More hypocrisy from Al Gore

We have noted previously the hypocrisy of former Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Albert Arnold Gore, Jr, but our favorite blog pirate, William Teach, found even more:

Al Gore: We Really Need To Control Africa’s Population
By William Teach January 28, 2014 – 9:40 am
Al Gore pops his head up at Davos…say, how’d he get there? A fossil fueled flight?…to make a racist pronouncement (via Climate Depot)

(CNBC) Stopping overpopulation is one way the dangers of climate change can be mitigated, according to two of the most prominent believers in global warming.

Former Vice President Al Gore and Microsoft founder Bill Gates (how did Gates get to Davos? Anyone think he flew commercial?) said at the World Economic Forum in Davos that contraception is a key in controlling the proliferation of unusual weather they say is endangering the world.

“Depressing the rate of child mortality, educating girls, empowering women and making fertility management ubiquitously available, so women can chose how many children and the spacing of children… is crucial to the future shape of human civilization,” said Gore, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 for his work on global warming.

Gore said Africa’s population is expected to surpass India’s and China’s by the mid-21st century and will be more than both combined by the end of the century.

The video of him speaking is here, starts at the 15 minute mark. Had anyone on the political Right said this, much less a former US Vice President, they would immediately be labeled a racist for wanting to reduce the population of Africa, which is largely populated by Black people and Arabs.

More at Mr Teach’s original.

By now, no one is surprised that the maven of climate change, the grand poobah who tells us that we must all cut back on our lifestyles, would burn tons of jet fuel to go to Africa to make yet another speech. But when he tells other people that they must have fewer children, the obvious question is: how many children did Mr Gore and his lovely (former) wife Tipper have? The answer is four! The Gores were not Roman Catholics, but Southern Baptists, and he has never expressed any opposition to artificial contraception, so it would seem that Tipper and he had their four children by choice.

Yet again, it’s do as I say, not do as I do. But, then again, he’s a liberal, and we shouldn’t ever expect anything other than hypocrisy from them.

How truly blessed we are that this man never became President!

  1. “Depressing the rate of child mortality, educating girls, empowering women and making fertility management ubiquitously available, so women can chose how many children and the spacing of children… is crucial to the future shape of human civilization,”

    Okay, somebody’s got to explain to me how “depressing the rate of child mortality” reduces population. Seems to me if you want to reduce polulation you would increase the rate of child mortality. Also, how does “educating girls and empowering women” control population? Does he mean educating and empowering them to abort their children? If so, again then what difference does child mortality make? And the “spacing of children” does nothing to reduce their number just spread them out a few years more. This man(?) is a complete moron.

    But the real money line is:

    Gore said Africa’s population is expected to surpass India’s and China’s by the mid-21st century and will be more than both combined by the end of the century.

    Since when has anything Algore said, predicted or prognosticated ever been correct? Besides, seems the left is doing their best to kill off Africans by banning DDT so a third of the population dies of malaria when it is so easily avoided.

  2. PJ O’Rourke, as usual, said it best two decades ago (paraphrasing): Population control is a perfectly safe, indeed sanctimonious way for “Progressives” to be racists and Complaints about there being too many people invariably leads to unfortunate and even lethal plans for those people

  3. PJ O’Rourke has the ability to describe the leftist mindset to a tee. They are the team of death….and taxes…and they are the ones we’ve been waiting for…GOOD TARGET PRACTICE.
