Al Gore met with Ivanka Trump and than President-elect Donald Trump at Trump Tower today. The Trumps are reaching out to the climate hysterics who make up the majority of the Democrat party. Gore, the Ambassador of Doom sends chills down the spine of the right but evokes sheer reverence from the left.
Ivanka Trump and her brothers are to the left of the GOP on a number of issues, including the issue of climate change.
This is what Al Gore had to say after meeting with the President-elect.

Perhaps they discussed the Goracle’s many predictions.
In January, 2006 — when promoting his Oscar-winning (unbelievably, Oscar-winning) documentary, An Inconvenient Truth — Gore declared that unless we took “drastic measures” to reduce greenhouse gasses, the world would reach a “point of no return” in a mere ten years. He called it a “true planetary emergency.”
Gore warned that increasing carbon dioxide emissions would spur catastrophic global warming that would cause more extreme weather, wipe out cities and cause ecological collapse. To stop global warming, humans needed to ditch fossil fuels and basically change every aspect of their lives.
In his movie Gore predicted that sea levels could rise six meters (20 feet) with the melting of the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets.
Obviously that hasn’t happened. The North Pole is gaining ice and Greenland hasn’t changed much.
Al Gore believes that what controls the temperature is the CO2 we exhale. Satellite data show no increase in temperature for nearly 19 years despite a constant increase in CO2.
He claimed Africa’s tallest peak will be snow-free “within the decade.” Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa still has the same amount of snow year-round.
Gore also famously predicted storms would become more frequent and intense as man-made emissions warmed the oceans.Storms are no more extreme in 2016 than they were in 2006.
The polar bears were supposed to be extinct. In fact, there are more polar bears now than when Al Gore was born.
The Sahel was supposed to dry up. As shown by satellite images, the Sahel is in fact one of the regions that gained the most flora density since satellites exist.
CBS News reported at the time that Gore’s film predicted the worst-case scenarios would be a new ice age in Europe, massive floods in China, India, and other areas.
Still waiting on that one.
Remember the crazy 2008 doomsday film? By now, gasoline was supposed to be $9 per gallon. Milk would cost almost $13 per gallon. Wildfires would rage, hurricanes would strike with ever-greater intensity.
As Laura Ingraham said this evening on Fox News, Al Gore is for making life in the US more expensive while he flies around in his jets.
Maybe they should have discussed his hypocrisy today.
NPR’s Mara Liasson said on Fox News this evening that climate change isn’t one of Trump’s bedrock beliefs. She must be an oracle too and she will be just as accurate as Al Goracle.
