Gore doesn't have the credentials to speak on anything science-related.

That may have been in jest. I mean, I always tell the climate alarmists to build a giant arc to avoid the flood when it comes - or move somewhere up in the mountains and leave the rest of us to die.

Hurry up, quick it's coming!

The seventh day adventists prepared years in advance for the rapture, you all need to start prepping for the global warming flood. Spend all of your money. Your life depends on it.

This is what happens after the conference. They did this for scientific reasons of course.

Climate protesters glue hands to road in Brisbane CBD

Video obtained by 9News shows two people lying in the middle of the road near a pedestrian crossing on Queen Street.

They had chained themselves together before glueing themselves to the bitumen about 7.30am.

Traffic was blocked for three hours as authorities worked to remove the pair, using chemicals to dissolve the super glue on their hands.

Al Gore to conduct climate leadership training in Brisbane

Former US Vice President Al Gore will visit Brisbane next year to conduct climate change leadership training for up to a 1000 people from across Australia and the Pacific.

The three-day event at the Brisbane Convention Centre 5 to 7 June 2019 – run by the Climate Reality Project – will see business and community leaders trained to be educators and take action with climate solutions, as the world moves to meet its commitments under the Paris Agreement.

...
“This major event will provide the skills for business and community leaders to influence the community to take action on climate change.

...
“Taking action now on climate change will not only help to keep global temperatures below dangerous levels, it is also an opportunity for businesses to get on the front foot as the world transitions to a low carbon economy,” Ms Enoch said.

“Embracing solutions to climate change will in many cases lead to more jobs, more prospects for businesses, and safer communities if we position ourselves to take advantage of global trends.”

Alan Jones slams QLD government for paying to bring Al Gore to Australia

Taxpayers will fork out more than $320,000 for the Climate Week conference, where form US vice president Al Gore will “communicate the urgency of the climate crisis”.

“It is not believable,” says Alan, “that the Queensland government can be so awash with money as to bring this hypocrite Al Gore to Australia for a conference.

“When so many important instruments of government are underfunded, when farmers can’t feed their cattle in Queensland, and $320,000 goes to waste on this shonk.”



He will need the funds for the massive electric bill he incurs at his home in Nashville. The average electrical use per home is 10,812 kwH per year. Gore's Nashville home used 230,889 kwH in the year shown below.

I would prefer Americans get that scam money that others, even if it's ole Mr. Global Warming liar Algore himself. I would encourage enterprising Americans who need the money to come up with some scam to get foreigners to part with their hard earned money to "save the planet."

That`s not what she said. Did you actually read it? When she said we`re like the world is going to end....the "we`re like" part of it kills your take on it. Nice try though. I can`t believe you`ve never heard a young person say that "we`re like" thing. Jeezus man!

Ocasio-Cortez called the fight to mitigate the effects of climate change her generation's "World War II."

"Millennials and Gen Z and all these folks that come after us are looking up, and we're like, 'The world is going to end in 12 years if we don't address climate change, and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?' " she said.


Not sure why you are having a problem here... it's pretty straightforward.

Everyone else understood what she said. The editor of the paper used that statement in the headline.

I thought the media was untrustworthy. So the headline writer understood the topic exactly?

Also- those electric bills were basically cherry-picked. Limabaugh came up with his bills but used the numbers from when the house was actually under construction. That is a vastly larger use of energy than actually running the house- especially since it included installing a crap ton of green energy technology that means the house would use less energy for its size.
IIRC Gore has admitted such, but says that he offsets his energy use via purchase of carbon credits.

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.
You are not wrong. He does the opposite of what he claims everyone else needs to do. All it really takes are a few abusers to ruin a message.
Case in point is Al Gore.
