Adding to his history of wildly exaggerated claims, Al Gore is comparing climate change “deniers” to the Uvalde, Texas, cops who loitered in the hallway of the Robb Elementary School during the horrific mass shooting on May 24.
In a “Meet the Press” interview set to air on Sunday, Bill Clinton’s vice president asserted, “You know the climate deniers are really in some ways similar to all of those almost 400 law enforcement officers in Uvalde, Texas, who were waiting outside an unlocked door while the children were being massacred. They heard the screams, they heard the gunshots, and nobody stepped forward.”
Gore, 74, who has prospered from global warming activism, continued: “And God bless those families who suffered so much. And law enforcement officials tell us that’s not typical of what law enforcement usually does. And confronted with this global emergency, what we’re doing with our inaction, and failing to walk through the door and stop the killing is not typical of what we are capable of as human beings. We do have the solutions. And I think these extreme events that are getting steadily worse and more severe are really beginning to change minds.”
The loser of the 2000 presidential election to George W. Bush in a recount dispute that reached the U.S. Supreme Court, Gore added, ironically, that “We have to have unity as a nation to come together and stop making this a political football. It shouldn’t be a partisan issue.”

Gore’s remarks sound like a publicist or a sloganeering activist pre-packaged it for him in time for the NBC interview with no thought as to how disrespectful it was to the mourning Uvalde families.
According to NBC News in reporting on Gore’s commentary, “Climate emergencies are unfolding in most parts of the world. Areas in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia are sweltering under extreme heat, with record-breaking temperatures baking regions of the world already grappling with wildfires and severe drought.”

This type of fear-mongering rhetoric is nothing new, however, for the high-profile Democrat who won a Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his efforts to fight global warming primarily through his 2006 Oscar-winning, doom-and-gloom documentary “An Inconvenient Truth.”
In the past, Gore — who has a much larger carbon footprint than the average American — has compared climate change to such events like the 2008 economic crisis, the struggle for civil rights, Pearl Harbor, Dunkirk, the Battle of the Bulge, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the rise of fascism in the 1930s, the Daily Mail recalled.

In December 2009, “Al Gore… told the U.N. climate conference that new data suggests the Arctic polar ice cap may disappear in the summertime as soon as five to seven years from now,” CBS News reported at the time.
Gore has an estimated net worth of about $300 million “thanks to his green investment fund Generation Investment Management,” the Daily Mail added.

Back in 2016, he cashed in when the failed cable channel Current TV was sold to Qatar-owned Al Jazeera. Gore reportedly received $100 million for his 20 percent ownership stake when the station was bought by the oil-exporting country.
In the meantime, CCP-controlled China, which is said to be the world’s biggest polluter, has shown no signs of backing off from fossil fuels as it expands its empire all over the world, and as corporate America and government America, critics have argued, have looked the other way.
