Almost-President Gore: PUNISH Climate ‘Deniers’


Since retiring from ‘public service,’ former Vice President Al Gore has made a name for himself as a leading advocate for global warming, which was later renamed climate change. (Hey, did you hear Boston set an annual snowfall record this year?) Gore’s most famous achievement after leaving the Clinton White House was his movie, an Inconvenient Truth. The film was an Oscar winner and shed light on global warming, er, climate change, in 2006, at the beginning of the hysteria over the scientific theory.

Climate change, despite the claims of its proponents, is just that: a theory. That’s not enough for Mr. Gore, however, and at an appearance at the conference SXSW in Austin, Texas this week Gore took his advocacy to the next level, with the environmental website EcoWatch reporting,

The former vice president focused on the need to “punish climate-change deniers, saying politicians should pay a price for rejecting ‘accepted science,’” said the Chicago Tribune.

Predictably, the uber-liberal website Vox decided the next day that Gore should run for President again. How utterly laughable that possibility is aside, it’s important to keep in mind just how close Gore came to defeating President George W. Bush in 2000. If he had been successful in the Florida recounts, where would those who still keep an open mind on the scientific theory of climate change be today? It’s a chilling question which we thankfully do not have an answer to. For the benefit of all who value the freedom of expression and opinion, let’s hope Mr. Gore remains a private citizen with waning influence in the political sphere.

Comment below: Would Al Gore be a serious candidate in 2016?

    Liz, do your own homework. Everything you’ve said is false and been debunked from the Weather Channel to NASA. Gore has made millions with this scam and continues to do so. Some of the nations most educated and experienced meteorologists and climatologist have written articles denouncing his claims. Gore is not a scientist.

  2. Randy says:

    The concept was renamed climate change because too many people thought a record snowfall discredited the theory, which the author of this story demonstrates by placing such (“emphasis”) in his article. As far punishing politicians who do not accept the science, those who don’t accept it are most likely being paid off (campaign contributions) to stand up in the face of 99% of the scientific community by claiming they’re not scientists but have no qualms playing like a doctor by interfering with women’s healthcare issues. They further stand up and claim the research is not in which proves they know as little about science as they do about economic issues.

    For the most part this article is worthless in spreading factual knowledge and further typifies the ignorance of the author’s argument.

      By the way, a cold winter does not mean the average temperature of the earth is not increasing. The fact that Boston broke a record indicates the winter was an abnormal event. There will be winters that are colder, in some regions, and summers that are warmer is others. It’s the average global temperature you need to take into consideration.

    I punished this idiot in 2000. Led the highest plurality in entire state against him . We cancelled a lot of Memphis votes that day. Screw that clueless idiot.

    Liz, did it ever occur to you, that in the history of the earth, it has gone through numerous warming and cooling periods? So you better do YOUR homework.

  5. Liz says:

    Sorry guys but good old Al is right….did it ever occur to you that the severe storms the world is experiencing is from climate change? The ice in the Artic and Antarctic has been there forever and it is melting…the polar bears are dying. Baby seals washed up on the California coast dying from hunger because their parents had to go so far out in the ocean to find food because the waters were so warm….better do your homework.

    1. Al says:

      Sorry Liz, but your claiming that the severe storms the world is experiencing and polar bears dying, as well as baby seals dying from hunger on California beaches are caused by global warming is just an opinion. You are certainly entitled to it, but you believing it does not make it fact.

    2. Darrell says:

      I am not arguing for or against climate change, but the hurricane season has been exceptionally mild. Also, the Antarctic ice filed is growing. When did warm water cause a shortage of fish? I would have a greater belied in GW/CC if someone other than Gore was behind it.
