It’s a wonder why this man is still taken seriously, given his shocking attempts at deception in his movie and his blatant hypocrisy. However, he is viewed as a prophet by those in the AGW crowd, and people do listen to him. This time, he has drawn an insulting parallel between global warming skeptics and racism.
Reporter: I think that’s why it’s a little bit different than racism.
Gore: But I think it’s the same where the moral component is concerned.
Skeptics are equally as morally reprehensible as racists? Yet, Gore displays the same bigotry he describes when he labels skeptics as “deniers”, for having a different perspective on the science.
As well as making this ridiculous comparison, he provides this little insight.
You have to win the conversation, and that means challenging the climate deniers, it means asserting your beliefs. It means confronting candidates and elected officials with the depth of your convictions and the strength of your passion.
He runs a lot on faith, doesn’t he? Unfortunately for him, that has no bearing on how nature works.
The sycophantic, cheer-leading reporter also provides a bit of an insight.
And it’s difficult to confront the denial facts that people spew out.
Maybe, just putting it out there, that is because they are valid arguments. Oh no. Now I’m a racist. It’s cringeworthy to watch, but it is worth noting the interviewer’s interesting perspective on the 800 year lag in the Vostok ice cores, who seems to think the heat and carbon record speak for themselves, and that the debate is over.
