Gore’s hockey stick speech was pivotal in regimenting popular opinion on “human caused global warming” because the vast majority of people don’t have the time to investigate the science, the institutional backing, the elite planning, the lucrative business opportunities and the inevitably tyrannical and genocidal implications of the AGW theory and its proposed solutions.
