective and balanced treaty will put in place the global architecture that will place the world –- at long last and in the nick of time – on a path toward solving the climate crisis and securing the future of human civilization.

What Gore believes is necessary for success in Copenhagen:
• Strong targets and timetables from industrialized countries and differentiated but binding commitments from developing countries that put the entire world under a system with one commitment: to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other global warming pollutants that cause the climate crisis;

Sounds like the establishment of a Gore Global Central Planning Office.

• The inclusion of deforestation, which alone accounts for twenty percent of the emissions that cause global warming;

Sounds like illegal taking of private property.

• The addition of sinks including those from soils, principally from farmlands and grazing lands with appropriate methodologies and accounting. Farmers and ranchers in the U.S. and around the world need to know that they can be part of the solution;

And more illegal taking of private property.

• The assurance that developing countries will have access to mechanisms and resources that will help them adapt to the worst impacts of the climate crisis
and technologies to solve the problem; and,
By what means shall developing countries gain access to mechanisms and resources? By being entitled to take them from the people who have developed them? Sounds like removing motivation for the best and the brightest to develop new technologies.

• A strong compliance and verification regime.

Sounds a lot like the establishment of a global police force.

We don’t have to worry about global warming, folks. The blatant disregard for individual rights and establishment of a world-wide man-hating tyranny represented by these five items alone will make the planet uninhabitable for human beings.

I hope Congress has more sense than to take his half-baked plan for world domination seriously.

If the choice is global warming vs. global police force, I'll choose the former.
