Al Gore has always had a tenuous relationship with the truth. He enjoys using it in the title of his documentaries, but that’s about it. In 2006 he made the bold prediction that, in 10 years, we would surpass the point of no return. Now, 11 years later, Al Gore is still flying around in his private jet, pimping the environment for personal gain. Some of you may be wonder why, you know, we haven’t actually passed the point of no return. Mr. Gore was recently confronted by PJ media’s Nicholas Ballasy about that conundrum.
Ballasy: “Looking back on that prediction, why did you make the prediction at the time and are you making a new one right now given the current circumstances?”
Gore: “Well, first of all, we’ve seen a lot of progress since the first movie came out. We have the Paris agreement now. The cost of renewable energy has come down so quickly that people are switching over. Unfortunately, some elements of the Earth system have crossed a point of no return”
In reality, Gore gave three different answers, all of which contradict with each other. Let’s break it down.
“Well, first of all, we’ve seen a lot of progress since the first movie came out. We have the Paris agreement now”
The obvious implication here is that the Paris agreement is just the type of progress we need to prevent the earth from reaching the “point of no return” in 2016, as Gore originally predicted. Look, we solved the problem with the big government globalist approach, three cheers for big government! There’s only one problem, the Paris agreement was adopted in December of 2015, just one month before the we were all doomed to “the point of no return.” Talk about waiting until the last minute!
“The cost of renewable energy has come down so quickly that people are switching over.”
Now we have a different answer. We’ve managed to save the world and avert the 2016 doomsday crisis by switching to alternative energy. While this is admittedly the most feasible answer of the three, it’s still rather laughable for a couple of reasons. I still see a ton of those evil, gas guzzling SUV’s on the road today. Not only do people still drive gasoline powered cars, but gas is a fraction of the cost of 2006. While I admittedly drive a hybrid SUV, it is purely for economic reasons, and I am still in the minority. Could it be that economics and free market government could have caused us to drive more fuel efficient cars, saving the world? Not so fast, Gore surely couldn’t allow free market capitalism to be the hero.
“Unfortunately, some elements of the Earth system have crossed a point of no return”
Turns out there are multiple points of no return, and we have already crossed some of them. You can’t make this stuff up, folks. To recap, 1)we haven’t crossed the point of no return because big government saved us, 2)we haven’t crossed the point of no return because the market saved us, 3)we’ve passed some of the points of no return but Al Gore can save us with his private jet.
If climate change is happening, Al Gore is 100% responsible. Americans see this clown parading around in his private jet, lying and profiting from fake science, and it makes them incredibly skeptical. There are honest and hardworking scientists conducting research that are being smeared by both sides of the political firestorm Gore has created. We will probably never know the real truth regarding climate change, but we will certainly see the impact of Gore’s big government ideas. Society really should stop taking this conman seriously.
