Inventing the Truth One Carbon Footprint at a Time

Here's hoping Al Gore's internet invention will counterbalance the fabricated glory he has received in 2007.

"I believe our children and grandchildren will look back at the year 2007 and ask one of two questions," said Gore, who shared the prize with the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for raising awareness of global warming.

"Either they will ask about us -- What were they doing? What were they thinking about and how could they let that catastrophe happen? Didn't they listen to the scientists? Didn't they see the glaciers and polar caps melting? Didn't they see the fires?

"Or will they ask another question. I want them to look back at 2007 and ask: 'How did they find the moral courage to rise up and solve the problem everyone said was impossible to solve?"'

Speaking at a conference on climate change, Gore renewed a proposal for world leaders to hold crisis meetings every three months to work quickly to find solutions to slow global warming.

When Al Gore and some of the idiot celebrities that support him actually practice what they preach, then I might give a damn about what they have to say.
