That dauntless champion of educating the people on the sad realities of climate change, Al Gore, is going to broadcast a presentation every hour for twenty-four hours in twenty-four time zones from Wednesday to Thursday:

The idea is to raise Americans' awareness of climate change, which he has been trying to do for the last thirty years, but unfortunately with little success.   

Basically, Gore is going to argue the connection between more extreme weather and climate change.

Let's hope that this time he finally manages to convince the skeptics and get the ball rolling on programmes to address the very real environmental problems facing our world.

Not one skeptic will change their mind. The science, the facts, are irrelevant. They must protect their conspiracy at all costs.

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.   Isaac Asimov

I've often thought that had Gore become president, he'd likely never have become such a crusader for awareness of the need to act to alleviate global warming.


Perhaps his losing that election may ultimately prove far more significant in our ultimate survival as a species...if we heed his warnings, that is, which as MM suggests currently appears doubtful.

>>>>>>>>>> I agree. Since that election he had more time to follow his passion. If only he could inject some "Life" to his speech, he would have gotten more attention. ;-)


This is a worthy cause..
