@AlGore to launch climate brainwashing campaign for students worldwide Nov 20-21

From Tom Nelson

On Nov. 20-21, 2019, in schools around the world, for ages down to kindergarten, Al Gore’s “Climate Reality” group plans to give presentations based on Gore’s highly fraudulent “Truth in 10” slideshow. https://www.climaterealityproject.org/truth

I think as many skeptics as possible should check out the map here.

If a presentation is scheduled at a local school, please take the time to write a complaint letter.  (Please let me know via DM, email, or comment here if you do some pushback).

From an email I just sent to our local high school’s superintendent, principal, and chemistry teacher:

——-I found out that a climate presentation from an Al Gore group (“Climate Reality”), along with a “climate activism” talk, is scheduled to be given to five Mounds View chemistry classes on Nov 20.


The presenter was part of a group personally “trained” by Al Gore when he was in Minneapolis in August 2019.  The stated goal of that training is to “shape public opinion, influence policy, and inspire your community to act at this critical time”: https://www.climaterealityproject.org/training

From Climate Reality’s mission statement: https://www.climaterealityproject.org/our-mission“The Earth is facing a climate crisis, driven by fossil fuels.At Climate Reality, we’re here to make urgent action a necessity. In politics. In business. In every aspect of our lives. Everywhere.Urgent action to cut greenhouse gas emissions and speed the global shift to renewables. Urgent action to halt the Trump Administration’s radical fossil fuel agenda
I view the proposed presentation (given by Al Gore here) https://www.climaterealityproject.org/truth) as politics masquerading as science. I personally don’t think this presentation or “climate activism” belongs in MVHS chemistry classes, but if that happens, I’d like to ask for “equal time” in those chemistry classes to correct some of that misinformation.
I have a great interest in the scientific debate around climate change; I’ve been sanity-checking these issues almost daily in great detail for about 12 years. I do have about 35 slides (graphs etc) that I’ve pulled together in the last few days, with more planned.
I agree with [another parent] who wrote about the Nov 20 presentations:
“The kids should be given both sides and let them use their critical think skills to decide what they believe. I would be happy to support…You can include me as concerned parent.  I could also attend the class to support your cause”.

Thanks! Tom

Background: From this Al Gore tweet, I found out that his “Climate Reality” group will be making basically the same climate pitch all around the world on Nov 20-21, including in high schools and in classes for students as young as kindergarten:

Here’s one key misinformation-packed slide from Al Gore’s spiel. Look at all the horrible stuff allegedly caused by ~400 ppm CO2!

Note this 11/7/19 update to my post above: “Success! Our principal has ruled, correctly, against allowing in-classroom Al Gore propaganda at our local high school on Nov 20: “Climate change is not a current curricular standard. As a result, it will not be included in the curriculum for this course, and we won’t be welcoming in-classroom speakers on the topic””

Well done, Tom. All your work is very much appreciated, as is the work of everyone involved with the website and the wider world. I just thought I’d send you thanks from one of the silent majority (I hope there is a silent majority anyway…). Good news seems somewhat rare in these times of mass delusion. Thank you.

In medieval times, Al Gore would have been the Chief Inquisitor manning the rack, extracting confessions out of his poor victims. If he had existed in the Aztec era, he would have been the High Priest ripping the living hearts out of his prisoners. In this day and age, all he has left is to try and kidnap the minds of the young, innocent and gullible school children with his lies, half truths and misinformation. Keep your children away from Al Gore by withdrawing them from school on those days he is doing his brainwashing. Or get a court order against some of his ‘facts’ in his movie like the UK did with some of the misinformation he was peddling in schools. He is truly despicable preying upon children.

But it’s costing us “our way of life” and “much, much more” according to the people claiming that our way of life is directly responsible for the sky falling and we must change our way of life, or else. Cognitive dissonance never seems to effect climate cultists for some reason.

November 7, 2019 8:57 am

How is this lying vile human still allowed to talk on a national level? Are academics all sold out, that none of them are shouting from the roof tops that CO2 is a scam, which cost the tax payer trillions… Their was a letter sent to the u.n. by a large amout of scientist’s, why are none of them allowed to speak on a national level? Can’t they force themselves on the main stage like xr has?

Just in from WUWT: 11,000 scientist [clowns] just came out in fierce rebuttable to the 500 who wrote the UN letter. It’s just another highlight of the magnitude of the corruption problem. We have incentivized a tsunami of scientists on the grant dole over the years. More like activism plus grant money is the university education model these days.

