Reading between the lines

Al Gore, of the species moonbaticus extremist, gave a speech in Canada on March 22. Selectively cherrypicking items from the article below I note the following:

  • The President of the University was booed as he began to give an honorary degree to Al Gore.
  • Al Gore appeared angry, to the point of shaking his fists to the audience.
  • Perhaps sensing the mood of the audience, the question and answer period with Gore was cancelled.
  • His presentation was halted at least twice as opponents to his agenda began to shout out. The word, “heckled” doesn’t appear to be part of the article writers vocabulary.
  • He was called a liar and a villain, and some heckled, “What about your swimming pools?”
  • This led Gore to joke, “I don’t even know if you guys are left- or right-wing”. No Al, it’s a hypocrisy thing.
  • The other speaker on the same topic was treated to “numerous bouts of applause from a rather enthusiastic audience.”

Full text of article:
MONTREAL (CUP) – Concordia president Claude Lajeunesse was booed as he took the stage to give Al Gore an honorary doctorate from the university on March 22.
The brainchild of Concordia Student Union president Khaleed Juma, the doctorate was presented while the crowd, present to listen to speeches from Gore and David Suzuki, filed out the exits after the question and answer period with Gore was cancelled.
The talk took place in the cadre of Less Talk, More Action: A Youth Action Summit on Climate Change, organized by Youth Action Montreal members and Concordia University students Peter Schiefke and Mohamed Shuriye.
Gore and Suzuki’s message was clear: The world is in imminent danger if we continue our current habits and don’t change towards a more eco-friendly society.
The former U.S. vice-president’s speech was effectively his Academy Award-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth with updated statistics, and presented by an angrier, fist-shaking Gore.
His presentation was halted at least twice as opponents to his agenda began to shout out.
They called him a liar and a villain, and screamed, “What about your swimming pools?” in regards to recent allegations that the monthly electricity bill of Gore’s estate rivalled a year’s bill for the average American home.
This led Gore to joke, “I don’t even know if you guys are left- or right-wing”.
Suzuki also made a 45-minute speech on the topic du jour. The speech was punctuated by numerous bouts of applause from a rather enthusiastic audience.
He espoused that the media should play a more central role in the way it informs the public, saying, “Over half of all Nobel Prize winners are telling us we could have as little as 10 years to avoid a catastrophe and this is pronounced by our media as ‘not newsworthy’.

    Gore’s presentation was halted at least twice, as opponents to his agenda began to shout out? I wonder why these right-wing nuts are so affraid of Gore.

    It’s what happens when you try and do what is best for the world instead of what is convenient for the self.

    […] A “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy” Al? Global warming denier group? Is this an attempt, using the word “denier” to equate those concerned with the junk science you promulgate with those who deny the holocaust that killed millions? What an arrogant, egotistical, loathsome creature you have become, Al Gore. Don’t think for one minute that those of us with two or more brain cells believe for one minute that this plan, “has been in the works for a long time”.  Right. It didn’t possibly happen to have anything to do with your appearance in Canada on March 22nd of this year when you were heckled and booed to shouts of, “What about your swimming pools?” […]
