Al Gore Wants to Ban Cars in Cities

If you live in a major city and own a car, you might not be able to keep your car in the city, or you might have to give up your car all togeth­er. You see, for­mer Vice Pres­i­dent Al Gore and his cur­rent part­ner in crime, for­mer Mex­i­can Pres­i­dent Felipe Calderon, are look­ing to obtain $90 tril­lion dol­lars in order to ban cars from all major cities. Gore and Calderon, pre­sent­ing a report from the Glob­al Com­mis­sion on the Econ­o­my & Cli­mate (GCEC) at the World Eco­nom­ic Forum in Davos, Switzer­land, argued that mak­ing cities more com­pact, whol­ly reliant on pub­lic trans­porta­tion, and “more cli­mate friend­ly” is the only way to ensure that cities do not con­tribute to glob­al warm­ing.

Remem­ber that our nation­al debt is $18 tril­lion dol­lars at this point in time and con­tin­u­al­ly ris­ing. Grant­ed that $90 tril­lion is world­wide; how­ev­er, Gore and Calderon are telling Amer­i­cans their tax dol­lars should be spent to ban their own cars from cities.

Accord­ing to Gore and Calderon, cities will spend a total of $90 tril­lion dol­lars upgrad­ing in the upcom­ing decades. They con­tend this mon­ey should be spent on mak­ing cities “more com­pact, bet­ter con­nect­ed with strong mass tran­sit,” as the GCEC report sug­gests, since “such cities are more pro­duc­tive, social­ly inclu­sive, resilient, clean­er, qui­eter, and safer.” No sur­prise that the GCEC report indi­cat­ed that “70% of the world’s ener­gy use and green­house gas emis­sions come from cities.”

Wasn’t it those nasty, coal-pow­ered, elec­tric­i­ty-pro­duc­ing plants that were the biggest cul­prits in gum­ming up the air with green­house gas emis­sions? Wasn’t there also some men­tion of wood burn­ing stoves cre­at­ing “unsa­vory” air for the pop­u­lace? And didn’t Al Gore at one time claim the arc­tic ice caps would be gone by now because of glob­al warming/climate change?

It seems that with these “glob­al warming/climate change” activists it flip flops dai­ly as to what they indi­cate is caus­ing this phe­nom­e­non – a phe­nom­e­non which has not been sci­en­tif­i­cal­ly proven using the Sci­en­tif­ic Method. What doesn’t change is the mantra that “humans have caused all of this.” Now, the slight shift is how humans have devel­oped their cities that is pump­ing out the green­house gas­es.

It has been indi­cat­ed pre­vi­ous­ly that cow farts and belch­es pro­duce more “green­house gas” than humans. But, that is just one species. There are all sorts of ani­mals that fart and belch – dogs, cats, hors­es, pigs, giraffes, wolves, buf­fa­lo, etc. It has also been report­ed that car­bon diox­ide makes up less than 1% of 1% of the gas­es in the atmos­phere and methane com­pris­ing less than that. Plants need car­bon diox­ide for sur­vival. Peo­ple exhale car­bon diox­ide. Water vapor is more preva­lent in the atmos­phere than either car­bon diox­ide or methane.

Calderon stat­ed, “The mis­take we made in Mex­i­co was to let cities devel­op how­ev­er they want, and it’s a mess.”

In oth­er words, local gov­ern­ment has not func­tioned prop­er­ly in how it han­dles city devel­op­ment and growth, so it needs to be man­aged more cen­tral­ly. It’s the old mantra of “peo­ple can­not self-gov­ern” or “local gov­ern­ment can­not be trust­ed.” Calderon needs to shut his pie hole, as Mex­i­co is a mess, not because of “cities devel­op­ing how­ev­er they want,” but because the cen­tral gov­ern­ment, as well as many local gov­ern­ments, are so cor­rupt you’d have to remove every sin­gle gov­ern­ment offi­cial in Mex­i­co to rid it of cor­rup­tion. Even at that, there is no guar­an­tee you’d get them all as cor­rup­tion, law­less­ness, and crim­i­nal­i­ty seem the norm rather than the excep­tion in that nation’s gov­ern­ment.

Inter­est­ing­ly enough, these indi­vid­u­als, who were at this “forum” cham­pi­oning tak­ing away the indi­vid­ual right to own a car, arrived in pri­vate jets – 1,700 of them to be exact. Not sur­pris­ing­ly, the Swiss mil­i­tary “had to open an air base for the pri­vate jets to land” the air traf­fic was so heavy. Last year, con­fer­ence goers were shut­tled in by 200 heli­copters. Now, why did not these “cli­mate con­cerned” indi­vid­u­als use pub­lic trans­porta­tion? Hyp­ocrites all of them would be if “glob­al warming/climate change” were real.

If cli­mate change/global warm­ing were actu­al­ly real and all sci­en­tists agreed it was and humans were caus­ing it, wouldn’t you think an advo­cate of decreas­ing green­house gas emis­sions would be set­ting the exam­ple? That would make sense; but, this isn’t about “sense.” It’s about what those in pow­er can get oth­ers to believe in order to give up more indi­vid­ual rights and lib­er­ties, accept Agen­da 21, and sub­mit to total­i­tar­i­an con­trol.

