Gore Wrong Again!

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JUNE 4, 2019

         COMMENCEMENT SEASON HAS ENDED, AND AS USUAL MOST OF THE SPEAKERS WERE SECULAR PROGRESSIVES.

         ONE THAT DESERVES SPECIAL ATTENTION IS FORMER VICE PRESIDENT AL GORE, WHO TOLD GRADUATING STUDENTS AND FACULTY AT HARVARD THERE IS AN “ASSAULT ON SCIENCE”
 THAT THREATENS “THE CAPACITY OF THE HUMAN SPECIES TO ENDURE” ON PLANET EARTH.

         EVERETT PIPER, A FORMER PRESIDENT OF OKLAHOMA WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY WROTE ABOUT IT IN A COLUMN FOR THE WASHINGTON TIMES. PIPER NOTES THAT GORE CLAIMED REASON, SCIENCE AND RATIONAL DEBATE ARE UNDER THREAT FROM WHAT HE CALLED AN “IDEOLOGY OF AUTHORITARIANISM” BY THOSE WHO DISAGREE WITH HIM AND HIS POLITICAL AGENDA.

         IT SHOULD BE REMEMBERD IT WAS GORE WHO PREDICTED IN 2006 THAT WE HAD JUST TEN YEARS TO SAVE THE PLANET AND THAT THE ARCTIC WOULD BE FREE OF ICE BY THE SUMMER OF 2014. THE PLANET AND ICE IN THE ARCTIC ARE STILL HERE.

         THE QUESTION IS NOT JUST WHY HARVARD WOULD INVITE GORE TO SPEAK, GIVEN HIS BOGUS PREDICTIONS AND BAD SCIENCE, BUT WHY WOULD ANYONE LISTEN TO HIM? SUCH IS THE STATE OF OUR MODERN UNIVERSITIES. FOR THE FACTS ON SO-CALLED CLIMATE CHANGE, VISIT CLIMATEDEPOT.COM. I’M CAL THOMAS.
