Oh great, the world’s biggest contributor to hot air and climate fraud endorses Jacinda

Al Gore, the world’s biggest contributor of hot air and climate fraud has endorsed Jacinda Ardern.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has a big fan in former US Vice President Al Gore, who swamped her with praise during an interview on climate change yesterday.

Ardern was taking part in Gore’s 24 Hours of Reality, an online event which gathers global activists, celebrities and political leaders to draw attention to climate change.

Welcoming Ardern via satellite link, Gore said he had been watching the New Zealand election and “I was cheering for you even before you were elected.”

He described her as “a breath of fresh air, grounded and well balanced.”  

How ironic he’s called his online event “24 Hours of Reality”, when nothing he has ever claimed has ever been based on reality. The man is a fraud. He is right though, she is well balanced, she dribbles out of both sides of her mouth.

Before the interview began, he had described her as a “very powerful and inspiring new voice in the world community.” And after the interview was over, he said “the whole world is pulling for you.”

It was Ardern’s campaign call that climate change was the biggest event facing her generation that won his attention – she had repeated it at a conference during the Apec summit.

In the interview with Gore, Ardern set out what her Government intended to do including the goal of carbon neutrality by 2050 and an independent Climate Commission to steer decisions on issues such as the emissions trading scheme.

She used the interview to call for climate change to become one of the areas on which there was political consensus, saying it should not be an issue that was “flavour of the month” for one government but not the next.

Ardern said there needed to be greater conversation about the issue, but that would require taking politics out of it.

“There are certain issues with which I hope that as electoral cycles move we’ll see less of it becoming just an issue that becomes the flavour of the month for that government but not the next because we’ll never get consistency around the actions we take.”

Haven’t we talked enough? Why the need for more “conversations”?

Gore ended the interview by praising New Zealand, saying he had visited and found it beautiful. As a reward for his flattery, Ardern invited him to return.

Presumably in a great big fossil fuel burning aircraft, not to mention the substantial local heat island effect emanating from his mouth.
