No. If you're gonna sue Al Gore you'll have to end up suing all the politicians on CapitalHill. Republicans and Democrats have always taken a different stance on almost all issues, global warming included. Democrats and liberals tend to freak out and overplay the issue while Republicans downplay the issue pretending it doesn't exists or if it does, that pretending it isn't there will solve the problem. So who is worse?

Anyways, ALL politicians and ALL activists are motivated by reasons other than the actual truth whether that be self interest or self-righteousness. Neither parties have ever really stated the whole truth in any issue, global warming aside.

Suing Al Gore is a WASTE OF TIME but more importantly, A WASTE OF PUBLIC FUNDS/MONEY that could and should be put towards better use WHERE WE REALLY NEED IT. All lawsuits waste public funds, it's NOT free and somewhere along the line it has to come out of the taxpayers pockets (which includes me) and I DO NOT appreciate having my money go towards such frivolous cases. If I have to pay taxes, I want that money to go where it really matters and where it WILL make a difference. Put that money towards our education system for crikes sake, or towards our apalling social security system or towards programs to benefit the needy but PLEASE do not waste my dollars on Al fucking Gore.

That aside, activism is not a crime, even when it's misguided. A suit regarding global warming will not turn out a verdict in favor of either party as scientist themselves disagree on the extent of damage which an overabundance of CO2 will cause (note: they disagree on the extent of environmental change, NOT on the issue of global warming itself). Lastly, our legal system does not in my opinion have the knowledge and or authority to judge the scientific community and or any scientific theory as right or wrong. Anyways, It's quite possible that Al Gore actually DOES believe in everything he has said (cause he's a bit of a whacko) and believes that what he's said is the truth, he's not dumb but he's not particularly the brightest guy on the block and seems to be easily led by his emotions and his heart rather than logic and his brain. Al Gore being Al Gore, any discrepancies or over-representation can most likely be attributed to misguidedness rather than actual willing fraud.

As for the damn news, Michael Moore had it correct when he said ALL news, especially the news here in the U.S. is often very sensationalized and almost always alarmists and this is going to be especially true of anything especially anything remotely theoretical in nature.

And for all you people out there who like to deny the existence of global warming, I've got news for you, global warming IS a real issue and it can become a real problem in the future depending on what we do now and how we live our lives. Everything has a cause and an effect, you simply can't escape that fact. There are consequences for EVERYTHING we do in life and we (or our children) will have to pay at some point in time.

As for global warming, AGAIN, I repeat, the only debate regarding global warming among meteorologists is how much damage and or change the increase in CO2 will bring about and how quickly those changes will occur. The fact that our planet is warming is NOT in dispute.

It IS a scientific fact that an overabundance of CO2 is a factor that DOES lead to global warming. ALL and I repeat ALL meteorologists know this to be true and AGREE on this. Again, they only disagree on the extent to which the presence of too much CO2 will change and or effect our environment, how long such changes will take to occur, and how much CO2 can actually be attributed to human excretion (for lack of a better term).

EDIT: I didn't know Al Gore recieved the Nobel Prize but I'd have to say that is pretty damn ridiculous. Oh right, and also, excuse any grammatical errors in my long ass blurb as english isn't my first and usual language (although it has become that since moving here and living here and working here etc...)



QFT (Quoted For Truth) imo

And i'd like to ad that i hate every1 that denies that Global Warming is and serious issue. (No Offense, Maybe)

The poll options sound biased and leading towards not suing Al Gore. Just putting that out there, I refuse to vote on a bias poll or rather a poll with biased options. The poll creator should pick himself up a can of Bias-Be-Gone.

You're an idiot. There are two options for each and they all sound equally stupid.


Oh wow, such strong assumptions from someone who can magically measure my intelligence from one post, like I said the options sound biased, I didn't specify whether it was really bias or only a little but I still percieve the 4 options aside from the last option that doesn't specify a yes/no answer as a little bias.

[yes] HELL YEAH!!! get er done!!!
Okay here is a little comedy

yes, because as we all know its just cyclical weather patterns, AND HE LIES!!
Here is just plain sarcasm

NO, thier all red necks that have no care about the world.
Here is more plain sarcasm

no, because atleast he is making us more aware of how we impact our world

Here we have a choice actually has something to do with the matter without any sarcasm, here we have a somewhat intelligent or at least reasonably sound option for those who don't think Al Gore should be sued.

Where is an option like this for those who happen to think Al Gore should be sued, no where to be found, thus I find the options biased, of course this is simply my own personal opinion but I have two friends viewing the poll with me who also happen to find the poll options biased, thus our little opinion has become a tenet among me and my friends.

Don't misunderstand I'm not specifying whether I think Al Gore should be sued or not, personally I really don't care but someone who posted before had some pretty good reasons why Al Gore shouldn't be sued while still staying neutral on the matter. Unfortunately there isn't any basic yes or no options and I didn't agree with any of the choices presented in the poll.

See. I told you! They're all equally stupid but yeah it doesn't really matter. Even if they do sue him it won't do any good.


Aside for the option I responded to in red, I agree with you, I don't agree with that option but it's a sound or common reason to not sue Al Gore, such a reason can't be found that says you should sue Al Gore, so the poll is unbalanced and me and my friends find the poll at least a little biased. Still I don't understand why you would call me an idiot?

They awarded the Nobel Peace prize, an award meant to show the world the best of the best, the cream of the crop, the most intelligent people in the world.

http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/peace/laureates/

Just look at the previous years...

Atomic Energy Agency, Woodrow Wilson, Albert Schweitzer, MOTHER THERESA..

Al gore SULLIES the names of these AMAZING people and AMAZING inventions...

WTF did he do? He made a REALLY bad Documetary, that had half truths, and blatent LIES... Ask any meteorologist, they'll tell you the truth about global warming... It does not exist in the way that Al Gore tries to say it does.

Now i'm not going to go into a whole debate on Global warming. Let's just realise that it's a myth, in the way that Al Gore promotes it.

I just find it very sad for the people in the past who have won the nobel peace prize based on honesty, integrity, and stamina of mental aptitude, as well as diligent research and application.

Just remember... Al Gore... invented the internet... so he MUST be telling the truth about global warming..*vomits*

Edit: just my last little bit on Global warming.... it's supposedly based on CO2 levels, right? That HUMANS are emitting DANGEROUSLY high levels of CO2... well.... this graph kinda says it all for me..

^yeah..... cause it looks like it's getting warmer... because of the CO2..... oh yeah... i totally see it /sarcasm.

you ma'am.... are an idiot. you are NOT most scientists... and if you've READ the reports WRITTEN by the "quoted scientists" that al gore uses in his documentary... they are pretty much saying the opposite... FACTS DON"T LIE...
And it's VERY obvious that you HAVEN"T seen the data.


You, Ma'am, are my hero.

Why should we sue Al Gore? We're going to sue him because he's telling us that what we are doing is affecting our world and nature in a bad way? Basically he's just telling us that Global Warming is occuring and we just need to cut down on C02, use more efficient stuff, and recycle. Doing many ways to reduce co2.
