Environmentalist film producer Al Gore has officially found his match: a local fisherman on Tangier Island.
On Tuesday night, Gore’s own climate science was challenged when the mayor of the Island, a commercial crabber since the 1970s, told the environmentalist film producer he hadn’t seen the sea level change since he began his first career — and he’s on a boat “day-in and day-out.”
“I’m a commercial crabber and I’ve been working the Chesapeake Bay for 50+ years. I have a crab house business out on the water and the water level is the same as it was when the place was built in 1970,” Eskridge said. “I’m not a scientist, but I am a keen observer and if sea level rises are occurring, why am I not seeing signs of it?”
Gore had no immediate response, so Eskridge continued, saying that indeed erosion was slowly eating away at the island, but it was a natural force caused by “wave action [and] storms.”
“Have [the storms] increased any?” Gore asked.
“Not really,” Tangier’s mayor responded.
After that, Gore attempted to make it “clear” that people might not be able to actually “observe all of what the scientists say about climate change” — and he quickly moved on to another topic.
At the end of the day, Al Gore’s climate scare-mongering doesn’t line up with reality — the sea levels are the same and all previous “world-ending” predictions about the earth turned out to be complete hoaxes.
