Anyone who is old enough to remember the 1970s may recall that many scientists believed we were on the verge of another ice age. Any day now! Trust the science! Consensus!
In the 1980s, that morphed into global warming. Evil, sinful mankind was emitting carbon into the atmosphere, it was burning a big hole in our ozone layer, and snowfalls would soon be a thing of the past. Former vice president Al Gore was one of the biggest scam artists of the movement for many years.
This has kind of become a meme every time a major blizzard impacts a large part of the country — and deservedly so. We have constant living proof that Al Gore never knew what the hell he was talking about.
That said, the man has become suspiciously silent over the past few years. Even so, leftists still hold him up as an authoritative figure on climate science.
If you just give Al Gore a bunch of money to purchase “carbon credits,” he’d plant a tree or something and it would absolve you of your global warming sins. This meme is a real treat for all of us who were treated to blistering criticism from the left by pointing out that Al Gore is a con artist.
Gore once predicted that snowfalls would become a thing of the past if we didn’t act immediately to become socialists. “No more snow in the Arctic by 2013!” Yeah… how’s that working out for everyone this week?
