Apparently, Algore’s plans on making eleventy billions dollars off of the global warming racket are not happening as quickly as he anticipated (his estimated net worth is estimated at a paltry $200 million) so he has upped the rhetoric to get more people over to his side so they can invest in his green energy companies or carbon credits, or whatever snake oil he happens to be peddling today. His latest accomplice in this endeavor is leftist boy wonder Ezra Klein of the Washington Post. In an exclusive interview, which rates very high on the unintentionally funny scale, Algore says that he is more optimistic than ever that the people will take the necessary steps to combat the "climate crisis." Out of all the craziness of the interview, this part in particular caught my attention, as Gore was discussing people who refuse to join his global warming cult:
EK: Give me the optimistic scenario on what happens next. If all goes well, what do the next few years look like on this issue?
AG: Well, I think the most important part of it is winning the conversation. I remember as a boy when the conversation on civil rights was won in the South. I remember a time when one of my friends made a racist joke and another said, hey man, we don’t go for that anymore. The same thing happened on apartheid. The same thing happened on the nuclear arms race with the freeze movement. The same thing happened in an earlier era with abolition. A few months ago, I saw an article about two gay men standing in line for pizza and some homophobe made an ugly comment about them holding hands and everyone else in line told them to shut up. We’re winning that conversation.
The conversation on global warming has been stalled because a shrinking group of denialists fly into a rage when it’s mentioned. It’s like a family with an alcoholic father who flies into a rage every time a subject is mentioned and so everybody avoids the elephant in the room to keep the peace. But the political climate is changing. Something like Chris Hayes’s excellent documentary on climate change wouldn’t have made it on TV a few years ago. And as I said, many Republicans who’re still timid on the issue are now openly embarrassed about the extreme deniers. The deniers are being hit politically. They’re being subjected to ridicule, which stings. The polling is going back up in favor of doing something on this issue. The ability of the raging deniers to stop progress is waning every single day.
Yes, Algore is a charlatan and overall terrible human being, but the best thing to do is mock him and have a ton of fun at his expense. There is no one better to do this than South Park’s Trey Parker and Matt Stone, as they did a few years ago. Here are a couple of short clips from an episode they did lampooning him. Of course, Parker and Stone’s humor can get a little raunchy at times, so if you’re kind of offended by that kind of toilet humor, well, you’ve been warned. Anyway, kick back, relax, have a few drinks, read the interview with Klein, and watch the clips. That will give you a full evening’s worth of entertainment. You’re welcome.
