Al Gore: 'Time to say goodbye to coal,
oil and gas worldwide'

Original Article

Posted By: NorthernDog, 10/30/2021 9:35:04 AM

Former Vice President Al Gore called on the world to "say goodbye to coal, oil and gas" to fight climate change in a video released Friday ahead of the upcoming UN COP 26 global warming conference. Oil, gas and coal are the source of 79% of U.S. energy consumption, according to the latest data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Nuclear energy provides 9% of U.S. energy, while renewable energy accounts for 12%. Gore called on public and private sector leaders to "get real" about immediately reducing greenhouse gas emissions and about moving away from fossil fuels to "clean" energy.


You first Algore. Let's see you jet around the world using solar panels on the plane's tail.

And why don't you explain that to Chairman Xi, you preening, self-righteous hypocrite. Our country would not have industrialized and won two world wars were it not for coal. What do you think set the stage for our current tech prowess?

In the last two weeks we have had almost no sun or wind. How do I have electricity for my home with no fossil fuels being used? When Gore is ready to give up his private plane and his mansion, then I might consider listening to what he has to say.

He/They lump Hydro/Geothermal, biomass(rotting vegetation) and even burning WOOD into their "Renewables" pie..but what they really are talking about is wind/Solar..37% of the 12% "Renewables"...4% of energy needs. At a higher COST, and with a higher carbon requirement to build/install/maintain than ANY other energy production method. Wind/Solar cannot generate enough energy to even BUILD more wind/solar. At the same time they refuse to acknowledge and embrace that Nukes are the Cleanest, longest lasting, most efficient and cost effective power generation system that technology has ever found.

Al Gore wants to do away with oil, gas, and coal? What will he use in their place? Here's a hint: What was a pre-oil, gas, and coal society like? Answer: Primitive.

This is the prog's wet dream: do away with cheap, reliable energy under the guise of saving the planet. The result? More power, money and control for our "betters". Think it through. Your ability to move about freely is being eliminated by cars that have very limited range (if you can afford one). Your heating, food and power costs will consume most of your budget, so disposable income/personal wealth and the independence they bring is vastly curtailed. Eventually, single family housing is outlawed for the *common good*. You will own nothing and like it.

Because, #26, Americans generally won't fight unless they have nothing left to lose. Americans live in a gilded cage right now, with little freedom but a lot of material possessions. More than anything else right now, its the vaccine mandates that are threatening to take all that away by depriving people of their livelihoods. They may trick themselves into believing we are free, but take their jobs, and you might just see people decide its time to take more stern measures.

Al Gore, Sr. worked for Armand Hammer, who we later found out was the Soviet Union's paymaster for spies and turncoats during the Cold War. And I have heard the former head of the KGB in the USA, Alexi Kalugin speaking on counterintelligence and 'the insider threat' to a security conference that I attended, back in my top secret clearance days long ago. Kalugin told us the story of a 17 year old young man whose father was "an important American politician" who had told "a wealthy American businessman friend of mine" that the young man wanted to come out publically as a Communist. The businessman (likely Hammer) had the teen (likely Al Gore, Jr) talk to Gen. Kalugin before he did it. KGB boss Kalugin asked the young man to not publically announce it, that he could do more for worldwide Communism by staying silent and working to destroy the USA from within. I am convinced that KGB Gen. Kalugin's story is real, since the whole Armand Hammer deal was revealed by post Cold War intel releases, and we know that Al Gore, Sr. was funded by Hammer, and has many 'unusual' votes on key bills, voting against his Tennessee constituents' interests, but conveniently in ways that benefited the Soviets. If you are unaware about Armand Hammer, he was the only US businessman permitted to drill for oil in the Soviet Union in the Cold War and became extremely wealthy because the Soviets "somehow" trusted him, and him alone, to fine oil and profit from it. Turns out it was to fund their overseas spy networks with money laundered through Armand Hammer's petroleum company. The Gores, Sr. and Jr. have been traitors for two generations.

Lets cut to the chase. In a world without coal, oil, and gas, what percentage of the world population would not be supported? Who would choose which people are worthy to survive? What are the odds that those deemed 'worthy' would not survive either from the inevitable backlash? The left wails about nuclear apocalypse and climate apocalypse. They should fear a human apocalypse where humanity is at each other's throats for survival. Not necessarily against getting off coal, oil, and gas, but it has to be done properly. Know a family (in Florida) that uses solar power (subsidized installation) to power their home. Their electric went from $500/mo. to $30/mo. I just want to know what the cost was for everything, and are their solar panels and batteries paying for themselves. Seriously, how many watts of power are needed to produce a solar panel, and how many watts does that solar power produce?

