'Democrats believe in “climate change” and “global warming” as though it were their religion, bristling at any attempt to discount the unproven ‘science’ behind it and becoming fighting mad when anyone (truthfully) calls all of it a hoax.
But then Leftists bring on most of the climate skepticism themselves because they frequently make bold predictions about the end of the world as we know it, only to see those predictions pass without incident, time and again.
What’s more, often their predictions look absurd in the face of data that show the opposite of what they claimed would happen.
Take former Vice President Al Gore, for example. He’s made a rather nice living out of his role as a global warming/climate change snake oil salesman. In 2008 while riding high from his Oscar-winning 2006 ‘documentary’ “An Inconvenient Truth: The Crisis of Global Warming,” Gore told an audience in Germany that “the entire North ‘polarized’ cap will disappear in five years.”
But, as the global warming/climate change skeptic site Watts Up With That noted in December, not only is the ‘polarized’ ice cap still “inconveniently” around, but it has expanded.
“As you can see…Arctic sea ice came nowhere close to disappearing during the summer minimum, and has rebounded to be within 2 standard deviations in the last few weeks,” the site reported just a few months ago.
But of course, Gore isn’t the only Leftist making these outrageous “end of the world,” “doom and gloom” global warming/climate change claims. In the past few weeks, new Democratic champions of the lie – 2020 Democratic presidential contender Robert “Beto” O’Rourke and freshman “Democratic Socialist” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-[like]-Cortez (N.Y.) have made similar statements.'
