Commercial crabber and Mayor of Tangier Island, VA, James Eskridge asked Al Gore a question that is a variation on what many of us who know the true nature of the climate hoax have asked the naive believers accepting the word of these criminals as climate gospel.
It’s sometimes uncomfortable for the hoax merchants when their fraud is challenged by reality, as in the case of the claims that beach erosion is rising sea levels or other instances where there is no difference between the beach of today and the way it was in the 1960s.
For Mayor Eskridge, his evidence dates back to 1608, a window of time that Al Gore doesn’t have a prepackaged lie to cover. He tells Gore he’s got 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. I’m not a scientist but I’m a keen observer.”
He continues, “And if sea level rise is occurring, why am I not seeing signs of it? I mean, our island is disappearing, but it’s because of erosion and not sea level rising and unless we get a sea wall we will lose our island, but back to the question, why am I not seeing signs of the sea level rise?”
Shyster Gore attempts to use the same scheme that Obama used when he visited Alaska on his global warming sales trip, that the erosion of an island is due to situations created by rising sea levels, although the sea levels haven’t gone up. It doesn’t work this time around. Mayor Eskridge knows his history and is, as he said, a keen observer.
Gore asks, “What do you think the erosion is due to, Mayor?” He answers, “Wave action, storms.” Gore asks, “Has that increased any?” When Eskridge answers in the negative, Gore asserts, “So you’re losing the island even though the waves and the (can’t bring yourself to say storms haven’t increased, can you Gore?) haven’t increased.”
“Yes, this erosion has been going on since Captain John Smith discovered the island and named it. It’s gotten to our doorstep now and we focus on it more.”
Gore goes into the empty words mode, talking about how arguments about science aren’t going to be any comfort, nothing close to an attempt to explain why reality is not matching up to his alarmism. Mayor Eskridge notes responds to Gore’s question of their sea level as being at four feet, stating if he saw it occurring he’d shout it from the house top but he isn’t.
Gore knows this is doing nothing but damaging his already fragile credibility even more. He says, “One of the challenges of this issue is taking what the scientists [paid charlatans like him trading fake reports for grant money] say and translating it into terms that are believable to people where they can see the consequences in their own lives. Translation: Sometimes he gets busted with a shovelful of manure.
He adds, “And I get that and I try every day to figure out ways to do that,” an admission that crafting a fake narrative is something he works on daily. We already knew that, Al, but it’s nice to hear it coming directly from your own septic mouth.
