“An Inconvenient Truth” opens in Orange County


If you’re like me, you’ve been looking for a new and exciting way to muck up your weekends. Have you tried watching a depressing movie about the bleak reality of global warming? Well then, head on down to see Al Gore’s movie An Inconvenient Truth as it makes its Orange County premiere tomorrow (Friday) at the Edwards University Theater (right across the street from UCI).

And since this movie’s draw is the bleeding-heart type, the OC Dems will be hanging out registering voters. If you’re interested in helping out with that, give Mary or Marion a call and see if they’ve got any 2 hour shifts still open. 949.640.4400

    Hey, the good news is it ins’t a depressing movie! ^^_

    I’d say its more a call to action, with a little too much, but still tolerable amounts of “I am Albert Gore, and I used to be the next President of the United States of America.”

    Just saw the movie.

    I was skeptical, because I didn’t like the trailers one bit. But, I thought it was well done presentation and encourage all to see it.

    That is entirely too inconvenient for me to think about right now.

    Al Gore and the Great Glass in the Sky

    This very important message was written with the intent that it would be passed around, forwarded to other recipients, generating a worldwide revolution into believing in the reality that there is:
    1) Glass in the sky,
    2) The fact that the whole universe is inverted and fits within the walls of a hollow, inverted earth, where earth is just a shell in which we live on the inside surface, and
    3) God and heaven are physically situated up in the middle of this inverted world, and once this reality becomes prevalent, the whole world will be filled with the knowledge of the LORD as prophesied by Habakkuk.

    Steven Joseph Christopher

    Most Christian Fundamentals don’t believe in global warming, but even liberals fail to understand why it’s happening.

    With the debut of Al Gore’s film, “An Inconvenient Truth”, I bring you an even more inconvenient truth to swallow….

    How silly of Mr. Gore…
    To actually propose such an idea, that the earth is warming.and to use the old greenhouse analogy, as if there were a gigantic bubble of glass covering the entire globe.

    No sir, the only way I would ever believe him (that there is global warming) is if, and only if he could actually PROVE beyond any shadow of any doubt, that there is actually real glass up in the sky.

    Ha-ha, but he’d have an uphill battle. Let me tell you.

    I mean first off, he’d have to prove that rainbows were a result of the white light from the sun, filtering through a glass plane and projecting onto cloud vapors in the air.

    He’d have to debunk the accepted explanation that there are billions and billions of tiny raindrops in the air, which individually produce the complete spectrum of colors. And the notion that these raindrops are not SMART raindrops, which cannot synchronously align themselves together to form a perfectly arced bow. – How absurd. We all know that these drops are smart.

    I mean these intelligent raindrops are everywhere, even in garden hose spray and water bottle mist.

    He’d have to deduct that these raindrops did not have choreographic intellect and that the real reason the rainbows formed on these surfaces were because the sunlight was already filtered by the glass way up high at the top of the sky.

    He’d have to compare these surface or vapors, as merely reflective projection screens.

    Well, come to think of it, it DOES makes sense, kind of.

    He’d also have to attribute all the aurora phenomena to glass in the sky. You know, the beautiful imagery in the northern and southern polar regions. He’d have to say that the electrons from the sun were hitting the glass and causing it to glow, just like a TV screen glows when electrons hit the phosphorus coated glass. He’d also have to prove that there was phosphorus in the atmosphere. Oh, wait a minute, there is, and that’s how scientists explain why auroras happen, they even use the glass TV screen as an analogy.

    Ok, but he’d have a hard time explaining ham radio waves if there were glass in the sky. I mean how are the short waves going to bounce off the ionosphere if there was a layer of glass in the sky?

    Err, wait a minute. Actually ham radio waves reaching the other side of earth ARE compared to waves bouncing off the ionosphere as if it were a sheet of glass. Glass deflects radio waves.

    Ok, ok, now if there was really glass up in the sky then how could he explain where tektites came from. If you all don’t know what tektites are, they are little globules of almost pure silica (glass). They are found in strewn fields in Australia, Georgia and a few other isolated regions of the world. To this day no scientist has conclusively, without any shadow of any doubt, proven their true origin.some say terrestrial, a result of a meteorite slamming into the ground and penetrating deep into the sedimentary layers of the earth with high velocity and extremely high temperature, and causing “instant” liquefying of sedimentary glass (obsidian) and squirting this glass out from beneath the ground and propelling it WAY high up into the air.miles high. All the while cooling off as it makes it decent to the ground. Yeah right.(physics deem this stunt truly impossible)…some say extra-terrestrial.. maybe from the moon or a planet far, far away. But the chances of the moon propelling a few tektites earth’s way are very slim, as well as having ZERO similarities to moon rock, as well as the tektite have NO cosmic rays exposure. (This would mean that it is not from space)

    No, Al Gore would have to say something like a meteor skidded across the glass up in the sky and caused it to get really hot and melt and drop down globules.well I guess this wouldn’t be as hard an explanation as I originally thought.

