    Talking The urgency of climate change; now funnier.

    I'm surprised I hadn't seen this mentioned on the forum yet.

    Al Gore is at the end of his rope.

    I understand his anger; the ignorance and apathy of the masses is only leading to the total destruction of the natural planet. People need to realize that there's something called the big picture; what they do in thier immediate lives may seem insignificant and unworthy to them, but on the global scale it has devestating effects. Hopefully Al Gore will find more support in the near future, or better yet, less people will ignore the dangerous problem of global warming.

    He's been dealing with it longer than I've been alive, and to watch things go backward instead of forward, it is difficult for me to imagine to aggravation.

    But he's usually so stiff and unimposing, it was funny to hear him cut loose.

    His opposition has done a great job of making him appear ridiculous and its got to him, I dont blame him for his reaction.

    Although to be honest there's realpolitik involved in this too, even if the west could be presuaded of this and the US sign up to kyoto etc. the Chinese are going to pursue development which will have consequences whatever happens or is agreed.

    That may be true, but if the major polluters each refuse to risk being the only one that reduces pollution they'll playing the prisoner's dilemma with the whole world.

    Gore does a hell of a job making himself look ridiculous. He hardly needs anyone else's help to accomplish that feat. His ability to look foolish is as natural as the fluctuation of the Earth's climate.
