    Interesting how the anti science crowd ignores the mountain of evidence about global warming and just say its a bunch of nonsense. They dont try to refute it, they just ignore it. If the facts are not on your side I guess thats the best you can do.

    Gore is a character not unlike Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. The mere mention of their names gets people going.
    With regards climate change, and in many other areas as well, trump has ironically been a force for good. He has motivated people out of their complacency to become active. The makeup of the house since the 2018 election is a good case in point.

    Every time I see Gore in a discussion with scientists who understand the climate, in as much as anyone does, it is embarrassing. He is so much out of his depth when doing anything other than wailing about polar bears. Seen from the UK it seems the USA is a beacon of scientific reason re climate change. The warming scare has peaked and we are on the downslope. Here in Europe we are still in the grip of the media and politicians with law degrees who are very happy to spend multi billions of our taxes on climate change prevention AKA reducing CO2 emissions, good luck with that. We have one or two parliamentarians who have science or engineering qualifications. The head of our committee on climate change is a major shareholder in various green businesses.They have just advocated that by 2025 no new homes can have gas furnace heating to prevent CO2. We will have heat pumps and you can guess who has shares in the Pump companies.

    "Not one thing you said is true! "


    "Gore said New York would be under water by now"

    Go ahead and cite any source that proves Gore said New York would be under water by now. Facts matter, especially for credibility. We'll wait.

    "Ocean levels have not risen"

    NOAA disagrees with you. They state the following; Global sea level has been rising over the past century, and the rate has increased in recent decades.

    Feel free to refute them with any citation of your own.

    He never said Ice free, that is a total falsehood. He never said New York would be under water by now. Another lie. The oceans are most certainly rising. Miami for one is spending many millions of dollars trying to protect themselves from the rising sea level.

    mcclark: Not one thing you said is true! 2009: Al Gore - "Ice Free within 5-7 years". Gore said New York would be under water by now and its certainly not. Ocean levels have not risen and man kind can not control the climate! In the meantime, fossil fuels are the only thing keeping millions of people from freezing to death! That's the truth!

    Actually he has been spot on, from oceans rising, ice caps melting, hotter and hotter years. Its the anti science people who have been wrong every step of the way.

    Every climate prediction Al Gore has made has failed to happen! Not once has he been right! Why would anyone believe him now?
