Climate Depot's undercover agent caught up with Gore on Saturday January 21 at Sundance film festival in the late afternoon while Gore was exiting a private party at the Zoom restaurant in Park City Utah. Gore was trudging through the snow to his oversized Chevy Suburban SUV, when the undercover agent asked an inconvenient question of Gore.
Question: "Hey Al, I just saw [your sequel] 'Inconvenient'."
Gore: "Oh great, thank you!"
Question: "My friends make fun of me about the 10-year tipping point, what do I tell them?"
Gore: "Well, we gotta keep working." Gore then gives a momentary stare and then ignores the question and enters his "Executive Car Service" Chevy Suburban and departs on the snowy street.
A cheerful Gore waves as he exits...But moments later Gore seems startled that he is asked about his 10-year tipping point warning from 2006.
Danish statistician Dr. Bjorn Lomborg, the President of the Copenhagen Consensus Center: 'We will spend at least one hundred trillion dollars in order to reduce the temperature by the end of the century by a grand total of three tenths of one degree...the equivalent of postponing warming by less than four years...Again, that is using the UN's own climate prediction model.'
'If the U.S. delivers for the whole century on the President Obama's very ambitious rhetoric, it would postpone global warming by about eight months at the end of the century.'
'But here is the biggest problem: These miniscule benefits do not come free -- quite the contrary. The cost of the UN Paris climate pact is likely to run 1 to 2 trillion dollars every year.'
Kerry stated, we must act quickly “to avoid the catastrophe we will inevitably see if we allow carbon emissions to go up, and up, and up.” Moreover, he added, “We need to speed it up dramatically because we are in a race against time.” ...“What we do right now, today, matters,” Kerry told the audience. “We don’t get a second chance on this one.”
Nicholas Kristof OPED NYT - e Americans may be inadvertently killing her infant son. Climate change, disproportionately caused by carbon emissions from America, seems to be behind a severe drought that has led crops to wilt across seven countries in southern Africa. The result is acute malnutrition for 1.3 million children in the region, the United Nations says. Trump has repeatedly mocked climate change, once even calling it a hoax fabricated by China.
