RUSH: I have been shocked (pleasantly so) to see some in the Drive-By Media recognize our Algore countdown clock at RushLimbaugh.com. Back in 2006, Algore said that we had ten years remaining. Ten years. Humanity had 10 years left to save the earth from what was then called global warming.
And if we didn’t save it in ten years, it was all lost, it was hopeless, and the fate of humanity would be hanging in the balance. Well, that 10-year anniversary comes up this month, January 27. Gore said we have 10 years left before the earth cooks, on January 27th, 2006. Let me read from that program that day. “Try this one from yesterday’s Stack. I don’t know if you people know this or not, but Al Gore has been out at the Sundance Film Festival out there in Park City, Utah. … [A]pparently Al Gore is working on a movie …
“An Inconvenient Truth, and the movie will document his efforts to raise alarm on the effects of global warming, and so he brought Tipper and the kids out there. He’s attending parties and posing for pictures with his fans. He’s enjoying macaroni and cheese at the Discovery Channel’s soiree. He’s palling around with Laurie David of Curb Your Enthusiasm, who is the husband of Larry David,” and Gore said we had only ten years left. This followed Ted Danson’s 10-year prediction in 1988 that we only had 10 years to save the oceans, and if we failed to save the oceans in ten years, that would mean the end of humanity, essentially.
Well, that 10-year anniversary came and went. So we decided to start the Algore countdown clock right there on the front page at RushLimbaugh.com. You may have to scroll down to see it, but it’s always been there. And, lo and behold, The Daily Caller actually picked up on this. “Limbaugh’s Al Gore Armageddon Clock About to Hit Zero After Ten Years — Former Vice President Al Gore made a prediction for the earth’s point of no return 10 years ago and talk radio host Rush Limbaugh held him to it since that day in 2006.
“The countdown clock on Limbaugh’s site has been running for nearly 10 years since Gore’s apocalyptic prediction about the earth as a result of greenhouse emissions. Less than a month remains in the countdown. Gore predicted, when his film … was first released at the Sundance Film Festival, that the earth would be in ‘a true planetary emergency’ within the next ten years unless drastic action was taken to reduce greenhouse gases.” Of course drastic action has not been taken, and we do not in any way face “a true planetary emergency” except in the minds of people on the left and in the Drive-By Media.
And The Daily Caller goes on to have a little story here about our countdown clock and how we’re nearing the moment of truth.
