Gore's "Momentous Announcement" Was That Carbon-Neutral Is A Fraud

2 comments
Funny thing is he didn't realize he said it.

Some speculated he would announce his candidacy, but that would have made no sense. To announce in Canada would have destroyed the campaign before it started.

Gore's announcement was that Canada's climate plan is a fraud. A lot like carbon-credits are a fraud I suppose.

There are some hilarious gems in what Gore had to say.

AP:

He also criticized the plan for allowing industries to pollute more if they use emissions-cutting technologies while increasing production.

"In my opinion, it is a complete and total fraud," Gore said Saturday. "It is designed to mislead the Canadian people."

This is the money shot of the piece. Gore is actually saying that not reducing emissions while using green technology is a fraud. Let me translate that for you folks. Gore is saying that the Canadian plan to make industry carbon-neutral is a scam. Just like I said earlier ... like carbon-credits. It's ok for Gore to not reduce emissions because he buys offsets, but it is not ok for businesses to do the same. Pure hypocrisy!

The Canadian plan is designed for businesses to reduce emissions with their current production by using eco-tech. It also allows businesses to increase production using eco-tech to equal their current emissions output. The idea is that businesses can't increase their emissions to more than their current output ... i.e. carbon-neutral.

The Canadians fired back.

Canadian Environment Minister John Baird rejected Gore's criticisms.

"The fact is our plan is vastly tougher than any measures introduced by the administration of which the former vice president was a member," Baird said in a statement.

Pwned! Not only is it tougher than Clinton's policies, but Bush has had far more success in reducing emissions than Clinton ever did. Clinton would propose unreasonable cuts in emissions that would never pass because they were unrealistic. Clinton was never effective at any real environmental change. Bush has proposed emissions reductions that weren't unrealistic, and were implemented.

Excellent! Also... The Sun reports that European governments have asked the EU to examine, "the livestock question in direct connection with global warming... The official EU declaration demands changes to animals’ diets, to capture gas emissions and recycle manure."

So... why not Cowbung Offsets?

LOL ... I was talking about that the other day. Nothing says Earth friendly like changing the natural diet of an animal, and then shoving a fist-sized alka-seltzer up their but to convert the methane.
