Al Gore was in the news again Friday at the South by Southwest Conference pushing the cause for which he’s become synonymous: mankind is killing the weather.
“We need to put a price on carbon to accelerate these market trends,” Gore said, referring to a proposed federal cap-and-trade system that would penalize companies that exceeded their carbon-emission limits. “And in order to do that, we need to put a price on denial in politics.”
The Climate Change movement is only about one thing; force. It’s a worldwide protection racket and the new FrancisVatican is 100% in compliance. What’s more edifying than the most trusted name in religion selling an Al Gore-sized scam?
I’ll never forget the 2000 election. Gore got all pumped up with muscles, then leaned all over George Bush during the debates, huffing and puffing and making quite the oaf of himself. He couldn’t stand at the podium and be silent like a gentleman while his opponent responded. He didn’t have it in him.
Next he threw a nationwide fit over the inability to inject quite enough fraud into the election to grab it.
Gore, who has made climate change an overriding theme since he lost to George W. Bush in the 2000 presidential election, made no mention of his political future. He took several questions from Twitter after his talk. None asked whether he was considering another run for the White House.
He said he hoped his third SXSW appearance would help promote the fight against climate change and to help put pressure on those who say it’s not a problem.
“We have this denial industry cranked up constantly,” Gore said. “In addition to 99 percent of the scientists and all the professional scientific organizations, now Mother Nature is weighing in.”
It’s really quite astounding how ever more preposterous things become doctrine in our television era. Gay people are parents, gender is chosen, ISIS isn’t Islamic, climate change causes a crisis of inequality…and now it also causes terrorism.
He led a presentation on major weather events that he said could be attributed to human activity. He linked troubles in the Middle East at least partially to climate change, saying that drought drove more than a million Syrian refugees into cities already crowded with refugees from the Iraq war.
At one point, Gore’s presentation showed a slide of Pope Francis. “How about this Pope?” Gore said.
Cardinal Peter Turkson, a Vatican official who helped draft the Pope’s anticipated encyclical on the environment, said recently that the planet was getting warmer and that Christians needed to address the problem. Gore said he looks forward to release of the Pope’s document, expected in June or July.
“I’m not a Catholic,” Gore said, “but I could be persuaded to become one.”
Great. That must be the New Evangelization. Talk about hitting a periphery!
Now let’s see if it can get him to bend and kneel for something that’s not money.
