That's one way to put it
Obviously no ideological cousin of Canadian Liberals, a Liberal MP in Australia has called a certain former U.S. vice-president's documentary about a certain supposed meteorlogical phenomenon, "bullshit from beginning to end." If it is, then maybe there's an extra bathroom somewhere in that documentarian's palatial and energy-gobbling manse in which said excrement can be flushed down the toilet.

Liberals in Australia are the equivalents of Conservatives in Canada - in fact, I think the Liberal Party of Australia is nicknamed "The Tories." Go figure!
Still, this MP, Dennis Jensen (a professor of nuclear physics) should be honored for his clear-headed approach to this subject.

Regardless of the name of the party, this Australian MP could give lessons to our Conservative Party. Granted they are not in the same boat as the moonbats of the extreme left, but I would not put them on the right on this issue.
It is indeed refreshing to see a politician no matter where who has the integrity and courage to call a spade a spade.

The liberal party of Canada, as the democratic party down south have demonstrated, have little in common with classical liberalism as it is known.
They have both become extreme radical left wing movements, seemingly with one goal in mind, to destroy their own countries from within, and installing one world socialism.
They have become absolutely despicable, and their actions are on display daily for everyone to witness.
Hearing Ignatieff refer to the grieving families of air India, as well as 9/11, as a "sideshow" before striking down one of the few measures available in Canada to fight terrorism, going against the position of the liberal senate and many high ranking libs, only highlights the despicable nature of the brain trust now referred to as "liberal".
I am not even going to get into the incredible display being put on down south by the dems.
Hearing any one of these shrieking morons speak these days is enough to raise the bile in my throat.
It is time to stand up to these absolute ***holes and to say no more.
I have absolute zero tolerance for these people, they are a danger to our country and to our way of life.
I applaud the gentleman from down under for calling a spade a spade. Its time to do the same here.

Just to clarify, "liberals" in other countries are often on the right, perhaps more like "libertarians." I know it is that way in Holland because when I loaned one of Ann Coulter's books to my brother who lives there, he had a hard time adjusting to her describing "liberals" as leftwingers.

Terry: To be precise, it was not a Liberal MP who called Gore's "documentary" "bullshit from beginning to end" but Ray Evans who wrote "Nine facts about Climate Change."

Has anyone else heard this? Bjorn Lomborg the author of The Sceptical Environmentalist, told Al Gore he was going to attend his speech on global warming in Denmark, at that point Al Gore cancelled all speaking engagements in Denmark.
A couple friends of mine read the book and said it was excellent. One of them said it refutes that bs movie, pretty much point for point. Then he looked at the date it was written and was astonished to see it was written in 2001.
Al Gore (The inventor of the Internet, LOL) is a fraud on so many levels it's astounding. But you know that after winning an Oscar that movie has more sheep following it than ever.
I guess next years Oscar will go to James Cameron for debunking Christianity. I wonder when people are going to turn their backs on Hollywood for good? I must be in the minority, but I think Hollywood was supposed to exist for entertainment purposes, not propaganda.

So, did Al Gore play 'AL Gore' in the same manner that Stephen Colbert plays 'Stephen Colbert'?

Australians are allowed to speak truth to power? interesting...

Al Gore wanted publicity so he concocted enough
bullshit to make a story, have it documented in film and the suckers bought it, he won!
He'll get sorted in due course.
Susuki is our problem. He's got charitable status,
driving a big bus across country and preaching like an evangelist.
The sad part is his rhetoric is being
taken to the schoolyard where he has a captive and
impressionable audience. Never mind he is criticizing our Prime Minister without rebuttal
from the school children and his remarks are well
reported by the hacks and hounds in the media.
It's a crying shame.

I am not that worried about all this. Firstly the Goracle's mansion is an energy nightmare, which just goes to show that modern environmentalism is like 1930's laissez-faire Catholicism. As long as you don't actively blaspheme, you're pretty much free to keep doing as you've always done. No real need to change anything.
The attitude of modern people is that what Suzuki and his court of toadies require above all else, is deference. Environmental deference to the pathologies of the day.
See no one is actually ever going to do anthing concrete about AGW, because as Al Gore has already realised, the inconvenient truth is that actually fixing AGW is going to be terribly inconvenient, and that's the truth.
Once the true costs of Suzuki's Empire of Goodness and Virtue become apparent, you'll start to see a great deal more interest in what the Science is actually saying. Till then, just sit back and enjoy the Paris Hilton and Britney Spears of the "science" community.

Suzuki is to be classified as a religious preacher and doing his thing for that new religion, environmentalism. Just another "ism".

Neither of their Utopian worlds can ultimately withstand the weight of the leadership's hypocrisy.

I have read Bjorn Lomborg's book "The Skeptical Environmentalist" and recommend it highly. That is, if you have the time. It's a big book with a lot of notes. Amazon informed me that he's getting a follow-up book out in September. Bjorn has the detachment of a statistician and lets the numbers tell the story.

Suzuki's long trip in the big gas slurping bus ends tomorrow in Ottawa.
Very ironic that he is planning to play hockey on an OUTDOOR RINK, IN MARCH,IN CANADA, perfectly normal conditions for Canada, but he's flogging GLOBAL WARMING.
The kicker is we are going to have a big snowstorm, he may have to cancel.
Dammit, it's time to realize we are dealing with
people like Suzuki and his admirers/worshipers like Dion and Iggy who are sadly afflicted with artificial intelligence which is no match for
It's on display every day in QP. Have a look.

You mean to tell me that you didn't realise before that Paris Hilton is David Suzuki in drag? Shame on you!

No such thing as 'Catholicism of the 1930's'.
Just as there is no such thing as a 'liberal' or a 'conservative' Catholic. You are, or you aren't.
American, or Western , or European common practice, perhaps.
