Al Gore Global Warming Quotes: 5 Examples of Former VP Waffling On Climate Change

Tuesday, 25 Nov 2014 09:43 PM

Al Gore global warming claims sometimes cause the former vice president to backpedal. However, he usually does it by making it look more like a readjustment.


Here are five examples of Gore changing his tune when it comes to thoughts on climate change:

1. Gore had to backtrack on his claims that carbon dioxide was the main cause of global warming until 2001. Studies revealed that methane and black soot have a more profound impact on climate change than previously thought. Carbon dioxide is only responsible for about 40 percent of the warming, so Gore admitted to Newsweek it would be difficult to convince people of the need to limit carbon emissions.

2. Gore said changing the focus on what causes climate change would now involve widened strategies. “Simply laying out the facts won’t work,” he confessed. So he decided to move his arguments from science to faith, relying on religious programs for different Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Hindu groups. He wants to change the way people think instead of using scientific evidence, argued Alex Jones of Infowars.com.

3. Gore admitted he was wrong on the Al Gore global warming technique in his book, “The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change.” Using political techniques to “sharply reduce emissions of global warming” wasn’t the only way. Using methods to adapt to climate change might also be necessary. Supporters say this only shows his willingness to admit errors and think of new ideas. But Matthew E. Kahn, a UCLA researcher, says Gore still focuses on governmental remedies instead of relying on free market innovations as well.

4. The “Climategate” scandal had Gore trying to minimize confirmed reports that top scientists had intentionally manipulated evidence to fit their wild claims of global warming with the Climate Research Unit in England, which processes the largest temperature data in the world. Gore told CNN that critics were merely taking the reports “out of context.”


5. The Al Gore global warming campaign needed some real waffling after he claimed that scientists were proposing a Category 6 hurricane to add to the current 1-to-5 scale. The National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center had no such plans. The National Weather Service reported category 5 includes hurricanes with winds of 157 miles per hour and anything above.
