Massively wealthy climate fear prophet and green government subsidy profiteer Al Gore finally has something real to be alarmed about. And yes, it’s quite the opposite of rising sea levels. Responding to President-elect Trump’s pledge to drain the Washington, DC, swamp of corruption, their December 5 meeting must have tracked lots of muddy footprints onto plush Trump Tower carpets.
The discussion reportedly delved into murky science waters of manmade disaster concerning an inconvenient croc.
Just in case of any unlikely doubt, this is the very same former Senator Al Gore who convened the famous 1988 Senate Committee on Science, Technology, and Space hearings that produced a manmade global warming crisis media frenzy . . . an event which occurred about a dozen years after three decades of global cooling when many prominent scientists were predicting an arrival of the next ice age.
As his colleague Sen. Timothy Wirth, who helped organize the meetings, later stated in a PBS interview:
“We called the weather bureau and found out what historically was the hottest day of the summer . . . so we scheduled the hearing that day, and bingo, it was the hottest day on record in Washington, or close to it . . . we went in the night before and opened all the windows so that the air conditioning wasn’t working inside the room.”
This same “Goracle” has repeatedly warned that increasing CO2 emissions would spur catastrophic global warming that will flood coastal areas and cause more extreme weather unless we immediately ditch fossil fuels which supply about 85% of America’s energy in favor of windmills and sunbeams which now intermittently provide about 4%.
Yet other than two naturally occurring 1998 and 2014 to 2016 El Niño periods, satellites show that global temperatures have remained flat for nearly two decades despite those “record high” atmospheric CO2 emission levels.
Regarding that extreme weather, even the alarmist UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports that there has been no overall increasing trend in hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, or droughts in the U.S. or globally. In fact, no Category 3, 4, or 5 hurricane has made landfall in the U.S. since Wilma in 2005, the longest such lapse in more than a century.
Nevertheless, climate crusader Gore soon pocketed hundreds of millions of dollars from companies which were “going green.” He was also poised to make windfall profits selling CO2 offsets through his stake in the Chicago Climate Exchange if and when Congress passed cap-and-trade legislation he promoted.
