Gore laments the ‘formidable denial’ about climate change by ‘some smart people’

Calif. Gov. Jerry Brown was a guest on Al Gore’s sixth-annual “24 Hours of Reality” broadcast, a program that at least during the final hour did not appear to offer much in the way of dissenting views. Gore, one of the world’s most prominent climate activists, met with Trump on Monday, offering hope to some environmentalists. On Tuesday, Gore seemed to commiserate with Brown about ways to break through the “formidable denial” demonstrated by “some smart people.” Brown, for his part, agreed they can be tough to convert. “But,” he said, “there are many more people, by tens of millions, that as reflected in the surveys are open to this idea. And they know the climate is changing.”

  1. “And they know the climate is changing”

    Well, duh. The climate has never been stable and is a human invention. Of course it’s changing. It has always changed, it is changing, and it will keep changing as long as the planet has an atmosphere and an active sun.

    Climate is, after all, the average of weather in a specific area over a specific amount of time. It’s not a natural thing. It’s humans who have defined it.

  2. I’m amazed that some otherwise intelligent folk are so accepting of the poor collection, archival and protection of climate data. And, that such an empirically sacriligious activity could be considered as predictive of anything, let alone the most chaotic system known in our little mudball aka the 3rd rock from the sun.

  3. Al Gore is stuck on corruption, as a lifetime occupation. He has a climate racket going on, raking in millions from unsuspecting but willing marks, much like 1800s snake-oil salesmen from the dusty old West.
