The reality of terror forces Al Gore to cancel ‘climate change reality’ concert in Paris


Former Vice President Al Gore was forced to cancel a “climate change” benefit concert in Paris called “24 Hours of Reality” after a series of terrorist attacks in the city brought the true realities of the world to the forefront.

For years, Gore and environmentalists including President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have warned that climate change is the greatest global threat to humanity. In a sad twist of irony, the terrorist attacks in Paris Friday night proved just how naive that mindset is.

Friday evening, just before the terrorist attacks in Paris occurred, Al Gore kicked off “Live Earth: 24 Hours of Reality,” a telethon/benefit concert at the Eiffel Tower to bring attention to climate change. The event was to last 24 hours, live-stream online, and include performances by Elton John and Bon Jovi. The event only lasted about five hours, however, before Gore and the event’s organizers pulled the plug.

“Out of solidarity with the French people and the City of Paris, we have decided to suspend our broadcast of 24 Hours of Reality and Live Earth. Our thoughts are with all who have been affected and the entire nation of France,” Gore said in a press statement. “We send our condolences to the families of those who have been killed or injured.”

While fighting man-made pollution is a noble cause, the climate change movement (an entirely different endeavor) has become its own cottage industry among the liberal left, that achieves few results while consolidating power in government. The argument that climate change poses the greatest threat to man came burning down in Paris, as environmentalists ran head on into the true realities of our violent world.
