"Al Gore, father of 4, wants to fight global warming with
Rick, June 23, 2011
At a womens conference in New York City,
environmentalist and former vice president Al Gore suggested
population control as one weapon of choice against global
You have to educate girls and empower women, and thats
the most powerful leveraging factor. And when that happens,
then the population begins to stabilize and societies begin
to make better choices and more balanced choices, said Al
Gore at the Games for Change Festival in NYC on Monday, June
Better choices, more balanced choices, as long as those
choices line up with Gores corrupt world view.
And anyone want to guess what Al Gore is talking about here?
Here, let me help. The subject is population control. The
buzzwords are choice and womens empowerment. Seems
The city of Manchester, NH is where the Presidential elections begin every four years. The city gets it's drinking water from Lake Massabesic, a natural lake, about four miles from main street.
In 1961-65 my father drove us kids to Lake Massabesic to get water for our tropical fish. The city had soft water then. Tropical fish prefer soft water.
We lived in the woods. Twelve miles out of town we were in the woods -coons, porcupines, deer, an occasional moose or stray sheep, and plenty of ruff grouse drumming on logs with their wings. A rural community.
Now, the lake's water is no longer soft due to "acid rain". Goldfish like hard water. Tropical fish prefer soft water. We had an artesian well -hard water. Soft water doesn't leave a ring in the bathtub. Hard water does.
I would guess that most greenhouse gas emissions are caused
by automobiles, and power plants, and meat eating instead of
eating vegetables, etc.
So, if you lived in the woods and rode a horse, and didn't
have utilities hooked to your house, and shot an animal now
and then for food, you wouldn't be producing very much CO2.
The subway in San Francisco is closed right now and
will be until August 20 as I recall, so that the rails can
be retrofitted, or so I heard, to accommodate the new
subway cars that will be arriving. If true, I don't know
why the above-ground rails that the K,L, and M rails
come overground on the other side of Twin Peaks,
or the J and M rails that come above ground near
Market and Dolores, aren't being retrofitted at the
same time, but as Manuel in "Fawlty Towers" noted,
"I know nothing. I am from Barcelona." I haven't
even seen one yet but I know I'm not going to like
the new subway cars. The seats will just be along
the outer edges facing inward, so the windows will
be unusable for looking out, and people sitting
down will be much in much more immediate
proximity to humanoid carbon emissions from the
standees than before.
Some streetcars are already like that. The city
bought a Toonerville-Trolley-like streetcar that
was being phased out by Milan, and it was a big
hit (with tourists, I expect, because they look so
"charming"). So the city bought lots more of them.
If I'm waiting for a streetcar and I see that one of
those is coming, I almost always wait for the next
streetcar or take the subway, since I don't like
sitting sideways on busses. There's just no
pleasing me, I guess. I don't remember how
long it's been since I rode in one of those quaint
streetcars, but it's probably been at least two
Further down at that URL are some "normal"
streetcars, and further yet down are some
cable cars. The cable cars look a lot like the
"quaint" streetcars but I used to love to ride
those' as long as I could get a place standing
up at the very front, hanging out forward and
sideways into the outside air, which I almost
always could. The cable cars used to be
part of the normal city transit system, but
then the city started treating them separately
and jacking up the price, to $7 now I think.
So in the last 30 years I've only ridden them
on the rare occasions that relatives have
been in town. They're not for San
Franciscans anymore, sorry Tony Bennett.
They're just for tourists now. If they
disappeared, I wouldn't miss them.
If you wait for the streetcars in the long
lines at Powell and Market, you might be
converted to Christianity by some
Christian loonies often equipped with
bullhorns, blasting out their message of
eternal salvation at the poor tourists
who are just trying to have a good time
