Global Warming Follies

Al Gore the oracle

Posted in Follies by tjgavin on January 29, 2009

The lawmakers gazed in awe at the figure before them. The Goracle had seen the future, and he had come to tell them about it.

That’s how Dana Milbank opens his hilarious column in today’s Washinton Post about Al Gore’s appearance before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

What the Goracle saw in the future was not good: temperature changes that “would bring a screeching halt to human civilization and threaten the fabric of life everywhere on the Earth — and this is within this century, if we don’t change.”

The treatment he received from the committee members was one of awestruck reverence as exemplified  by this:

The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, John Kerry (D-Mass.), appealed to hear more of the Goracle’s premonitions. “Share with us, if you would, sort of the immediate vision that you see in this transformative process as we move to this new economy,” he beseeched.

To see the Goracle’s answer and to read the rest of this very funny and disturbing column go to the link. You’ll laugh ’til you cry. Literally.
