Al Gore is going to be very busy pulling the puppet strings on his AGW bots all day:

Hurricane Irene hadn’t even made landfall in the United States before some people figured out what to blame it on.

“Irene’s got a middle name, and it’s Global Warming,” environmental activist Bill McKibben wrote Thursday night in The Daily Beast. He argued that this year’s hot Atlantic Ocean temperatures and active spree of hurricanes — coupled with droughts, floods and melting sea ice elsewhere on the globe — are “what climate change looks like in its early stages.”

Besides, “what’s a ‘tropical’ storm doing heading for the snow belt?” asked McKibben. He also said the storm represented bad timing for the Obama administration’s favorable environmental impact statement on TransCanada’s proposed Keystone XL pipeline, which environmentalists label a danger to the Earth’s climate.

These people really are self parodies.

What’s a tropical storm doing heading for the snow belt? I don’t know… what was one doing heading for the snow belt over 70 years ago?

New York City and Long Island have been hit by nine previous hurricanes from 1858 to 1991, according to NOAA records, including the disastrous 1938 storm known as the Long Island Express. And the deadliest hurricane in U.S. history struck 111 years ago — the 1900 storm that killed an estimated 8,000 people in Galveston, Texas.

In other global warming news, Al Gore wants you to give up your meaty diet — probably so there’s more left for him. Yeah, when you look at Jabba the Nut the first thing you think is “vegan.” Oh, and if you don’t agree with Al Gore, you’re also a racist… or something. That from the guy whose father voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964?

Will this fraud ever go away?

As for Hurricane Irene, I see Janet Napolitano on TV now, so if you’re in the path of the storm and are comforted by that fact, you don’t know nearly enough about J-Nap.

Update: The hurricane is also caused by Republicans — but that goes without saying, since Republicans cause global warming.

    Oh, please; Al Gore a vegan? I'm not sure if there's a word for what Senor Gore really is – someone who would like to eat the entire US economy.

    "Besides, “what’s a ‘tropical’ storm doing heading for the snow belt?” asked McKibben."

    Straw… It's what's for breakfast! Had this common, natural ( and otherwise perfectly BORING weather event ) taken place when it was actually -snowing- d!ckwad might actually have a case?

    42 years ago almost to the DAY, the remnants of Hurricane Camille swept thru rain-drenched concert goers at Woodstock on it's way into Canada. But by inserting the term "snow-belt" dw realizes it's enough to raise unenlightened eyebrows.

    With funding all but drying up, the tone of desperation in their rhetoric is the only thing that's heating up!

    Does Albore pay for his air-time ? I can`t imagine anything out of his mouth actually being news worthy !

    I`ll take being called "racist" over "blithering idiot" any day !

    Not long after Katrina, a very liberal friend of mine confided in me that he honestly believed that GWB and Paul Wolfowitz (sp?) secretly exploded nuclear devises over the Atlantic to create Katrina and then later used top secret military tech. to steer Katrina over New Orleans. His reason why ? To distract the public from the "real issues" !

    After hearing that and the lib friend who wanted to give me a pistol she had inherited because she was afraid of guns, didn`t want it in her house and that "Yes, she in fact was afraid the gun was looking for a chance to jump up and shoot someone !", the tweets in the "update link" come as no surprise ! However loony you may think libs are, believe me, you can multiply it many fold !

    And they say the biblical predictions of bizarre weather are outrageous! haha

  6. cdl on August 27th, 2011 5:46 pm

    "looking for a chance to jump up and shoot someone…"

    That's funny.

    I know someone that thinks like that too.

    "“Irene’s got a middle name, and it’s Global Warming,” environmental activist Bill McKibben wrote Thursday night in The Daily Beast."

    I love it. Its bizarre claims like that which continue to damage the enviornmental left, and McKibbon has not a drop of credibility anymore. He demonstrates that the enviornmentlists actually hope and prey that the next hurricane causes huge destruction, so they can point and claim its due to AGW. These people have their heads in the clouds, with folks like McKibbon getting facetime, who needs climate deniers.

    Don't know if it was intentional or not but you may well have stumbled ON to something!

    "Hope & Prey!"

    And you're right, they're no longer looking for downed power lines and gas station awnings fluffed off ( they need floating corpses ) to keep the ruse alive. The more the 'better'. Sick people my friend.

  9. SignPainterGuy on August 27th, 2011 10:02 pm

    It`s such a shame the truth must be so morbid, but I believe you`re right ! And nothing less is acceptable !

    At last count, 4 dead in NC and 1 in VA !

  10. Marshall_Will on August 28th, 2011 12:57 pm


    Sorry to hear that. Often what we hear is those in its path attempt to resume normal activities too quickly, thinking that danger has passed.

  11. Marshall_Will on August 28th, 2011 1:03 pm

    In waking up this morning, there was measureable disappointment from talking heads Irene had been downgraded to a Tropical Storm. Plenty of EGGS w/ a side of Hysteria. Not what Greenprey was hoping for?

    Saw Joan Jett last night in Albany, OR. Joan ROCKED IT, plain and simple. She'll be 53 in a couple of weeks and we could all take lessons from her energy level. If you find yourself wondering if there's anything LEFT in this country ( worth salvaging? ) go see Joan. She'll straighten you out!

  12. Doug on August 28th, 2011 2:04 pm

    Saw her from row 1 at the Palace (near Detroit) in 1988 when she opened for Robert Plant, and she was good then. Glad to hear she can still bring it!

  13. SignPainterGuy on August 28th, 2011 2:18 pm

    Saw an update just minutes after my last post that there were 2 confirmed killed and 1 presumed drowning in VA.

    Haven`t had the heart to look yet today…….

    I for one an GLAD the storm has been downgraded to TS. It`s currently only a few miles from Zilla. She was fine 2 hrs ago.

  14. Marshall_Will on August 28th, 2011 2:42 pm

    Sounds like a great twin bill! Joan never gets credit for being the purist she really is. I'd hate to be the asst. that showed up at her dressing room "With ____ added!" anything! She'd probably tell you where to stick it?

    '88 was a tough year for Rock & Roll and those two performers were probably viewed as "hold outs" or those passed their prime "just trying to cash in on their former noteriety" blah, blah. How many acts that -originated- in '88 are still touring? Sweden's "Ah-ha"..?

    I'm crediting Irene's lack of delivery w/ "Performance Anxiety" based on unrealistic expectations and re-naming it Ira. Just in case.

  15. Doug on August 28th, 2011 3:55 pm

    Ever see the movie The Runaways?

    I haven't yet but might.

  16. NOBO2012 on August 28th, 2011 4:28 pm

    you republicans better watch out now: Obama has appointed Ninja Storm Hurricane Command Megazord to the post of Hurricane Czar. I wonder if this is the start of his civilian force, just as powerful, just an well funded as the military.

  17. Marshall_Will on August 28th, 2011 7:51 pm


    I have. Not one for when the kids are home, but well worth seeing. Joan um… kinda' 'mentioned' it last night and it was pretty clear she considers it "historically accurate".

    At times, I've kind of felt for her. Never really had a childhood, absentee 'parents' and thrust kicking and screaming directly into a rock n' roll 'version' of adulthood. As parents we always told our girls, "Be KIDS for as long as you can!"

    But a big part of what makes Joan so lovable is ( unlike a certain pResident we all know ) she gladly accepts FULL responsibility for her actions, blames no one, shuns pity, paid her own way in life and still delivers the goods. And DOES she ever!

  18. SignPainterGuy on August 28th, 2011 7:53 pm

    A rarity ! Good for her !
