On Wednesday, Al Gore was asked a simple question by a journalist. In response, the former vice-president had a major meltdown, losing his cool and barking at the reporter.
It’s the latest in a long string of outrageous outbursts from Gore.
The Daily Caller has the story:
When asked by an Axios reporter Wednesday if attention should be paid toward getting the world off fossil fuels or reducing greenhouse gas emissions, Gore responded with a sharp tone: “What does that mean? Not getting off fossil fuels but reducing emissions? You’re not buying the CCS nonsense are you? Are you?”
CCS is the commonly used acronym for carbon capture, which stands for “carbon, capture and storage.” The practice involves capturing carbon emissions from fossil fuel sites and storing it away. The stored carbon is typically put underground. A large number of scientists and experts believe CCS has the potential to decarbonize the world’s fossil fuel industry. The United Nations has also deemed it essential in efforts to curb global warming.
Gore, however, is clearly not impressed with the technology.
Gore has a reputation for melting down in public, earning him the moniker “America’s potty-mouthed King of Bizarre Temper Tantrums.”
