Global Warming: The Movie! (Pt. 2)
Posted by Jon Henke

Instapundit comments on the movie "The Day After Tomorrow"....

MY SISTER SAW THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW today, and summarizes it thusly: "The world's better off without people, with lots of special effects." [...]
And David Edelstein observes:
The sad part is that Emmerich really thinks he's making a political statement, and he and his producers and actors are making the rounds blabbing about the movie's message to the world. . . . Meanwhile, global-warming experts I know are already girding themselves for a major PR setback, as everyone involved in this catastrophe becomes a laughingstock. [...] Al Gore stepped right into this one, didn't he?
Once again, the Gore endorsement looks like the kiss of death.
Ok, leaving aside the silly science of this movie, and leaving aside the fact that, you know, it's a movie.....

Leaving aside all of that...what in the world was Al Gore thinking when he stood behind a movie based on a book by Art Bell and Whitley Strieber?!?!?!?!

Art Bell. The longtime (now former) host of Coast to Coast AM. (AKA: Ghost to Ghost AM) That Art Bell.

If that doesn't give you an idea who he is, take a look at the Coast to Coast AM homepage to get an idea of where he's coming from. Copied directly from the site...

One caller said she lived in a house where underwear, glasses and cups would mysteriously disappear. She believes her daughter's invisible "friend" is responsible...
William Bramley (email) shared his hypothesis that extraterrestrial visitors have conspired to dominate mankind through secret societies and religions...
The Iranian Incident
Tornado Cloud
Monster Lemon
Eyes of Mothman
Venice UFO
Cow on Mars
You get the idea. Ghosts, UFOs, psychics, moonbats and.....well, Al Gore. But I repeat myself.

My wife dragged me to this movie (we were exceptionally bored that day) as she wanted to see the special effects.

To me it was a typical liberal movie with typical liberal media in it.

Tv reporter covering the MASSIVE tornadoes ripping LA apart. Picture 6 or more giant tornadoes going through skyscrapers as if they were a kid pulling apart a building made of leggos. Cars flying everywhere, entire buildings and houses getting demolished and that sick feeling that quite a few insurance companies are going bankrupt as the film crew gets it all on tape (and plays it back for the audience at home).

So the news anchor asks the guy in the helicopter "Do you think anyone is hurt?"
