Clinton-Gore Team Up to Save the Planet

Miami, Millennials, Matthew and the real reason for warming hype.

Hillary Clinton isn’t assuming an election victory just yet, as she’s still angling for the Bernie Sanders/Millennial crowd by dispatching … Al “Jazeera” Gore to Miami to talk voting and global warming. (And if anyone knows about hot air, it’s Al.) What better reason to scare Florida voters about climate change than last weekend’s monster Hurricane Matthew? “Elections have consequences,” Gore told the crowd. “Your vote really, really, really counts. A lot. You could consider me Exhibit A of that truth.” That would be a reference to his defeat in 2000. “For those of you who are younger than 25, you might not remember the election of 2000 or what happened here in Florida and across the country,” Gore said. “For those of you older than 25, I heard you murmuring just now but take it from me it was a very close election.”

And why is voting for Clinton important? Gore says it’s because Donald Trump will “take us toward a climate catastrophe,” while Clinton will make fighting climate change a “top national priority.” After all, fearmongering about the climate is a great way for Democrats to advocate government power. It’s the primary reason they “care” about the planet at all.
