His words say one thing; his actions something else entirely.
Fox News Channel’s Chris Wallace locked horns with global warming/climate change/climate justice alarmist Al Gore Sunday over the former vice president’s wild claims of world-wide gloom and doom — none of which ever came to fruition.
Gore’s first appearance on Fox News since his failed 2000 presidential campaign was unremarkable until the final two minutes, when Wallace confronted Gore with his fantasy-filled predictions.
“Unless we take drastic measures the world would reach a point of no return within 10 years,” and would herald in a “true planetary crisis” due to man-made global warming Gore claimed in his 2006 film, “An Inconvenient Truth.”
It’s been 11 years since that film was released. What happened, wondered Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.” “Weren’t you wrong?” Wallace asked.
While an honest person would have sheepishly admitted that he was incorrect, no one could attach that label to Gore.
“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,” Gore claimed.
“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,” he added.
Gore continued his “we must act now in order to avoid worldwide calamity” spiel.
“We are going to suffer some of these consequences, but we can limit and avoid the most catastrophic consequences if we accelerate the pace of change that’s now beginning,” Gore said.
Interestingly enough, a mere four years after the release of “An Inconvenient Truth” when he predicted the drastic rise in ocean levels, he and his then-wife Tipper purchased an oceanfront estate in Montecito, California.

Had Gore truly believed his hype, he would have put his money where his mouth is and invested in future oceanfront property — somewhere in Nevada.
