Amid freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall, former U.S. Vice President Al Gore arrived at the United Nations COP24 “climate change” summit to preach about a looming “dark age” and a “hell on earth” if humanity refuses to accept his solutions to alleged man-made global warming. “It is real!” Gore (shown) pleaded Wednesday. The climate alarmist also suggested the solution was simple: More restrictions on liberty and energy, more globalism, more extreme population-control measures, and a lower standard of living for people everywhere. Brushing aside U.S. President Donald Trump, who called the man-made warming hypothesis a “hoax,” Gore said he remained “optimistic” that skeptics of his theory would ultimately be defeated. In fact, the quasi-celebrity warmist said it was almost inevitable. But in reality, experts and critics say that may not be the case.
Calling the decision to create a UN climate regime “the single most important moral choice in the entire history of humanity,” Gore sounded like an overly dramatic doomsday preacher shouting at passers-by. “Will civilization descend into another dark age?” he asked, getting worked up. “Will we descend into a condition that future generations will describe as hell on earth?” Ironically, it was almost 10 years ago exactly that Gore predicted, citing supposed “scientists,” that the Arctic ice cap would melt completely. In the real world, the Arctic ice cap is still there, and doing just fine. The National Snow and Ice Data Center recently noted that ice extent was “increasing faster than average for most regions in November.” Gore did not mention his long track record of failed doomsday prophecies, though.
Instead, he went through a seemingly never-ending list of examples of bad weather while spewing a dizzying array of unsourced numbers and statistics clearly aimed at terrorizing gullible members of the audience. Among other claims, Gore argued that a number of cities, including some in the United States, were at risk of going under the sea. Gore did that despite the fact that UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s own sea-level rise expert, Dr. Nils-Axel Morner, resigned his post when the outfit refused to correct its false claims about alleged dangerous sea-level rises. “All talk about a disastrous sea level rise by 2100 is nothing but scaremongering and deliberate harassment of the public by the IPCC (2013, 2018) and its media proponents,” he said recently, calling the claim of rapid sea-level rise a “serious mistake.”
Gore made many similarly dishonest claims. For instance, he blamed global warming for civil war in Syria. He blamed “air pollution” for making Polish children dumber, dishonestly seeking to connect CO2, also known as the gas of life, to actual pollution. He even claimed global warming would make allergies worse. “98% of European cities could experience worse droughts by 2050,” Gore claimed. “Half of all the animals in all the world have gone since the 1970s!” he fumed. “Is that OK?” Gore showed scary images of ice melting in Greenland in the spring, as if there were something unusual about that. He also played a clip of a nuclear bomb exploding for emphasis. And pointing to the hurricane that hit Puerto Rico, Gore blamed alleged man-made warming, and said the response was an example of “environmental racism.”
Touting Pope Francis’ teachings on environmentalism, however, Gore went on to suggest that surrendering more money and power to the UN and governments under the guise of regulating CO2 would somehow make the climate stop changing so everyone could live in peace and security. “When you look at this image, it brings into focus what it really at stake in all of these negotiations,” the climate activist pleaded, showing an image of the earth from space while urging people to “change.” “The choice we as a world community have to make is the single most important moral choice in the entire history of humanity.”
If humanity refuses to comply with his demands, Gore warned of more terrors to come. And not just bad weather. For instance, Gore claimed that alleged man-made climate change caused the refugee waves, which caused the “damnable wave of populist authoritarianism” that is now supposedly infecting America and Europe. Examples of this included what he described as a “dumb mistake” by voters United Kingdom who voted to secede from the globalist European Union in Brexit. Obviously, the globalists in the audience clapped. He also slammed the Trump administration and other governments, especially those that refused to “welcome” the widely ridiculed UN IPCC report hyping the alleged threat from alleged man-made global-warming. More than a few segments of Gore’s speech were dedicated to demonizing Trump.