Gore is so intent on this lat­est hair-brained cause of “cli­mate change” he is col­lab­o­rat­ing with pop star Phar­rell Williams to stage a mas­sive con­cert called “Live Earth” in six cities across the world, no less, to raise aware­ness of cli­mate change/global warm­ing. Won­der how many pri­vate jets, heli­copters, and 18 wheel trucks it will take to put on these con­certs in these cities? How much trash will these con­certs gen­er­ate that has to be cart­ed away? Think of all the resources it takes to gen­er­ate lights, music, and sound. Oh, but that doesn’t count since it’s for the cause of push­ing the cli­mate change agen­da.

All of this comes at a time to gar­ner sup­port for an inter­na­tion­al cli­mate treaty ahead of the Unit­ed Nations sum­mit in Paris. If the Unit­ed Nations is involved in any type of “inter­na­tion­al” cli­mate treaty, you can bet it falls along the lines of their “small arms” treaty where rights have to be relin­quished “for the good of the col­lec­tive.”

Coal-pow­ered elec­tri­cal pro­duc­ing plants are on the chop­ping block because of the farce of glob­al warming/climate change. Cities of the world, in par­tic­u­lar the humans in them, are now being tar­get­ed as a cause of “green­house gas” emis­sions from being “sprawl­ing” and “lim­it­ed” in mass tran­sit. It’s us humans and our nasty cars in cities that are push­ing more green­house gas­es into the atmos­phere. And, to shed light on this “prob­lem,” Gore and his pun­dits arrived in pri­vate jets to a con­fer­ence in the city of Davos and now, are going to increase the green­house gas emis­sions in six oth­er cities by hold­ing a con­cert. Their log­ic can give one a headache.

What is just as inter­est­ing as where these “con­fer­ences” and “forums” are held is where they aren’t. No con­fer­ence like this is held in Rus­sia, Chi­na, North Korea, or Cuba. No, these con­fer­ences are held in West­ern nations instead of com­mu­nist-ruled ones. When look­ing at their agen­da, it makes sense. Nations ruled under com­mu­nism or some sem­blance of it have already lim­it­ed the rights of their cit­i­zens. There is no need to bring the farce of glob­al warming/climate change to those nations since those peo­ple do not need to be “wooed” away from free­dom and lib­er­ty, as their lead­ers have already tak­en those away. The gov­ern­ments in those coun­tries owns the util­i­ties and pow­er plants; some, even all the prop­er­ty. It is the free nations of the world that must be con­vinced to relin­quish their rights.

Once the free world agrees to relin­quish some rights will­ing­ly, it becomes eas­i­er to get them to relin­quish more and more until they will freely accept a total­i­tar­i­an rule. Large num­bers of peo­ple con­cen­trat­ed in small areas devoid of inde­pen­dent, indi­vid­ual trans­porta­tion are more eas­i­ly con­trolled; they won’t be able to leave on their own voli­tion. Few­er local gov­ern­ments are eas­i­er to con­trol and main­tain sub­mis­sive to the larg­er cen­tral con­trol­ling pow­er than the num­ber of munic­i­pal­i­ties that exist now. The peo­ple can be bet­ter sur­veilled and mon­i­tored when they are con­cen­trat­ed into small­er areas and their inde­pen­dent move­ment cur­tailed. Not only that, col­lec­tive “indoc­tri­na­tion” occurs and takes hold where those who exer­cise inde­pen­dent thought and action becomes dan­ger­ous to the sur­vival of the group.

Col­lec­tive indoc­tri­na­tion can be so over­whelm­ing that indi­vid­u­als might begin to believe it best if they walked into the gas cham­bers in order to stem green­house gas emis­sions caused by humans or to pre­serve the “lim­it­ed” resources avail­able to a pre-select­ed group of peo­ple should some­one decide more is need­ed. While many may scoff at this, are we not already wit­ness to the idea of de-pop­u­la­tion by select elit­ists for the “wel­fare of the world?” Unfor­tu­nate­ly, brain­wash­ing can be so strong and exten­sive that some peo­ple will actu­al­ly buy the idea of de-pop­u­la­tion and will­ing­ly par­tic­i­pate. Oth­ers will go along until they are the ones select­ed for de-pop­u­la­tion. Aren’t some peo­ple believ­ing in “glob­al warming/climate change” even after the UN admit­ted its com­put­er mod­els were false and oth­er sci­en­tif­ic data dis­pute it and is at best incon­clu­sive?

Are we not already expe­ri­enc­ing the ero­sion of free­dom and lib­er­ty at the hands of gov­ern­ment for one rea­son or anoth­er? Look at the EPA, DHS, NSA, and oth­er gov­ern­ment agen­cies. Are we not wit­ness­ing indi­vid­u­als cry­ing for “more gov­ern­ment con­trol” that leads to ero­sion of rights? Isn’t the mantra of the sheep, “if you aren’t doing any­thing wrong, you have noth­ing to wor­ry about?”

This is noth­ing more than Gore, Calderon, and these con­fer­ence atten­dees advo­cat­ing for Agen­da 21.

Here’s a fab­u­lous idea for the “cli­mate change” believ­er, Al Gore, his part­ner in crime, Calderon, and all those that attend­ed the con­fer­ence in Davos arriv­ing by pri­vate jet – Stick a cork in both ends.
