Goracle: Avoid Fiscal Cliff by Tackling Pretend Climate Cliff (Video)

Man of peace and noted junk scientist, Al Gore, wants lawmakers to avoid the fiscal cliff by tackling the (pretend) climate cliff.
That way Al can make more money.

Global warming ended 16 years ago.

The Hill reported:

Former Vice President Al Gore called for a carbon tax to be part of the “fiscal cliff” negotiations in the lame-duck session of Congress.

Gore, a longtime supporter of the tax, said the extra revenue could be used to lower tax rates.

“It will be difficult for sure but we can back away from the fiscal cliff and the climate cliff at the same time,” Gore said in an interview with The Guardian. “One way is with a carbon tax.”

Carbon tax proposals have gained increased attention in recent weeks as a way to battle climate change and, depending on how it’s structured, help curb the deficit. The idea remains a political longshot, but the buzz heightened this week when anti-tax advocate Grover Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform, told National Journal a carbon tax would not violate his pledge if it were offset with other rate reductions.

    Maybe Al Gore should argue for a reduction in carbon emissions from missiles and rockets fired from the Gaza Strip?

    Whack job.

    Didn’t they do that already, and get a string of bankruptcies and a bunch of very rich white Democrats?

    The AGW scam is redistributionist leftism – PERIOD. It is a big part of their playbook and MUST be resisted.

    I second that motion.

    we have to reach Gore’s inner chakra first…

    I think there is no doubt that the earth is warming. It’s still emerging from the last ice age, you see. And one day the earth will cool and re-enter another ice age. This cycle has been going on for hundreds of millions of years. Something other than humans is clearly the reason. Which do you think is likely more threatening to human life? More warming? Or another ice age?

    Anyway, why aren’t the climate scientists and people like Al Gore telling us these geological facts?

    I think they aren’t telling us because many of them – and specifically Al Gore – are INVESTED in companies that stand to gain from government pouring oceans of our money into those companies. The more we are frightened of “warming” the more they stand to profit. Not to put too fine a point on it – they – and specifically Al Gore – are pimping us.

    Manbearpig is super serial about global warming, climate change, occurrence of hurricanes, floods, fire and ice. If he can continue to con the rubes he’ll continue to make millions.

  • more money for the politicans less money for the workers.

    When we were kids, we would have called Gore a Dork and gave him a wedgie every day just to keep him humble.

    Former v.p. and current huckster, needs a Ralph Cramden applied, in the posterior, with a size 13. Might break his neck though.

    “the buzz heightened this week when anti-tax advocate Grover Norquist….”

    GROVER NORQUIST?

    Isn’t that the man That Michelle Bachman cited in her report? She said he is linked to the MUslim Brotherhood. Yes, indeedy, that’s the guy.

    Report cited by Bachmann claims Norquist linked to Muslim Brotherhood
    By Eric W. Dolan

    Anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist helped the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrate the U.S. government, according to the report that Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) cited in an attack on top State Department aide Huma Abedin.

    Earlier this month, Bachmann and four other Republicans sent a letter to inspectors general in the State, Homeland Security, Defense and Justice departments calling on them to investigate “potential Muslim Brotherhood infiltration” of the Obama administration by Abedin, an aide to Secretary Clinton and wife of former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY).

    As evidence of their claims, the five Republicans cited “The Muslim Brotherhood in America: The Enemy Within,” a ten-part video course produced by the Center for Security Policy.

    I’m sure some of the money from carbon taxes could be used to the lower the tax rates. But that’s cold comfort when your paying five times as much for electricity and gasoline, plus higher prices for goods and services when companies have to pass on their additional operating costs in order to stay in business.

    Al Gore’s global warming scam would be enough to make “There’s a sucker born every minute” P. T. Barnum blush. In fact, compared to Al Gore, P. T. Barnum looks like Mother Theresa.

    One of your best headlines ever! LOL!

  • centra

    They file lawsuits for this stuff and no one files for our loss of liberty. Ok

  • the only real tax cut is a net decrease in tax revenue. everything else is a bunko game.

    re: fiscal cliff negotiations: GOP agrees to the upper level tax increase under the condition that the money would be refunded to those taxpayers in full with interest if the debt isn’t reduced (dollar amount) by (certain date). In other words, don’t give something away without getting something in return!

    Think about it:

    1. Dems accuse GOP of having no new ideas: this is a new idea. Call it “Tax with a money back guarantee”
    2. Dems are very good at making GOP look like obstructionists: they won’t be able to make those accusations if the GOP agrees w/ conditions
    3. People want bipartisan solutions and they want gov’t accountability: this does both
    4. If raising taxes on the rich actually works and the debt goes down, everybody wins.
    5. If raising taxes on the rich DOESN’T work, and the debt does not go down, the Dems will be the ones who dropped the ball, and the GOP has an opportunity to demonstrate they know what they’re talking about when it comes to economic solutions

    Isn’t it a good idea to go off the cliff? There will be lots of cuts to government which will help reduce the debt! As long as the additional revenue from the tax increases goes towards the debt, this could be a large reduction of the national debt, which is one of our biggest problems, right?

    Historians will be arguing this questions for generations: How did this jackass rise to the level he did, even given his daddy’s coattails?

  • jaxson

    how about a nuclear winter for the middle east? that should do the trick. then Al could move there….

  • Flintstone F.

    A couple years ago Al Gore was trying to push the idea of a carbon tax in conjunction with a low carb diet.

    He suggested that we back away from the climate bacon burger while at the same time putting down the Big Mac.
