    Former Vice President Al Gore, the world's loudest voice on global warming, on Wednesday demanded that carbon polluters pay for damages he said are caused by climate change, including storms, fires and rising seas.

    "The cost of carbon pollution is something we've all been living with and paying for years while the fossil fuel industry just keeps making record profits," said Gore at a global warming summit he's hosting in Chicago.

    "It's time now to make the polluters pay for the damage they cause in super storms, wildfires, and rising seas, among other costs of carbon pollution, and put a price on carbon," he added.

    Gore is hosting 1,500 "climate leaders" at his convention run by his group "The Climate Reality Project." It is also a training session for the 1,500 who are learning how to convince the nation that the threat from global warming is real.

    Time for Hootie the retarded owl to swoop in and explain these things again.
    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
    21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 NASB

    Would that include people who travel by private jets, own ridiculously large homes and sell their TV networks to oil producers?

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
