Al Gore blasted Donald Trump for his decision to pull out of the Paris Accords.
He thought he could get away with using fake news to make Trump look bad.
But he was caught red handed telling a massive lie.
Gore falsely claimed Trump was defying the will of the American people by withdrawing the United States from Barack Obama’s global warming agreement.
But polls showed very few Americans feel battling so-called “global warming” is a high priority.
Michael Bastasch wrote at The Daily Caller:
“Former Vice President Al Gore attacked President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris accord Monday, calling global warming “the most serious challenge we face.”
“We’ve never had a president who’s deliberately made decisions the effect of which is to tear down America’s standing in the world, starting with his withdrawal from the Paris Agreement,” Gore said on NBC Monday morning.
“The climate crisis is by far the most serious challenge we face,” Gore said.
However, a Bloomberg poll found that only one in 10 Americans agree with this statement.”
Trump argued that the Paris Accords was a globalist scheme to redistribute American jobs and wealth to other countries.
In fact, one of the reasons foreign leaders kicked up such a fit when Trump announced he was pulling out of the deal was because it would rob them of a slush fund generating tens of millions of dollars in taxpayer money that they could sink their mitts into.
But this was not the only fake news Gore has been peddling about so called “global warming.”
In a recent interview on Fox News Sunday, he was called to account for his false predictions from 2006 that the world only had ten years to deal with global warming or all would be lost.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace confronted former Vice President Al Gore on his 2006 claim that unless drastic action was taken humanity would face a “true planetary emergency” in the next decade.
“Unless we take drastic measures the world would reach a point of no return within 10 years,” which Gore said would precipitate a “true planetary crisis” due to man-made global warming.
Wallace pointed out it’s been 11 years since Gore made the claim in his 2006 film “An Inconvenient Truth,” and there doesn’t seem to be a planetary emergency…
… Gore’s first film “An Inconvenient Truth” has been credited with popularizing the global warming debate. The film emboldened environmentalists and probably played a role in the Obama administration’s failed effort to pass cap-and-trade legislation in 2009.
But many (if not all) the claims Gore made in h(is 2006 film never materialized. The Daily Caller News Foundation fact-checked Gore’s claims on his film’s ten-year anniversary”
Gore has made repeated false claims, such as the highest peak on Mt. Kilimanjaro becoming snow-free within the decade.
That was fake news.
But maybe his most famous lie about global warming was his false claim in 2008 that the Arctic would be free of sea ice by 2013.
That didn’t happen.
Gore has made a career out of alarmist claims about the environment.
But he’s taken his lying to new levels now that Trump is President.
