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:

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.
