We need the UN to inform us that Global Warming will hit the poor the hardest?

Of course, the latest and greatest head line in the continuing Global Warming crusade is the conclusion by the UN that the poor will be the hardest hit by rising temperatures. On the surface that certainly sounds reasonable to me. The poor are always the hardest hit by bad events.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) chairman, Rajendra Pachauri, said in launching the latest report: " The poorest of the poor in the world - and this includes poor people in prosperous societies - are going to be the worst hit. People who are poor are least able to adapt to climate change."

We need the UN for this? Was money really spent to draw this conclusion?

A few weeks ago we were well on the way to this conclusion thanks to the leading advocate of the man made Global Warming theory, Al Gore.

You see, we know that Al Gore is a guy that believes that catastrophic, life altering events, are in the near future of this planet. And yet, in his own personal life he is doing nothing to help stop this. At his home in Tennessee we have learned that Al uses 20 times the electricity that most Americans use. If you are a Global Warming alarmist you might easily conclude that he is the problem.

But, it has never occurred to him that a wealthy elitist, like himself, would have to share in the solution to what he believes is the largest problem faced by mankind.

He stated to Congress recently that “Our world faces a true planetary emergency."


Does anyone really think that Al is acting like there is an emergency?

Of course the Al for president supporters will tell you that Al is working on reducing his giant footprint. He works in his house. He buys offsets. He does more good then harm.

If you don't draw the conclusion that Al is so much of a wealthy elitist that he won't swallow his own medicine, then you have to conclude he doesn't believe the theory at all.

So why is the media going hysterical over the lesson Al Gore has already demonstrated?
