Gore Commits Global Warming Gaffe on ‘Larry King Live’
Ordinary normal Americans recite the Pledge of Allegiance for love of country. Former Vice President Al Gore recites Pledge of the Climate Crisis with the same zeal. The only difference is Americans tend to get the Pledge of Allegiance right every time.
For the last year leading up to the much-hyped “Live Earth” event, Gore has been making the rounds to various media outlets reciting the same message – global warming bad, government regulation good. However, on the July 5 “Larry King Live” show, Gore committed a global warming slip up.
Gore told CNN’s Larry King he was urging viewers to pressure their governments “to sign and join an international treaty within two years that cuts global warming pollution by 90 percent in the developing countries and by more than half worldwide in time for the next generation to inherit a healthy earth.”
But that’s not what the Gore seven-point pledge actually asked for and that’s where he screwed up. Developing nations wouldn’t have to reduce global warming pollution by 90 percent. Developed countries would – like the United States.
Otherwise, his string of media appearances was vintage apocalyptical Gore. “A huge area of snow near the South Pole, an area the size of California, has been melting. The scientists are practically screaming from the rooftops on this,” Gore said on the July 6 CBS “The Early Show.”
Gore also gave a last-minute surprise by waiting until the day before his “Live Earth” concerts to announce he would indeed be hosting an event on The Mall, specifically the National Museum of the American Indian, in Washington, D.C. GOP Senators had blocked efforts for him to host one of the concerts on the Capitol Lawn in March. “This new location at the Indian museum does not require congressional approval and thus Gore could have done at any time,” said one GOP staffer on Gore’s last minute ploy.”
