Has Al Gore Become a Raving Lunatic?

March 9, 1999, Vice President Al Gore was being interviewed by Wolf Blitzer on CNN’s Late Edition program.  At the time, Gore was seeking the Democratic nomination for President and his main opponent at the time was former NBA star and US Senator Bill Bradley.  Blitzer asked Gore.

“Why should Democrats, looking at the Democratic nomination process, support you instead of Bill Bradley.”

Gore responsed,

“…During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our country’s economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system.”

Most experts have rallied to Gore’s defense and claimed that he did not actually mean that he created the internet but that he had an impact on the development of the internet.  I’ve listened to Gore and read some of his environmental writings and I’m convinced that his internet creation statement may have been one of the early signs of a delusional man.

In 1992, Gore published his environmental book, Earth in the Balance in which he laid the groundwork claims for his war on global warming and other so-called environmental issues.  One of the claims made in his book on page 264 is,

“It cannot be accidental, one is tempted to conclude, that the percentage of salt in our bloodstreams is roughly the same as the percentage of salt in the oceans of the world.  The long and intricate process by which evolution helped to shape the complex interrelationship of all living and nonliving things may be explicable in purely scientific terms, but the simple fact of the living world and our place on it evokes awe, wonder, a sense of mystery–a spiritual response when one reflects on its deeper meaning.”

Unless you’ve just eaten a whole bag of salted peanuts and received a super saline IV, there is no way our blood has the same salt content of the oceans.  Think about, if you’ve ever cut or nicked your finger, one of the first reactions is to put it in your mouth as if that’s the magic clean it cure.  If you’ve done this, do you remember what your blood tasted like?  Now, if you’ve ever been to the ocean and accidentally or purposely tasted the water, you will recall that it is much saltier than your blood.

When Al Gore represented the United States at the first Earth Summit meeting in Rio de Janeiro, he whole heartedly agreed with all of the climate scares issued at the conference.  He also signed all of the accords for the US that were presented at the summit including giving the UN complete ownership and jurisdiction of land in the US and the rest of the world.  He also signed accords that would forcibly distribute much of America’s wealth and technology to third world countries.  Fortunately, not enough other nations signed on to those particular accords and they were never ratified and put into place.

Ever since leaving politics, Gore has taken up the environmental crusade, but the more he crusades, the more irrational and fringed he appears.  For instance, in August of 2011, Gore gave what was supposed to be an environmental speech to an audience at the Aspen Institute in Colorado.  When his topic turned to the opponents of global warming, Gore went off on one of his more frequent lunatic rantings when he accused anti-global warming interests groups of paying,

“…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 may be volcanoes.’

“Bullsh–!”

‘It may be sun spots.’

“Bullsh–!”

‘It’s not getting warmer.’

“Bullsh–!”

“…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 the sh–. There’s no longer a shared reality on an issue like climate even though the very existence of our civilization is threatened. People have no idea!”

“It’s no longer acceptable in mixed company, meaning bipartisan company, to use the G– damn word ‘climate!’”

Journalist and weather expert Brian Sussman has listened to that Gore speech more than once and makes the following observations,

“It was a gorebasm in which Al totally lost it.”

“Listening to audiotape of the speech makes it abundantly evident even the Aspen audience was uncomfortable witnessing the ravings of a madman.”

Sussman goes on to extend his condolences to Tipper Gore by saying she deserves better than this buffoon and hopes that she received a lot of ‘green’ (money) in the divorce.

I personally feel that Al Gore exhibits all of the characteristics of a mentally deranged person that has fixated on the environment.  He has little scientific credibility and is fast losing any political credibility he once had.  The frightening thing is to realize just how close he was to becoming President of the United States.  If he had, we would be living under the United Nations flag and by UN laws instead of the US Constitution.  Perhaps for the good of the nation and for his own good, Gore should be hospitalized and placed on some kind of anti-psychotic drug.  Maybe then he will come to grasp reality and the difference between cyclic weather patterns and the global warming end of the world.
