Gore learned to use GW for political clout when he was in the government, now that he's a private citizen he's turned it into quite a dynasty.


    He got all of you talking about the issue. Many things are changing as a result. It has led to opportunities for us in the trade as home owners try to do their part and be more energy efficient. None of us are refusing to install what the customer wants, are we.

    1) What qualifications does he really have?

    Pretty impressive huh? I bet he has done more than most of us on this site. Instead of cutting him down most of us should be thanking him.

    The answers won't look good.

    Seems he is trying to do something about his portion of waste. What are we doing?

    Gore is full of ****. The reason folks are demanding efficient furnaces and A/Cs is the cost of energy. If Gore was really concerned about the environment instead of promoting himself he would fly commercial air instead of in private energy wasteful jets.

    He wants us to become a third world country based on his junk science. I say lock Gore up in a sanitarium and keep the US on top. We don't need goofs like him running around trying to destroy our countries' economy.

    "I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution."

    How does a degree in government qualify him to lecture us on a scientific issue? Why would you believe him over respected scientists that say he's wrong?

    Yeah, after e-mails about how much energy he wastes circled the globe. Better late than never I suppose.

    That came from Wiki, huh? Ya know, anybody and his parakeet can add stuff to that. It means very little when you get right down to it. And I have questions about his military service. Here's why.

    He has 7 months left on his enlistment and he gets orders to Viet Nam? Hmm. Standard orders were 13 months. A guy with 7 months was VERY UNlikely to get orders to SEA...or any other permanent duty station. The cost of the move outweighed the worth of the move. It is also unlikely he went on TDY orders because those were, by regulation, limited to 89 days. So just that little bit of doubt casts a pretty big shadow over the veracity of the entire piece.

    But try again. Maybe there's something out there with credibility.

    carbon credit crap goes like this. You figure your carbon footprint and from that determine how much carbon credit you need. You get carbon credit by "donating" cash to a carbon credit company...one that supposedly uses the monmey to further the cause of environmentalist agenda and promote "green" issues.

    Well, guess who owns and operates the first and largest carbon credit company.















    Yup. If ya have a smidgeon or more of intelligence, you can guess his name is Albert A. Gore, the not so distinguished gentleman from DC. Oh, was that TN?

    But then, Algore has been known to blatantly lie before. While running for the Oval Office, he ranted on about how his father fought for civil rights. (I wonder what country he was in when he was doing this.) Ya see, Al Gore, Sr., fought hard against every piece of civil rights legislation that came down the pike.

    I trust Algore almost as far as I can pee up a rope.
