RUSH: Dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut! The Global Warming Stack. Nobody's aborting any elements of that. It just keeps --
(Playing of What a Horrible World parody song.)
RUSH: Shut up, Al! I wasn't through talking. The stack keeps growing.
(Continued playing of song.)
RUSH: You hear Algore just exhaled. Did you hear that? He just exhaled.
(Continued playing of song.)
RUSH: Oh, yeah (singing). I have to tell you, the original version of that, Louis Armstrong? I just love Louis Armstrong. There's a part of me... I wish I was alive when Louis was hot. That man has more talent than I have in my little finger. Sammy Davis, Jr., did, too. You ever heard Sammy Davis, Jr., sing "Feeling Good"? You ever heard of that song? I, don't either. It's supposedly some big classic that some cover artist is doing. Michael Bublé. Well... Anyway, on to the global warming update stack.
"A survey on climate change conducted in more than a dozen countries found that a majority of people in nations including South Korea, Australia, Iran and Mexico - but not the United States - view global warming as a critical threat." Thank you, Rush. Folks, this is what I mean by my country needing me. If I weren't here on this, do you realize how many of you people would have been duped simply because you are open receptacles for guilt? "In the U.S., about 46 percent of those questioned said global warming is critical, while four in 10 labeled it ‘an important but not critical threat,' in the survey conducted by The Chicago Council on Global Affairs and WorldPublicOpinion.org, in cooperation with other polling organizations. Among the other countries where the question was asked, the Ukraine was the only nation where less than four in 10 participants found global warming to be a critical threat. There, it was 33 percent. … The survey, which was released Tuesday, was first conducted in the United States, China and India. When organizations in other countries expressed interest, the effort was expanded." So we still have hope out there. Less than 50% think that it's a serious, critical threat. Again, thank you, Rush.
Jennifer Garner. You know, folks, I have to tell you, I remember when Walter Payton died -- Number 34, the Chicago Bears. I'll never forget Virginia McCaskey -- the daughter of George Halas, at a press conference after Walter Payton had died -- in tears. She said, "This is why I have tried to make it a practice not to get personally close to the players." This next story is why it is foolish to fantasize about, to hope to get close to, actors. Jennifer Garner and her empty-headed husband, Ben Afflection, want more kids. She says she and her husband definitely want their daughter, who was born in December 2005, to have some brothers and sisters. They plan to start trying after Jennifer finishes her latest act. (I loved her in Alias. This just tears me apart to learn that she's a blithering idiot.) She cries, folks. The summation is she cries for her daughter and herself over global warming. She actually is reduced to tears. She cries now more than ever before since she's a mother. "Since I've become a mother, I cry more because I care about things more. I can't watch a movie where something happens to a child. I've always cared about global warming," and now there seems to be an urgency, and she's reduced to tears.
And carbon credits, ladies and gentlemen! They're one of the biggest scams to come down the pike in a long time, carbon credits. The creators of the carbon credit scheme are cashing in on it. The two creators of the carbon scheme are Maurice Strong and Algore. Now, the name Maurice Strong is not widely known in general public circles, but Maurice Strong is one of the wealthiest and most private manipulators of world politics. He was in charge of the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. Remember, we had a correspondent down there? The former Washington state governor, Dixie Lee Ray, went down there, and she had fallen out of favor with environmentalist wackos. Let me just give you a quote from Maurice Strong, who was heading up the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio:
In this little quote you have the encapsulation of the entire purpose of the global warming movement, or any liberal movement. Look at their enemies. They want to destroy Wal-Mart; they want to destroy Big Oil; now they're upset over Halliburton moving to Dubai. Sheila Jackson Lee yesterday, she's all upset Halliburton is leaving because they're in her district. Hey, Sheila! Don't worry about it! Those are "jobs Americans won't do." Just get some more illegal immigrants in here and keep Halliburton fully populated in their remaining little office space in Houston. What's the big deal? Why the panic? "Isn't the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn't it our responsibility to bring that about?" Maurice Strong, Algore's partner in the invention, the creation of the carbon offset scam. Story is from the Canada Free Press. You have green money funding and when to bail out of stocks. The story is long. We'll try to link to it at www.RushLimbaugh.com so that you can see the whole thing. I don't have time to read it all to you. It prints out to five pages, but Maurice Strong (born April 29th, 1929, Oak Lake, Manitoba) together with George Soros, is attempting to organize export of the Chevy automobile to China. He was a senior advisor to Kofi Annan, and working in the background as an advisor to powerful world figures. He's been featured in a number of conspiracy theories. CBC reporter Ann Marie McDonald described him "as a cross between Rasputin and Machiavelli."
But he and Algore created the whole carbon offset scam. A carbon offset is basically this. You have your "carbon footprint," the way you live your life -- your house, how you travel, what you eat and so forth. You can actually go to a website and calculate it. The interesting thing about this website is I cannot put in my actual data. It doesn't account for things that large. But my carbon offset would be bigger than Gore's. Let's say my carbon offset is calculated to be whatever it is. I can send this company the money and they claim they'll go out and plant trees or invest in an Al Gore-owned company with Maurice Strong that will, in turn, invest in companies that pollute less and so forth and allow me to continue to make my same carbon footprint. That's what Algore's doing with his mansion in Nashville. So people are planting trees, but nobody's reducing! No leftists are reducing their actual amounts of pollution. Oh, no, no. They are to be praised for this, and it's a total scam. Anyway, the Boston Globe even has a story about it today. "Carbon Confusion - Buying Emission Offsets is a Challenge for Consumers." This is about a woman named Sara Demetry who went out and did this and found out it was a total scam.
RUSH: What's this babe's name out at Exhale? Aspen Baker. There it is: Aspen Baker, the founder and executive director of Exhale. (exhaling) Aspen... We gotta continue to provide this woman with ideas here to expand her thriving abortion sympathy card business. Aspen, try this. Surely any woman getting an abortion would like a little gift along with the card. A card, for one thing, an e-card especially. Some of these animated e-cards you can't even print 'em out. You've gotta look at them on the computer. You need somebody you can hold and touch. We here at the EIB Network (which means me) have come up with a fabulous idea for you, Aspen, and that is: In addition to the e-card, well, give the option for donors to provide a lifetime supply of carbon credits for all the carbon footprints not left by the aborted child. You can send certificates along with the abortion card: Sympathy, lifetime carbon credits based on your lifestyle and what his carbon footprint would be, and you can live guilt free on two levels.
Continue to pollute, and nobody will be worried about it. By the way, scientists are getting death threats for climate denial. Scientists who question mankind's impact on climate change have received death threats. By the way, Herman Cain had a great line. He said, (paraphrasing) "Of course liberals have to believe that man caused global warming. Man's the only element on earth that can pay taxes." No question liberals would love to send God a tax bill, but the problem for liberals is that sending God a tax bill, they wouldn't know where to find him.
