Al Gore's Big Announcement
Al Gore Has Another Warning for Us
By Fred Gielow. Posted here for November 16, 2015.
Attendees, mostly media people, filled the George Soros Auditorium at the London School of Economics (where Mr. Soros received his bachelor of science degree in philosophy and PhD in philosophy).
Expectations were high, as Mr. Al Gore was scheduled to deliver a major environmental address at 1:30 p.m. A few minutes before 2:00 a somewhat plump Mr. Gore strolled onto the stage and took his place behind the podium. He looked out into the audience and into the dozens of TV cameras pointed at him, he adjusted the papers before him, tapped one of the microphones, and cleared his throat. The auditorium lights dimmed, but the TV lights lit up the one-time vice president like a movie star.
"Ladies and gentlemen," he began, "I have a very significant and vitally important announcement. But before I get to it, I need to provide some background information.
"As we all know, our planet revolves around its axis as it orbits the sun. A complete orbit around the sun takes about one year. One complete revolution of Earth takes about one day. What some of you may not know is that the axis of the Earth is tilted somewhat relative to the plane of its orbit, and more significantly, that tilt varies. Usually the variation is between 22.1 and 24.5 degrees. As long as the tilt stays between these two values, all is well for life on the planet.
"Now I must get to the real danger we face. Conclusive scientific studies and numerous computer simulations show that the tilt wobble -- 22.1 to 24.5 degrees -- is showing signs of diverging from those bounds. This is a desperately serious development. More extreme tilts will radically impact our climate and if not corrected will be threatening to all advanced forms of life on Earth. As the tilt angle increases, it will be harder and harder for fragile, warm-blooded land-based life to survive.
"The wobble of the Earth is affected by the center of gravity of the Earth. It's sort of like a ceiling fan. If the blades aren't balanced just right, the fan becomes unstable and its motion fluctuates. If one of the blades is actually removed, the fan will thrash about out of control and perhaps self destruct.
"That's the problem we face right now. As people and goods are moved about the planet, the result is a constantly changing center of gravity. Natural laws of physics respond to these movements and the planet's tilt is affected.
"Ladies and gentlemen, there is only one way to fix this desperate problem. We must drastically limit the movement of people and goods. Only when the center of gravity of Earth becomes stable will the tilt normalize and return to its historic bounds of 22.1 to 24.5 degrees.
"Therefore, I am calling upon the United Nations to issue an immediate proclamation to end 95 percent of all travel in the world, and that's travel of not just people, but goods as well. Every human being must be restricted to travel no further than ten miles from his or her current place of residence. Foods and materials of all kinds must be restricted to travel no more than 45 miles from their point of origin to their point of use.
"Yes, the sacrifices we must endure will bring about a wrenching transformation of society, but we have no choice. If we don't take immediate action, life on the planet will end. Tilt wobble is settled science. Google it. There's no debate. Government must enforce restrictions of movement, Draconian restrictions of movement. For the sake of the future of humanity, we must act and we must act now!"
Mr. Gore looked up from his notes, frowned, then slowly walked off stage. His limousine was waiting for him as he exited the auditorium.
Do you believe in global tilt wobble?
Do you believe it's caused by human beings?
Do you believe the made-up story (above) about Al Gore's warnings of global tilt wobble?
Do you believe in global warming?
Do you believe it's caused by human beings?

January 23, 2016: Look at the article I just found on the Internet. It was written about a month after I posted the above story. Amazing! Could Emily J. Gertz have stolen my idea?
No, I don't think so. These people can come up with silly ideas on their own.
