Despite a request that the event be closed to the news media, reporter Anton Caputo managed to be there to cover former vice president Al Gore. “There” was San Antonio as Gore delivered his message of how to fight global warming to attendees at the American Institute of Architects’ 2007 national convention and design exposition Saturday.
The headline of this post mimics the headline that stood atop Caputo’s post-event article written for his employer, the San Antonio Express-News. At the same time, it captures the essence of what Bob McCarty Writes readers already know about the star of an inconvenient truth, the Academy Award-winning documentary about global warming: He fancies himself as a leader of a global warming theology movement that stands firm in its mantra, “The Inconvenient Truth Shall Set You Free!”
On March 11, I broke the story about the existence of The Warmin’ Church, a cult-like group that relies upon the teachings of Rev. Al Gore in a post, Environmentalism a Religion, Gore Its Leader. As I uncovered more information through painstaking research and a lot of legwork, I revealed in a March 14 post that Reverend Gore — a prolific author in his own right — had written The Book of Warmin’ to serve as the cult’s primary tool for teaching Warmin’ Church Wishionaries and for helping grow the cult’s global warming ministry.
