Re: for fgarb, Gore's necessary energy usage for promoting CC (or himself)

I share Moore's views on most social issues, but I really don't trust the facts he brings up in his movies. I also haven't done a lot of research to back up my distrust, so I could be giving him an unfair rap, but I am skeptical.

I was once skeptical as well. But after I looked into it, I actually couldn't find anything wrong with his facts.

Just think of it this way. The conservatives would be screaming bloody murder if they could find anything wrong with his facts. But notice that it's always his conclusions that they try to attack.

I can understand why people are skeptical of his facts. He presents them in a grimmer light than most people would put them. Again, it's like saying "you are a shorty short short" rather than "you are vertically challenged". Well, both are technically true, but the first statement makes people wonder if it's a fact or if it's there just to make fun of someone.

BUSH’s house- “A central closet in the house holds geothermal heat-pumps drawing ground water through pipes sunk 300 feet into the ground.
The water (usually 67 degrees F.) heats the house in the winter and cools it in the summer.”

I wonder if Bush is Beta testing whether the same system that was used on his ranch can be retrofitted to cool off HELL ?. Cause that’s where he’s going for sending thousands of brave American Soldiers and many more thousands of Iraqi civilians to their deaths so that he and his buddies can make lotsa cash !!! (ask Scott McClellan) . I wonder if Halliburton can build a drilling rig that’ll go deep enough to lay the pipe work necessary to reach Hell ? Maybe THAT’S where all those billions of dollars that are unaccounted for in this so called “War” have been funneled to ?? If I were you, I’d be pissed that a great portion of the $4.00 per gallon that gasoline costs is going into the pockets of our current leadership via their 401k’s, direct stock ownership, or off shore slush funds !!!

Politicians are Politicians …on both sides !! ;-)

My Definition of “War” - When the rich people from your country want what the rich people from another country have…. then send the poor people to go and make it happen!!

Stop drinking the Kool-aid !!
