Ten years ago Al Gore said the world would end because of climate change.
Today is the day that climate change entrepreneur, and former US Vice President, Al Gore warned us would be the beginning of a global emergency.
Mr Gore told his supporters a decade ago that the world had until 27th January 2016 to end its addiction to fossil fuels or the it would come to an end. Gore did not specify what householders might expect to happen today, but he was clear that this would be the end.
The claim was part of the marketing campaign for his hit documentary “An Inconvenient Truth", which he maintains was not a cheap attempt to make money off the green frenzy. Although, by sheer coincidence, it did make him a pile of cash.
Shortly before the film’s release Gore warned today would see "a true planetary emergency." Once again, he offered few details of the problems you might face on your weekly visit to Walmart.
The real Inconvenient Truth for Mr. Gore is that his dire prediction was wrong!
