Al Gore Disgustingly Compared Climate Skeptics to Uvalde Police Who Allowed Children to Be Massacred

Jim Steele

On July 24th on  Meet the Press, Chuck Todd interviewed Al Gore suggesting he is a prophet. Todd ignored all Gore’s failed predictions but started by fearmongering a mix of troubling headlines that have nothing to do with CO2 “

Todd stated, “You know, this week felt like your PowerPoint from Inconvenient Truth come to life. Some of the headlines: The Colorado River having to do water rations, the Monarch butterfly declared an endangered species. We had the ice melt in Greenland, record high temperatures in the UK, wildfires in France and Greece, the Rio Grande is running dry in New Mexico. It’s here. How much do you look back at what you warned and suddenly you see it come to life?”

Midway through the interview Gore then disgustingly suggests those who don’t act on climate change are similar to Uvalde police who did not act to save the children from being massacred. Their fear mongering knows no bounds!

Gore stated, “You know, the climate deniers are really in some ways similar to all of those almost 400 law enforcement officers in Uvalde, Texas, who were waiting outside an unlocked door while the children were being massacred. They heard the screams, they heard the gunshots, and nobody stepped forward. And god bless those families who’ve suffered so much.”

The interview was so disgusting I almost puked. Just to clear up some Todd’s dishonest ignorant statements and omissions:

Greenland’s ice sheet oscillates. It looks like Greenland ice is rebounding and will gain ice this year, similar to the gains made between the 1960s and 90s. Of course, Todd failed to mention Gore’s failed predictions.

The lack of water in Colorado and Rio Grande has nothing to do with greenhouse gases. It is partly due to how humans are using that water and partly due to atmospheric circulation not delivering the rains. Global warming should increase the rains that fall during the summer monsoons, not reduce the rains.

The Monarch butterfly’s greatest die-off happened in the winter when they froze to death. Added to that fact, the Monarch’s main food is the milkweed plants, a weed that competes with crops. So milkweed is being eliminated where it grows between crop rows.

All Mediterranean climates like California experience dry, hot summers, and thus are always fire prone. Localities should expect fire frequencies ranging from every 10 to 60 years. Fires in France and Greece are to be expected.Human-environmental interactions in Mediterranean climate regions from the  Pleistocene to the Anthropocene - ScienceDirect

There is an all out push to suggest we are experiencing record high temperatures. But there will always be new records at one locality but not in nearby regions. Thus a more honest look at record high temperatures would be to look at reecords for each state.
Of the 52 record high temperatures in the USA’s states (plus Puerto Rico and DC) 32 record highs were set between 1911 and 1937.

Of the 52 record high temperatures in the USA’s states (plus Puerto Rico and DC) only 20 record highs were set in the following 80 years, and only 12 set in the 30 years since 1990. There is no crisis and Gore and Chuck Todd are dishonest fear mongers

On the other hand, greenhouse gases should mainly affect
TMIN, not TMAX. And that has been true so far. The actual
pattern of warming since 1975 has been good news.
Not much higher TMAX in the tropics — mainly higher TMIN
in the Arctic. Give us more of that !

Since 1975 warming was mainly in the higher latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere, mainly during the coldest six months of the year, and mainly at night (TMIN), That is the pattern expected from increased greenhouse gases. But the Southern Hemisphere did not have the same pattern,
so never mind Antarctica!

Richard claims “Since 1975 warming was mainly in the higher latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere, mainly during the coldest six months of the year”

That pattern Is also exactly the pattern expected after the Arctic Oscillation shifted wind directions and blew insulating ice out into the Atlantic allowing stored heat to ventilate.

So why do you think the warming pattern is due to “increased greenhouse gases”?

Jim,
I think you may have misread the tone/point of RIchard’s post. I could be wrong (happy to be corrected), but I think Richard was pointing out that whilst the Northern hemisphere was playing nicely with regards to the CAGW hypothesis, the Southern hemisphere was refusing to play nicely, hence invalidating the CAGW hypothesis.
Happy to be corrected if I’ve got it all arse about face.

With the difference being unmovable ice cover at the Antarctic. The Arctic is experiencing a warmer, marine climate for a longer period of the year due to the diminished ice cover. This is almost certainly cyclical and already starting to increase for the last 6 years.

Remember most of the land in the southern hemisphere is not in the 45-90 latitude range. So comparing NH to SH is not the right thing to do, and we shouldnt expect the same pattern as the NH.

