Journalism is Dead...Long Live Internet Journalism
« on: March 17, 2015, 12:24:15 PM »
This is what passes for headline quality on Google News today. I hereby sentence the author (a term I use very loosely) to write the Kansas City Star rules for writing over and over on the blackboard until she passes out.

What a fucking hack job. Thhhhsssspttttewee! Makes me spit. Did somebody pay a second grader to cover South by Southwest?

Al Gore suggests people to adapt for clean energy systems to stop climate change

March 17, 2015 by Karla Fetrow

Austin, Texas Former Vice President, Al Gore, while speaking at the festival, felt very strongly that people must adapt practices that will avoid onset of climate change. He reiterated that people and companies who do not implement suitable strategies in this regard must be penalized.

One of his suggestions was to restrict the use of carbon and fossil fuels and chose alternate energy systems instead. He added that most of the scientific organizations and professional who run them are in constant state of denial that the environment is changing rapidly for the worse.

Al Gore controversial views on climate change

Al Gore in his presentation stated that all the events that brought about major climate changes were directly linked to unscrupulous activities of mankind. In fact he stressed on the fact that most of the existing trouble in the Middle East was the result of human created climatic changes all around.

There is very strong lobby of climate activists who have similar views. In fact, in May 2014, they wanted to take strict action against those who do not adhere to their point of view and wanted to either execute them or throw put them behind bars. There are some well known personalities who belong to this radical group and strongly believe that global warming will be responsible for death of millions of people worldwide.

This group strongly feels that death penalty is the only punishment for people directly responsible for using practices that will definitely bring about the onset of global warming in a short period. There are many activists who believe that industrial civilization must end and there should be no further growth for the next 25 years.

Presently, it is not clear if Al Gore is a party to these strong views, but, at the same time he expressed his desire to ban all those who did not follow safe environmental methods. However, he has made a name for himself as an anti global warming enthusiast.

What the FUCK is an anti global warming enthusiast?

It's just like an anti crap writing enthusiast. Only a little different.
