Al Gore: Syrian civil war and Arab Spring both resulted from climate change/food riots

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 1, 2017

On the South Korean island of Jeju.

Apparently, not a peep from Gore in his recent speech at the Jeju Forum for Peace and Prosperity about Islamic supremacists like ISIS and Inter-Islam civil wars causing unrest throughout a large portion of the world.

I wonder how much he was paid to speak at the posh paradise island resort?

From the Korea Herald:

Climate crisis behind political riots and refugees

JEJU ISLAND — Climate crisis-induced food shortages were behind the Arab revolutions in 2010 known as the Arab Spring, former United States Vice President Al Gore said Thursday, making the case for action to counter climate change as a growing cause of social instability.

Gore, vice president from 1993-2001 under former President Bill Clinton, was giving a speech on “Challenges and Opportunities of Climate Change” at the on-going Jeju Forum for Peace and Prosperity on this resort island.

Spark that began Arab Spring was about food….

“(It was) a significant event because a food vendor in Tunisia at the peak of the food crisis set himself on fire and the video of that self-immolation caused the Arab Spring,” he said, referring to the democracy protests that originated in Tunisia. “His last words were not ‘Down with the Tyrant,’ his last words were ‘How am I supposed to live?’

“(Nevertheless) the connection between climate crisis and political instability is an issue that has not yet received enough attention,” he stressed.


Also behind the outbreak of the Syrian civil war were climate change-triggered food problems, Gore also said, highlighting that a climate-related drought from 2006-2010 destroyed 60 percent of all the farms in the country and drove 1.5 million climate refugees into the cities of Syria.

“When these climate refugees collided with another 1.5 million refugees from the Iraq War in the cities of Syria, the social explosion happened,” according to Gore.


See my ‘Climate refugee’ category where 50 posts are archived.  The world ‘refugee crisis’ will never be resolved because even if all of the Islam-generated strife ended tomorrow, the Far Left is busy readying a new reason to open your wallets and your homes throughout the west and invite in the third world.

Will Donald Trump “lead us into the wilderness” today on Paris Climate Accord? I have never looked at the ‘Accord,’ does it make us responsible for MORE refugees?  Does anyone know?

  1. It is true that the first part of the uprising was due to the rise in bread prices because Australia had a drought and they were exporting at much higher prices. Prices of food rose on the stock exchange. Of course these Muslim countries in North Africa have long oppressed their own citizens by their autocratic regimes. When the peoples stomachs were grumbling this added to the unrest that was eminent.
    The subsidies which Saudi Arabia have ben given to their grain farmers will soon end and then we may also see more unrest in this part of the world…..
    South Africa – one of the greatest exporters of fruit and food in Africa has had one of its worst droughts in recent memory and beef farmers are losing their farms. Some are not planting anything – too dry. Food instability, together with oppressive governments, will lead to more instability and refugees from Africa.

    Unfortunately this is only the beginning of the woes coming to the globe…. refugees may be the flood that will swallow western governments resources….

    I believe we are living in the time of the end….. so this is to be expected. The Bible also predicted that humans will ruin the earth and that god will destroy those who were responsible…… so all you atheists can have a good laugh now……. and then have a good cry and grind of your teeth in anger when these things come to pass. Revelation 11:18 predicts the ruining of the earth.

  3. Just examine the roots of the Gore family fortune ——
    Al Gore Theme: “If I Had A Hammer” By F.R. Duplantier From America’s Future
    If Al Gore Jr. ever runs for President, he’ll have to answer some embarrassing questions about the source of his family’s wealth.
    “One of the minor mysteries of American politics has been the source of wealth for the family of Vice President Albert Gore Jr.,” observes Joseph Goulden of Accuracy in Media. “When Gore’s father was first elected to the House of Representatives in the late 1930s,” Goulden continues, “he was an impecunious Tennessee school teacher who eked out extra dollars by playing fiddle at church weddings. But later, as a United States Senator, he lived in the plush Fairfax Hotel on Embassy Row in Washington, and sent his son, Al Jr., to the pricey St. Albans School, the haunt of kids from Social Register families.”
    Armand Hammer
    Communism’s ‘Capitalist Prince’ and Vice President Gore’s Greatest Influence
    In a recent issue of the Washington Inquirer, Goulden summarizes the contents of a new book called Dossier, written by investigative reporter Edward Jay Epstein, which “shows that the senior Gore had a silent partner who for several decades insured that his pockets remained comfortably filled. He was Armand Hammer, the multi-millionaire businessman and oil promoter who apparently collected art and politicians with equal zeal.” Goulden notes that Al Gore Sr. was “Hammer’s designated door-opener in official Washington.” The handsome compensation that Gore Sr. received for his services culminated in a half-a-million-dollars-a-year position with Armand Hammer’s oil company, Occidental Petroleum. Al Gore Jr. picked up where his father left off and “put the family’s Senate seat at Hammer’s service.”

    Goulden describes Armand Hammer as “one of the odder, more odious characters of American business and politics, ‘famous’ chiefly because he was rich enough to promote his mammoth ego.” He notes that Hammer’s carefully and expensively crafted public persona was “that of a renegade oilman who made billions from Libyan oil, chummed around with politicians up to White House level, and adorned acres of galleries with paintings, some priceless, some fakes. Hammer’s lawyers bedeviled honest journalists who tried to write otherwise.”
    etc etc etc

    Did someone say food fight?

    Put a tin foil hat on Gore too. The tired old “the video is to blame” is just as ridiculous here as it was in Benghazi. We all know that both were caused by ILLary, the Kenyan impostor and his admin. They wanted Assad out at all costs. They started it and ISIS. The deaths and migration are all on them. They, and our so-called “allied” countries, committed premature evacuation in the middle east, and left it to burn in their rearview mirrors.

  7. The enslaved milk cow called the US Taxpayer will never stop producing taxes until it is extinct due to being replaced by non-taxpaying, refugee welfare recipients. US legislators think of the US taxpayer as a never ending flow of free money the legislators can spend on any wild project they want.

    Even the Social Security Trust Fund is being raided to pay for refugees and other welfare dead-bets. If a refugee is over 62 years old or disabled and can’t work, they qualify for benefits under Social Security even though then never paid a dime into the system.
