Environmentalist and film producer Al Gore claimed “drought stricken refugees” are causing political unrest in Europe during a CNN town hall Tuesday night with Anderson Cooper.

“The number of people that are becoming climate refugees already is beginning to create some political unrest and challenge to the governance of some countries that have a tough time, even in the best of seasons,” Gore said. “These refugees from the drought stricken areas, also climate refugees, are beginning to create instability in parts of Europe and this is just the beginning.”

This line of reasoning isn’t new for Gore. He has previously made arguments claiming global warming caused both Brexit and the Syrian civil war.

“[Climate-related extreme drought] has unleashed this incredible flow of refugees into Europe, which is creating political instability in Europe, which contributed in some ways to the desire of some in the U.K. to say ‘whoa, we’re not sure we want to be part of that anymore,'” Gore said while promoting his new film “An Inconvenient Sequel” in the U.K.
