Bob Lutz: Gore-ing the Sacred Environmental Ox

My column tomorrow is going to be about Al Gore’s ongoing hoax that makes the Nigerian email scam look like a kid stealing a pack of gum.

Every time I write about the trickery that is the big-business of “man made climate change,” I get angry email from enviro-sheep, persecuting me to the point that I feel like Galileo Galilei after claiming that the Earth was round.

Bob Lutz, GM’s Vice Chairman, must get the same thing, but on a much grander scale. The cool thing about Lutz is that he doesn’t fall into lock-step like many other auto execs, and it pisses off those who stand to make a fortune from the Gore lie.

And he’s standing his ground:

General Motors Corp Vice Chairman Bob Lutz has defended remarks he made dismissing global warming as a “total crock of shit,” saying his views had no bearing on GM’s commitment to build environmentally friendly vehicles.
As part of a campaign against higher fuel economy standards, Lutz wrote in a 2006 blog posting that forcing automakers to sell smaller cars would be “like trying to address the obesity problem in this country by forcing clothing manufacturers to sell smaller, tighter sizes.”

It is our responsibility to keep our environment as clean as possible, but the Gorebots present us with only two choices: Do what Al Gore says, or you’re destroying the environment.

I think Al Gore is full of more BS than, well, a constipated bull. I can believe this while still keeping my environment clean. Gore wants you to think that disbelief in his “man made climate change” claims and maintaining the cleanest environment possible without destroying the economy are mutually exclusive ideas.

Gore’s operating a successful sham, and people like Lutz are calling him out and I hope he keeps doing so.
