Former Democratic presidential candidate and global warming mouthpiece, Al Gore, is spreading his message about climate change by comparing it to some of America's biggest moral battles.

At the Ecocity World Summit in Melbourne, Australia, Gore made some head-turning remarks about climate change.

Gore said, via Fox News:

“The abolition of slavery, woman’s suffrage and women’s rights, the civil rights movement and the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa, the movement to stop the toxic phase of nuclear arms race and more recently the gay rights movement. [...]

All these movements have one thing in common. they were all met with ferocious resistance"

He said that these movements have one thing in common: they were met with “ferocious resistance,” according to the Daily Mail.

Gore is getting grilled for his comments:

Gore seldom stops pushing his climate change cause. On Wednesday, he tweeted about an iceberg the size of Delaware breaking off from the Antarctic shelve.

However, he didn't mention that icebergs break off as part of the natural phenomenon of ice calving, and that several have broken off from Antarctica in the past.

While Gore continues to talk about climate change being a threat to our planet, according to a 2016 Gallup poll, Americans find cyber security, terrorism, and Iran developing a nuclear weapon to be the top threats to the U.S.

Slavery? Could Gore be any more over the top with his agenda?