Anyway, their dramas have no boundaries. It’s like the political left vs right: for what the left lacks in workable policy, they have always been more organized which works really well for them in compensating for their lack of truth and common sense. I’m not sure if the real climate scientists can get the organizational mechanism needed to consistently rebut and keep up, primarily because we’re not motivated by money and power, aka socialism, ultimately on the global level.

How can we motivate the real scientists to have similar magnitude vision/goals pursuing truth instead? Grand scale pollution and health targets? Low cost energy targets? Perhaps an alternate big vision can at least give people something else to fight for for those that crave that on a large scale. At least it could be the lead that functions as a distraction while they’re forced to look at the real science.

I think that it’s a very good idea to learn schoolkids at an early age about lies, distortions and propaganda. What better examples of fake-news than Al Gore and his books /sarc.
Remember: his infamous Incovenient Truth was not allowed by the judges in England to be used as class room material without explicit warnings by the teacher.

I went to school in Germany, and theorically to one of the best. We were shown “An Invonvenient Truth”. The teacher called it a documentary. That was in 2008 or 2009 if I remember right. My sister went to the same school a few years later and was shown the same film by another teacher, which makes me suspect that it’s in the curriculum.
We were teenagers and we had no reason to mistrust our teachers. I knew about photosynthesis and ice ages, but I swallowed the lie. So did all my classmates.

You have clearly come to recognise, if not the truth, then at least that there is doubt about the ‘settled science’. This is very encouraging as I have long maintained that there will be a natural backlash from our youth as reality begins to dawn.

Most of us on here, even the studious older members of WUWT, went through a rebellious stage in our youth, pushing back and questioning everything we were told was ‘right’. Most of it we found was right however, many of us realised some of the truths we had been indoctrinated with were not true.

In our day it may have been religion, the evils of alcohol, or gender segregation, perhaps politics, but we all questioned something.

It is my abiding belief that it will not take a generation (not even close) before our children and grandchildren collectively react to ‘climate science’, as the grape vine of Chinese whispers grows ever more strident.

The scam has a natural end, nature will ensure that, but it will also have a social end as more young adults watch the Yellow Vests in France, and the disenfranchised in Chile reacting against oppressive government policies to raise taxes under the shroud of climate change. And there’s more to come.

The western world is approaching, if not already at, ‘peak climate’. The big successes for the Gores of this world have already been made, now there are only tiny increments left, and they have neither the time nor the ammunition to see this through.

Unless we here are all very much mistaken, the recent, almost imperceptible warming the planet has experienced has plateaued for nearly 20 years. In which case, there are two possible outcomes.

Warming must be dramatic, and genuinely unprecedented, to even approach the alarmist computer model predictions or, the planet begins to cool, just as imperceptibly (hopefully) and trashes once and for all the concept that human emitted CO2 causes warming.

Keep questioning, Christina.

As much as I hope that you’re right, I’m afraid today’s young generation isn’t questioning the climate scare yet. The grownups (40+ yrs) that I know aren’t too scared about the climate. Their kids, by joining XR, are rebelling against their parents. Facts don’t always help, either. When I visited a town in Germany that is now famous for its cherry trees, and heard that they used to grow wine there until it got too cold, the penny still didn’t drop. It took somebody with a degree in history to tell me about the Medieval Warm Period and the Holocene Optimum and how the Earth is greening already. I thought he was exaggerating, so I set out to find the facts and original data. Lo and behold, he was right. And lo and behold, I was old enough to admit it. At seventeen I wouldn’t have.

In my own age group I meet lots of people who are happy with their beliefs, be it climate alarmism or radical feminism or whatever else. If I show them facts, like that their country’s laws discriminate explicitly against men, they answer: “We just see the world differently.” Probably, in a direct confrontation, they don’t want to admit that they were wrong. How do you change somebody’s mind and still let them keep their face? How do you make them feel smart while you teach them? Any advice?

November 7, 2019 9:32 am

I think we should find out if there is a similar group that disseminates counter-agw info using the same Goebbels-inspired propaganda m.o. as Al Gore’s cult does.

Great work Tom! I will be sending this to concerned friends. My other half was raised in the Mounds View area. We recently moved to Alaska to be nearer family. So far the only one scheduled (from the map) in Alaska is in Fairbanks.

