From MEDIA MATTERS FOR AMERICA, the story of CNN Headline News host Glenn Beck being bold enough to go where most in primetime never do: straight to the essence of spin and then around and around it in emphasis of what it means to be dizzy, and, in the case of Al Gore’s movie, AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, the defining facts that might have made him truthful had he minded them but which have instead shown him to be dizzy because he didn’t.


BECK: So, if you look at this chart, you will see the CO2, and it mirrors the temperature. Now, what I find interesting about this chart is CO2 seems to naturally go up by itself. Hmmm, I don’t remember those 200,000-year-old cars; I think Henry Ford wasn’t around yet. I don’t know if Fred Flintstone actually did have a car, but apparently, according to this chart, somebody was driving around in a car or an airplane. Maybe it was Al Gore giving the frickin speech at Stone Age colleges. I’m not sure, but it definitely correlates.

Now, what happened where this thing falls apart — and it won’t for most people who go to this movie — is he then projects what’s coming. Again, it’s the projection that’s the problem. See, when you take a little bit of truth and then you mix it with untruth, or your theory, that’s where you get people to believe. You know? It’s like Hitler. Hitler said a little bit of truth, and then he mixed in “and it’s the Jews’ fault.” That’s where things get a little troublesome, and that’s exactly what’s happening. Now, if Al Gore’s projection is right about the CO2 level going as high as he says it will, then the temperature here on planet Earth will be about 400,000 degrees. We’ll be the sun; we’ll be the frickin sun. But that’s a huge “if’.”

    If a Gore fell in the forrest, would anyone listen (or care?). Nope. He has to say this kind of stuff to remain relevant. If AlGee really wants to make an impact about pollution, if we are to believe that what he is saying is fact (not), then take your message to the East. Go to Europe and Asia. Those places are a hell of a lot more screwed up than we are when it comes to pollution.

    But if AlGee is the best hope or any hope for the Dems in 08, then I say let him run! And we will see if the environment or national security will win the battle of ideas.

    Great Post

    Hi, pat:

    Thanks for the compliment! And for visiting and taking the time to comment.

    I agree with your general opinion about Al Gore. The biggest peeve I have at present with and about Gore is that he is reducing the seriousness of our environmental, global pollution concerns to a political issue and by doing so, reduces the seriousness of the issues themselves — because people dismiss the issues more easily when they perceive them as being Al Gore political tools, or memes, depending.

    I’ve never taken Gore seriously and I am not entirely sure why anyone would or ever has. Sadly, some do.
