Al Gore's Climate Film Flops - Earth Temps Cooler Now Than When He Won Nobel Prize

Tyler Durden's picture

Via StockBoardAsset.com,

Climate alarmist Al Gore's second film, ‘An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power’ failed to resonate with Americans.

The documentary dropped to 18th over the August 11-13 weekend grossing under $2.3 million since its August 04 release.

Per Newsbusters.org:

Media corporation Viacom pushed the film onto its 700 million subscribers with “An Inconvenient Week” starting July 31, with many of its networks promoting the film. Its support for Gore’s film included an MTV town hall event with the former politician.Two days before the week-long promotion began, Viacom’s blog posted “Four Reasons to Go See Al Gore’s Hopeful, Compelling” film in which it called Gore a “climate change folk hero.”

Earlier this week, President Trump signed an executive order that would streamline the approval process for American infrastructure projects by eliminating the climate change bureaucracy enacted by the Obama administration.

Back in 2012, President Trump spoke his mind about global warming:

President Trump’s view on global warming is a climate skeptic which has enraged the believers.

In our view, climate change is just big business just ask Al Gore, whose net worth in 2000 was $700k, and now it’s almost $200 million.

Back to Gore’s movie flop: ‘An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power’...

The chart below could be the key in understanding why the documentary has utterly failed even with a Viacom pump.

According to @BigJoeBastardi at Weatherbell.com earth’s temps are cooler now than when Al Gore won the noble prize.

Gore made $24 MM in the US from sales of his first movie.  Most of his money was made from sale of Current TV (which he founded) to Al Jazeera in 2013.

He also made money on Apple shares (he was on the board).

So lets say he for sure made minimum 10% from "environmental" issues.   beyond that show me some data.

Hey stupid Al Gore presents the information that the scientists create. 

Attacking the character of Al Gore is just another tactic by the right called Character Assassination

You are a fool with a keyboard. 

A barking dog told to attack and off you go.  Fucking Idiot

GOOGLE "global average temperature annual chart" and go to IMAGES.  Try to find a chart, any chart, that looks anything like the one presented here.

Most look very similar, and move from bottom right to upper left...

 

I don't believe in conspiracy theories where all the climate scientists in the world (except for a few brave souls, usually the same hacks that used to prepare "reports" for the tobacco companies) get together and plot, plot, plot....

What's the weather like out there? "It's hot. Damn hot! Real hot! Hottest things is my shorts. I could cook things in it. A little crotch pot cooking." Well, can you tell me what it feels like. "Fool, it's hot! I told you again! Were you born on the sun? It's damn hot! I saw - It's so damn hot, I saw little guys, their orange robes burst into flames. It's that hot! Do you know what I'm talking about." What do you think it's going to be like tonight? "It's gonna be hot and wet! That's nice if you're with a lady, but it ain't no good if you're in the jungle." Thank you, Roosevelt. Here's a song coming your way right now. "Nowhere To Run To" by Martha and the Vandellas. Yes! Hey, you know what I mean! Too much?

Stupid aggressive people want to play scientist and got caught with pants down. Should have invented the internet and be awarded the no-bel price for that. Now he is stuck with this temperature thing which can be measured by a preschool kid. He is in deep doo doo.

Even if the temperature cooperate with him, has he thought through how nice it would be for plants the world over ? The small increase in temperature is not going to kill anyone. On the contrary, plants thrive and we have more oxygen as a result. It is just hard to watch a grown man jumping up and down becasue of a perceived 1-2 degree change in temperature.

The Climate Scam works like a charm. People pay and get NOTHING. Now that is a Perfect Scam.

Ah, the shallow boys are playing again. The world is getting COOLER? Really? You present this finding as a FACT. Says who? Oh, a private site ramrodded by a known AGW denier. Well, what better proof could anyone ask for? On one hand, NASA, the US Weather Bureau and 98% of scientists. And on the other side? An AGW denier! How could any intelligent person disagree? HAH! And the Arctic ocean is on the verge of being ice-free for the 1st time in recorded history, the ocean is heating and acidifying, weather extremes are increasing, glaciers are disappearing, pine forests are withering in their southern ends, and tropical diseases, insects, and fish are moving north...oh, yeah...and a known AGW denier sees none of it...grow up!

I just want to begin by saying to Roosevelt E. Roosevelt, what it is, what it shall be, what it was. The weather out there today is hot and shitty with continued hot and shitty in the afternoon. Tomorrow a chance of continued crappy with a pissy weather front coming down from the north. Basically, it's hotter than a snake's ass in a wagon rut.

gore is a pathetic buffoon, he and hillary have wasted $ Billions of democratic donors, who now may be reluctant to loosen the purse string for a while

I would observe Al Gore and his climate change minions are corrupt morons / globalists who think they are smarter that American taxpayers....

Awesome science!  Too bad you guys have no fucking clue what you are talking about.  Of course, that doesn't stop the ZH crowd, does it?

Big prizes for any Trumptard capable of explaining the graph and why the title, conclusion and most comments are wrong.  I would offer millions because I am confident that not a single one of you assholes is capable or willing to explain.

Put the 'millions' on the table and I might take you up on the offer.  Otherwise, it's not worth my time to teach you what you don't want to learn.

Ha haha.  It took me three minutes to find the answer.  So,the choices are:lazy, stupid, or so full of shit you wan't admit the truth.  It's okay, I am guessing it's all three!