Higher nighttime temps are associated with higher humidity. This is expecially significant in the Arctic, where the recent higher temps are caused by more open water during the fall to spring period. This is self sustaining to large extent and almost certainly cyclical. As Arctic sea ice extent is now increasing again, we will see less and less of this anomalous high Arctic temps. It is already manifesting elsewhere as a persisting La Nina.
I believe we will need to revisit the recent solar maximum, cloud cover and humidity phenomena to actually understand what has occurred with climate in the last 100 years. Climate science has studiously avoided thee and any other topic that held the risk of disproving the AGW hypothesis. Just another brief chapter in the history of a massively corrupted field of scinece. Makes one wonder what else is being fiddled.

Jim,
Thanks for the article and the record high temperature data.
Most people really don’t understand the actual molecular physics causing greenhouse gas warming to be so concentrated in the coldest places of the Northern Hemisphere during the coldest times of year.
On a similar planet with the exact same dynamics taking place, where everything was the same except climate science was honest, there would be celebrating over this gift of warmth, exactly where it’s needed the most…….in the bitter coldest places.
On this planet (earth) the last 4 distinct periods with similar to even warmer temperatures, and humans in existence but not burning fossil fuels, science referred to those periods as climate OPTIMUM’S.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holocene_climatic_optimum
Now, we call that mostly beneficial warmth a CRISIS. The extra CO2 compared to those periods this warm makes it even more beneficial since sub 300 ppm CO2 for plants was very deficient. 
Since CO2 absorbs LW radiation between 12 to 19 microns and overlaps with H2O at many wavelengths, adding CO2 has minimal warming when there’s a great amount of H2O in that air mass.
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Atmospheric_Transmission-en.svg
H2O is 95% of the greenhouse gas warming and swamps CO2, especially at the bands they overlap at. However, in very cold/dry places, there isn’t enough H2O to saturate wave bands where it overlaps with CO2. As a result, CO2 plays a much bigger role in absorbing LW radiation in very cold/dry air.
The warmer and more humid an air mass is…………the more saturated the H2O wavebands absorbing LW radiation are and the less opportunity there is for CO2 to play a role at those overlapping wavelengths.
This is why greenhouse gas warming from CO2 is less and less, the warmer and more humid the air is.
Recent heat waves and records in mid and lower latitudes were likely a degree C or so hotter because of the increased CO2 in the air but the contribution to greenhouse gas warming from CO2 is extra swamped by all the water vapor during the Summer in mid/low latitude locations.
This is what makes it so ludicrous, when some of these places (like the UK) break records by several degrees and we hear that CO2 caused it to be so extreme.
It’s the complete opposite. The more extreme the pattern/temperature, the more independent it is from global warming and the more tied to a natural weather variation. 
A bit of an exception in the warm season are deserts/very dry air masses and of course higher latitudes that are drier.
The most humid places(absolute not relative humidity) in the Northern Hemisphere have experienced the LEAST amount of warming.
The Southern Hemisphere has much more ocean which takes many times more energy to warm than land and thus the warming is lagging in the SH. 
The image included shows how the year averaged warming anomaly is several times greater in the coldest places of the Northern Hemisphere than most places in the Northern Hemisphere. 

https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/4964

+++++++++++++++++++
Below, at these links you will see this principle in action over the Southern Hemisphere right now. Note the strong positive anomaly over and around the South Pole/Antarctic that stands out like a sore thumb. This is a feature that dominates for much of the Winter and is being caused by CO2, greenhouse gas warming that dominates because the air is so cold/dry there.
In a few months, when sunshine warms this region, the anomaly will disappear and a new one, for the same reason will develop in the Arctic and last much of the Winter in the Northern Hemisphere, thus continuing the same greenhouse gas warming in the coldest places at the coldest times of year.

I recall watching an interview with Al Gore, recorded before his infamous movie, where he was asked why he hadn’t given up tobacco farming, being that it was viewed so critically by every political movement, medical and social group.

His answer was straightforward, that until he could find an income as profitable as tobacco he would continue to farm it.

I have no idea if he has stopped tobacco farming yet.

pestilence and famine to make Ehrlich’s forecasts correct.

The Dark Side has been twisting adjusting and bending data wholesale to make CO2 into the global temperature Control Knob that they want it to be. They gave ‘The Climate Steering Committee’ a Nobel Prize for their skill in Climate Wroughting.

