Skip to comments.US, Saudi, Russia 'insulted' key global warming report: Al Gore

Former US vice president and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Al Gore on Tuesday slammed the world's top oil producers -- his own country, Saudi Arabia and Russia -- for "insulting" a key and alarming report on climate change.
A bloc of 44 small island nations -- many facing an existential threat from storm surges engorged by rising seas -- had called on the UN climate body to "welcome" a UN report on limiting global warming.
But the United States, Russia and Saudi Arabia blocked the critical word change in the negotiating text of the COP24 summit in Poland.
The text was watered down to say that it takes "note" of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) Special Report on Global Warming.
The report was "just insulted really by the governments of the United States and Saudi Arabia and Russia," said Gore, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 along with the IPCC for their efforts to build and disseminate knowledge about manmade climate change.
"It was for the three largest producers of petroleum on the planet, to choose a word, 'inconvenient' to welcome the scientific facts," Gore said, alluding to his documentaries "An Inconvenient Truth" and "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power".

No soap, dumbass.

Remember when he got caught with suitcases full of Chinese bribe money for the Democrats?
Good old Bag Boy.
NOTHING could be better evidence of how little these prizes mean these days than to have associated them with this moron.
Do pieces of paper have “feelings”? How do you insult a report? If I get mad at a book that I’m reading and I get mad at what’s inside and i yell at it, am I insulting it? How do you insult an inanimate object?
Al needs his chakras adjusted.
Good. Now f OFF Manbearpig
It’s cold here in Florida.
It’s better to insult some paper than the intelligence of Americans.
Can humans change the climate, yes, a tiny bit.
Can humans change the climate significantly, nope.
Let me know when Gore helps develop a Palm Tree Village in suburban Detroit.

Funny seeing Al having to go stag to Bush’s funeral.
