Gore: Climate Change Is The New Nazi

Speaking in London today, former Vice-President Al Gore compared the struggle against climate change to the struggle against the Nazis.

Gore said, "Winston Churchill aroused this nation in heroic fashion to save civilisation in World War II.”

I am shocked Gore actually came out and said it. But all things considered I am not surprised.

Climate change (formerly referred to as global warming) is a huge part of the left wing mantra. Those who might be skeptical of either man's impact on climate change or what we ought to do about it are likened to Nazis.

Let's recall what Ellen Goodman of The Boston Globe wrote in February 2007:

I would like to say we're at a point where global warming is impossible to deny. Let's just say that global warming deniers are now on a par with Holocaust deniers, though one denies the past and the other denies the present and future.

Of course, it is worth noting that even Gore prefers to use the term climate change rather than global warming these days.

But climate change is such a generic term. Our climate is in constant change be it day to day or over seasons or over many centuries. Climate change does affect how we produce food, medicines, build our neighborhoods, the overall quality of our soil, water and atmosphere as well as plant and animal species.

Climate change presents challenges. But no weather system, no matter how harmful, can write a manifesto calling upon the rain to wipe out Jews from the face of the earth. Thus Gore's analogy is odious and has the effect of trivializing the Nazis reign of terror. His statement is irresponsible and does little to advance his cause.
