Because the world isn’t paying attention generously enough, Al Gore is leaving behind the “Alliance for Climate Protection” and replacing it with the Climate Reality Project:

Former Vice President Al Gore launched a new campaign Tuesday aimed at exposing the “full truth, scope, scale and impact of the climate crisis.”

The campaign, the Climate Reality Project, is organizing a Sept. 14 event and presentation focused on extreme weather and climate change.

For the event, Gore will unveil a new presentation modeled after the one he gave in his film “An Inconvenient Truth.” Twenty-four different people will deliver the presentation in 24 time zones around the world.

Great, that means it’s going to snow on September 14th.

Gore’s renewed push is in no small way an attempt to address growing number of people who aren’t buying what Al is selling:

NEW YORK, July 11 (UPI) — Three-quarters of Americans say natural disasters are on the increase, but fewer than ever believe the climate is heating up, a new poll finds.
[…]
Only 44 percent say they “believe the theory” that carbon dioxide emissions are warming the Earth, down from 51 percent in 2009 and 71 percent in 2007, but most movement has been into the “not sure” column.

That’s why Gore has the “it’s colder because of global warming” angle covered too, which has turned the entire movement into a raucous self-parody. Under the rules of “science” as set by Al Gore, there is no climate model that does anything other than prove him correct, and people have caught on.

But there’s too much potential money in it to stop now. The UN recently put the price tag of “greening” the entire world by 2050 at $76 trillion. That’s a lot of loot. Connect the dots.
