Chris Wallace, the host of “Fox News Sunday” confronted ex-VP, Al Gore on his 2006 assertion that unless drastic measure was taken humankind would encounter a “true planetary emergency” in the next ten years.
“Unless we take drastic measures the world would reach a point of no return within 10 years,” which Gore stated would instigate a “true planetary crisis” as a result of man-made global warming.
Wallace indicated that 11 years have passed since Gore made the assertion in his 2006 movie “An Inconvenient Truth,” and there doesn’t appear to be a global emergency.
Do you think Gore would admit to his mistakes? Definitely not!

This was his reply:
“Well, we have seen a decline in emissions on a global basis. For the first time, they’ve stabilized and started to decline. So some of the responses for the last 10 years have helped, but unfortunately and regrettably a lot of serious damage has been done.Greenland, for example, has been losing one cubic kilometer of ice every single day. I went down to Miami and saw fish from the ocean swimming in the streets on a sunny day. The same thing was true in Honolulu just two days ago, just from high tides because of the sea level rise now.We are going to suffer some of these consequences, but we can limit and avoid the most catastrophic if we accelerate the pace of change that’s now beginning.”
Gore also said that the directors of his future sequel movie “An Inconvenient Sequel” are incorporating a new segment at the finale to account for President Donald Trump’s pull out from the Paris treaty on climate change.
Al Gore’s first film “An Inconvenient Truth” has been credited with actualizing the global warming issue. The movie encouraged environmentalists and possibly played a role in the Obama administration’s failed attempt to pass cap-and-trade legislation back in 2009.
However, most(if not all) of Gore’s claims in his 2006 film never happened.
