What is Al Gore?

Neil Craig, serial botherer of mendacious fuckwit journalists everywhere, addresses his latest missive to the BBC.
Letter to the BBC Director General
Dear Mark Thompson,
It was with some surprise that I heard BBC News state at 10.15 last night, as part of your promotion of the global warming concerts that "Al Gore is a climate scientist".

Mr Gore is many things.

He is a former US Vice President.

He is a war criminal who supported illegal war & genocide against Serbian Untermensch.

He is a tobacco heir.

He is a film star of an, at least partially, fictional work.

He is an Emmy award winner.

He is the recipient of money from the British government for showing this film to schoolchildren despite it being strictly illegal to do so without providing political balance.

He is man paid millions as an after dinner speaker on alleged global warming.

He is the owner of companies which will, for a price, provide you, or himself, with absolution for your alleged carbon sins by what is called offsetting.

He is somebody with an enormous "carbon footprint" partly due to his 26 room house with heated swimming pool & partly to jetting around the world to proclaim that ordinary people should not jet around the world.

He is someone who has publicly asserted that smoking is major cause of alleged global warming.

What he is not, under any circumstances, is a scientist, climate or otherwise.

If this is an error you will be able to publicly correct this on tonight's news. If it is not it is deliberate dishonesty as part of the BBC's continuing campaign to promote catastrophic global warming (or as it is now less demandingly described "climate change") while censoring the fact that, since 1998, there has been none.

Al Gore is a fucking scientist? Don't make me fucking laugh!

So, what do we think—deliberate lie or fucking shockingly sloppy reporting?

I too noticed this, but assumed I must have miss-heard (and dismissed it) until I read your post, thanks for restoring my faith in my own perceptions.

Maybe it is part of a campaign of subliminal indoctrination on the part of the self admittedly politically biased BBC.

On the other hand it could be down to the fact that from the evidence visible to any who watch it over time, the BBC seem to be employing the literately challenged to do much of their research and feed their auto cues, people who confuse words that sound similar and think punctuation is an imperialist plot.

How people can be sucked in by Al Bore is beyond me. He's so wooden that a petrified forest has more life.

Not only that but he is a complete and utter hypocrite.

The arrogance of people like him and the people that think as he does that anything we do will stop GW is truly mind boggling.

GW is not man-made. What we should do is try to learn how to adapt; not try to stop it - because we cannot.

It doesn't bother me whether it is a lie or a bad report, all I know is that it certainly isn't worth paying a license fee for.

Oh yeah? So what has happened for the last ten years, exactly?

Over at the ASI, they are posting some of the winning entries of the Young Writers on Liberty. One does not want to put such keen minds off,...
