In an interview which aired Sunday on ABC News’ This Week, climate change Cassandra and former Vice President Al Gore stood by his 2006 warning that “the world would reach a point of no return within 10 years” unless nations took drastic measures.
“[S]ome changes, unfortunately, have already been locked in place,” Gore said. “Sea level increases are going to continue to matter what we do now. But, we can prevent much larger sea level increases. Much more rapid increases in temperature. The heatwave was in Europe. Now it’s in the Arctic. We’re seeing huge melting of the ice there. So, the warnings of the scientists 10 years ago, 20 years ago, 30 years ago, unfortunately, were accurate”
“Here’s the good news,” Gore told the host. “In the Democratic contest for the presidential nominations this year, virtually all of the candidates agree this is either the top issue or one of top two issues.”
That’s because climate change fear-mongering affords the Democrats an opportunity for the massive expansion of state power and control in order to “mobilize” against the always-impending apocalypse.
