The last time Al Gore came to Capitol Hill--six years ago--he was there to certify the electoral college results that made George Bush president.Triumphant return, eh? Who the heck is paying any attention to that loser of the ratings Katie Couric? She's got more readers of her blog than viewers of her news, but then why should that matter to her? It's all more money in her bank.
But today it was a triumphant return, this time as a private citizen, to declare that the world faces a "planetary emergency" over climate change. And now, a lot of his skeptics agree that Gore makes a powerful point.
The scientific consensus is clear, and Gore urged Congress to listen to scientists, not special interests. He pushed for an immediate freeze on greenhouse gases, as well as cleaner power plants, more efficient cars, and stronger conservation efforts.
Yeah, Kates babe, stifle the science that disproves all the global warming crap while sycophantic greenies like you huddle together to keep the panic alive for rakin' in the bucks.
