Failed Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore, who falsely claims that he invented the internet, believes that climate change started the war in Syria.
The Daily Caller reported:
Former Vice President Al Gore blamed climate change Thursday for the food shortages that resulted in the 2010 Arab Spring as well as the conflict in Syria.
Gore made these remarks at the South Korean resort island of Jeju during the “Challenges and Opportunities of Climate Change” Forum for Peace and Prosperity, The Korea Herald reported. Gore cited the largest Russian fire in 2010 that he said occurred because of global warming.
“Fifty-five thousand people died mostly of respiratory consequences of the smoke, but something else happened four months later,” he said.
Gore went on to say the consequences of the fire included the destruction of grain in the area and that Russia and Ukraine were compelled to take their grains off the global market.
“So this raised a food crisis worldwide … and there were food riots in 60 countries around the world,” including Tunisia, Gore said.
“(Nevertheless) the connection between climate crisis and political instability is an issue that has not yet received enough attention,” he remarked.
“When these climate refugees collided with another 1.5 million refugees from the Iraq War in the cities of Syria, the social explosion happened,” he said.
Al Gore is now going nuts since President Trump announced the U.S. is leaving the Paris Climate Accord.
Al Gore said we had 10 years left…in 2005
