Al Gore’s sequel opens — It’s bunk

Al Gore’s new movie opens today.

Leading off the article in The Washington Times:

“Nobody is more excited about Friday’s release of Al Gore’s sequel to An Inconvenient Truth than climate skeptic Marc Morano, which comes as an ill wind for the movement to stop global warming, not to mention Mr. Gore.

For months, Mr. Morano and his team have tracked the Democrat at advance screenings of An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, ambushing him with stunts such as asking him about his prediction that without drastic measures, the planet would reach a ‘point of no return’ in a decade.

The former vice president made that claim 11 years ago in An Inconvenient Truth, the Oscar-winning documentary whose warnings of climate doom propelled Mr. Gore to the forefront of the movement against global warming — while turning him into something of a punchline.

‘Al Gore is the gift that keeps on giving,’ said Mr. Morano, who runs the skeptical Climate Depot website, a project of the free-market Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow.”

CFACT was at the Sundance Film Festival and attended the premiere.

We posted an “inconvenient review” at CFACT.org.

Gore’s new movie is a self-centered diatribe that’s riddled with inaccuracies.  It is an embarrassment.

In 2012, Hurricane Sandy did some serious damage, including flooding New York’s South Ferry subway station.  Gore cites this as evidence for the extreme claims he made in his first film, An Inconvenient Truth.

This is false.

Hurricane Sandy was a product of nature, not man.  It would have struck just as hard whether we used energy or not  Its storm surge happened to coincide with high tide.  This was not a product of climate change, nor was it exacerbated by changes in sea levels which have not deviated meaningfully from the tiny one to three millimeters per year they have fluctuated since before the industrial revolution.

Gore’s exploitation of the pain inflicted by Hurricane Sandy to advance his agenda is shameless.  It is a prime example of the tricks and traps of the climate trade CFACT documents in our own film, Climate Hustle.

The Washington Times reports that many on the Left are embarrassed by Gore and his sequel.

They should be.
