And I looked, and behold, a pale horse, & his name that sate on him was Death, and hell followed with him: and power was giuen vnto them, ouer the fourth part of the earth to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beastes of the earth.

Repent!

Repent!

Al Gore is losing it. The Dust Bowl Returneth.

Gore filled a Westin Crown Center ballroom with a 90-minute presentation, using photos and videos to illustrate a litany of floods, wildfires, torrential rains, droughts, dust storms, rising sea levels and increasing world temperatures.

To those attending the Folk Alliance International conference, he noted examples of flooding in locations both remote and closer to home, such as in Manitou Springs, Colo., where high water barreled down mountain highways last year, carrying cars along with it.

“They had never seen anything like this in Manitou Springs,” Gore said.

He cited the possibility of how flooding in Pakistan could destabilize that country, a nuclear power, and the possible effect that continuing drought in California might have on the world’s food supply.

“Think about that,” he said. “The Dust Bowl is coming back, quickly, unless we act.”

Gore presented animation from his 2006 film depicting water pushing into the streets of lower Manhattan — much mocked at the time, Gore said — followed by images of water filling New York City subway tunnels during Hurricane Sandy in October 2012.

Gore conceded the possible fatigue some may have with his warnings, as well as the possible sense of powerlessness as to what any one individual can do to affect what appear to be vast, unchangeable trends.

He’s made his millions from this scam; why won’t he just STFU?

(Wanna bet he jetted into Kansas City for this paid speech, rather than use his bicycle?)

UPDATE: Apocalypse postponed, soaking rains return to California – I blame Bush. And the fact that LA was, and remains, desert.

    “And I looked, and behold, a pale horse, & his name that sate on him was Death . . . ” Been watching “Pale Rider” again — one of my favorite movies.

    Al Gore reminds me of one of those guys in the movies who knows that an eclipse is coming, and uses that foretelling to control the natives. The climate on the planet is always changing, just as it always has — change is constant — the iceman of the Alps, being one of many examples. When he walked the mountains 5000 years ago the planet was much warmer than when he was found in 1991.

    But even though the light has flickered and sputtered with 16 years of global cooling, almost extinguishing the flame of Al’s magik mojo stick, Gaia torch; true believers refuse to relinquish their boogie man and beg to be allowed to make sacrifice. Please take our sovereignty, and impose a global tax. Let us makes tithes and offerings to the high priestess of Banksterdom to create a new derivatives market and bring us all to glorious ruin, and a world where only those who broke it are anointed as the only ones who can fix it.

    What about gnashing of teeth? I always liked the way that sounds.

    Also, turn your spell checker on.

    This is just the silver spoon version of becoming a greeter at Walmart in later years. Gives one something to do, and pays the light bill.

    Nope, it was Papa Gore who made the Millions as Armand Hammer’s personal U.S. Senator.

  5. 30 years ago Sierra Club blocked storm diversion plan for Manitou Springs & Boulder….implemented ones worked last September.

    • That’s standard operating procedure for these people. They prevent harvesting of dead trees out there despite warnings that they’re creating conditions for massive fires and, when the fires do come a decade later they don’t admit they were wrong, they find something to blame it on. These days, that’s global warming.
