Gore A Fraud. Who Knew?

"Oh what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practise to deceive!" ~ Sir Walter Scott

From the article linked to in my previous post entitled "Irony":

"Al Gore’s office admitted yesterday that a percentage he quoted on polar ice melting in a speech was not actually supported by science."

What should we do with (or, more to the point, to) AlGore?

Other con-men (such as Bernie Madoff) have been convicted to life imprisonment for perpetrating fraud on a much smaller scale than Gore's.

Can the punishment even begin to fit the crime in this case?

THE WORST YOU CAN DO IS IGNORE HIM, MAKE HIM IRRELEVANT...

It would be great to see him exposed for the fraud he is and then to incarcerate him like any other con-artist who profitted off his angle. All we need is more definitive stuff to throw back in his face. It has to be overwhelming.

One-by-one, Algore's lies and misrepresentaitons are being exposed. I only hope we catch on in time.

As to what to do with (to) him: give him a little more rope and pray that he hangs himself.

(For you libs, that is NOT a call for him to commit suicide. It is a long recognized expression that means he will expose his own lies and ineptitudes for himself, without our help).

COMMITING SUICIDE WOULD BE THE HONORABLE THING TO DO...

To be honest - this whole thing with ClimateGate and Copenhagen etc...I am actually stunned because I never thought the "fraud" would be lifted in my lifetime...or this easily.

It actually gives me hope and reminds I have to teach my 4 yo son...aside from the 10 Commandments...is how to think critically for himself. Where have all the thinkers...leaders...gone?

Mark - as an aside...I don't get to read blogs as much as I used to...so I am catching up on your blog today and I must say...your blog just keeps getting better and better. You're a great read. Nice job. :)
