Al Gore of global warming fame says "new iPhones" are in store for next month

Al Gore of global warming fame says
Yes, it's the superimposing figure of former Vice President Al Gore talking at a summit in South Africa, who had said “Not to mention the new iPhones coming out next month. That was a plug”.

Now what is the man, who invented global warming and the Internet, doing disclosing such precious gems of proprietary information we don't know, but the guy does sit on the Apple board of directors, and South Africa is far enough that he likely didn't care if anyone noticed. 

One attendee of the Discovery Invest Leadership Summit, Toby Shapshak, noticed, however, and relayed his words to Associated Press.

It might have been a slip of the tongue or inadvertent error, or he simply meant "the new iPhone's coming next month", but that shouldn't prevent anyone from the blogosphere to dip again in the frenzy over having multiple iPhones announced on October 4 by Tim Cook.

A) Al Gore didn't invent global warming he just put a spotlight on it. It does exist, you'd have to be in denial to ignore the copious scientific evidence by now. and B) iPhone 5, 4 and 4S or Cloudphone, it doesn't matter. Whatever Apple finally unveils if it doesn't have an LTE radio it will be a Bugatti without any tires.

A). I don't believe in global warming. It doesn't exist. Sure there might be some things humans are doing that is not good for the enivornment, but caliming there is global warming is going too far. Here in sweden, the last 2 winters have been some of the coldest winters we have had for a long time (-20/25 degrees celcius = about -13 farenheit in Stockholm in November last year, so no global warming here.) B) bugatti ? the iphone won't be a bugatti at all, even with LTE.

A) "Climate change" tends to be the preferred term as not everywhere is actually warming. There really is no debate that it exist (except amongst the uneducated masses). The debate is the cause (humans or natural earth cycle). B) Yeah...not Bugatti, maybe an Audi.

B) maybe the iphone should be compared to a Lada ?

No, the iphone is even worse than a piece of scrap metal. I'm never buying another iphone again.

climate change is ALWAYS happening, that is a misnomer. The idea that humans are the driving factor in it is the dispute, and all the REAL evidence says NO. The driving force is the sun first and foremost. All the carbon emissions that people are worried about are actually by products given at the end of the warming cycle, not something that creates it. The IPCC has been proven to fake evidence and lie over and over again, and that is where 95% of Al Gore's "irrefutable" evidence comes from. Al gore also has private jets, a 11k mansion that uses more electricity than the town its closest to, and has made nearly a billion dollars on climate change "carbon trading" through his company that he just happens to mention through his presentations.

Man made global warming is a sham. It is a pyramid scheme. If it was real, you wouldnt see politicians grandstanding and giving ideas like cap n tax, trying to make international governments, or ending everything with a new tax they can siphon from... they would come out with real ideas from the scientific community, which is not whats happening. What you have is a bunch of big government beaurocrats trying to guilt the worlds population into creating a "world" government and guilting them into paying more taxes. Do we need to watch our pollution, deforestation, and a dozen other things? Absolutely. Is man made global warming the main cause of global warming? absolutely not.

remixfa, at least you know that these so called envirnoment issues, are just fake : ) Just wish you could realize the same regarding a certain theory... but i'm not going to start discussing this again, as proto said it is of topic.

Someone's been visiting a little too often. ;) That you would be bold enough to claim to have the answer to the question you are posing here is a little...disconcerting. Your question, though, is a valid one, and one that likely, given the limited scope of human knowledge/experience, will not be definitively answered any time soon.

Dude get some education, due the the odd rotation of the earth on it's axis, a 'wobble' effect acts on the rotation around the sun and creates a temorary eliptical orbit, this creates on a 20,000 year , 40,000 yr and 100,000 year climate changes. These natural repetively occuring changes cause ice ages and even turn the Sahara desert into a tropical wetland. Global warming as religion and God are ways humans have chosen to deal with what was unknown and felt a need to have an explanation for. Science is the cure to those diseases.

I know that these so called envirnoment issues are fake and myths. Man has not made them, it is just whats is happening naturally on earth. When it comes to God, well it is a fact that the evolutionist theory is just as much fake as the global warming theory.

People don't seem to know the concept of ''Creation'' really means. If there was creation obviously there was a ''Creator'', nothing comes out of the blue. ''Law of cause and effect'', '' Action-Reation''. Like it or not there is a creator. ''The beginning of wisdom is the admission of one's ignorance.''

Isn't the fact that you like technology against your religious views? After all, science is considered exactly the opposite of religion. And how do you explain the use of fossil fuels. You can't deny that they are main source of CFC's which are consequential in global warming. You people need to read up more.

the major causes of global warming are the sun's hot and cold periods, the earth's distance from the sun, technotic activity in the earth, water vapor, and to a minor extent methane gas. Carbon isnt really even in the picture. so unless you can convince everyone to give up hamburgers and quit farting, there isnt much we can do about methane.. the rest of it is kind of out of our hands. Global warming is a religion by self deprivating and generally left leaning individuals that think humanity is the worst thing ever created. be good to your planet. dont polute, clean up pollution that already is there, dont kill the rainforests, ect.

