Well, not exactly, but Al Gore does want children to believe that the struggle to fight manmade climate change is somehow comparable to the struggle for civil rights. Gore reportedly told school children the following according to a report:
“But I’m thinking back a long way to when I was your age and the civil rights revolution was unfolding,” Gore said. “And we kids asked our parents and their generation, ‘Explain to me again why it’s OK for the law to officially discriminate against people because of their skin color?’ And parent’s try to tell their kids the right thing, you know? Usually, I do. And when our parent’s generation couldn’t answer that question, that’s when the law started to change.”
Could the fact that Gore is going for the hard sell now mean he realizes he is losing the argument?
