The list of Islamophobes is too long for this guessing game, can we have a clue or will you reconsider letting us google it?

So what does this have to do with Al Gore and with Global Warming? He was one of the first to talk about Global Warming, that's what he's about.......... everything else is "spin" to get the working class off the subject of Global Warming.

Regan "the smoke above the Smokey Mountains is only the rotting of the plants in the forest, that's what the scientists tell us, there is no such thing as Global Warming"

the old Bush "this guy is so crazy, we'll be up to our necks in owls and out of work for every American, no such thing as Global Warming"

congressman ? last year "Al Gore is the head of the biggest scam ever put on the American public, with all this craziness about Global Warming"

young Bush is too stupid to know what CO2 is! and "environment" is a big word for him........ he can't pronounce it, so how could he understand it! W gets a pass on this one! Sometimes being the dumbest guy in the room is what it takes to mislead the folks in America.

God Bless America!

Lookit,
I think that we are all on the same page as far as digging the envrionment. There is a LOT that we can do. The industrial revolution ravaged the world and particullarly our part of the country. We will be cleaning it up perhaps forever.

But....
Al Gore in self serving hypocrit. Anybody who lives in a mansion and flies around on private jets to get speaking fees looses the luxary of mau-mauing regular people about environmental issues.

Also no objective person in the planet could suggest that we are primarily the ones at fault. We are perhaps the most environmentally responsible nation in the world. Once China, India, Russa and the rest of BFE gets their crap together, then come talk to us.

Ryan,

I thought I just turned on the Sean Hannity radio show reading that spew. you could have at least changed a few words rather than recite it verbatim.

Enjoy the kool-aid.

For the record I am no fan of Hanity.

Am I really the only one that thinks he's (Gore) full of crapola?

Like I said, there is much to be done when it comes to the environment. I personally believe that Gore is our for Gore and is not the jolly green giant that he says that he is.

To each their own, but all I ask is that you don't try to take mine.

Just bustin yur chops Ryan....ther eis a sayin that goes clean up yer own back yard before telling me what is wrong with mine. That applies to the US toward other countries. Afterall we have taken on the role of we are greater than the rest of you in this generation. We should show it in our actions.

I am not a fan of gore either...in fact I don't really have a stance on the issue of global warming except that it comes up everywhere you look and the counter isn't a bad thing unless you are a green house gas polluter.

As for gore, well, anyone who begins(did I say begins?) locomotes a movement makes a footprint. it is unfortunate that footprints are the enemy in his one. As important as this movement is, it is a shame to have the focus be on the messenger than the message. But that is just the way society sees things these days. rather than take a position on an issue this society of convenience would rather take the position of someone they can easily listen to and be comfortable with discussing with their friends and call it anti-capitalism. It really is a movement of its own. Not based on values but peer presure.

Anyway, I am not so sure Gore is targeting the middle class to recycle or to go broke driving hybrid cars so much as to get people thinking about their impact or better yet the global impact on our industry and environmental choices. Yet he is the villian or percieved to be by the right in any way they can muster and their following will rally the pitch forks and torches to villianize the notion of positive action toward a potentially globally harmful situation.

If nobody takes the lead, who will be the leader? Industry?

The truth is nowhere near as exciting as the sensationalization of this "issue" by those who have much to lose if Al Gore's advocacy for responsible energy usage is successful.

The claims are exagerated in the first instance and misleading when all facts are considered. As this more balanced consideration shows (http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/gorehome.asp), the Gore household is not a mere residence, but also serves as an office for both Al and Tipper and a goodly portion of their energy comes from more expensive and renewable sources.

But, importantly, the Gore household is not a typical household. I would suspect that for a family of his stature both in notoriety and economic means, he shows as much if not more concern for the environment than his true peers.

All of that aside, however, as Maurice duly notes, what is important is whether there is truth to his message, not whether his contribution to the problem of consumption is greater than yours or mine.

It may be honorably maintained that the goal of an environmentally responsible, yet technologically advancing society, is to produce more and more energy to make life more convenient and enjoyable while causing less and less harm to the planet. There simply is no neccessary hypocrisy in consuming large amounts of energy and advocating for a shift away from forms of energy production that are harmful to the environment and non-renewable.

Topic 1. Global Warming

Topic 2. Al Gore, whether you like him, don't like him, etc.

The two topics are essentially unrelated.

You have to decide, are you going to talk about climate. Or are you going to talk about Al Gore?

If the climate is actually undergoing significant changes, that would be true whether or not anyone named Al Gore ever existed.

The people who tried to turn the debate about Climate Change into a debate about Al Gore were completely aware of what they were doing, of course.