Al Gore shared this N. Prize for also getting everything wrong in a climate crisis film for which he also got an Academy Award.

Climate Alarmist Peter Glieck misrepresented himself as a member of the Heartland Institute to obtain confidential documents on donors to the institute. He even crafted a bogus ‘official’ document purporting it to be an inside policy memo to embarrass Heartland. The American Geophysical Union honored him for this ‘work’s by appointing him as Head of the Ethics Committee.

Ozzie Climateer Chris Turney, who led a sea expedition of press, scientists, tourists and even wives and children to study the ravages of Human Caused Global Warming on Antarctia. The fiasco that developed became known around the world as “The Ship of Fools”. They got dangerously stuck fast in the ice 40miles from Antarctica’s shore in -30°C with blizzard conditions in the middle of the summer! A Chinese icebreaker helicoptered them to an Australian research supply vessel. The expedition got sued for 3 million for time lost by Australia’s own polar researchers. Anyway, Doctor T got an award from the “ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Science for … ehh…, well that’s just something they do these days!

This reminds me very much of the “Hitler argument”, or Godwin’s law, which applies to social media and effectively says that the longer an online argument goes on the greater the probability that someone will be compared to Hitler.

It’s widely accepted that by resorting to the lowest possible form of insult the person making such an accusation has run out of reasonable points to support their view and has therefore lost the argument.

I’d say that pretty much sums up what’s happening here. Gore’s clearly desperate, otherwise why lower himself to such an absurd and offensive accusation.

“They heard the screams, they heard the gunshots, and nobody stepped forward.”

Weather certainly causes havoc and death from time to time. It always has and always will. But where are the screams and gunshots that can be attributed to climate change? If there were any, normal people would want to do something about it. But for most people, climate change is last on their list of concerns. The fearmongers are quick to attribute everything that happens to climate change, but they have no evidence to back them up. All their predictions of climate catastrophe have failed to materialize. In fact, weather related deaths have actually gone down over the past 100 years despite an increase in population. So when a change in climate that is actually caused by humans begins to make people “scream” in pain, let me know. That’s when I’ll be glad to do something about it if I can. But until then, Al Gore can keep his comments about the horrors of climate change to himself and his vivid imagination.

Regarding Monarchs. A few years ago I had an email conversation with a Texas A&M professor that studies Monarchs. I was describing how around Temple, TX where I live many farms, ranches and wild fields are now subdivisions where there is no milkweed and few if any flowers, just manicured lawns. I mentioned that I can still find milkweed at the edges of the city, along rural roads and ditches alongside fields of crops.
He stated that the greatest issue for migrating Monarchs are cities. With so little in the way of food migrating butterflies die from fatigue and starvation before they can fly over cities.
He called cities… Green Deserts.

A Leftist “massacre” will eventually occur if Leftists continue their destructive policies of: closing down fossil fuel and nuclear plants and inadequately replacing them wind/solar, the worst supply-chain disaster in US history will continue as long as Leftists acquiesce to Longshore Unions who refuse to operate ports 24/7/365 like all other industrialized countries, monetary inflation could reach hyperinflation levels if Leftists continue to print money, our culture, voter base and Republic will be massacred if we continue to allow 2.5~3 million illegal aliens to invade our borders every year with the eventual Leftist scheme granting citizenship to 20+ million 3rd World illegal aliens, our agricultural sector will be massacred if Leftists prohibit or severely limit the use chemical fertilizers, SCOTUS will be massacred if Leftists follow through with their threat of packing 4 additional Leftist judges to the court, capitalism will be massacred if Leftists continue with their ESG program of only allowing financing to Woke industries and starve free-enterprising corporations, our economy will collapse if Leftists continue to add to the already unsustainable $33 trillion in national debt, etc.,

RINOs continue to wait at the open door and do little to nothing to stop the above carnage from destroying our country…

As always, Leftist Irony continues to destroy our Republic and our economy…

But Biden came out here to the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and talked them into working on weekends. That helped, didn’t it?

Retired_Engineer_Jim-san:

in typical Leftist fashion, It was just a few berths (not even one full pier).. that slightly extended off-loading hours, which, of course, did absolutely nothing, other than provide a fake sound bite suggesting the supply-line fiasco is being actively addressed by Gay Mayor Pete (our fearless Transportation Secretary)..

What a joke.

