Climate change caused Brexit, Al Gore has claimed.
Gore, who was speaking at an event to promote his latest global warming propaganda documentary – An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power – said the Brexit vote in Britain last summer was the result of “political instability” created by the “stress” caused by climate-change induced chaos in the Middle East.
It all began in Syria, Gore explained, unchallenged by a fawning interviewer from the film magazine Empire.
He proceeded to outline his lavishly complex climate conspiracy theory involving climate change, Syria, and Wikileaks:
“One of the lines of investigation [scientists] have been pursuing has led them to the conclusion that significant areas of the Middle East and North Africa are in danger of becoming uninhabitable
“And, just a taste of this, to link it to some of the events that the UK and European Union are going through – think for a moment about what happened in Syria.
“Before the gates of hell opened in Syria, what happened was a climate-related extreme drought.
“From 2006 to 2010, 60 per cent of the farms in Syria were destroyed… and 80 per cent of the livestock were killed. The drought in the eastern Mediterranean is the worst ever on record – the records only go back 900 years, but it’s historic.
“And 1.5 million climate refugees were driven into the cities in Syria, where they collided with refugees from the Iraq War.
“Wikileaks revealed the internal conversations in the Syrian government where they were saying to one another ‘we can’t handle this, there’s going to be a social explosion’. There are other causes of the Syrian civil war, but this was the principal one.”
This, Gore went on to explain, led to an “incredible flow of refugees into Europe, which is creating political instability and which contributed in some ways to the desire of some in the UK to say ‘whoa, we’re not sure we want to be part of that anymore’”.
Though it’s true that climate alarmists, including Gore, the Prince of Wales, and sweary chanteuse Charlotte Church, have sought to blame the Syrian crisis on drought induced by “climate change”, there is little evidence for this. [For details see my previous pieces on the subject: “No, Prince Charles, Climate Change Is Not Responsible For Syria or ISIS“ and “For The Last Time, No, The Syrian Crisis Was Not Caused By Climate Change” and “No, Charlotte Church, the Syrian War Was Not Caused By Climate Change”.]
This is almost certainly the first time climate change has been blamed for Brexit.

Also if you have noticed the Commonwealth Countries are major producers of commodities and major consumers of capital,services and manufactured products of all kinds.
Seemingly an ideal commercial fit for the UK,so why did you join the EU.
We didn’t vote your politicians in either.
A stark contrast to Britains “hands on” management style at home which has been a disaster.
There is no part of the economy this parasite squid called Westmonster – sorry Westminster – will not stick its jack boots in. The worst examples are public transport (a bankrupt incompetent tragedy), healthcare (a bankrupt incompetent tragedy), energy (a bankrupt incompetent tragedy), education (a bankrupt incompetent tragedy) to name but a few.
Westmonster now sucks nearly 60% of GDP out of the private sector that creates all the wealth for this 80 year old parasite socialist State to feed off. And since recession hit on 2007 it has doubled spending and debt like a dysfunctional vandal in society while business and consumers have rightly cut back.
Taxation is increasing under the wet socialists/marxists of the Con-Lib Govt sucking even more out of a fragile bled dry economy while it has done little more than jawbone about cuts (none to daye, 3 years into recession) and moaned and whinged about a paltry £6bn in cuts like some spoilt brat.
This is a 20 stone pig feeding on the private sector and it bleets about having having a figure dip taken away from its ever open fat obese mouth?
Blighty is totally f**ked… last man with any sense out, switch the lights off
