Politico | Al Gore: Global Warming Skeptics Are Like Racists or Something

The former vice president also criticized climate change skeptics, urging  those who support curbs to greenhouse gases to “win the conversation” when it  comes to global warming. He compared the struggle against climate skeptics to  the fight against racism during the civil rights movement.

When racist comments would come up in the course of conversations, “There  came a time when people said, ‘Hey man, why do you talk that way? That’s wrong,  I don’t go for that, so don’t talk that way around me. I just don’t believe  that.’”

That happened in millions of conversations, and slowly the conversation was  won,” he said. “And we still have racism, God knows, but it’s so different now  and so much better. And we have to win the conversation on climate.”