    Okay, but big Al would have to explain why fusion crust (the glass coating on meteorites) was not possible to create on terrestrial rock by heating it to the same temperature as the meteor entering the atmosphere.. uh.wait a minute, I guess WE’D have to explain this, not Al. Why would glass form on the meterorite ONLY if it came through the atmosphere and not by just heating one up on the ground?

    All right, what about a comet’s tail. He’d have to trash the solar wind explanation in lieu of his glass idea. He’d have to say that the tail of the comet was curved and always facing the opposite of the sun because of the optical distortion effect called “coma aberration”, caused only by light filtering through a bowed glass lens, actually NAMED for the similarity of the comet’s tail.

    Ugh… I guess WE’RE in the hot seat on this one too.

    All right, all right, I’m not down for the count yet.

    Ozone

    Let the OZONE man himself; prove that there is glass up in the sky by explaining how ozone is present in the atmosphere, if there is glass up in the sky.

    HEE – HEE I can SMELL my victory now!

    Oh – no, wait a minute. Ozone generators and air ionizers (only the ones with glass plates) produce ozone and cause it to smell like the fresh scent after a thunderstorm. So the glass screening the ultraviolet light causes ozone. So we can actually SMELL the glass in the sky.

    RATZ!

    Ok, but Al, come on really, how would the Space Shuttle and all those satellites have penetrated this fictitious glass barrier?

    I mean you’d have to penetrate this glass by easing into it, you know at a really acute angle and you’d have to go really, really fast to get enough temperature to melt the glass. Also, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to coat all the tiles with a special dichroic glass that would have very little thermal conductivity and have it powdery, like sand paper, creating more friction..

    DARN! He got me again, that’s EXACTLY what is on the shuttle’s tiles, they call it FRIT.

    All right, if there really WAS glass in the sky, why don’t we see a reflection of the earth up in the sky? I mean you’d have to say that there was some kind of non-reflective material coating the glass – like a non-transparent sheet of ice, one that is translucent, blocking a good potion of the sunlight from entering.

    But, come to think of it that would explain all the mysterious huge chunks of ice that have fallen to the ground. Most recently in Oakland, CA this April.

    Ok, what about stellar spectroscopy? RATZ, glass would explain it better.

    What about red shift only visible from beneath earth’s atmosphere – DARN, glass explains it better.

    What about halos, circumzenith arcs, glories, superior mirages, fata morganas????

    SHOOT! Glass in the sky explains ALL these things perfectly.

    Uh moderators!

    Never mind, can I erase my posting here? I’m new here and don’t want to be ridiculed by the fact that AL Gore beat me in proving that there is glass up in the sky. And also proving that there is global warming.

    I mean we all know why he can’t be president..

    …because of the glass ceiling.

    (EVEN CHILDREN KNOW THIS IS WHY THERE ARE RAINBOWS IN THE SKY)

    If you fill a glass with ice and water and let the ice melt, does the water level rise? No. Dumbasses.

  9. June 3, 2006 at 7:59 am

    Hey 7:49,

    If you take a glass of water and have a piece of ice that is miles high floating on the top of it, and let it melt, does the water rise?

    If you live anywere near a coastline it’s worth thinking about. If you drive on any roads/freeways that also happen to be built near sea level it’s worth taking personal action about. So if you’re too lazy to spread the bad word, at least take the responsibility to do SOMETHING in your personal life about global warming.

    the movie is an excellant and intelligent call to action for all of us. I think it is an incredible thing to have a former presidential candidate actually seem sincere and smart, I have gotten so used to George Bush and his complete lack of understanding and inability to even grasp that we are in deep shit. As far as the glass in the sky bullshit, get a clue, this isn’t some game.

  12. June 3, 2006 at 2:01 pm

    OK.. I saw the film last night down in Irvine. There are a few facts I know: It’s barely June and we’re having August weather. People all over the world are hearing from their weather gurus to expect a long, hot summer. The world is getting hotter. The oceans are not going to have to get much warmer to have a severe impact on the ice shelves of the arctic and anarctic. There will be devastating consequences when it happens.

    What I don’t know is how someone like SJC can continue to keep his head in the sand about this issue. He must not live south of Indianapolis Ave. in HB, because all of that will be under water one day unless he and those like him, the ones who like to hide behind the bible, come to their senses.

    I’m going to do the things I can to stop this insanity. Eat way less meat, be way smarter about how and when I use my car, keep recycling, etc.

