“Put a cork in it, Al!”

That’s the message students are sending Al Gore, radical climate campaigners and assorted other bohemians, grant-seekers and profiteers cashing in on the global warming craze.

Al Gore is calling on folks to make September 14th a day of climate action through a series of propaganda videos he will be broadcasting worldwide. CFACT calls for a day of genuine “climate realism” instead. CFACT Collegians are responding with a bit of online levity.

CFACT’s Methane Madness game trains online players to help “Pal Gore” control the climate by corking cows and watching them float away. Methane is more potent than CO2 as a greenhouse gas but less than 1% of atmospheric greenhouse gases come from cattle. Even so, radical climate campaigners call for shutting down our cattle and dairy industries along with much of the rest our economy. They’d like all of us to go vegan.

However, climate science IS NOT SETTLED. Computer models are not all in agreement and many scientific observations don’t fit many models. Climategate is just the tip of the iceberg as more and more scientists find the courage to publicize their contrary analysis -that man’s impact on climate and atmosphere is dwarfed by that of nature’s every day. Now, due to the current economic crisis many citizens are finally learning that alternative energy is extremely inefficient and that economies in crisis can’t afford the waste -while carbon profiteers rake in tax dollars for environmental policies that actually do nothing to affect the climate.

WHOA! All these dreary, inconvenient facts! Gore won’t enjoy these. As Scarlett O’Hara said, “I can’t think about that right now. If I do, I’ll go crazy. I’ll think about that tomorrow.”

Back to the game!

If online gamer’s succeed in corking all the cows, Methane Madness players can move on to further levels and put a cork in Gore and company’s hot air. Don’t worry, CFACT’s always been about free speech. Corks come out. Gore and his celebrity buddies can go right back to spewing their hot air. It will take cold facts for realism to triumph over alarmism on climate. CFACT wouldn’t have it any other way.

Al Gore and his policies are a huge drain on the U.S. economy. “Jobs just aren’t waiting for us when we graduate the way they used to,” said Methane Madness player Josh Smith a student at University of Wisconsin. “Al Gore preaches we should live with less, while he flies from mansion to mansion. I don’t even know how I’m going to pay my student loans. Put a cork in it, Al!”
