I will buy Gore's presentation of the global warming situation long before I will buy yours. Gore has actually taken the time to learn about the subject in the last twenty five years. You've spent a few minutes on Google looking for some anti-Gore shit to sling. Hardly makes your case that he wrong, or somehow an evil dude, credible.

And, given the consequences if Gore is correct, how is it wise to ignore the issue? How far above sea level do you live anyway?

The response by the anti-Gore crowd is predictably shallow. You, JE, dislike him because he claims he invented the internet, eh? If this is an example of the thoroughness that you research such claims and base your opinions on, then maybe it isn't just US politics and social issues that you are not really qualified to post about. God knows, you can and do, but it would seem your ability to sort facts from spinning fictions makes all your posts suspect. Jim

More mind reading from Jimmy. I read each article before I post it, the point was made in the second article (it is in bold for you) that Alfred Nobel made certain conditions for the awarding of the Peace Prize, NONE of which Gore fulfilled. Please put your bifocals on and read the fine print.

The Nobel committee that selected Gore probably differs with you on that point, whether bolded or not. And their opinion counts, while yours doesn't. I think setting up international cooperation to understand and possibly offset the effects of our successful population growth and the accompanying growth in industrialization of of the world's population to ensure the survival of humankind is significant.

The process of debating and allowing scientific theories to be tested by peer reviews has served us well. Your objections to the theory might be more effective if they were provided with proposals to test the theory. Much remains unknown and without further scientific study the answers won't be forthcoming. It may well be that the whole idea is either hopeless or it is bullshit. But in the face of the body of evidence Gore describes, to just chant "bullshit!" in one form or another without exercising the Scientific Method, is plainly ignorant.

But hey, he lost you when he said he invented the internet, right?

Jim
Arguing w/ Smitty about the scientific method
is like trying to reason w/ a rabid dog: Neither really wants to hear what you actually have to say...

Scientific Method?

My cerebral cortex is slowly dissovling
(because of a question that needed resolving)
in one-molar solution of H2-SO4;
hypotheses to verify,
my questing mind to edify,
to supplement my scientific lore.

The required anesthetic would cost me too much,
so he whacked my parietal bone with a crutch.
Though I had many qualified docs on my list,
I hired a handyman
who lived in his van,
for each surgeon I called just refused to assist.

The carpenter bored into my skull with great care,
extracted the fluid and poured acid in there.
The acid could not be allowed to spill out;
so he plugged up the hole
with an old lump of coal,
for no suitable stoppers were lying about.

If my experiment went as I suspected
(and surely it would, I fully expected),
my melted brain would leak out through my ear.
not to be satirical,
but rather, empirical,
for I wanted my facts to be clear.

When I woke the next morning, sprawled out on the floor,
I sensed a dull throb in my head; nothing more.
Barely, I was able to handle the ache.
So I recorded officially
that nothing happened initially;
it was, after all, for science's sake.

Suspecting the chemicals wouldn't combine,
I shook up my head, and let out a whine--
because, rather quickly, the pressure increased.
I should have known,
I said with a groan;
when those compounds reacted, a gas was released.

I awaited the leakage of ooze from my ear,
but that wouldn't happen, I started to fear.
My thoracic cavity spasmed with dread,
for the solvent had strayed
and begain to invade
paranasal sinuses instead.

The liquified cerebrum ran from my nose
much like the flow of H2O from a hose.
With a whole box of tissues I tried to contain
the greyish-green mud slide,
'til I realized with pride,
I must have hadide,
'til I realized with pride,
I must have had a gargantuan brain!

The result of the trial quite clearly shows
(excuse me a minute while I blow my nose)--
I think I've misplaced my notebook and pen.
I'm a bit absent-minded,
so I must be reminded--
why did I do this experiment again?

I have a hard time believing that all of you Al Gore detractors have actually missed the point. Do you really not understand why the man has won award after award after award for his film?

And please, let someone with a more impressive resume than Al Gore fire the first shot for once.
