2019s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord: Al Gore. The former vice president and Nobel Peace Prize winner is an inconvenient truth essay in the public eye whether you like it or not.
2019s announcement last month that the U. At least one environmentalist is capitalizing on President Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord: Al Gore. Since Trump’s announcement last month that the U. Paris climate pact, Gore has been on a media blitz to reprise his role as the prophet of planetary doom. The timing couldn’t be better for him. Next week, Gore’s new film, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, will debut. Al Gore is at it again, promoting his alarmist documentary An Inconvenient Sequel.
Al Gore at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, in January. The former vice president resurfaces, with another round of familiar apocalyptic predictions. President Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord: Al Gore. 2006 documentary that won two Oscars and became the rallying cry for climate-change activists around the world. Gore has mostly avoided politics and kept a relatively low public profile the past several years, heading up the Climate Reality Project, a nonprofit he founded on the heels of the movie’s success. But Trump’s presidency is now breathing new life into this aging climate crusader, and he is poised to play the Climate Good Cop to Trump’s Bad Climate Cop.
For a fleeting moment while watching the interview, one could reminisce about the era when Democrats didn’t sound off-the-rails hysterical, as Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders often do. Gore still has his signature monotone, robotic cadence that can temporarily lull one into believing anything he says. But then he quickly pivots to the same apocalyptic rhetoric that made him a climate cult hero after his failed presidential bid. 110 million tons of heat-trapping global-warming pollution up into the sky every day as if it’s an open sewer. You don’t have to rely on the virtually unanimous opinion of the scientific community anymore.
