Al Gore should be wearing a tin foil hat.
The former Vice President has been making the rounds promoting his sequel to ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, which is conveniently titled, ‘An Inconvenient Sequel’.
And in a recent interview, he made the most asinine analogy ever in the “fight” against climate change.
Liberals everywhere will clamor for Gore’s new documentary because they can’t help but drink the climate change Kool-Aid.
While promoting his new film, Gore said to the packed audience of The Producers Guild in New York:
“When President Trump made his speech withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris agreement I was worried that other countries would follow his lead.
But instead, the entire rest of the world doubled down on their commitments. Now it looks like the U.S. will meet its commitments regardless of what Donald Trump tweets.”
No, Donald Trump wisely withdrew from the Paris accord because the U.S. was unfairly putting more money into it than anybody else.
That’s a bad deal, but people like Gore can’t see through the winds of climate change.
In fact, Gore compared the “fight” on climate change to other historical fights for justice that were even more insane.
Fox News reports:
“In a July 13 speech to the EcoCity World Summit in Melbourne, the former vice president argued combating global warming was ‘in the tradition of all the great moral causes that have improved the circumstances of humanity throughout our history,’ according to the website Climate Depot.
‘The abolition of slavery, woman’s suffrage and women’s rights, the civil rights movement and the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa, the movement to stop the toxic phase of nuclear arms race and more recently the gay rights movement,’ Gore said.
Marc Morano, executive editor for ClimateDepot.com, told Fox News he made an audio recording of Gore’s remarks because summit organizers prevented media from videotaping the event.
Morano, a former communications aide to climate change skeptic Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., also confirmed reports that security staff physically prevented people from taking photos with their cell phones.
It is not the first time Gore has drawn the parallel between global warming and civil rights.
‘The climate movement should be seen in the context of the great moral causes that have transformed and improved the outlook for humanity,’ Gore said at an green energy awards ceremony in June.
‘It was wrong to allow slavery to continue, it was wrong to deny women the right to vote, it was wrong to discriminate on the basis of skin color or who you fell in love with,’ he continued.
In a 2013 interview with The Washington Post, Gore likened climate change “deniers” to alcoholic fathers who fly off the handle when the issue is mentioned.
‘The conversation on global warming has been stalled because a shrinking group of denialists fly into a rage when it’s mentioned.
It’s like a family with an alcoholic father who flies into a rage every time a subject is mentioned and so everybody avoids the elephant in the room to keep the peace,’ he explained.”
Why should we trust a man who makes such horrible comparisons?
The correct answer is that we shouldn’t, and it’s time he just goes away already.
