I see various warmers doing tricks like hiding the decline, making warm temperatures disappear, adding to sea levels and even tricks like adding to temperatures, all in an effort to bolster their claims that anthropogenic CO2 is causing the Earth to warm. I don’t remember seeing the disappearing video trick, until now that is.
It seems about everyone and his brother had this alleged video from YouTube, posted by “BrianMerchant” up earlier today. It allegedly had Al Gore allegedly telling people at the 8th annual Games for Change Festival allegedly about something allegedly to the effect that population control will help save us from that nasty
global warming no climate change no climate disruption or whatever the latest term is.
I can’t say anything but allegedly because for some strange reason I can’t find the video, even though it was allegedly posted on at least several websites I found this evening, including YouTube. If you go to YouTube you get what’s in the below screenshot – “This Video Has Been Removed by the User.”
The second video is still up as of this posting , but who knows how long it will remain? I have it below, linked to YouTube, but for some “funny” reason I can’t seem to download it for posterity (AKA: So it won’t mysteriously disappear, too). Al doesn’t seem to be saying anything about population control in it. How long it will remain I don’t know. If you get a message that it’s gone “poof” please don’t blame me.
While the two screenshot programs I use will copy pages I can’t get them to copy the YouTube before and after at any of the websites I found it on. All I get is blank where the video should be. You can go here to LA Times Blogs or here to Breitbart TV and try it for yourself to see. You’ll see Al there with a woman (like above), but when you click to start the video you get the same message with no video. How long it will be up at these two sites I don’t know either, so don’t blame me if you go and there’s nothing there. We do have quotes about this from websites as follows……..
The LA Times quotes Al as allegedly saying……
Besides improving technology to reduce fossil fuel emissions, he is advocating “educating and empowering girls and women.”
“That’s the most powerful leveraging factor,” Gore said in a speech Monday in New York. “When that happens, then the population begins to stabilize and societies begin to make better choices.”
Since I wasn’t there and I can’t watch the video I’ll have to take their word for it. Online Journal quote Al as allegedly saying this…..
The former vice president also took to the stage in New York Monday to give a speech about population control, saying he advocates “educating and empowering girls and women,” the Los Angeles Times reports.
“That’s the most powerful leveraging factor,” Gore said. “When that happens, then the population begins to stabilize and societies begin to make better choices.”
He went on to state that having access to “fertility management” would help stabilize the population.
Pretty much the same alleged quotes from two different sources. To reiterate, I wasn’t there, nor can I see the mysteriously removed video. so who really knows what Al said?
Here’s more alleged quotes from the Daily Caller here……….
“One of the things we could do about it is to change the technologies, to put out less of this pollution, to stabilize the population, and one of the principle ways of doing that is to empower and educate girls and women,” Gore said. “You have to have ubiquitous availability of fertility management so women can choose how many children have, the spacing of the children.
“You have to lift child survival rates so that parents feel comfortable having small families and most important — you have to educate girls and empower women,” he said. “And that’s the most powerful leveraging factor, and when that happens, then the population begins to stabilize and societies begin to make better choices and more balanced choices.”
All I can say is it is certainly a mystery as to where this video went to and why it disappeared. Couldn’t be that Google, who owns YouTube had anything to do with it could it? According to Wikipedia here is a tidbit about Gore and Google……
He is a founder and current chair of the Alliance for Climate Protection, the co-founder and chair of Generation Investment Management, the co-founder and chair of Current TV, a member of the Board of Directors of Apple Inc., and a senior adviser to Google
Oh my? Senior adviser to Google? Hmmmmmmm……..
Anyway, I am really curious about why the video has disappeared. This may end up being like UFO’s only called UVO’s (Unidentified Video Objects) that everyone “knows” exist, but can never prove with a clear, clean video.
I do have the following questions for Brian Merchant:
- Did Google remove it? If so did they do it arbitrarily? Or, did they ask nicely?
- Did Gore request it removed?
- Since Brian Merchant appears to have been at this conference (I assume he took the video) is he an Al Gore fan and felt guilty about it and merely removed it and there’s no conspiracy?
- Was Brian Merchant threatened by someone’s attorney? I ask because evidently no video cameras were allowed at the conference. If that’s the case I do find it kind of unusual that he would have been told to remove the first one and not the second one and that on his YouTube page there’s another video (who knows how long either of them may be up?)
I will keep trying to find the mysterious disappearing video, but I won’t hold my breath that it will ever surface unless someone was able to save it before it disappeared from YouTube, or if Brian Merchant puts it back up. If I find it I’ll post it up. Perhaps I should get OJ Simpson to help me find the real video?
More CO2 Insanity? Seems like it to me, but without the actual video or sworn statements from witnesses about what Al Gore actually said at the conference, I only have my imagination, as do you.
I also have an alternate theory.
It could be this was removed so as to not let the ‘cat out of the bag’ about Al’s latest
scam scheme. We all know that carbon trading is having some more than major problems getting off the ground as evidenced by Al’s previous scam scheme at the Chicago Climate Exchange that was shut down due to lack of business.
However, if Big Al’s touting population control this could possibly – maybe – allegedly, signify one of the following three things:
- Al might have bought a lot of stock in Trojan Rubbers.
- Al might be heavily investing in Planned Parenthood and possibly planning on franchising drive-through abortion clinics.
- He may have knocked up a masseuse and is going way over the top trying to convince her to terminate the fetus.
It’s also interesting we seem to have some hypocrisy here. Can someone tell me why that we’re all supposed to have no more than two children to maintain zero population growth and why Al had four kids? I mean really Al, can’t you practice what you preach? (Don’t even get me started on his carbon footprint).
If this is all true, will Al give this the follow-through and have all his kids sterilized so they won’t reproduce and create that nasty CO2 that will cause the planet to overheat any day now? If not, will he at least give them all a lifetime supply of condoms?
Oh….and about those plastic water bottles…..shame…shame.
I’ll leave it to you do decide.
