Al Gore Crowdsourcing Ideas For His Next Global Warming Film

Former Vice President Al Gore wants people to walk away from his newest film wanting to do more to fight global warming — something Gore has had a tough time doing himself.

He told the Associated Press Friday the new movie should encourage people to “invest” in making their lives more climate friendly by reducing the amount of energy they use at home or supporting green causes worldwide. Additionally, Gore suggests viewers of his movie should use their collective political power to enact environmentalist legislation.

“Anybody who works on the climate crisis is tempted in some dark moments to despair but it doesn’t last long for me. Despair is just another form of denial,” Gore told The AP. “We don’t have time for it, we have work to do and the basis for hope is real and authentic. The solutions are here. Electricity from solar and wind is now getting cheaper than electricity from fossil fuels and we are seeing a huge switch in that direction.”

Gore, however, isn’t living a climate friendly lifestyle himself.

In just this past year, he burned through enough energy to power the typical American household for more than 21 years, according to a new report by the National Center for Public Policy Research. Gore says he hopes the film will cause Americans to change their lives in small ways to be more environmentally friendly, including switching to LED light bulbs or keeping the thermostat slightly warmer in the summer.

“Use your capacity as a citizen, to let candidates and office holders know that this is important to you,” Gore said. “When we win the conversation, when you use your voice, then the laws begin to change.”

The new movie is the height of “climate narcissism,” an attendee of the film’s premiere told Axios’s Amy Harder in July. The attendee told Harder the film “showed how much of the climate movement is out of touch with political reality right now” because Republicans control all three branches of government.

Not a single Republican lawmaker showed up to an early screening at the Capitol, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film’s trailer heavily focuses on President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris agreement on climate change, but the full movie barely addressed this development. The film “actually ignores the inconvenient reality climate change advocates are now facing with the Trump administration,” Harder reported.

Environmental groups credited Gore’s first film, “An Inconvenient Truth,” with popularizing the global warming movement. The movie emboldened environmentalists and probably played a role in the failed effort to pass cap-and-trade legislation in 2009.

    The best thing Al Bore can do is to duct tape his piehole closed and cut back on all the Hot Air

    It is possible to be an environmentally responsible conservative Republican capitalist. Waste not, want not.
    I’ll bet that the people LEAST likely to litter are Christian and Republican. (witness the aftermath of protests)
    Carbon dioxide is fuel for the biosphere, it is not pollution.
    Albert Gore has no clothes. The Democrats must know that he and Hillary are political baggage that has to go. The 2016 election showed that voters have to deal with everyday life, phony crises turn them off.

    Ol Al should do the “reality” TV thing. Have cameras follow him around as he finally starts to practice what he preaches. You know living that no carbon lifestyle he yah-all dreams of for us “little people”. Maybe he could team up with Vanilla Ice and go Amish… LOL…

      He could start by sharing a plane with 250 “little” people. Nothing wrong with first class, it subsidizes the seats back in coach. Think of all the crowds he’s missing by flying private jets.

        Hmm… Good idea! He could set up his little Snake Oil salesman/ Preachers podium and sermonise the captive audience. Maybe play his science fiction/ horror/ comedy/ movie?

            He hasn’t got no sole. He has raked in millions on this scam, while the poor black children do the hard labor. These Green Shucksters are the Real Robber Barons. At least the Old Robber Barons provided a real and needed service to all mankind. Instead of virtue signaling by “switching to LED light bulbs or keeping the thermostat slightly warmer in the summer.” All done on the backs of the poorest people.
