As ice and snowstorms ravaged the plains and eastern states, Al Gore was lauded by planet-traipsing jet-set fossil fuel hogging glitterati, winning an Oscar for his film “An Inconvenient Truth” in an Academy Awards program that was on pace to end next Thursday.
As his name was announced, Gore stood and soaked in the adulation, clutching the shiny little man proudly. But then Martin Scorsese made Gore put him down, and Al then went up on stage to accept his Oscar.
Al Gore then delivered his acceptance speech to a hall full of adoring celebs who make a fortune in an industry that is the second-largest air polluter in the state of California.
“My fellow Americans,” Gore said Sunday. “People all over the world, we need to solve the climate crisis. It’s not a political issue, it’s a moral issue. We have everything we need to get started with the possible will to act. That’s a renewable resource. Let’s renew it.”
Earlier in the evening, Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio took the stage to unveil a series of efforts the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences took to make this year’s awards more environmentally friendly.
The best way to make these awards shows environmentally friendly would be to cancel them. Did you see all the stretch limos arriving? I’m assuming those things aren’t kumquat powered.
Global warming is a moral issue? Well so is abortion, but somehow that’s dusted into the “choice” bin by Gore and his liberal friends who have attained their status by giving each other homemade climatology degrees. Why can’t global warming be a “choice” too? With liberals, “moral” issues are confined to instances which will allow them access to your wallet or some other form of control over your life, but otherwise life has more gray areas than the elephant pen at the San Diego Zoo.
Let me get this straight. Al Gore expects us to consider the murder of the unborn an unchallengable “choice” to which we should be desensitized, but at the same time we’re supposed to fall into a moral freakout because the friggin’ temperature went up 1.6 degrees?
Oh well, it was Al’s big night, so let’s let him soak it in. After all, he’s had his share of bad nights too — mostly while knee-deep in ballot boxes in the basement of the Broward County Courthouse.
This morning, as we fire up our SUV’s, let’s not consider it contributing to global warming as much as helping Al make a sequel. He deserves another good night.
