Chesapeake Bay Mayor Smacks Down Al Gore on Global Warming With One Question
If I had a nickel for every time Al Gore sputtered retarded claims about climate change, I'd probably have like 20 dollars or something (see Al Gore Blames Man-Made 'Climate Change' for Brexit). Sadly, the world doesn't give us money in exchange for suffering the left's stupidity. But here's something the world has given us: fresh video evidence of Al Gore getting his butt handed to him by someone who knows a thing or two about a thing or two.
Gore recently claimed the tides are rising in the Chesapeake Bay. An unstoppable doom ensuing from climate change. You know who disagrees? James Eskridge. He's the Mayor of a town on an island in the Chesapeake Bay.
MAYOR ESKRIDGE: I’m a commercial crabber, and I’ve been working the Chesapeake Bay for fifty-plus years. And I have a crab house business out on the water. And water level is the same it was when the place was built in 1970. I’m not a scientist but I’m a keen observer, and if sea levels rises are occurring, why am I not seeing signs of it? Our island is disappearing, but it’s because of erosion and not because of sea level rising, unless we get a seawall, we will lose our island. But, back to the question, why am I not seeing signs of the sea level rising?
AL GORE: Well arguments about science aren’t necessarily going to be any comfort to you and I’m sorry for what you’re going through. It won’t necessarily do you any good for me to tell you that the scientists do say that the sea level is rising in the Chesapeake Bay.
This touches on something global warming/cooling/change climate alarmists don't get. People have been hearing the same "the sky is falling" stories for decades. Al Gore's Earth in the Balance first came out in 1992, and the sky was falling for years before that. Yet here we are...
So when we point out the flaw in the models, it's because we've been bought and paid for by BIG OIL! Kidding. It's because there are actually decades of flaws in the models (see Climate Expert: ‘Global Warming is Far from ‘Settled Science’…” and Climate Models Used for Last Six Decades Definitively Proven False).
But don't take it from me, listen for yourself below. Courtesy of an actual scientist.
