Al “Bore” Gore To Hold Climate Change Snoozefest
Al “Bore” Gore To Hold Climate Change Snoozefest
Attention all insomniacs! Former Vice President Al Gore is thinking of you and hosting a 24 hour television special on climate change. He’s even lined up a galaxy of has beens to send you off to the land of nod. Well, that’s just in case Gore the Bore isn’t enough. Yawn, I am sleepy already.
We look to The Washington Times for the details:
The former vice president on Tuesday announced the eighth annual “24 Hours of Reality: Protect Our Planet, Protect Ourselves,” which will be televised in more than 125 countries and streamed live online at 24HoursofReality.org, according to a news release.
The special will include performances by Moby, the Goo Goo Dolls, Sting & Shaggy, Jeff Goldblum & the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, among others, as well as celebrity appearances by Jaden Smith, Bill Nye, Téa Leoni, Claire Danes and Cody Simpson.
When you read eighth annual, did you think “What the? I never heard of this televised Ambien before.” Well, that’s what I thought. And, Moby? “You’re too old, let it go its over, nobody listens to Techno.” With apologies to Slim Shady. The GooGoo Dolls? Bill Nye? Yeah, because a Mechanical and Aerospace Engineer is trained in Climatology…not. C’mon, Al. Really, he makes it too easy to mock him.
Don’t think Al Gore is a bore? Watch this short clip from a few years ago:
Hey, wake up. Told you so.
So, here is what Gore has to say about this upcoming Snoreathon, again from the Washington Times:
“Our health depends on the health of the planet,” Mr. Gore said in a statement. “The climate crisis is not an abstract issue; it has direct impacts on us and the people we love the most. I’m looking forward to exploring the climate and health connection on this year’s 24 Hours broadcast and to discussing how we can take bold and ambitious action to ensure that future generations can live long, healthy lives full of opportunity and promise.”
The special will air live from Los Angeles starting Monday, Dec. 3 at 6 p.m. local time.
Why do people think Al Gore has any credibility on this at all, especially after:
Twelve years ago, “An Inconvenient Truth” was foist upon the world to much acclaim. Last year, “An Inconvenient Sequel” was released and received with far less enthusiasm. Photo credit: Paramount Pictures
Inconveniently, Al Gore predicted more frequent and intense hurricanes in his first film. Twelve years hence, and the frequency has dropped. And, remember that Gore said the polar bears were drowning. Polar bears be doing just fine, thank you very much. Actually, in the case brought in Britain, the judge said that there were nine scientific inaccuracies in the film. You can read the article from 2007 here. And, then there was “An Inconvenient Sequel”. The Wall Street Journal wrote:
They say the sequel is always worse than the original, but Al Gore’s first film set the bar pretty low. Eleven years ago, “An Inconvenient Truth” hyped global warming by relying more on scare tactics than science. This weekend Mr. Gore is back with “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.” If the trailer is any indication, it promises to be more of the same.
The former vice president has a poor record. Over the past 11 years Mr. Gore has suggested that global warming had caused an increase in tornadoes, that Mount Kilimanjaro’s glacier would disappear by 2016, and that the Arctic summers could be ice-free as soon as 2014. These predictions and claims all proved wrong.
There is so much more that Gore got wrong and gets wrong. He should make like the movie “Frozen” and “Let It Go”. Don’t get me wrong. I am not a climate change denier. The climate has changed and will always continue to change. But, I believe that it has a lot more to do with our orbit around the Sun than man and fossil fuels.
Al Gore should Dingell his Norwood and go get his second chakra released again.
But for you my friends, on December 3, 2018, get in your favorite jammies, pull up your weighted blanket and prepare to sleep, quietly and blissfully.

Wait a minute, Jaden Smith will be featured?!?!? That changes everything. I am definitely going to change my mind based on what a 20-yr old punk hollywood kid says.
Yawn, I am sleepy already.
Actually, that’s not the boredom, that’s the 20F drop in temperature in the room.
I wonder if this little event will be met with a massive snowstorm as so many Gore AGW events in the past have?
24 Hours of Reality
Can we sue for fraudulent advertising? Because this will be anything BUT.
televised in more than 125 countries
So… all but a few, then? Can we get a list of those few, please?
Of course, what this really means is he paid someone to broadcast it over a handful of satellites with global coverage. It doesn’t mean it will get WATCHED in most of those places.
it has direct impacts on us and the people we love the most
Isn’t that redundant for Gore?
Climate change isn’t happening the way the alarmists claim. Period. None of those who tout it incessantly live as if it is happening. (Though, admittedly, Gore’s mansion is far from any encroaching seas.) I can no longer trust any historical temperature measurements because they’ve all been “adjusted” to some extent by the alarmists. Their models have been proven wrong again and again. And, the actual trend (which they have yet to be able to adjust so they can “who you gonna believe, us or your lying eyes?”) is for a mini (we hope) ice age.
I need to look up where these people live. So, when the glaciers come I can burn them in my firepit to stay warm.
