Al Gore Compares 'Climate Deniers' to Cops at Uvalde School Shooting
Former VP equates those 'guilty' of climate 'inaction' to police response to tragedy
Democrat former Vide President Al Gore has used the Uvalde, Texas, school shooting to promote his radical "climate change" agenda.
Gore argues that "climate deniers" are equal to the police officers who failed to act during the tragedy, leading to more children dying.
Gore blasts those deemed "guilty" of climate "inaction" in a clip released to social media late Saturday night.
The video that contains the allegation is from a segment on NBC’s Meet the Press that was aired on Sunday.
"Climate deniers are really in some ways similar to all of those almost 400 law enforcement officers in Uvalde, Texas," says Gore, whose swimming pool uses more energy than the average American home.
Those cops "were waiting outside an unlocked door while the children were being massacred," he adds.
Gore, a noted private-jet enthusiast who travels the world lecturing on climate issues and previously linked global warming to the coronavirus pandemic, went on to tell NBC News’s Chuck Todd of the moral equivalence he sees:
“They heard the screams, they heard the gunshots and nobody stepped forward.”

Uvalde police have come under intense scrutiny examining their reaction to the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School on May 24, where 19 children and two teachers were killed.
The Texas House Investigative Committee on the tragedy released a 77-page report one week ago providing the most detailed account of the incident to date.
The report said no one was able to stop the shooter because of what it described as “systemic failures and egregious poor decision making” by people who were either in power or could have been in power to take action.
In addition to the law enforcement response, the report details the actions of school officials that contributed to the shooter being able to access the building and the classroom easily.
It also goes into the background of the shooter and indications of his potential to carry out the attack on May 24.
In the interview, Gore went on to argue the public needs to elect more “pro-climate” senators and representatives from both parties to enact more pro-climate policies at a greater pace than ever before.
He claimed – without offering evidence – that renewable energy from wind and solar is now more affordable than electricity from fossil fuels in almost the entire world.
Gore also said Biden has reversed some of the “terrible policies” of President Donald Trump but needs congressional action to take the “bold steps” to enforce immediate climate action against those who disagree.
