Al Gore has an interesting theory about climate change and how it helped put Trump in office
Environmentalist, former vice president, and climate change theory advocate Al Gore explained that he feels President Donald Trump may have won the 2016 election over Hillary Clinton because of “hyperglobalization” and the lack of trust in environmental “experts.”
Speaking with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Gore on Friday night noted that voters simply don’t trust “elites” any longer.
“We’re seeing huge changes in the global economy and the American economy,” Gore told Hayes. “Wages have stagnated for middle-income families for decades … and there is a lot of understandable unrest, and elites were slow to recognize it because the increasing inequalities kept the elites’ income going up. ”
For his part, Hayes claimed that any resistance to accepting the theory of climate change is simply “cultural,” and that the only ones who oppose it are those who associate the concept with “liberals.”
