Huh? Al Gore compares global warming skeptics to an 'alcoholic father'

After a brief hiatus, Al Gore is back on his global warming warpath. After giving a laudatory keynote address at the 2013 Tahoe Summit, the victory lap continued with a lovey-dovey interview the Washington Post’s Ezra Klein.

The former vice president told Klein climate change deniers are like “an alcoholic father who flies into a rage every time a subject is mentioned” and believes his climate ‘science’ has taken a little while to catch on because it is on par with movements such as abolition, civil rights and gay rights, which all gained acceptance over time.

“This is very important. We have to apologize in no uncertain terms to Mister – and do I even dare call him Mister? It’s so beneath him. Sir, even though he's not been knighted, I think he should be,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Sir Albert Gore. Boy, was he right. He is now taking credit for how right he is."

“And you know what,” Pat asked. “We may have been among those mocking him when he said it and yet, I'm ashamed.”

“We are ashamed. We should be ashamed,” Glenn agreed. “Anyway, I don't know exactly how that works, but it's really bad, and he has made some predictions. And should we go with the predictions or should we go with him taking the victory lap?”

You can watch Gore’s full remarks from the Tahoe Summit below:

For those of you who don’t have 34 minutes to spend watching Gore recycle his old global warming speeches, one of the themes he attempted to convey was that the models presented in his documentary An Inconvenient Truth have come true years ahead of schedule.

GORE:  Back when that movie came out, the single most common criticism of those who disagreed with what I was trying to say was they pointed to the part in that movie where I did an animation saying that with rising sea levels and flood and the storm surges, the World Trade Center Memorial site could be invaded by ocean water.  They say, that's ridiculous, that can't ever happen. How demagogic can you possibly be predicting such a thing?  Well, it happened last October 29th, way ahead of schedule. And Dan Cuomo, who was a colleague of these two great governors, said he went down there that night and watched the ocean water flood right in to the World Trade Center Memorial site.

Not so fast…

Ignoring the fact that Superstorm Sandy – the catastrophic event to which Gore refers – is considered a 100-year storm, his good friends over at United Nations appear to have a different opinion of global warming.

While Gore may be confident that he has science on his side, TheBlaze is reporting “a recently leaked draft of a U.N. report shows that although climate experts are confident man-made activity is causing global warming, they are having a hard time explaining why the warming rate seems to have slowed in recent years.”

According to Reuters, who reviewed the leaked document, scientists are now explaining the slowed warming rate in a new way:

An IPCC draft says there is “medium confidence” that the slowing of the rise is “due in roughly equal measure” to natural variations in the weather and to other factors affecting energy reaching the Earth’s surface.

Scientists believe causes could include: greater-than-expected quantities of ash from volcanoes, which dims sunlight; a decline in heat from the sun during a current 11-year solar cycle; more heat being absorbed by the deep oceans; or the possibility that the climate may be less sensitive than expected to a build-up of carbon dioxide.

“It might be down to minor contributions that all add up,” said Gabriele Hegerl, a professor at Edinburgh University. Or maybe, scientists say, the latest decade is just a blip.

Yes, volcanoes are now being blamed for the slowing of global warming. Glenn, Pat, and Stu have some fun with the volcano claim in the clip below:

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
