Had he not gotten involved the denialist movement as it exits today would probably be less absurd.

His involvement made it easier for the right wing echo chamber to politicize the issue and seed the denialist movement belief system to low info cons.
What do you mean with the bold above?

Actually - I would like an explanation - which is why I asked.

If you want to answer - go ahead. Otherwise I will wait for an answer. But don't tell me what I know and don't know.

Cons have received alternate facts through the echo chamber that climate change is a hoax or a politically motivated conspiracy. This conspiracy became easier to formulate after Al Gore’s involvement due to the knee jerk reaction many cons have that any Democrat political position is automatically wrong.

Man Made Global Warming, then changed to "Climate Change" is a hoax, and a scam solely to make the elite more wealthy. Gore is a prime example of hypocrisy.

Climate change is real.

AGW, and the idea the climate is static, is the hoax.

So if Al Gore (and others) makes a prediction... multiple predictions... that turn out to be undeniably false - how is pointing that out politicizing the issue?