    This movie was inspiring, shocking, riveting, jaw-dropping, educational, and a must-see for every inhabitant of Earth. It has motivated me to be more ecologically mindful of our precious planet and to get involved with global-warming activities. It’s about time this information is brought to public attention.

    To SJC….you must have been on something while watching this movie..if in fact you really did see the movie….too bad you can’t use your hyperactive, but closed mind on something constructive to help change what is happeninging to our world.

  16. June 3, 2006 at 9:16 pm

    Eye opening movie. Coming out of the movie, I ran into friends who are also raging liberals, and it seemed that everyone in the audience were liberal as well. Is Al just preaching to the choir? We have to spread his word to everyone we can.

  17. June 3, 2006 at 9:24 pm

    Cherle…good point. I think it is the same thing we see with Michael Moore’s documentaries. The people that are oblivious to these truths are the same people that will dismiss Gore as a liberal nut.

    If only Rush Limbaugh or Bill O’Riley was smart enough to figure this stuff out.

    I have been misunderstood.

    I BELIEVE THERE IS DEFINITELY GLOBAL WARMING.

    I AM SAYING THAT THERE IS GLASS IN THE SKY, THIS IS A FACT. THIS IS THE CONTRIBUTING FACTOR TO GLOBAL WARMING – GLASS, IN THE SKY.

    GLASS….in….the….sky.

    hey steven

    err i mean troll…

    tell you what, why dont you actually go see the movie then post about it. theres no flippin way you even saw the movie so go find an mmorpg or something to troll at.

    nowhere in the film does he even use a glass in the sky analogy. furthermore, all he does is present other scientists work in a package. not once does he claim he did any scientific work, but he points out how hes met with them, shows their data, and lets you the viewer draw a conclusion.

    i hear the duke nukem forever boards havent been trolled enough this week. go there noob.

  20. June 4, 2006 at 3:20 am

    sweet mother of all that is holy i just read stevens blog……

    firstly wow dude, this is for people in orange county california. go troll some wisconsin board.

    furthermore you realize on your blog you spent WAY too much time on (as in get a life dude) you seem to be way into the jesus, bible thumping and anti creationism thing.

    get that favorite book you list so proudly, actually read it. the guy you claim to worship so much was the ultimate pacifist. as someone that worships him so, youre supposed to be at the very least, trying to lead a life more like him.

    why not actually give it a shot

    again now we all know you didnt see this movie, youre not from orange county, and youre just out trolling looking to start some shit.

    btw my buddy in kenosha that just got back from a year in iraq just happened to call me (he works late). He wanted me to pass along that hed love to meet you face to face to thank you in person for getting shot at in this war at so you could make an ass of yourself on the internet.

  21. June 4, 2006 at 4:08 am

    in closing id also like to point out that theres no way our buddy steven saw the film. It doesn’t even open anywhere remotely near him until the 16th (Milwaukee).

    youve been de-funked, you have lost at the interweb. nothing to see here, move along…..

  22. June 4, 2006 at 8:07 am

    Christian said,

    “this is for people in orange county california. go troll some wisconsin board.”

    My message is for people of the entire world.

    “get that favorite book you list so proudly, actually read it.”the guy you claim to worship so much was the ultimate pacifist.”

    I am for peace, not war.

    “He wanted me to pass along that hed love to meet you face to face to thank you in person for getting shot at in this war at so you could make an ass of yourself on the internet.”

    Sounds like he has mis-directed issues with his maker. I’m only the message boy, don’t blame me.

    Again, please do not categorize me with the “religious right” I am not of this party.

    THERE IS GLASS IN THE SKY.

    THERE IS ICE COVERING THE GLASS.

    THE ICE WILL COME DOWN.

    THIS HAIL WILL SWEEP AWAY THE LIES.

    THE EARTH WILL BE FULL OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE LORD.

    I’ll just bet that this is going to exponentially increase within a VERY short time.

    Let’s keep a watch for the next “mysterious” block of ice that falls from the sky, kay?

    People, please, don’t waste time on SJC, GO SEE THIS MOVIE. It is the most important message you will hear in your lifetime or your children’s lifetime.
    The message was so clear, the photographic proof irrefutable.
    The United States must learn to curb our excessive energy appetites.
    We’ve got to write to our congressmen and get the US Senate to ratify the Kyoto Protocol.
    Send everyone on your E-mail address list the URL for the movie’s website so they’ll be motivated to see the movie or at least pay attention to the buzz this film is generating.
    It’s time to get off our fat asses in the USA and do something that is morally right for the world as a whole even if it’s going to impact our economy.
    We cannot afford NOT to act in the best interests of our planet. If we do not, how shall we answer our children when they ask ten years from now, “Why didn’t you DO something if you knew what was happening?”

