Man Who Lived On Ocean For 50 Years Confronts Al Gore – ‘Water Levels are Same as They Were Since 1970’ [VIDEO]

Man Who Lived On Ocean For 50 Years Confronts Al Gore – ‘Water Levels are Same as They Were Since 1970’ [VIDEO]

Al Gore must be struggling to remain relevant and thus has decided to resurrect his global warming hysteria campaign with a sequel to his much-panned movie, “An Inconvenient Truth.” Gore has been trying to make all kinds of crazy claims over the past few decades, including warnings that sea levels were rising and in a short period of time, entire coastlines would be under water. But he just got smacked down by one man who has lived and worked on the ocean since the 1970s.

Gore was participating in a CNN town hall with Anderson Cooper to discuss global warming. Held on Tangier Island in Virginia, Gore was trying to blame rising sea levels for the slow erosion of the island, which is slowly sinking into the sea. But James Eskridge, the mayor and a commercial crabber, had other thoughts.

“I’m a commercial crabber and I’ve been working the Chesapeake Bay for 50+ years,” Eskridge said. “I have a crab house business out on the water and the water level is the same as it was when the place was built in 1970. I’m not a scientist, but I am a keen observer and if sea level rises are occurring, why am I not seeing signs of it?”

And while Gore wanted to blame his own personal bogeyman of global warming for the erosion of Tangier Island, Eskridge set him straight there too, saying that it was due to “wave action and storms.” Eskridge has asked that a seawall be built to protect the island from further erosion, as it is estimated that the island will be uninhabitable in just 50 years. The island has lost a total of 66% of its land mass due to erosion since the 1800s.

Gore wasn’t about to accept Eskridge’s rebuttal of course, asking if the storms had increased any over the years — to which Eskridge had a curt reply. “Not really,” he said. Gore has also claimed that global warming would cause a massive increase in inclement weather, including hurricanes, which is just another claim of his that has yet to become reality.

Do you think man-made global warming is real?
