Al Gore is famous for his rabid stance on global warming, global cooling, climate change, whatever they are calling it today. He has always tried to use his opinions as a basis for science. Gore finally met his match.
The altercation occurred at a CNN town hall featuring Gore and Anderson Cooper. Suddenly, Tangier Island Mayor James Eskridge, who is also a local crabber, stood up to Gore and stated: “I’m a commercial crabber and I’ve been working the Chesapeake Bay for 50 plus years. I have a crab house business out on the water, and the water level is the same as it was when the place was built in 1970. I’m not a scientist, but I am a keen observer and if sea level rises are occurring, why am I not seeing signs of it?”
The Daily Caller reports that Tangier Island lost 66% of its land to erosion since 1950. Eskridge is currently trying to work with President Trump to build a sea wall to stop the island from disappearing.
CNN took the story and claimed that the island is “disappearing” because of climate change, implying that Gore was correct in this debate. They fail to mention the fact that erosion is occurring from storm and waves. The actual sea levels are not going up at all.
All we are seeing is a case of natural erosion from waterways, not global warming. Despite the lack of evidence around global warming, many Democrats believe in it as if it were the gospel.
This kind of mentality is dangerous because Liberals are claiming “The science is settled,” but it clearly is not. If they are not willing to look into it further because they already have their minds made up then it is impossible to get any accurate scientific information regarding the climate.
Most Conservatives argue that we should just do the tests. Scientific evidence is needed to prove such a bold claim, and the Left is unwilling to comply. Their refusal could be because, as we previously mentioned, their minds are made up. The more likely answer is they know they will be proven wrong, so they are trying to stop people from looking into it further.
Democrats are reaching a level of insanity with the way they attack “climate deniers”; people who want the evidence. For example, everyone is familiar with Bill Nye the “Science Guy.” In an interview, Bill Nye suggested that people that don’t believe in climate change need to go to prison, according to The Washington Times.
Al Gore and the Progressive Left have been pushing the false-narrative of climate change for decades. Do you think the world is waking up to this pseudo-science scheme?
During an interview, he was asked if the climate deniers should be jailed. Nye’s response was: “Was it appropriate to jail the guys from Enron?” He continued, “We’ll see what happens. Was it appropriate to jail people from the cigarette industry who insisted that this addictive product was not addictive, and so on?”
His opinion is clear as day, and he has become an icon of sorts for the Left, so this isn’t a fringe case. We need to do the scientific work and prove once and for all that human activity is not causing climate change.