Do you or does anyone know how this massive propaganda effort to terrorize our kids is being financed? Was there any coverage in the media of Al Gore training people in Minneapolis for these events? There has to be a significant amount of “dark” international money (Soros?) to pull off something like this.

Al Gore’s sticky green footprints have also stomped all over South Africa, and we now have hundreds, if not thousands, of climate crusaders spreading the Gorespel around these parts. They are well organised and apparently well-funded, and both the public and the government here seem to think this is all good, clean, green fun. This has made it possible for our latest official energy policy to come out top-heavy with wind power, a disastrous move that will see the country sink into the kind of energy black hole that is happening in South Australia. And nobody says a word!

Here is what Gore’s Gang have in store for the gullible suckers in Cape Town:

“For a full 24 hours on 20 – 21 November 2019, Climate Reality Leaders trained by Nobel Laureate and former US Vice President Al Gore will be presenting 24 Hours of Reality: Truth in Action in hundreds of communities all around the world.

African Climate Reality Project in collaboration with Rotary International District 9350, is hosting the Cape Town leg of this global day of action, and we would love to see you there!

The evening will be packed with action-inspiring, solutions-based conversations about the climate crisis, and the exclusive 24 Hours of Reality: Truth in Action presentation will be led by one of African Climate Reality Project’s dedicated Climate Reality Leaders.

In partnership with One Tree Planted, The Climate Reality Project will also plant one tree for every attendee, which means by attending you will help reforest critical areas around the world!

As teenage climate activist, Greta Thunberg says, “The most important thing we can do right now is to inform people about what is actually going on” – so join us in this global climate conversation, and put climate truth into action from 18:00 – 21:00 on 21 November at Workshop 17, V & A Waterfront – entry is free, and food and drinks will be provided.

RSVP and reserve your space here, and ACRP will be in touch with all the details.

Notice how the media were in panic about Day Zero in Cape Town in March 2018. National Geographic also hyped the alarm. There certainly had been a terrible drought and the dams were very low but no one mentioned that the rainy season was in winter beginning around April. By the end of winter 2018 the dams were over 74% full. This year after another good winter the dams are over 84%. Of course the reader is not informed that the biggest dam which holds over 53% of the water was completed in 1979 and only one dam, a quarter the size, completed in 2009 . But the population has more than doubled since 1979. The water crisis is actually not a climate crisis but the failure of people to plan and adapt.


The media are also being alarmist and disingenuous about another very large dam in the interior of South Africa. This is now less than 50% full – but again they do not explain that this is at the beginning of the summer which is the rainy season. Blaming climate change for the problems of water and drought in South Africa is simply a smoke screen to cover the mismanagement, incompetence and corruption of those governing.

Better phrased as critical thinking skills.

Gore’s prediction that Arctic sea ice would be gone by 2016 (or 2013 by another climate scientist

Al Gore’s environmental documentary An Inconvenient Truth contains nine key scientific errors, a High Court judge ruled yesterday.

The judge declined to ban the Academy Award-winning film from British schools, but ruled that it can only be shown with guidance notes to prevent political indoctrination.

November 7, 2019 11:43 am

Just a side note:
I just wondered how many of the 16 $-pieces could stay around that Art-Deco cashier machine “The cost of carbon … and much more, much more,” when a natural global cooling would replace that CAGW.
I came just with two: Melting Glaciers and Sea Level Rise — no biggie: Growing Glaciers and Sea Level Drop; really, the rest could stay as is. Very clever indeed; almost as much as the ‘Global Warming’ being replaced by the ‘Climate Change’ strategic move.

The CBC once again aims for the top propagandist site in Canada award:
In defence of climate change ‘hypocrisy’
When it comes to the environment, perfect should not be the enemy of good
Brooks DeCillia · for CBC News · Posted: Nov 07, 2019 5:00 AM MT | Last Updated: 4 hours ago

And the best hypocritical lines are:

“But is this really hypocrisy? Philosophers doubt it, calling the criticism a non sequitur that shuts down a crucial debate about climate change.”
Asking environmentalists how they charge their iPhone or if they drove to a protest is really aimed at shutting down debate. ”
Sean Holman, a professor of journalism at Mount Royal University, thinks journalists need to be careful when shining a light on hypocrisy in this way. Holman, who recently wrote an open call to Canadian journalists to start reporting on climate change as an emergency

