“During my service in the United States Congress I took the initiative in creating the Internet.” ~ 1999 interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. While he didn’t mention it, he invented the climate crisis also.
Gore predicts Trump’s possible doom
Al Gore said on Tuesday that President Trump’s time in office could be cut short due to “ethical reasons.”
The Washington Examiner notes that he made the comment after a Berlin screening of his new documentary on climate change, ‘An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.’
Gore told attendees, “We’re only six months into the experiment with Trump. Some experiments are ended early for ethical reasons.”
The former vice president also mentioned Trump’s decision to pull the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement and promised there is still a way to meet the climate goals.
Gore said, “We have a global agreement and the American people are part of this agreement in spite of Donald Trump…We can win this…All we need is the political will,” and expressed his hope that “soon” the U.S. will “once again” have a leader dedicated to combatting global warming.
Another ridiculous Gore prediction among so many
This is the guy whose movie about the climate “crisis” bombed in the theaters last weekend, pulling in 15th after low-grade movies like one about emojis. That’s all it was about – emojis. He obviously made a bad prediction there!
Gore’s first documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, predicted 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.”
That was in 2006. Rush Limbaugh set a ten-year doomsday clock which he called Al Gore’s “armageddon” clock. It expired in January, 2016. We’re still here.
As it turns out, poly sci major Al Gore was wrong. The polar ice caps didn’t melt, the sea levels did not rise, Florida is not underwater, and we didn’t grow fins.
Al Gore predicted in 2007 that all arctic ice would be gone by 2014
Sea levels were supposed to have risen 20 feet by now thanks to the melting of either West Antarctica or Greenland. Al Gore said it was to take place in the “near future.” As it turns out, sea levels appear to be rising at about three millimetres per year. At that rate, with twenty feet a little more than six thousand millimeters, we have a good 200 years. A lot can change in that amount of time.
Al Gore reported over and over that the Arctic Ocean would be ice-free in the summer by now. Snopes found, “In the late 2000s, Al Gore made a series of high-profile statements suggesting the possibility that Arctic sea ice could be completely gone during the summer by around 2013 or 2014.” They then concluded that while “Arctic sea ice is, without question, on a declining trend,” Al Gore “definitely erred in his use of preliminary projections and misrepresentations of research.”
A High Court judge in the U.K. said that Gore’s first film required guidance notes so as to not become “political indoctrination”
“The Armageddon scenario he predicts,” the judge said, “insofar as it suggests that sea level rises of seven metres might occur in the immediate future, is not in line with the scientific consensus” and would only happen “after, and over, millennia.”
The judge also had problems with the film’s claims that global warming was “shutting down the Ocean Conveyor.” At best, that was very unlikely according to the findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
Actually, NASA found in 2010 that there had been no significant slowing over the previous 15 years. What they did find is the Ocean Conveyor “may have even sped up slightly in the recent past.”
There were nine problems in all. Climate alarmists will tell you they were minor issues. Do these sound minor to you?
The polar bears are doing fine even though the film claimed they were drowning because they were unable to find ice. Climate hysterics are still making this fully-debunked claim. Polar bears, as it happens, have increased over the past decade, from 20,000-25,000 to 23,000-32,000 bears in 2016.
We are not saying we shouldn’t take better care of our planet, we are saying it’s not a crisis and we need to keep studying the issue and move incrementally with reason and sound science, not political science. Destroying our economy with the absurd Paris Accord and transferring our wealth to the rest of the world is not the answer.
If Gore wants to talk ethics, he might want to look at his own.
In addition to grossly misrepresenting the climate “crisis”, alarmist Gore is the climate/carbon footprint hypocrite whose home uses 34 times more electricity than the average U.S. household. This is the same man who sold his TV station to the Qatar propaganda network, Al Jazeera. Qatar is fossil fuel nation.