I see you haven't done a lot of geology. The earth is protected by a layer of atmosphere that keeps out harmful Ultraviolet rays. If these rays reach the earth's surface, they can cause skin cancer, melt ice at a tremendous rate and also exterminate plankton. The fact that they can cause skin diseases means that every land animal will slowly die unless evolution skips a step which is highly unlikely with the human species. They melt ice faster because their particles generate more heat. This will cause the sea level to rise, flooding coastal areas and leading the massive population to the center where they will anyways get skin diseases and die. The fact that they kill plankton will destabilize the entire aqua ecosystem and thus rendering the earth having no life. And all these problems are caused by using automobiles and air-coolers which release these particular CFCs into the atmosphere. If you think carbon isn't a determining factor in the equation of our planet's survival, you're sorely mistaken. The cause of global warming isn't the suns hot and cold periods or the earths distance. These are minor factors which wouldn't be a problem if we didn't use fossil fuels at such a tremendous rate. Our planet is also running out of oil due to our enormous intake leaving most of the areas infertile and with no hope of life breeding. We also mine the earths surface eroding the important top-soil to get to our minerals. This also makes the soil infertile. This means that no flora could possibly survive. With the flora and fauna dead, would you suggest some way for the earth to be habitable to anything?

geology and atmosphere are 2 different subjects. the biggest thing that keeps out/in heat? Water Vapor! when water becomes ice, it expands as it crystalizes. ever put a Coke in the freezer too long? The bulk of ice is underwater, so when it melts the net change isnt going to "sweep california away" or crap like that. There has been many periods of time where there was less ice than there was now. Again, if u could read up on the subject you claim to have knowledge of, as the ice is melting it is exposing human settlements 10s of thousands of years old that used to be there before the ice and the start of the ice age in the 1300s.

Any true social change required radicals on both sides. Want people to be nicer to their planet? You gotta have some extremist hippie granola types who won't shut the f*ck up about it. In 20 years, it'll all even out in the wash. You claims of absolute knowledge are flabbergasting. Scientists don't know, definitively, why the earth is (on average) heating up. And anyone who says otherwise is one of those aforementioned extremists. Fortunately, we need you to moderate the extremists on the other side, and in the end, the path of moderation will make the opposites irrelevant.

Science is not the opposite to religion. Evolution is. Science very much agrees with creation, all the scientific evidence proves that creation is right. So liking technology is not against me believing in God.

So you believe that evolution isn't possible and that there never existed primates which turned into humans. This also means that your "GOD" knows that we will never change and even if he magically transported us to another world, we would exploit it's resources until it dies the same way. But if "GOD" created us in his own image, then he would be as selfish and unhelpful as a majority of oru population is and therefore would place a deaf ear to our cries for help. Either way you look at it, scientific or religiously, we ourselves killed us.

Well, I do belive in Evolution as well, one of the best scientists was able to ralate Creation and Evolution and came out with a great theory. everything was created for a reason, do you think that all those planets that are floating in the in space are there for no reason, it was discover that they also act as shield to protect the Earth against asteroids and other stuff with Jupiter being the main shield. There are many other examples that at the end you just come to a conclusion that ''there is a creator''.

You speak just like a ignorant person would speak. God did create us in his image originally. Then because of mans sin, we got out of fellowship with him, and the whole world fell outside the perfect harmony it was when God originally created the earth.Man was no longer perfect. The good news however, is that with Jesus we can all have fellowship with our creator again ! : )

peter, keep your creationist lunacy out of the global warming debate. anything of merrit you might say about global warming will be overshadowed by anything you will say about creationism and u wont be taken seriously.. it might be too late.. lol

Can you explain to me why god and evoluteion are mutually exclusive? PLEASE?!

To believe there is a Creator does not make you a religious person. I listen to Heavy Metal music, and do a lot of stuff that ignorants would call against god, but I must admit and accept that there is a creator (God), because there is ''good and evil'', ''light and darkness'' ,''happiness and sadness'', and the most important ''beginning and end'' and if there was a beginning it was started by someone/something. I know that what I posted might sound kinda crazy it's just that I've been reading too much since I was a kid.

read the entire post. I explained a situation in which your CREATOR is included too. By the way, listening to heavy metal doesn't make you an athiest.

I personally don't listen to heavy metal music, but i like rock n roll, and rock. More specifically, i like the band called Petra (they play mostly rock). If you believe in God, and like rock, you MUST listen to the band called Petra.

Actually, I listen to Rock n Roll too, but my favorites bands are heavy metal: (Power metal, Black metal, Death metal,etc.). As long as they play good or have some nice lyrics I like it.

54. PeterIfromsweden

Hmm, i don't like heavy metal (if you listen at the name, black metal, and death metal, does that sound to you like it is on the dark side or the good side ?), but the band Petra is very good. I recomend you check them out if you have not already.