Coming from people who for years have done all to shut down scientific debate, who shut down scientific papers in locked up peer review scandals, who celebrate at the passing of scientific experts who did not share their submission to the Cause, who terminate tenures of academics who are objecting at the extremism or denouncing the tendentious research , who use an establishment vetted 16 y old psychologically challenged product to indoctrinate our youth, who are obeying orders from billionaire owning newspapers to ramp up agitprop alarmism cloaked as academics, who have enrolled everyone from the Pope to academic disciplines that have no tools to understand the science…

The author is Brooks DeCillia, a Political researcher who spent 20 years reporting and producing news at CBC. He splits his time now between researching public opinion about energy and the environment at the University of Calgary and teaching journalism at Mount Royal University.
and he quotes Holman a professor in the very same university… How convenient.

Next, CBC will tell us that conflict of interest will be an asset as long as it is for saving the planet… and make trillions of dollars in carbon exchange schemes…

Thank you, Tom.

I looked up information about the “Climate Reality Leaders” in two particular countries with only a few presentations. While they attended Gore’s short course, I am not convinced that they appreciate the need for astute observation, careful reasoning and meticulous discernment when grappling with the complexity of our climate and its effects.

They are disingenuous calling their project “The CLIMATE REALITY Project” and describing presentations as “Truth in Action.” Speaking of a “climate scientist” as being an expert on climate is misleading. The reality is – to begin to get a proper understanding of climate – we need various sciences like physics and chemistry, geography and oceanography, climatology and meteorology, mathematics and statistics, and of course computer science.

Al Gore and his acolytes have great confidence in their understanding of climate and how it will impact our world into the next century – if we do not make the changes he demands. This overweening confidence is not shared by many humble scientists as they grapple with countless uncertainties. Many from various scientific disciplines are attempting to reconstruct a million piece climate jigsaw puzzle. However, they only have a couple thousand pieces. At best they can only make educated guesses about what should be in the numerous blank spaces. As new pieces are found and filled in over the next century or two the picture is likely to begin to look very different. That is the historical nature of all scientific endeavor.

Al Gore is a very good speaker but he is a politician and not a scientist. Most of what he has been telling us is just not true. For example in his first movie he presents a chart showing CO2 and temperature over the past 650,000 years. Al claims that the data shows that CO2 operates as a temperature thermostat and that more CO2 in the atmosphere causes warming. But when you look at the data more closely, one finds that CO2 follows temperature. It is well known that warmer water cannot hold as much CO2 as cooler water so that warmer temperatures cause more CO2 to enter the atmosphere. Al Gore also places today’s CO2 level on his chart. I do not believe that anyone is debating the fact that mankind’s use of fossil fuels has caused an increase in CO2 in the atmosphere. If CO2 were really the temperature thermostat than it should be much warmer than it actually is but it is not. If anything, Al Gore’s chart shows that adding CO2 to the atmosphere does not cause warming but of course Al will not tell people about problems associated with the data he is presenting.

Al Gore shows a picture of the atmosphere and the Earth showing a shell of greenhouse gas. That chart is science fiction and has nothing to do with reality. The Earth’s atmosphere is not structured like that.

If the science were really settled, then the IPCC would have established a single value for the climate sensitivity of CO2 and a single climate model that did not include any fudge factors but such is not the case.

The climate change we are experiencing today is happening so slowly that it takes networks of sophisticated sensors, decades to even detect it. One must not mix up weather cycles with which are part of the current climate with true climate change. Based on the paleoclimate record and the work done with models, one can conclude that the the climate change we are experiencing is caused by the sun and the oceans over which mankind has no control. Despite the hype, there is no real evidence that CO2 has any effect on climate and there is plenty of scientific rationale to support the idea that the climate sensitivity of CO2 is zero. This is all a matter of science.

The AGW conjecture sounds credible at first but upon closer inspection one finds that it is based on only partial science and is full of holes. For example, the AGW conjecture depends upon the existence of a radiant greenhouse effect caused by trace gases in the Earth’s atmosphere with LWIR absorption bands. Such a radiant greenhouse effect has not been observed in a real greenhouse, in the Earth’s atmosphere, or on any planet in the solar system with a thick atmosphere. The radiant greenhouse is nothing but science fiction so hence the AGW conjecture is nothing but science fiction as well. So what Al Gore is pusing is science fiction but he is not telling people that.
