no wonder we're doomed
How many Nobel prizes does Al Gore need before he can get some respect?
Knowing he'd testified yesterday before Congress but not seeing anything in the New York Times, I went online, only to find the snarkiest, most empty story in the Washington Post, just making fun of Gore, pulling out all the old cliches from the 2000 election. This is one day after Gristreported that global warming ranks at the bottom of a long list of concerns -- war, the economy, Social Security, health insurance, education, and you name it, whereas none of these issues will mean anything if we get swamped by changes in climate. It's one more bit of evidence of the ferocious power of denial -- that, and the sad decline of newspapers.
