Al Gore Compares Global Warming To Great Political Struggles of Humanity

Posted: July 13, 2017 at 12:57 pm   /   by

Global warming alarmist Al Gore likened climate change to humanity’s great struggles, like the abolition of slavery, apartheid and nuclear proliferation.

In a speech to the EcoCity World Summit in Melbourne, Australia, Gore argued that combating global warming was in fact the great moral fight of today, a struggle that was,

in the tradition of all the great moral causes that have improved the circumstances of humanity throughout our history. The abolition of slavery, woman’s suffrage and women’s rights, the civil rights movement and the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa, the movement to stop the toxic phase of nuclear arms race and more recently the gay rights movement.

This wouldn’t be the first time the former Vice President, and failed presidential candidate has drawn the parallel between global warming and civil rights.

In a ceremony back in June he said:

The climate movement should be seen in the context of the great moral causes that have transformed and improved the outlook for humanity. It was wrong to allow slavery to continue, it was wrong to deny women the right to vote, it was wrong to discriminate on the basis of skin color or who you fell in love with.

Back in a 2013 interview with The Washington Post, Gore likened climate change “deniers” to alcoholic fathers who fly into a rage when confronted with their problem.

The conversation on global warming has been stalled because a shrinking group of denialists fly into a rage when it’s mentioned. It’s like a family with an alcoholic father who flies into a rage every time a subject is mentioned and so everybody avoids the elephant in the room to keep the peace.

As Gore tours the world promoting “An Inconvenient Sequel,” the follow-up to his 2006 documentary on global warming, you can bet he will continue pushing this particular narrative, as he has amassed a person fortune peddling climate change alarmism. It would appear that he is far more interested in breaking the proverbial bank, then he is about breaking socials chains, or crashing through glass ceilings. Fear sells though, and he’s literally banking on it.
