Al Gore still ‘training hundreds of mini-Gores’ – Uses bad weather events as proof of global warming

The big difference in the updated version of the slide show is that a decade ago, Gore mostly warned about what could happen. Now he shows what’s already happening.

Gore did discuss President Barack Obama, giving him high marks on climate issues for his first few months in office and for his entire second term, but accusing the president of abandoning the mission for the bulk of his first term, in part because of his “historic web of ties to the coal industry in Illinois.”

From now on, Gore says, every election needs to be a climate-change election. His goal is to put a political price on denial.

That’s why Gore came to Miami, to build his grass-roots slide-show army, to spread his message that climate change is here and now and scary as hell.

Gore’s avalanche of statistics and images is designed to overwhelm, to make the reality of climate change undeniable. The heat trapped in the atmosphere by greenhouse gases, he explains, is the equivalent of exploding 400,000 atomic bombs every day. “The denialists challenge everything I say, but they’ve never challenged that one—and believe me, they would if they could,” he added.
