The Aspen Institute held a media forum and Al Gore showed up to speak. The Goracle put on one of his patented “I’m so angry I could spit” performances and even threw in a few special words to show just how angry he is.
The Colorado Independent was there to record them for posterity:
“They pay pseudo-scientists to pretend to be scientists to put out the message: ‘This climate thing, it’s nonsense. Man-made CO2 doesn’t trap heat. It may be volcanoes.’ Bullshit! ‘It may be sun spots.’ Bullshit! ‘It’s not getting warmer.’ Bullshit!” Gore exclaimed.
And he wasn’t done. No, he was just getting warmed up about global warming deniers:
“When you go and talk to any audience about climate, you hear them washing back at you the same crap over and over and over again,” he continued. “There’s no longer a shared reality on an issue like climate even though the very existence of our civilization is threatened. People have no idea! … It’s no longer acceptable in mixed company, meaning bipartisan company, to use the goddamn word climate. It is not acceptable. They have polluted it to the point where we cannot possibly come to an agreement on it.”
What caused Al to get so het up? No one knows for sure, but we can imagine the following scene:
Laurie David is curled up next to the Goracle in bed in their luxurious suite after the speech. Little beads of sweat are forming on her brow. She gives out an involuntary gasp and says, “Oh, Albert. I know I’m just contributing to global warming and that’s against everything we believe in, but it makes me sooooo hot when you talk all manly-like during your speeches.”
And Al smiles and thinks to himself, “Imagine that. I’m doing Larry David’s wife and saving the planet simultaneously. I am a global warming stud.”