I watch Dan Bongino regularly to get a feel for what’s going on in US politics.

Dan is an ex NY cop and secret service agent and he was as shocked at the Uvalde killings as anyone.

However, he gave it a day or two, to let some facts filter out before making comment. The most important observation I think he did make is that much like the military, cops are bound by their obedience to instruction from senior officers.

It’s not only instinctive, it’s a practical means of ensuring you don’t get prematurely sacked from the job for disobeying orders.

Any VET reading this will understand precisely what I mean. Only you disobey orders in a combat situation and you are likely to get dead really fast.

There is also training. From what I read and watched online, those cops didn’t have a clue what they were doing, in other words, they were not trained to deal with that situation.

The border patrol guys seemed to showed up and immediately get to work doing what they were trained to do. You barely need orders if you are well trained because you know your drill, by the numbers. No one can sack you for that unless you go off script.

I’m an ex cop, I know all this to be true.

The failings weren’t, by and large, of the cops in my belief. Difficult to say when you’re not there but, clearly, there was no plan whatsoever. If you’re not drilled in the process of taking down a live shooter then you are likely to wind up being included in the body count with no impact on the situation.

The leadership was poor but the training poorer still. Had the cops known what to do, they would have done it, I’m pretty convinced of that. There’s a video of one cop being restrained and then relieved of his weapon for trying to go in to save his wife. There was no lack of courage, just uncertainty as to what to do next.

Those cops have to live with what happened for the rest of their lives. Although nothing near this scale, I still bear the mental scars of things I was involved in 40 years ago.

To use these mens misery to publicly widen the divide between them and the Uvalde public, is beneath contempt.

Al Gore should be severely and publicly censured for what he said. He has done nothing but harm for no more than his own self promotion. Joe Biden or, in his absence, Kamala Harris should have come out and condemned Gore in a public statement. To my knowledge to date, neither have.

Now’s the time for thoughtful introspection by the police and politicians. It’s a time for grieving for the children, staff and families and invoking the Christian ethic of understanding and forgiveness.

It’s not a time for opportunistic grandstanding by Al Gore.

“The failings weren’t, by and large, of the cops in my belief.”

I agree. The police would have gone in had they been instructed to do so. The problem was the person who was supposed to make that decision did not make the decision in time, for whatever reason.

I think the police have been unfairly maligned. I think they would have acted if instructed to do so. There was a failure of leadership.

Tom, I think the problem is the failure of training. If they were trained properly they likely wouldn’t need instruction to proceed, they would just have gone in with the confidence they were doing the right thing.

No one can lawfully/morally instruct a cop to do a job he’s not trained for. They might have gone in and done more harm than good. Enthusiasm and courage is no substitute for training.

I’m guessing a bit but it would seem, again, this comes down to a question of leadership long before the event even manifested itself.

I think you’ve got that dead right and it’s almost pandemic in western society. Everywhere you look there seems to be a void in the decision-making process and we’ve certainly seen it in the UK as I’m sure you know.
I don’t know the root cause but we are bedevilled with “leaders” who can’t lead and aren’t really interested in doing so. Their own personal interest is as far as they can see.
The end result is that our police are rudderless, our civil servants are rudderless (whatever we say about bureaucrats they’re usually pretty good at carrying out politicians’ wishes — as long as they know what they are!), and our senior politicians are clueless.
it’s no wonder we’re at the mercy of every activist with an agenda!

Wow – that is an astounding set of justifications for failing to do what a normal human man with heart would do and go in there and stop the shooter no matter who says what. Astounding!

Your argument is that as “order followers” they were okay to stand down and let kids get killed while they stood there and listened. Unbelievable.

They were at least trained in how to operate a weapon, and you are excusing their utter cowardice and betrayal of duty on the basis that they were not trained for that particular scenario.

And we are supposed to respect and accept this because you were one of those order followers. Well I’m sorry. I don’t respect it or accept it at all.

I am a schoolteacher and I would have gone in there for those kids. I’m not just saying that because I have been in the middle of a code red lockdown – (no active shooter but threat of one) – and I know what I did.

I have no respect for “order followers” that won’t do what’s right in situations when especially children stand to lose their lives.

Well, let’s pretend for a moment that he is right and we are the cops. Wouldn’t that make him – considering his humungous carbon footprint – the shooter inside the school?

Actually, skeptics are the complete polar opposite of those Uvalde cops.

