The planet has gone through far worse than what we're putting it through. Ice ages, movement of tectonic plates, so on and so forth. Some greenhouse gases are not the biggest problem facing the world. And even so, Al Gore is informed on global warming. Big deal. Maybe if he wanted to talk about something relevant to the betterment of this COUNTRY, then maybe I would listen to him. But telling me that "The planet has a fever" isn't exactly my idea of someone who should hold the highest office in the world.
Actually Gore's been pimpin' global warming for nearly 2 decades
One of the consequences of global warming is ice ages. Alaska and England are on similiar lines of latitude, so why the difference in climate? A little thing called the Ocean Conveyor. Pray that it doesn't stop moving in your lifetime.
Do not make the mistake of thinking of plate tectonics in the past tense. The ground is moving under you right now, at a very slow rate.
Guess how many people in this country live within 50 miles of a coast? Answer: nearly half. Rising sea levels will be a major problem for THIS COUNTRY.
Every other industralized nation in the world acknowledges and has pledged to try and curb global warming (see Kyoto Protocol). Perhaps a person who understands global responsibility should have the highest office in the world.
Whether you hate him or love him, Mutt's "bukkaked with stupid" is a contender for post of the year. I don't necessarily agree with his delivery, but the humor is quality.
And he still had time to develop the internet?
