Commercial crabber calls out Al Gore on fake science, explains sea level hasn’t changed at all since 1970

In promotion of his latest film, “An Inconvenient Sequel,” former vice president and global warming activist Al Gore is still desperately trying to make the case that planet earth is heating up, and that only carbon taxes can fix it.

His hands are leathered, his face ruddy from the sun. His fingernail beds are wide and worn. In the liner of his black pickup, 50-pound boxes of frozen menhaden await a final dip in the Delaware Bay – this time as bait. But there’s something not so predictable about this Kent County crabber. Onshore, Pugh, 50, is the mayor of Leipsic, tending to a population of 183. [email protected]
