Al the visionary
Al Gore has a new book out, Our Choice, placing another plank in his platform bringing awarness to "global warming" or "climate change." Adding to his Oscar winning documentary, An Inconvienient Truth, he furthers his cause.
His efforts since the diasterous 2000 Presidential election has brought prominence to a man who was cheated out of our nation's highest office. Many people in Tennessee, however, do not think he's playing with a full deck and further attack him personally. Calling "global warming" a "myth," he's labeled as a "snake oil salesman," huckster," "profiteer" and worse.
Comparisons to Galileo and Columbus who during their time were accepted with as much rancor and hatred may be a bit dramatic. His cover story in this week's Newsweek has him speaking about global warming sounding like he's done his homework. He ventures way beyond humans changing to a lower wattage light bulb.
If his evidence, paradigms, models and theories are all "smoke and mirrors," he'd fool even Einstein. Mr. Gore is certainly onto something and may be visionary for all humanity to take heed and notice his message.
