Former Vice President Al Gore was confronted on “Fox News Sunday” by host Chris Wallace who pointed out the failed predictions made by Gore in his 2006 film An Inconvenient Truth.
“Unless we take drastic measures the world would reach a point of no return within 10 years,” claimed Gore in the film, causing a “true planetary emergency” as a result of man-made global warming. Yet 11 years later, there appears to be no imminent crisis, Wallace observed.
Gore responded by insisting that he was right about global warming, now known as “climate change.” He said, “Well we have seen a decline in emissions on a global basis. For the first time, they’ve stabilized and started to decline. So some of the responses for the last 10 years have helped, but unfortunately and regrettably a lot of serious damage has been done.”
“Greenland, for example, has been losing one cubic kilometer of ice every single day. I went down to Miami and saw fish from the ocean swimming in the streets on a sunny day. The same thing was true in Honolulu just two days ago, just from high tides because of the sea level rise now.”
“We are going to suffer some of these consequences, but we can limit and avoid the most catastrophic if we accelerate the pace of change that’s now beginning.”
The Daily Caller reports:
Gore also mentioned the directors of his upcoming sequel film “An Inconvenient Sequel” are adding a new segment at the end to account for President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris agreement on climate change…But many (if not all) the claims Gore made in his 2006 film never materialized.
