Al Gore warned of a planetary holocaust in 1989. Twenty-five years on where’s the Ecological Kristallnacht?

An imagined result of global warming: it hasn’t happened yet.

Almost exactly 25 years ago Al Gore, a Democrat Senator at the time, warned us of an ecological Kristallnacht in the New York Times.

He didn’t use the term “denier” but he was talking up an unmistakable environmental holocaust.

Since then CO2 levels have risen 50ppm, and the global population increased by two billion. Yet much of the article could be rerun today and who would know? He could just change the dates…

      We’ve arrived in Canada exactly 33 years ago today. (Happy Anniversary to us). We were met by a snow storm and a white out. And of course, two weeks later, we all were wearing shorts and experiencing Toronto humidity for the first time. Al Gore should be forced to eat his words.

      • That happened when we came as well.

        Damn you, weather!

          Really, you guys should try San Diego.
          No snow, no humidity, with azure blue and cloudless sky’s, mostly because we are having a drought.

        I would never do anything on earth to try and harm anyone that posts on this website. I consider all of you the good guys. I do have a story to tell that is being blocked in America. That is all I will say.

      I so want to ask what you said…

      That reminds me of that joke of the foul mouthed parrot that gets put into the freezer as punishment and then notices a frozen turkey…
      Old joke, I’m sure you have all heard it.

    According to Saint CBC, David Suzuki, anybody who denies “global warming” should be put in jail!

    Global Warming must be hurting Suzuki’s what, 4 multi-million dollar properties in BC?

    And what about all the properties owned not only by Al Gore, but by his real estate company Gore Properties?

    Actually, humans were not meant to live in cold weather. Cold weather animals make their own omega-3 fat to insulate them. We do not.

      Then you haven’t met NDP MP Libby Davies!

  • Ottawa Eyes

    Damned Ontarians. They mistakenly thought Gore told them to vote for them, when he what he told them was to BUILD dykes!

    Being a Democrat means never having to say your sorry.

    I’m told that Mickey Mouse wears and Al Gore watch…..

    Predictive science is the perfect example of Garbage in Garbage out. I’m still waiting for my flying car, damned Jetsons.
