First off, here's some thoughts on the whole global warming issue. I think global warming is bunk. We haven't even been able to measure the temperature of the earth for long enough to know what sort of trends exist. Climate is still quite mysterious and we've only been tracking it for a little while. Also, the word "proof" is used in reference to global warming far too often. Only bunk scientists and politicians use that word in connection with a scientific hypothesis.
As for Mr. Gore. He's a new man. Or so they say. I'm not sure why this makes him so wonderful, however. Most politicians end up losing all credibility when they do things as stupid as the things Gore has done. Every time Gore re-imagines himself he comes up with a new childhood for himself (this time he studied in France and got good grades in science classes). I'm waiting for him to say he was around during the Ice Age and it was a terrible, terrible experience. And he froze to death with a wooly mammoth and then got resurrected by a bolt of lightning, which is why he was somewhat stiff and boardlike during one of his earlier personalities. You know, we have a name for someone who cannot make up his or her mind as to who he or she is: insecure.
Gosh, I hope that wasn't too mean . . .
