Al Gore wants nothing more than to be President.
But after his embarrassing attempt for the presidency in 2000, he has been spending his life screaming about so-called “global warming.”
And now his career is over after his biggest failure yet.
In 2006, Al Gore released An Inconvenient Truth, a movie forecasting a bleak view of the future.
He claims that global warming would destroy the earth if nothing is done.
Many predictions are made in the movie.
Virtually all of those predictions have been proven wrong with time.
Despite that, he continues to push his radical environmentalist agenda.
Last year he put out a follow-up movie, An Inconvenient Truth 2, again pushing the urgency of stopping global warming, instead using the term “climate change.”
One of the big parts of the movie praises the city of Georgetown, Texas for their steps towards being more “environmentally friendly.”
The city chose to power the city with only solar and wind energy.
Their bold move is a major part of the film, and Gore visited the city to praise them for their bold action.
But as it turns out, the move isn’t going as well as Gore wants to make it seem it is.
After costing the city nearly $7 million this year alone, they are looking for a way out of the costly contracts they have with solar and wind energy companies.
Speaking to the Daily Caller, the vice president of the Texas Public Policy Foundation (TPPF) Bill Peacock says “it’s costing them big time.”
“This doesn’t appear to be the first time they’ve lost money, just the first time it was big enough to have to go public with it,” Peacock continues.
While losing $7 million wouldn’t be a huge deal for Gore, who is worth an estimated $300 million, it is devastating for a local government.
This loss is just another failed prediction for Gore.
While speaking to the city in 2016, he touted the huge savings that using so-called “green energy” brings.
“And one thing that Georgetown demonstrates to other places that are just beginning to think about it is that the power supply is not only more affordable, the cost is predictable for at least 25 years into the future and really beyond that,” Gore said.
That clearly isn’t true for Georgetown.
It may have been true if President Trump wasn’t in office.
Under former President Obama, fossil fuel costs were through the roof.
That is because of his crippling environmental regulations making fossil fuel production extremely difficult and expensive.
But President Trump is reversing Obama’s agenda, putting Americans back to work, and lowering energy costs.
This outlines the major problem with environmental activists like Gore.
In order to push his agenda, crippling regulations on industry is required to make his alternatives cost effective.
That kills American jobs while increasing energy costs.
If an idea requires destroying competition through government regulation, it probably isn’t a good idea to begin with.
Do you believe in so-called “man-made climate change?”