  26. June 4, 2006 at 7:10 pm

    You can try ’til your blue in the face, to limit our ‘contributions’ to global warming.

    ‘twon’t do an ounce of ANY good.

    The ice will continue to fall from the sky.

    Global warming cannot be stopped.

    The glass in the sky is containing all the hot air.

    When all the ice falls down, when the light of the sun becomes 7 times as bright, maybe then you’ll believe.

    Repent. Honor God your maker. He is sitting up there 4,000 miles away.

    Al Gore is a mere puppet.

    For the brainwave that isn’t worried about ice melting in water raising levels — that’s true, but you missed the point — it’s the ice on top of the ground – the glaciers etc. in Greenland and Antarctica which are the real problem. Please don’t go spreading your words of wisdom about physics and chemistry simply from the view you’ve had watching ice melt in a drink …

  28. June 6, 2006 at 4:32 pm

    The earth is a concave sphere with God in the center.

    The most recent ice fall was on May 21st in New Jersey, that we know of anyway.
    The two before that were in April, one in Oakland, Ca, the other in LA
    And before that in February in Chicago.

    The ice is from the top of the sky, 70 miles high, it covers the glass, which is why the earth is warming.

    How many ice chunks mysteriously falling from the sky will it take for the world to believe me?

    Blessed is the man or woman who hears my message and believes without having to see the ice come down.

    The Day of Slaughter – When the Towers Fall
    by Steven Joseph Christopher

    Isaiah 30 is a chapter which reflects the stubborness of God’s people. They would rather listen to seers and prophets who would coddle them and tell them answers that are not true, but just comforting words.

    In verse 13, God says that the breach is ready to fall, swelling out and breaking apart instantly. This is now understood as the ice up at the top of the sky which is beginning to fall down. God says he will break it up as the potter breaks up his worhtless vessel of clay.

    When resistance to God has finally been defeated, God’s people will be gathered together in Jerusalem(note: understand where this is).

    This is going to be God’s New World Order. Farming will be the profession of choice.

    Now, in verse 25, it says that upon every high mountain and every high hill rivers and streams of water in the day of the great slaughter. Now you can understand how this will happen, all the ice at the top of the sky which is currently covering up the glass, will come down to the ground. It will unfortunately slaughter many people, homes, animals, buildings, etc. It says this will happen “when the towers fall”. The “towers” here are the ice chunks. It then goes on to say that the light of the sun will be seven times as bright. You see, the ice up there is not transparent, it is translucent. It blocks most of the sunlight from passing through. God will reveal the “lighting down of his arm” verse 30.

    This new dawn of civilization, I usher in to you. Truly, we shall beat our swords into plowshares. Capitalism, industrialism, democracy, for that matter will all bow out and succumb to the great mighty strength of God almighty. Peace will abound, for a season, nations will gather together to the true promised land, the cities of Israel will be rebuilt.(uderstand the location of this, it is not in Palestine). Mt. Zion’s casing will be re-cast, it’s altar will be built, at the commandment, and daily sacrifice will be re-instituted

    Get ready for the Hail

    A tempest of hail, shall God send down to the ground. Great stones of ice.

    The hail shall sweep away all the lies. You will see. The lies about our earth and the universe, about the denial of God’s literal existence in the heart of earth.

    The layer of ice that covers the “ionosphere” or “glasosphere” will begin to break apart and fall to the ground. This effect may be stimulated by the foolishness of HAARP, or it may be God’s anger, or both. In any event, when the ice comes crashing down to earth, it is VERY important that people stay away from coastlines…and move inland. There will be aftershocks, tsunamis and flooding consuming much, perhaps hundreds of miles of coastline in every continent. The earth is indeed warming up, it is expanding, just as hollow objects expand when they are heated. 4.0 and above earthquake frequency is increasing up to sometimes 5 per day. Source

    The ICE is the “vail that is spread over all nations” Isaiah 25:7

    It is the “face of the covering cast over ALL people”

    It will be removed, this is not a figurative vail, it is a physical one. Once removed, the sunlight will be so intense, that it will be intolerable for us to go outside. We will have to wait until what we now know as night to go outside. For the nighttime will be like daytime is now.

    Prepare your heart for the greatest revival in recorded history.
    Pray to God that you will be protected from the ice.
    All the earth will know God. His government will overtake all governments.

    Prepare.

    Oh, and put your faith in Jesus Christ, who died for your sins, that he may save you from hellfire.

    I know this is hard to grasp and it seems VERY strange.

    But this is what was prophesied in Isaiah 28, God said he would do a strange thing. It is strange to us because our perception of the universe is backwards.

    I hope someday I won’t scare you, but you can thank me for the fair warning of the ice that is going to come down from the sky.

    I’ve managed to animate a graphic depiction of this event.
    Here it is.
