The high priest of globaloney, former Vice President Al Gore, is now jumping into the so-called “migrant caravan” controversy by exclaiming that the whole mess was created because of global warming.
Gore jumped to his overheated Twitter account for a December 17 tweet claiming that people in Central America are leaving their homes over global warming.
“People from all over the world are being forced to migrate because the climate crisis is affecting their livelihood,” he wrote. “The migrant caravan from Central America is a recent, startling example. This @FT video connects the dots in a profound way.”

According to Daily Caller:
Gore pointed to a Financial Times video on “climate change and the migrant caravan,” claiming that while most migrants are fleeing violence, “climate change is also playing a part” based on an interview with a farmer-turned-migrant who’s crop failed.
The video, published on Dec. 13, largely reflects arguments made by some media outlets in the past few months that migrant caravans to the U.S. are a “preview of climate migrations” — meaning people driven from their homes due to global warming.
Of course, truth and facts don’t much figure into Gore’s blather. Daily Caller notes…
Many experts who have seriously examined claims linking climate to violent conflict and mass migrations have found little evidence to support such claims, but the media still applied the narrative by linking global warming to Central American migrations.
Naturally, the facts speak otherwise from what the left claims.
Even world poverty is far less of a problem than it ever has been.
A recent report found that there are more people are living among the middle classes today than ever in human history. More humans are well-fed, healthier, and have better prospects for their futures than ever.
“Something of enormous global significance is happening almost without notice. For the first time since agriculture-based civilisation began 10,000 years ago, the majority of humankind is no longer poor or vulnerable to falling into poverty,” said the report released in October.
This is amazing. but it is utterly ignored by global warming religionists and the media.
