PRESIDENT OBAMA: We will restore science to its rightful place.
VOICE: A series dedicated to President Obama's passion for everything science.
CALLER: If science were religion ‑‑ and believe me it's not. I mean, it's crazy to talk and to think, you know, that some imaginary being just created Earth and life out of thin air when obviously our planet and life began when two rocks collided. Duh, hello. But if science were a religion, I think it's pretty clear who the god of science would be. Representative Ed Markey from Massachusetts bowed to the altar of the science god last week when he appeared before congress and he said, glows, long before greenhouse gases and global warming became subject of daily discussions, Al Gore debated ways to improve the clean air act. Vice President Gore was a leader of the debate in the 1980s and now the whole world knows that he has long been a visionary. It sometimes is said that a prophet is someone who is right but too soon. Al Gore is an example of someone who is not only right early but very early. In fact, he dedicated his life to educating our country so they, too, saw the threats that he foresaw decades ago.
Now, I don't want to, you know, bring into question his holiness Al Gore, but isn't a prophet supposed to be right? Educating the country so that they, too, saw the threats he foresaw decades ago is not being right. That's being an educator, not a prophet, or accurate. Gore is still talking about threats. Nothing has happened that he has predicted. The only thing that has changed is government has realized that they can make a boatload of money through taxes on this "Science" so they are pretending to care because all they really care is about taxes. And even that is in jeopardy.
At Al Gore's hearing, former energy and commerce committee chairman representative John Dingell, Democrat from Michigan, said, quote:
REPRESENTATIVE DINGELL: Nobody in this country realizes that cap and trade is a tax and it's a great big one.
GLENN: Cap and trade is a tax, and it's a great big one. The holy one, Al Gore, had not been very happy because he and others on the far left have been trying to hide this fact. According to moveon.org, quote: If Republicans convince voters that clean energy legislation amounts to a new tax, Obama's plan is toast, end quote. Gore knows his window on cap and trade tax is dwindling because to not let a crisis go to waste, there actually has to be a crisis. And support in the polls for action on global warming is rapidly dwindling. Crisis averted without a tax? Oh, that's not possible. No, sometimes god, otherwise known as Al Gore, works in mysterious ways.
