When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

Not just the status quo buys PR machines like Al Gore, who hypes the issue, and makes absurd proclamations.
Your lens needs cleaning.
Al Gore is political so it's his job to sell a message he believes in. He took it on because he believed in what the science was saying & portrayed that message. As for the rest of the scientists selling ability, it only amounts to a handful around the globe as it is total alien territory for them.
Which then leaves "US", the average Joe who also choose to believe in the science. Why because it all makes logical sense that man is having a huge impact on the planet's environment because with over 7 billion of "us" on the planet now we consume far more than the environment can regenerate in time which equates to a negative impact. A continual extending of the environmental credit card if you like.

But for those who choose not to look at that environmental credit bill that comes out every year and keep asking for extensions. They make all of "US" pay more in the long run in every possible way. Both financially, socially and living in a secure peaceful existence. Throughout history ignorance has always paid the highest price.

How much of what he has said do you believe?
A percentage will do, if you know what percentage means, of course?

From FoxNews: Former vice president Al Gore on Monday called for making climate change “denial” a taboo in society.

“Within the market system we have to put a price on carbon, and within the political system, we have to put a price on denial,” Gore said at the Social Good Summit New York City.

He urged attendees to challenge denial of climate change in conversations in families and communities and elsewhere.“We can win this conversation and winning a conversation can make all the difference,” Gore said.“Don’t let denial go unchallenged.”

Gore noted how racism and later homophobia have become increasingly unacceptable.

In this thread and others, Al Gore gets a pass: he's not a scientist they say, he's just a promoter they say, or he's a politician they say.

And when questioned as to what Gore says, promotes and demands on the part of global warming compared how he himself lives in his mansions, his jets & travel and his SUV caravans to and from his 'events', he gets another pass.

Stuff like that makes thinking people say, hmmmm....

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Yegads! You think I'm talking about a media campaign for all your 'scientists' to "sell" global warming? How about just a march, a letter to the editor, anything to show they are taking it as seriously as you are. What changes in their lives have they made to thwart global warming, and demonstrate it is indeed a "crisis".

As for Al Gore, if he believes in it, he doesn't abide by it.

Lousy spokesman you have there.

But that's something warmists don't talk about.

btw, your last two posts added at least another 14g CO2 into the atmosphere.

How can you live with your hypocrisy?

A bad move. More 'social change' substituting for science is the wrong way to go. Like entrenching Lysenkoism.. or well supported poltiical positions in contrast to the science.

What should be laughed at is the clueless reasoning that is used by the denial. The LACK of science in their 'message' should be disdained.

Al comes from a political family that understands and serves the American people.

He talked about how people are keeping silent because of the aggressive deniers. Search for his interview with Charlie Rose.

If we could only get Obama to STFU, that would reduce CO2 by about 10 trillion cubic liters per year. Not to mention ending his non-stop lies & BS!