Skeptics are trying to rescue humanity’s scientific aptitude and humanities ability to apply reasoning and free will thinking so that people can gain objective discernment by using principles of the scientific method.

To help other humans to use authentic data, observations and evidence in order to understand rock solid scientific and energy principles.
Fighting with gusto to stop guys like Gore from using blatant intelligence stealing, climate DISinformation/propaganda schemes.

Gore’s success is based on being a very charismatic professional con artist. He get’s rich, selling fake climate crisis snake oil, while doing more to destroy the planet in 1 year than most of us do in 2 decades of consuming natural resources.

Gore and company are revered as being saviors of the planet!
What sort of bravery is required to do things that make you filthy rich and win you an Emmy, a Nobel Peace Prize and adoration for twisting the hell out of the truth to get those personal rewards?

What did Gore, the extremely wealthy, fossil fuel guzzling, luxury addicted, massive natural resource consuming hypocrite ever sacrifice to show us by example how to live?

If we all consumed material things like Gore, the planet would be running out of natural resources.
If all the science being taught was similar to Gore’s fake climate crisis science, we might as well stop teaching science in schools and universities.

Better to not know anything than to have ANTI science principles programmed into your brain. This effectively sabotages those minds and assures authentic science will always be rejected.

No understanding at all about a topic and at least that blank slate is capable of learning new, authentic things because that mind hasn’t been programmed/taught to reject real science.

How many millions of minds have been permanently harmed by Gore doing this?
Stifled to not use critical thinking or questioning or fact checking or having the skepticism required to apply the scientific method? Instead just believing in Gore’s junk science like its a religion?

Al Gore: “The debate is over, the science is settled” There have been very few more ANTI scientific method statements ever issued in history!

Praise the climate prophet, Al Gore and have the faith of a religion in his junk science absolutes…..even in the face of all of them failing miserably, year after year.
And have the faith in him like in a cult leader/prophet in what he insists his disciples believe in.

That’s exactly why he’s been able to get away with being constantly wrong about almost everything. People have decided that he is right about everything from the get go based on nothing more than a religious type FAITH in their climate prophet Al Gore.
They give all the weighting to his manufactured, climate crisis world and very little to the real world or observations, data, facts and evidence.

People using those words/actions in bold are committing blasphemy!
Heretics/deniers of the climate crisis religion.

Gore and company teach that they/we must be vigorously condemned and shunned and vilified by society for speaking out against climate crisis religion and it’s leaders!

Going against that severe backlash aimed at “deniers” because you believe in science and integrity is actually a better example of true courage!

The recent notorious one in the south of England appears to have been the result of spontaneous combustion in a compost heap. If true (there will no doubt be an enquiry of some sort) that will have been genuinely a freak event and they do happen very rarely.
Apart from that and lightning strike every other wildfire has human input somewhere, whether a dropped cigarette end, a piece of broken glass acting as a magnifier or a spark from a steam locomotive.
Or in the vast majority of instances, as you say, arson.

With apologies, I repeat my comment from the immediately preceding post.

There was one officer who tried to enter the classroom and intervene. His wife was inside. He was physically blocked by the consensus.

Mr. Gore if you’re looking for an analogy between Uvalde and the alleged climate climate crisis, consider this one. That misguided consensus caused a tragic loss of life, as will the climate crisis consensus..

When you think the alarmists can not get any lower, along comes ‘ice free in five years’ Gore to prove us all wrong and way too optimistic.
Does it get any more low draw, any more crass than this?
The Nobel Prize awarded leader of the Alarmists, adopting and invoking such a tragedy as Uvalde to aid his errant position.
Society has a problem, when the likes of Gore are rewarded for irrational decision making and down right lies.

You know, the climate deniers are really in some ways similar to all of those almost 400 law enforcement officers in Uvalde, Texas, who were waiting outside an unlocked door while the children were being massacred

Interesting metaphor but just who would be the vile gunman preying on children?

Al ( The Big Lie) Gore-boells. Not a single thing he ahs predicted has come true. Nothing he said in his idiotic film was true. He is a failed theology student, who dreamed of being the Messiah of climate. When we eventually dig down to the bottom of the swamp, we’ll find whatever seed of Satan he started from there.

Climate alarmists are like the shooters that scared and shot the children.
They are destroying society, economy, welfare, freedom, democracy and future.

They are the enemies of the people, the climate realists try to protect the people from a horrible future.
