Copenhagen is Coming. Update: And Obama is going!

Cross An Inconvenient Truth with Outkast and…you got this, the best eco video ever? It addresses the whole Climate Change Denier phenomenon—akin in my mind to those who, in the ’30s, shouted down Churchill and his “warmongering” fear of a rising Nazi German threat.

Al Gore finally accepts Lord Monckton’s challenge to a highly uncivilized debate over the issue of anthropogenic climate change, in a special extended edition of RapNews, as we count down to the Copenhagen Climate Conference – aka COP15.

Is it all just a lie spread by the NWO so that Obama can sign a treaty to cede US sovereignty and usher in a one-world government to Cap-&-Trade tax innocent carbon emitters and SUV drivers like you and me? Or are we truly fucked, as the latest science seems to suggest, and feedback loops will bring about environmental, social and economic meltdown and collapse before the next season of Sex and the City? Explore these issues, and more, with your charming host – Robert Foster.

Bonus: Ed Begley, Jr. turns Hulk on Fox News, which is deathly afraid of Government coming into their home and taking their incandescent light bulbs, but doesn’t mind if Government comes into our bedrooms and makes laws about who can marry who. Crazy. With thanks for the tip to Ecorazzi.

    Instead of losing energy over issues we personally don't have a final say in, I say let's just save energy by being productive, positive, and doing things that truly inspire change.

  2. […] we head into Copenhagen talks, only 57% of the American public now “believes” in “Global Warming.” […]

  3. […] the time for argument is past. There’s a clear consensus among scientists—90% agree that Climate Change is significantly caused by human activities. 94% agree that it’s a real and present danger, […]

  4. […] us all going there for awhile…but something was always just too ridiculous about the “lord.” […]
