Al Gore’s Global Warming Doomsday Prediction Is Nearing Its Deadline


It is pretty well documented that Al Gore is not only a nut, he is a huge hypocrite.

After running around scaring people that the end of the world is coming thanks to global warming, he sold his company to Al Jazeera which is of course a company that is heavily funded by oil money.

About ten years ago, Gore predicted we were a decade away from “the point of no return” on global warming and that if we didn’t do something drastic the consequences would be dire.

From WZ via WUWT:

On January 25th, 2006, while at the Sundance film festival, screening “An Inconvenient Truth”, Al Gore said this as chronicled in an article by CBS News:

The former vice president came to town for the premiere of “An Inconvenient Truth,” a documentary chronicling what has become his crusade since losing the 2000 presidential election: Educating the masses that global warming is about to toast our ecology and our way of life.

Gore has been saying it for decades, since a college class in the 1960s convinced him that greenhouse gases from oil, coal and other carbon emissions were trapping the sun’s heat in the atmosphere, resulting in a glacial meltdown that could flood much of the planet.

Americans have been hearing it for decades, wavering between belief and skepticism that it all may just be a natural part of Earth’s cyclical warming and cooling phases.

And politicians and corporations have been ignoring the issue for decades, to the point that unless drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gases are taken within the next 10 years, the world will reach a point of no return, Gore said.

He sees the situation as “a true planetary emergency.”

“If you accept the truth of that, then nothing else really matters that much,” Gore said in an interview with The Associated Press. “We have to organize quickly to come up with a coherent and really strong response, and that’s what I’m devoting myself to.”

Well, the 10 years are about up, by now, warming should have reached “planetary emergency levels”…

We are about three weeks away from Al’s deadline and it looks like this “planetary emergency” hasn’t been drastically dealt with yet.

Al Gore made a lot of money exploiting people’s fears by making wild claims that global warming would usher in the end of the world.

For example, over the last 20 years, the average global temperature hasn’t increased.

That hasn’t stopped Gore from blaming every hurricane and tornado on “climate change”.

Give it a rest Al.
