With Democrats about to take control of the House of Representatives, the alarm is now sounding even louder about doing something about climate change. With the renewed push to force a new “green” agenda into existence comes the resurgence of Al Gore, who continues to make the media rounds:
“We have rallied, as human beings, to do what’s right. But the chips are down now, and we have to get serious about confronting this global emergency.”

Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress, wishes Gore had been elected in 2000 so things would be different, or something:
We could have had this man as President. Imagine if we'd acted on the climate crisis 18 years ago. https://t.co/lzsdRzJu8r

Considering the dates on some of Gore’s doomsday predictions have expired, this entire discussion should be moot:
If we'd acted on it 18 years ago, maybe the seas wouldn't have risen in 2008 and engulfed our coastal cities as predicted.

Acted how exactly?
What 18 years ago could we have done to impact whatever it is you are convinced is happening? https://t.co/Sawvg0nQaQ

Millions of dollars in sham Carbon Credits cash wouldn’t have flowed into his pockets? https://t.co/C9iKvb0SJw

Nobody should weep for Al Gore, because he’s doing just fine for himself.
