It's been ten years since Al Gore predicted that we had just ten years left to do something about global warming to avoid disaster.
His outlandish claims were wrong.
Reporting from 2006 Sundance Film Festival, the Associated Press wrote, “And politicians and corporations have been ignoring the issue for decades, to the point that unless drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gases are taken within the next 10 years, the world will reach a point of no return, Gore said.”
A Jan. 26, 2006, Washington Post story also confirmed the notion that Gore claimed there were only 10 years to “save the planet from turning into a total frying pan.”
Al Gore said 10 years ago, we only had 10 to do something about global warming. Don't expect media to remind you: https://t.co/egH2oY92gI— Julia A. Seymour (@BizMediaJulia) January 25, 2016
