Al Gore bought a beach house, which he claimed would be underwater within a decade.
Al Gore bought 20 oil wells from Exxon Mobile.
Al Jazeera bought Current TV from Al Gore, with $500 million of Oil Money.

At what point does Gore become a hypocrite?

He was always a hypocrite.

He already is. But what bearing does this have on the issue of global warming? If you're implying something against it, then this is tu quoque.

How you fix climate change

Abortion is green, and sodomy is eco friendly.

Fail to see the connections... so if Al Gore believes in AGW, then he shouldn't purchase a beach house? Mind elaborating on your opinions? Michael Bloomberg also believes in AGW, yet he is a billionaire. So is Bloomberg a hypocrite as well?

Whenever the environmentalists are willing to drop him as a leader. When they are willing to stop with the apocolypse forecasts. In other words, never.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

I believe it's retarded. Denying Global Warming, and denying it's majority man-made is like denying evolution because you can't see people evolving before your eyes.

These people pick out a nanosecond on a graph which is obviously trending upward, and has been since 1850, and because this short section is now level, or one year took a drop in X variable, they state that global warming is a myth.

What I don't understand is why. What is the benefit of denying reality?

I believe that is red herring.

Wind technology sucks and it causes an ungodly, unnatural amount of soil erosion, but that doesn't mean that alternative energy isn't important.

How many times did Edison fail before inventing the light bulb?

Watch Africa. There will be an apocalyptic event there which will cause more human suffering than WWII to the population of that continent and it will happen within our lifetimes. When all is said and done, global warming will be determined to be the main cause (though, there are plenty of others, where Africa's demise is concerned).
War is over, if you want it.

If Al really believes what he is telling people, he would not buy a house that would be destroyed within 10 years.
