“Alex, I’ll take climate change fear mongers for $400, please …”
The syndicated game show Jeopardy! doesn’t typically allow stars to appear on the show to hawk their latest projects. Actors do that on the late night talk show circuit, Ellen DeGeneres’ couch or even the morning news programs.
The game show made an exception this week for Al Gore, the former vice president whose talent for pushing a radical climate change agenda is exceeded only by the hypocrisy of his carbon-gulping lifestyle and oil-connected transactions.
Nevertheless, there was Gore on Jeopardy! this week, all part of his book promotional tour allowing him to sound the alarm–again–over global warming:
Gore’s topic was “The Future,” and any time a contestant picked an answer from this topic, a video clip of Gore reading the answer appeared. The second answer read, “Looking to the future, we can’t ignore the climate crisis as we’ve done too often since back in 1859 when an Irish scientist noted the heat-trapping effect of this molecule.”
The name of Gore’s new book on climate change … what is The Future?
