    ...I've been waiting for this to happen...I'm not a global warming believer...I do believe that the globe may be warming, but I don't think we've spread up the process as much as people suggest that we do. Natural Climate Cycle.

    Actually he is only suggesting other people sue Gore. I can think of two reasons for this.

    1) He doesn't want to waste his own money on an obviously frivolous case.

    2) He can't find a lawyer to take it either because of the obvious lack of financial incentives or they are all worried about being rule 11'ed for moronic lawsuits.

    If there was a class action suit by those harmed by all the hoopla of just Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth," they may well win. One place it's already been found at least wanting is in the British court:

    Nope Kathianne, that decision can't be generalised.

    And global warming marches on.

    So you mean, could it be.... the OP is a lie? :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    What it should really say is:

    Weather Channel Owner Should Be Sued By Al Gore for encouragment of frivolous lawsuits.

    I think he is encouraging people to sue different types of global warming advocates. The weather channel owner wants to sue Gore himself. From what I gathered from the article, the owner had attempted to arrange debates with Gore but was unable to get Gore to debate them. So if a civil suit was filed, they would be forced to "debate" in the court of law.

    Here's a quote from the article that I'm referring to.

    "Since we can't get a debate, I thought perhaps if we had a legal challenge and went into a court of law, where it was our scientists and their scientists, and all the legal proceedings with the discovery and all their documents from both sides and scientific testimony from both sides, we could finally get a good solid debate on the issue,"

    That isn't what the OP said, though, was it?

    As for "debate". What debate? The fact that all the reliable, peer reviewed science supports climate change?

    The problem for the confused folk on the right who, for some reason unbeknownst to me, think they should protect oil companies instead of the planet they're leaving their children, is that someone called it global "warming" instead of "climate change". This seems to give the right some type of satisfaction everytime something is cold.

    Fact: The planet is warming.
    Fact: This results in bizarre weather patterns (like Tornadoes in Brooklyn, NY)
    Fact: We contribute (note: I didn't say "cause", I said "contribute") by use of carbon based energy sources.
    Fact: It's good policy both environmentally and anti-terrorist, to wean off of oil.

    Fact: Your OP wasn't true. He didn't bring a suit himself. He wants the "little people" to do it for him so he can harass people out of telling the truth since the right has failed every other way.

    Cheers.
