You Better Watch Out: Al Gore Coming to Town to Indoctrinate a New Batch of Alarmism Kidz

The Toronto Sun's Lorrie Goldstein has the details:
Global warming’s guru will be in Canada next month, speaking at the rather grandly named “Climate Summit of the Americas” organized by Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne. 
This, presumably, to promote her looming cap-and-trade carbon pricing disaster.
After the July 7-9 meeting, Gore will participate in his own Climate Reality Project’s leadership training corps in Toronto, July 9-10. 
There, participants (no charge for those accepted into the course, but people must pay their own travel and accommodation) will receive instruction in spreading the Gore gospel on global warming. 
Since applicants are pre-screened, it’s unlikely Gore will be challenged on his own high-flying, carbon-dioxide spewing lifestyle.
Indeed. Nor, no doubt, will anyone dare challenge summit organizer Wynne on her folly in squandering our mega-bucks on her quixotic "green energy" schemes.

Update: Note to Al--it might be a good idea to include plenty of Catholics.

Update: The indoctrination, er, sorry, leadership training pitch:

Some people wait for the future. Leaders create it.

Ordinary people face challenges. Climate Reality Leaders embrace them. The Climate Reality Leadership Corps is a global network of activists committed to taking on the climate crisis and solving what is far and away the greatest challenge of our time. 
The program takes great leaders and makes them exceptional, providing the training in climate science, communications, and organizing to tell the story of climate change and inspire communities everywhere to take action. The result is a dynamic group of world-changers shaping the conversation on climate in forums from family dinners to international summits and building a 21st-century movement for solutions...
Appeal to the young one's vanity and "social justice" ethos: check. Promise to make 'em a mover and shaker: check. Offer travel to exotic locales: check. Hold out the possibility of building a "movement" that's earth-shaking: check.

Either ISIS has been taking recruiting cues from the global climate change fanatics, or the alarmists have been taking cues from the global caliphate freaks.
