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?
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...
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?
