Skip to comments.UCI asks: Why do people hate Al Gore?
Posted on 03/01/2009 9:29:06 PM PST by melt
Ive been asked to moderate a private seminar at UC Irvine next month that has a very provocative title: The Climate Change Dilemma and Why People Hate Al Gore. The seminar is being sponsored by Prosperitas, a small new group of wealthy peers which is partnering with with UCIs Merage School of Business to explore hot topics.
Virtually every time I write about the weather and every time I write about climate change or global warming I get lots of comments from readers, many which express a disgust or hatred of Gore, who shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to publicize the potential impact of Earths changing climate.
Mary Patrick, Prosperitas associate director and organizer of the seminar, originally considered calling the discussion, simply, Why does everyone hate Al Gore? But the title was tweaked because Gore actually won the popular vote in the 2000 presidential election and he is admired by many for his Oscar-winning documentary, An Inconvenient Truth.
But Patrick is right in saying politics has had a polarizing effect on climate change debate, distracting people from focusing on what scientists are actually saying. The lecture panel (read line-up) will take up that issue, and wed like to hear your thoughts about this. Im going to use reader comments to craft some of the questions.
Specifically, I want you to tell me what impact you think Gore has had on the climate change debate. (Use the Comment feature below). I encourage you to be candid, but dont simply offer up insults like, Gore is an idiot.

Leave Al Gore alone...!
Just a guess.
Let me count the ways...
Heavens to mergatroid. Is there enough bandwidth?
You want we should do this alphabetically?
He’s full of himself.
hmmmm... a self-righteous, hypocritical phony that wants to destroy business and raise your taxes....what’s not love?
Because he thinks he’s a genius because his paid sycophants tell him so? The Emperor Algore has NEVER had any clothes.
How could anyone hate a pompous dunce?......
I avoid stepping in it when walking through the woods.
his book “an inconvenient truth” has no scientific evidence.
also, gore has no scientific credentials.
Maybe because he’s a lying sack of greenhouse gas.
Because....... he is a notorious lying, hystrionic, fear-mongering hypocrite charlatan?
Yeah, but Gore is an idiot.
He is a fake, a fraud, a phony AND a hypocrite.
I just want to know if anybody has seen any of these Mangrove trees they plant to offset emissions? Seems we should be covered up with mangroves by now.
How can you tell someone to decrease their carbon footprint from a what? 6000 square foot house and a Gulfstream business jet?
He is pushing junk science.
You can’t extrapolate a point and that is what the chicken little clan is doing.
There are a multitude of reputable refutations of global warming...oops, I’m wrong, that was yesterday...climate change.
I mean, who could hate someone so hip that he shows up as a hologram?!? Really?
He’s operating from the top of the multi billion dollar greenhouse gas pyramid, that’s why he pushes it. Sick bastard.
The liberals still luv him - what odd - what they can't understand is how our distaste for the man broke through their "aren't we sooooooo cool & everyone luvs us" wall.
read the comments at the link... some are very good, a couple are crack pots
I pity him for his constant attempt to convince people about Global Warming..
While he works for a foundation that will make him Millions and possibly Billions as people purchase “carbon credits” to offset something that is not in the purview of any government to tax. He is attempting to steal from everyone to line his pockets...
I am Sooooo Glad that the American People did not elect that man to office.
