Who would have thought that a guy who wrote a book about the environment and how we need to go back to using the horse and buggy could ever win the Nobel Peace Prize. Folks I give you Albert Gore Jr. Should I suddenly be swept away by a heat wave while bloggin you'll have to forgive me Algore seems to embrace lovingly global warming sometime more than he embraces Tipper. (Pause to Gag). The real question here is if Algore really created peace by making his movie a "Inconvenient Truth" or writing his book "HI I'm Algore and I am not a scientist"(book name unknown nor do I care). I really don't see anyone getting along anymore than we used to I think we tend to want to avoid "treehuggers" even more today than we did back in the '70's when Newsweek ran their article about Global Cooling. The truth be told Global Warming is good for us. Look what it did to get rid of the Ice Age. After a asteroid strike or a nuclear war we end up with freezing temperature and the next thing you know we have glaciers instead of high rise buildings in New York. The Ice Age happened ( and this is a fact) before there were any cars. Mankind has only been keeping track of daily average temperatures for the last 40 years or so not since he was painting pictures on cave walls and running from a T-rex all you can eat buffet. Let's go back to Al not being a scientist and his education. Al studied English as a major at Harvard and scored in the lower 5th of the class(toward the bottom) after serving time in Vietnam as a reporter Al went Vanderbilt University and studied law. No where in Wikipedia article that I read did I see Climatologist as a major or even that he had a chemistry set when he was a kid. Where Al gets his information from I can't say and I really don't think he does either. Is the world better off and now at peace because Algore woke up yesterday? No we still have terrorist trying to sneak into the country , drugs being smuggled across our borders and Britney Spears can't show up to a custody hearing on time. I think Al had better get to work.
