Al Gore: Climate Change Skeptics Should Listen to Mother Nature

Al Gore: Climate Change Skeptics Should Listen to Mother Nature

By    |   Tuesday, 18 September 2018 02:46 PM

People who deny that climate change has added to the severity of hurricanes, wildfires, and other natural disasters in recent years should heed what Mother Nature is saying to them, former Vice President Al Gore said Tuesday.

"Every night on the television news is like a nature hike through the book of Revelations," Gore told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell. "It matters less what I would say to them, or more importantly, what the scientists would say to them, than what Mother Nature is saying to them."

Hurricane Florence hit the Carolinas at the same time the Philippines was slammed by Typhoon Mangkhut, said Gore, and Hawaii also was recently hit by Tropical Storm Olivia. Further, the largest fire in California's history hit this summer.

Meanwhile, skeptics have ridiculed claims that climate change is behind the recent spate of strong storms, including Rush Limbaugh, who who said before Florence hit that the issue was driving up "hysteria."

"Hurricanes and hurricane forecasting is much like much else that the left has gotten its hands on, and they politicize these things," Limbaugh said. "Climate change is the politics of hurricanes. The forecast and the destruction, potential doom and gloom is all to heighten the belief in climate change. My experience is that the storms are bad; you don't want to get into arguments over degrees."
