Al Gore: Warmists ‘winning the conversation’ — Calif. Gov: Warmists ‘on losing end of contest of ideas’

Ozone Al vs. Gov. Moonbeam… who’s right?

Salon reports on Al Gore’s WaPo interview from yesterday:

The conversation on global warming has been stalled because a shrinking group of denialists fly into a rage when it’s mentioned. It’s like a family with an alcoholic father who flies into a rage every time a subject is mentioned and so everybody avoids the elephant in the room to keep the peace. But the political climate is changing. Something like Chris Hayes’s excellent documentary on climate change wouldn’t have made it on TV a few years ago. And as I said, many Republicans who’re still timid on the issue are now openly embarrassed about the extreme deniers. The deniers are being hit politically. They’re being subjected to ridicule, which stings. The polling is going back up in favor of doing something on this issue. The ability of the raging deniers to stop progress is waning every single day.

  1. They are both right. Al is right because they are only having conversations with other warmists. They won’t engage skeptics. And Moonbeam is right because this isn’t about ideas, it is about real world data. The data do not support the idea of AGW.

  2. “Raging deniers”? I don’t remember any deniers screaming about the sea levels NOT rising, or screaming we WON’T be burned alive by global warming.

  3. They’re both idiots so it’s hard to support either one. On this topic, though, I hope Governor Brown is closer to right than Senator Gore.
    But they’re both still idiots.
