The man is making a fool of himself. I really hope someone (like me) is around to dredge up silly things like this that he's said over the years when people finally wake up to the sham that is anthropogenic global warming.
"Did he say that?" interrupted Gore, whose film about global warming, "An Inconvenient Truth," grossed $23.7 million. "He's not sure it's caused by humans?"That kind of elitist attitude is plain sickening. Not only does he have the gall to ridicule someone over something that the jury is still most definitely out on, but he does it in the most condescending way possible.
"He's not convinced that it's caused by human beings," responded Nickels.
"C'mon! And this man is a United States congressman?" asked Gore. "You know, 15 percent of people believe the moon landing was staged on some movie lot and a somewhat smaller number still believe the Earth is flat. They get together on Saturday night and party with the global-warming deniers."
I, for one, am not willing to let Al Gore decide any sort of scientific fact for me, invention of the internet notwithstanding.
One of these days folks are going to be hearing predictions of global cooling and the evils of ethanol or biodiesel...and then you can remember. You heard it here first.
