Global Lameness

I don’t care what you think about either the science or the politics; this kind of behavior is just childish:

Gore arrived late to a House congressional hearing on Wednesday after deciding not to sit through Republican opening statements expressing skepticism at the science he uses to warn against global warming.

    He doesn’t need to hear the words of heretics. They’ll all be burned (er, frozen?) at the stake soon enough.

    Okay, how does Gore skip the Republican opening comments when his Global Warming hearing is supposed to “bring both sides together”

    I hope the NYT does another story about him.

    If your the Goracle the rules of the US Congress do not apply nor does the evidence of real science. Being carbon neutral is big business need I say more.

    Typical. I hear that he won’t go on stage with anyone who disagrees. Happened in Norway or Sweden or one of those places. He can’t take the heat… ironic?

    If what he and the scientists are saying has even 50% truth to it, lateness and snarky remarks are all beside the point!

    Global_warming_quad_nrBush administration officials throughout the government have engaged in White House-directed efforts to stifle, delay or dampen the release of climate change research that casts the White House or its policies in a bad light, says a new report that purports to be the most comprehensive assessment to date of the subject.

    Researchers for the non-profit watchdog Government Accountability Project reviewed thousands of e-mails, memos and other documents obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests and from government whistle-blowers and conducted dozens of interviews with public affairs staff, scientists, reporters and others.

    The group says it has identified hundreds of instances where White House-appointed officials interfered with government scientists’ efforts to convey their research findings to the public, at the behest of top administration officials.

    The report is slated to be released tomorrow at a hearing before the House Science Committee, which is investigating the issue.
