A nice analysis of Al Gore and why his “leadership” of the Global Warming crowd is so damaging to that same crowd.
Once out of office, he assumed the leadership of the global green movement, steering that movement into a tsunami of defeat that, when the debris is finally cleared away, will loom as one of the greatest failures of civil society in all time.
Gore has the Midas touch in reverse; objects of great value (Nobel prizes, Oscars) turn dull and leaden at his touch. Few celebrity cause leaders have had more or better publicity than Gore has had for his climate advocacy. Hailed by the world press, lionized by the entertainment community and the Global Assemblage of the Great and the Good as incarnated in the Nobel Peace Prize committee, he has nevertheless seen the movement he led flounder from one inglorious defeat to the next. The most recent, failed global climate meeting passed almost unnoticed last week in Bonn; the world has turned its eyes away from the expiring anguish of the Copenhagen agenda.
Sweet. Here’s the rest: The Failure of Al Gore
Here’s part two: The Failure of Al Gore: Part Deux

One blog that I visited briefly, an eco-blog, was disappointed in the 10:10 video as it hardly qualified under the “working to win hearts and minds” line of thought.
As far as I can tell, none of the leaders of the green/warming movement, and that definitely includes Al Gore, are attempting to win hearts and minds. Unless it’s skeptical hearts on a platter and minds that are in thrall to our glorious and enlightened rulers/elite.
It’s more like, “Ok, STFU you mindless morons and do as we, your enlightened betters, tell you.” Sorry Al, we don’t want to sacrifice from our meager insignificant lives so that you can live like a king.
As WaPo says, it’s not really about the climate anyway. It’s about control.
More on deep green and marxism. Power and control.
