Also, Al Gore equates civil rights for racial minorities to the imposition of same-sex “marriage.”
When Al Gore equates the need to oppose global warming with opposing slavery in the nineteenth century, you know he is assuming a lot of moral high ground. Obviously, he is trying to convince people that they can be self-righteous jerks like him if they join his crusade. He also wants climate change skeptics to feel like the targets of moral outrage, because they are being equated with sexists, racists, and “homophobes.”
Climate Depot reports, “Gore compares climate fight to slavery, gay rights & apartheid at Aussie summit.”
Former Vice President Al Gore likened the battle against “global warming” to previous social causes. Gore spoke to the EcoCity World Summit in Melbourne Australia on July 13th. The conference is being held from July 12-14.
“The abolition of slavery, woman’s suffrage and women’s rights, the civil rights movement and the anti apartheid movement in South Africa, the movement to stop the toxic phase of nuclear arms race and more recently the gay rights movement,” Gore said. “All these movements have one thing in common. they were all met with ferocious resistance,” Gore said on July 13th during his talk to the conference in Melbourne.[…]
Gore warned that “a future generation” will wonder how we could not have acted.