NASA says that 125K years ago sea levels were 6M higher than today. Rising sea levels are caused by melting ice. Sea levels have risen 120M+ in the last 18,000 years. I'm interested to know why I should be worried. I do worry about pollution and overpopulation but I don't see anything except positives about global warming. Until, that is, the earth reverts to the temperature it has been for 75-80% of its existence which is a fuck ton higher than it is now. With parts of the Antarctic below -115C the termperature will have to rise at least 75C more than now to reach its usual temperature. 

Expat's picture

Um, you can't average out the lowest recorded temperatures with the rest of the world.  Anyway, the lowest recorded temperature ever was not -115 C.

So you have little to no clue what you are talking about.  you make up numbers.  Well, my only response, in keeping with the spirit of ZH comments, is to say "Fuck you!".  You are a right-wing nazi supremacist dickwad conservative asshole.  Sorry, but I just can't resist since that is how most of you respond to anything rational said by anyone who is not an ignorant fuckwad who like Trump and pollution.

But more seriously, go back and do some more research.  Come back with real science and I will debate you.  But just making shit up is childish.

mijev's picture

So you've never actually researched just what is on NASA's website and you believe in fake science just as much as you believe in fake news. Just go ahead and google or look through NASA's website and find out that during its winter months there is a stretch of Antactica's coastline that stays well below -115C. And please don't make claims that you can bet $1M because you're not a scientist and you will lose any argument with me. And please resort to ad hominem because that is really impressive. What do these charlatans have to gain? Money and power over the masses who don't read text books. It's a $1.5T per annum business. The biggest beneficiaries are goldman sachs and rothschilds bank. The biggest loser is the environment. Whenever money is spent on carbon credits, that money doesn't get spent on the environment. Pollution just gets worse. Lock youself away and start researching and maybe, just maybe you will discover something about science and something about yourself. Or just continue to keep your head in the sand.

What about Mr. Gore's "tipping points" that he said would happen in 10 years from his 2006 film, that he's now walking back? Looks like moving goal posts.

Australia just had to recalculate their temperature data. Seems they were not accurately recording temperatures and it made them look artificially higher.

Look it up know it all. I know enough to look at things from several angles and examine the math and the details of the data. You are being lied to. Gore, Obama, Hillary... they are preying on your good intentions.

Expat's picture

First of all, this article itself is bullshit.  It is presenting something and claiming it is something else.  If climate deniers are forced to make shit up to defend their position, what does that say about the validity of their case?

Second, what is the goal of Gore, Obama, and Clinton in global climate change?  What sick, twisted plot do they have to push this agenda?  Do they hate you, yes you!, personally?  Is that it?  Is climate change an attack on some fictional messiah from a 3rd century novel about the Middle East?  Is it an attack on the American Dream?  Is it an attack on decent white folk by those horrible brown heathens?  I don't see the point.  Obama has not made money from climate change.  hillary has not made money from climate change.  Gore has made some money but are you suggesting that no businessman should be allowed to promote his business or profit from it?

Climate change is a scientifically accepted principle.  It is accepted by about 99% of climate scientists (as opposed to the politicians, dentists, and truck drivers who sign "scientific" papers denying it). 

Finally, the Australian "manipulation" has been largely debunked.  Refer to findings by NASA and others which refute the unsubstantiated claims that temperature readings were manipulated.  All the date indicate higher average global temperatures.  Scientist agree that these rises are man made.

Now, you can argue, like our genius president, that a few degrees are nothing.  But add 2 degrees C on average over a year and you will see radical changes, changes which will destroy our way of life.  You might live in North Dakota and cheer warmer winters, but you will regret drier summers.  Florida will sink under the sea, as will coastal areas all across the US (not just the liberal parts).

Perhaps much of the change is attributable to natural processes (solar cycles, etc.) but if your house is burning down, would you leave a few small fires burning in the kitchen because they're not very bad in the overall picture?

You can deny all you want.  You can read right-wing newspapers (the only ones supporting this Austalia story) which soothe your mind and create a safe space for your beliefs.  Read the bible for all I care.  Facts don't give a rat's ass about you or your kids.

Whats even a climate scientist? I never heard about that until i was in my 20s and the global warming hysteria started. I knew about meteorologists, bikini weather girls, oceanographers (Jacques Costeau and his fanboys), the dudes that drill ice cores in antactica, etc.

Would physicists or chemists qualify as climate scientists or do you have to take a masters or phd on it? Do people study climate science as a major or is it more of a postgraduate degree? If so, who are the teachers, other climate scientists?

I dont have any data but im pretty sure that in the last 10 years universities have to have been pumping thousands of so called "climate scientists", no doubt in the same way that universities pumped thousands of unemployable archeologists after the indiana jones movies. Surely, the dumbshit SJW that go to climate science school to save the earth will never accept their global warming beliefs were wrong, since they were the prime motivation and justification of his studies.

I thought that al gore was not a flop.

Hey, Gore's movie is doing a little better than the movie "Toilet: Ek Prem Khaka", whatever the fuck that is.  They both sound like shit.

It was only ever a Oligarchical scheme to deindustrialize.

Oligarchs hate industry. They like finance and resource extraction.

Biggest con in history?

DCVoyeur's picture

Yep some anonymous source says it is a lie and all the fools listening to the alt right news follow as if it is the gospel. 

The only problem is NASA and NOAA both disagree along with every recognized scientific organization in the world.  But facts don't count with fools and their preconceived opinion formed by the disinformation media.
