(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) As global elitists burned through their ever-expanding carbon footprints chartering private planes to Davos, fellow jet-setter Al Gore went on an unhinged, scaremongering climate rant during a panel discussion at the World Economic Forum.
The former vice president scattershot wild predictions and dire warnings of boiling oceans, sea bombs and atomic bombs.
Lecturing about the impact carbon emissions are taking on the troposphere, Gore scolded that humans are using the thin layer of atmosphere as “an open sewer.”
“If you could drive a car straight up in the air at interstate highway speeds, you’d get to the top of that blue line in five minutes, and all the greenhouse-gas pollution would be below you,” Gore said, claiming that “the accumulated amount is now trapping as much extra heat as would be released by 600,000 Hiroshima-class atomic bombs exploding every single day on the Earth.”
Fox News host Sean Hannity ripped Gore’s climate hysteria, noting the long line of his similar claims that have been debunked.
“There are dark corners of the Internet with more believable conspiracy theories than his,” Hannity said. “Make no mistake, Al Gore looks like a lunatic, acts like a lunatic, and he is a lunatic.”
Gore hit full stride at Davos when he told his WEF audience that the climate crisis was “what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs, and sucking the moisture out of the land, and creating the droughts, and melting the ice and raising the sea level and causing these waves of climate refugees predicted to reach one billion in this century.”
If that’s not bad enough, Gore claimed that climate change caused racism and political authoritarianism.
“Look at the xenophobia and political authoritarian trends that have come from just a few million [climate] refugees,” he said. “What about a billion? We would lose our capacity for self-governance on this world.”
To save humanity, Gore said “We have to act. We have to have a sense of urgency much greater than we have yet had. And we need to make some changes.”
To that end, Gore gaggled with Colombian President Gustavo Petro Urrego to explain how the evils of capitalism were to blame.
“The capitalism that we have known in the last 30, 40 years, can it overcome the climate crisis that the capitalism helped create?” Petro asked rhetorically, because the obvious answer, he said, was that capitalism needs to be replaced or humans will perish.
The lust to maximize profit that drives capitalism has created “global anarchy,” he declared, and “the oldest source of energy to increase profit is coal, oil and gas, and these have resulted in a change in our atmosphere.”
“We have to put an end to this if we wish to live in our planet,” Petro said. “If capitalism isn’t able to do so, either humanity will die with it or humanity will overcome capitalism so that we can live in our planet.”
Don’t let it be lost on anyone that Al Gore is sitting right next to this guy as he spouts off about “overcoming capitalism”.
The WEF is telling you their goal. Believe them. https://t.co/txiiDEOfUo
