Al Gore Calls Global Warming Skeptics “Immoral, Unethical And Despicable”…

Quote:
The man who was almost president graced Honolulu with his presence Tuesday and walked us through a “seminar of sustainability.”

By turns a university professor, a wry observer, a recovering politician, a joke teller and a Southern preacher, Al Gore fired up an audience of thousands at the Stan Sheriff Center to believe that global warming can be stopped. But it’s possible only if each of us does our part.

Isn't it interesting that the man who invented the internet should be outted by his own brainchild?

I don't see how this is "outing" him, exactly. The people who oppose him already assume he feels that way about him, and the people who support him likely feel something similar for those who don't.

And of course if you read it in the context of the article, it sounds different.

Quote:
He compared fake science from polluters stating that humans are not to blame for the climate to tobacco companies that used to hire actors to play doctors who denied cigarettes were dangerous.

“That’s immoral, unethical and despicable,” he said of both.
I agree.

And we're going to continue talking about climate change as long as it's happening, which unfortunately is going to be far beyond your lifetime or mine.

He was almost President. Guess this is how he compensates.

I think Limbaugh made an Al Gore countdown to the meltdown calendar. Algore: We Have Ten Years Left Before Earth Cooks - The Rush Limbaugh Show

According to the calendar as I write this we have 1 year and 283 days left before the world is cooked. I'm uncertain where the pop up timer is hidden, but suspect somewhere in Broward County Florida near a forgotten hanging chad.

So I guess no one ought to be worried about paying off credit card debt?
