In an amazing turn of events Al Gore has recanted Global Warming! After selling all his stock in the Carrier Air Conditioning Company and buying heating oil futures, Al was noted to be telling his cohorts that global cooling was coming fast and that he was buying property in the Amazon Jungle where it’s nice and warm. April Fools!

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.
While I am not a big conspiracy person, I don’t see why I can’t wonder just what is going on with all of this and who or what is behind these problems?
Is it a conspiracy? Stupidity? Vanity? Someone upstairs quashing things? Inter-agency arguing? All of the aforementioned? Sheer coincidence? I can’t really say with any certainty one way or the other, but with all the goings on, I do feel perfectly justified in asking questions, as do others.
What are they hiding, if anything? Are the warmers afraid these new satellites will disprove all their global warming theories? Are the denialists afraid the satellites will prove that the warmers are correct and we do indeed have global warming? Is the government hiding something from us? I ask that last one because the article does mention that the USAF is interested on how solar rays affect their equipment. What equipment? HAARP? Something else we don’t know about?
Too over the top? Well maybe yes, maybe no. It may be something no one will ever know, or not find out for a hundred years. JFK was assassinated in 1963 and no one’s even seen what the whole deal was with that and we may never be privy to that information.
For those who are interested in this, Popsci has a very enlightening article today titled “Who Killed the Deep Space Climate Observatory, which was originally proposed by Al Gore in 1998 and then killed right after George W. Bush was elected.
In what sounds like the end to the Indiana Jones Movie, Raiders of the Lost Ark…….
Nearly a decade ago, NASA built an Earth-monitoring satellite that could have observed global warming in action. Then the agency stashed it in a warehouse in Maryland, where it remains to this day.
It’s an excellent article that will open your eyes to some of the CO2 Insanity that goes on behind the scenes at NASA, NOAA and the White House. I, for one, would like to know why we have a very expensive piece of equipment ($100 million of your tax dollars) sitting in a warehouse for almost a decade that will shed some more light upon the global warming theory, regardless the outcome.

Al is really good at making post-event predictions. You can bet if they had a heat-wave last week instead of snowmageddon he would have said that was caused by global warming, too!
Here we have a project with a power plant looking for someone to buy the CO2 they capture and evidently we have no takers thus far.
Basin Electric Power Cooperative is searching for customers to buy the carbon dioxide it plans to retain in an experiment to reduce emissions of the gas from its Antelope Valley power plant, a company official said.
One crucial element is whether Basin can find customers for the carbon dioxide that would be captured from one of Antelope Valley’s two 450-megawatt generating units, he said
Great Plains processes lignite coal to make synthetic natural gas and retains much of the carbon dioxide in the process.
Man I would have thought Al Gore would have been first in line to buy all this nasty CO2 up so he could stick it someplace. Perhaps he’s blowing all his money on masseuses, divorces and his new bachelor pad in upscale Montecito, California. Talk about more CO2 Insanity.

If Al “Sex Poodle” Gore had really been neutered, millions of legitimate masseuses would breathe easy.
Al’s basically had is cojones removed as far as global warming is concerned, at least for this year.
Per Green Hell Blog…..
Speaking about the likelihood of climate bill being passed by Congress in 2010, Al Gore told a conference call of supporters tonight that, “this battle has not been successful and is pretty much over for this year.” Gore bitterly denounced the Senate and federal government stating several times, “The U.S. Senate has failed us” and “The federal government has failed us.” Gore even seemed to blame President Obama by emphasizing that “the government as a whole has failed us… although the House did its job. [emphasis added]”
Poor Al, visions of carbon trading bucks were dancing in his head but alas, Santa didn’t show up this year for him and his buddies.
I guess with no cojones, his “dangling chad” won’t be of much use. I would offer the suggestion that any masseuses out there be careful or they may find a blubber like “sex poodle” after them. There’s always Viagra, which can create global warming in Al’s pants.

Al was accused of trying to get fresh with her way back in 2006. Perhaps that global warming in his pants just got too hot?
There’s other accusations floating around, we’ll have to wait and see what goes on with those.
Until then, Al, I’d suggest that next time you call a masseuse you might consider applying an ice pack to your crotch to cool that global warming off before she arrives.