Al Gore owns property in the wealthy Belle Meade, TN area. His environmental message has been largely ignored because his mansion is MASSIVE resulting in his being exposed as a con artist / blatant liar. His 10,070-square-foot estate near Nashville, TN, was reported as USING MORE THAN 21 TIMES MORE ENERGY THAN THE AVERAGE US HOUSEHOLD. The 20-room mansion in upscale Belle Meade uses 230,889 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity during 12 months; or roughly 21.4 times more than the 10,812 kWh a year used up by the typical American household. It is also claimed that the 33 solar panels installed on Mr. Gore’s home produced only 5.7 percent of the energy his home consumed in any given past year. Al Gore managed to earn a net worth of $300 Million. Where he made his money? Various investment deals and savvy business investments. His production company, Current TV was purchased by Al Jazeera for $500 million. As a result and thanks to his 20% stake in Current TV Gore netted around $100 million in pre-tax profits. Gore is also a board member of Apple Inc, and owns $35 million worth of Apple shares. He is also the chairman of Generation Investment Management which has $7 billion in assets. No wonder the climate change activist has multi million dollar accounts.

All politicians, etc. who are say "Time to say goodbye to coal, oil and gas" should have their utilities: electric, gas, and oil shut off. For the oil they must not be permitted to travel by any other means than electric airplanes, cars (including rental vehicles), and sailboats or yachts. And, should be blocked from any place that uses any coal, oil and gas.

The Virginia governor’s race is in full swing Saturday with just three days left until Election Day, but the small crowd that greeted Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe could be a premonition of what’s to come. At an event supported by Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., in Norfolk, the former governor was greeted by a crowd of roughly 40 people. Despite the small crowd size, McAuliffe championed the number of early voters who have already cast their ballots in the tightly contested race.

Coal, a pariah fuel for climate activists, has made a quiet comeback this year in the post-lockdown economic resurgence. Coal stockpiles at power plants are getting so low that the regional electric grid operator, PJM Interconnection, has taken steps to prevent a system collapse this winter similar to Texas earlier this year. PJM, based near Valley Forge, this month imposed new rules on power plants in 13 states and the District of Columbia to make sure electricity generators do not run short of fuel during a cold snap. The rules could force some coal generators to curtail operations to build

HELENA, Mont. — Montana has become the latest state to stop making license plates because of disruption in the U.S. aluminum supply — another example of supply chain problems caused by the pandemic. Montana Correctional Enterprises, which makes the plates at the state prison, ran out of aluminum last week, said Carolynn Bright, spokesperson for the Montana Department of Corrections. Another shipment of aluminum isn’t expected until December, officials said. “We knew this might be a possibility because it’s been an issue at other license plate factories throughout the nation,” said Gayle Butler, administrator of Montana Correctional Enterprises, a division

Former Vice President Al Gore called on the world to "say goodbye to coal, oil and gas" to fight climate change in a video released Friday ahead of the upcoming UN COP 26 global warming conference. Oil, gas and coal are the source of 79% of U.S. energy consumption, according to the latest data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Nuclear energy provides 9% of U.S. energy, while renewable energy accounts for 12%. Gore called on public and private sector leaders to "get real" about immediately reducing greenhouse gas emissions and about moving away from fossil fuels to "clean" energy.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations is reporting a new high in the bullying of Muslim children in California public, charter and non-Islamic private schools. In a statewide survey of 708 Muslim students aged 11 to 18 years old, 55% reported “feeling unsafe, unwelcome or uncomfortable at school because of their Muslim identity,” the highest level in five such reports since the biennial study began in 2013, CAIR-CA reported. Hussam Ayloush, head of the civil rights group’s California chapter, told The Washington Times that the results confirm American Muslims have “faced growing challenges due to Islamophobia” in popular culture and public hate crimes during the past 20 years

Concerns about President Joe Biden’s mental abilities have gone mainstream. Although the press has largely overlooked Biden’s gaffes, his disastrous performance at a decidedly friendly CNN townhall prompted the Wall Street Journal to editorialize that Biden’s “frequent public confusion about the major issues of the day is a reason for the growing public concern.” Even the notoriously partisan “Saturday Night Live” has started to use Biden’s mental acuity as a punchline. One of the show’s characters has quipped about how “insiders are also saying that, during meetings, President Biden repeatedly uses the f-word in conversation. More concerning, the f-word he keeps using is ‘forget.’”

On Saturday, the president urged energy producing countries at the summit to boost oil production to pressure OPEC+ nations to increase supply and reduce gas prices around the world.
