Al Gore calls for treating climate skeptics like racists

Al Gore calls climate skepticism the same as racism and calls for treating skeptics the same.

“There came a time when friends or people you work with or people you were in clubs with — you’re much younger than me so you didn’t have to go through this personally — but there came a time when racist comments would come up in the course of the conversation and in years past they were just natural. Then there came a time when people would say, ‘Hey, man why do you talk that way, I mean that is wrong. I don’t go for that so don’t talk that way around me. I just don’t believe that.’ That happened in millions of conversations and slowly the conversation was won. We have to win the conversation on climate.”

In other words, no expression of skepticism is to be permitted, in any conversation.

I’ll have more to say about this later today or tomorrow.

    Science is never settled and there is ALWAYS room for skepticism. Science is the only tool we have to investigate our natural world. We can not risk damaging the only tool we have by squelching legitimate skepticism. Mr. Gore and other career politicians would do well to understand this and leave the science to the scientific community.

    So it’s kinda like when Al Gore Sr. voted against civil rights?
