Former Vice President and certifiable climate hysteric Al Gore said that the fight against global warming was just like the great moral causes in history, like abolishing slavery or the civil rights crusade of the 1960s. The comments were made during a speech at the EcoCity World Summit in Melbourne, Australia.
“The climate movement,” Gore said, “is right now in the tradition of all the great moral causes that have improved the circumstances of humanity throughout our history. The abolition of slavery. Women’s suffrage and women’s rights.”
“The civil rights movement and the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa,” he continued. “The late Nelson Mandela said it was always impossible until it was done. The movement to stop the toxic phase of the nuclear arms race and more recently the gay rights movement.”
The left likes to quote the hard-left freedom fighter Nelson Mandela who helped bring his country down into an economic abyss.
There are problems with Gore’s argument. For one thing, the “moral causes” he references were “political problems” with “political solutions”. They had nothing to do with science. Secondly, those noble causes were grassroots in their origin. They were driven from bottom up, from the people, not the top down, the elites. Lastly, those “moral causes” were not designed to control and redistribute massive amounts of money — our money. The Paris Agreement requires 37 developed countries to give away $100 billion to non-developed countries and that’s just for starters.
Referring to those emotional and real moral causes is a subterfuge and a gimmick.
Gore continued, “Some of you may disagree with that. I don’t. I did earlier in my life.”
“But all of these movements have one thing in common,” he bloviated. “They all have met with ferocious resistance and have generated occasional feelings of despair from those who knew the right direction and wondered whether we could ever get there.”
Gore also referred to Donald Trump, “the person in the White House”.
“We are changing rapidly no matter what the person in the White House says,” Gore charged.
“This is a statement from Goldman Sachs,” he quoted, “The prices for batteries and solar panels will continue to drop. That will drive this transition regardless of who’s in the White House.”
“Can you imagine what I feel,” he added.
No, we can’t Al, because you’re crazy and we’re not.
Gore is promoting a sequel to his 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth about the theory of climate change and the threat it might pose to future generations. He must want to pad his income. The last film made him rich and famous beyond his wildest dreams.
It is a film filled with inaccuracies.
Chris Wallace interviewed Al Gore on June 4th this year. Wallace got him to admit his major predictions were wrong, the Paris Accord does not address the problem, and the world is moving towards cleaner energy without global regulations.
