As former Vice-President Al Gore cancels at least one event at Copenhagen and conservative Hollywood calls for the Oscar Academy to recind his Oscar, his carbon credit corporation scam could wane...but probably not.
Three thousand ticket holders planned to listen to the hot air proclaimer. Too bad, so sad. And speaking of Hot Air, they have some great commentary on what this cancellation likely means.
The Los Angeles Times says two members of the Oscar Academy has called for the Academy to take back Gore's Oscar for his movie An Inconvenient Truth.
Roger L. Simon and Lionel Chetwynd, both Academy members, are among a small, meandering pack of known political conservatives still believed to be on the loose in the liberal bastion of movie-making.
In 2007, the Academy sanctified Gore's cinematic message of global warming with its famous statue, enriched his earnings by $100,000 per 85-minute appearance and helped elevate the Tennessean's profile to win the Nobel Peace Prize despite losing the election battle of 2000 to a Texan and living in a large house with lots of energy-driven appliances.
Chetwynd and Simon were prompted to make their hopeless demand this week by the ...
... leak two weeks ago of a blizzard of British academic e-mails purporting to show that scientists at the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit systematically falsified data to document the appearance of global warming in recent years.Now listen to this...this also from the LA Times - a sweet dig at Obama:
The startling leak [ClimateGate] comes at an inconvenient time, just before next week's United Nations climate change meeting, which will cause an immense carbon footprint with thousands of people flying up or over to Denmark to talk about saving the environment.Keep up with ClimateGate at ClimateDepot.
These airplanes will include Air Force One with its primary passenger, President Obama, who's returning to the Copenhagen scene where he didn't help win the 2016 Summer Olympics for Chicago, which could do with a little global warming at this time of year.
