RUSH: Here is David in Lakeland, Florida. You’re next on Open Line Friday. Hi.
CALLER: Hey, Rush. I was just calling about, I’ve been reading online recently about all this money that Algore now has at his disposal through all these investment funds, and the last total I saw was about $1.9 billion earmarked for clean tech investments and different funds and different investment firms —
RUSH: Most of them are fraudulent. It’s a giant hoax.
CALLER: Well, but when you think about it —
RUSH: Basically it’s planting trees, you know, and turning chicken manure into some kind of fuel to do with your lawn mower. Who the hell knows what it is. All a big joke.
CALLER: Yeah. Well, I think we’ve reached this point where we need to start talking about these global warming people and all the different things we need to do. We need to give it its own new term, and I’m thinking Big Weather is what we need to group all these people under now. I mean, what’s the difference, Big Oil makes profits, Big Weather? You know, it’s the same kind of thing, just they’re trying to put a different spin on it, but ultimately money and control is what they’re after, Big Weather.
RUSH: I’ll tell you something, I feel good about this. We can call ’em Big Weather. That’s not a bad idea, but I think there are better ones. I think we’re winning here. Algore’s had to go out and invest $300 million in this thing, get people like Newt Gingrich and Nancy Pelosi sitting in a black and white TV ad on a couch outside in Washington talking about their mutual interest in all this. It must mean that his movie didn’t work. But here’s this story again, this time in the UK Telegraph: ‘Global warming will stop until at least 2015 because of natural variations in the climate.’
We talked about this yesterday. This is about ocean currents in the Pacific, in the Atlantic, and they naturally cool the planet. Nothing we’re doing. Every bit of damage we’re doing is on the warming side, right. So all of a sudden here comes a massive movement, is going to cool the planet, for 15 years! And then global warming will resume. Well, one of two things is going on here. Either the global warming crowd knows there isn’t any warming, and that’s probably the case, and the second thing we can say is wait a minute, wait a minute, now, wait a minute, if there are natural cooling cycles (gasping) might there also be natural warming cycles (gasping)? And the reason that’s important is because all the warming is being attributed to you and me, not the ChiComs and not the Taiwanese. It’s all our fault.
Here’s the best idea. John Coleman, founder of the Weather Channel, has proposed taking Algore and other environmental wackos to court. He did so at a conference in New York in March. Since then, John Coleman has received thousands and thousands of e-mails with lots of support and thousands of these people want to donate to a legal fund to sue Algore. He hopes that the court could be the venue to settle the debate over what he calls the biggest scam in history and expose global warming alarmism as silly hype. I think it’s maybe our only alternative to just hunkering down and waiting it out. He claims the mainstream media ignores what those skeptical of manmade global warming have to say while the educational community does not even debate the issue. ‘Without the media and the educational institutions,’ said Coleman, ‘what resource do we have to counter these people? We’re not going to be heard unless we can find a place to be heard, and a court of law may be a place where we could get a fair hearing. If the judge had a nonpolitical, scientific approach in reaching a decision, we could win this lawsuit. It’s something that’s in the works. I have no announcement to make now, but numerous people are involved, and it remains a valid possibility.’ That would be awesome. That would be fabulous.
