Al Gore on the Tonight Show

No scientific content, but some good humour. Check it out on Gristmill or Treehugger.

(I tried to upload it to Youtube, but it may be more than 10 minutes because it did not stay.)

    Coby, with the interest in Al Gore and the environment, you might like this petition asking the Fed. Gov. to promote cycling in Canada:

    Great ideas! I signed and passed the link on.

    I've decided, Coby, after reading the reactions to your comment at RP Jr's place, that the malinformed denialists and quibblers are obviously malinformed denialists and quibblers.

    Any smart folks and decisionmakers will see this. Therefore it is best to expend energy doing positive things rather than correcting ignorant denialist quibbling statements. Positive, in a Dano way, meaning framing strategies or framing ridicule. ;o)~

    Thank you for that comment over there, which initiated that thought process.

    I have to confess, I was a bit surprised (even after so many similar threads there and elsewhere) at all the objections to such a straight forward and simple concept! I put a few more comments in there since my name was invoked in so many replies..

    Great smiley, btw, don't think I've seen that one before.

    I note that the denialists are using the 2 RPs as a hang out these days. Elevating their environs isn't elevating their argumentation, however.

    I used to enjoy asking folks like that Alwyn to quote the passage in the book where it is stated that the "concencus" was made up. Of course he can't and he'll sputter and change the subject. Aside but related: I wrote an op-ed for our paper last week and I e-mailed a buddy with the expected reply, and it was very close. How did I do it? I used the denialist template we see in RP Jr's comment threads.

    Most of the denialists that I encounter are not professional scientists but laymen who barely graduated from high school. Those of us who are professional scientists can hold their breath until our faces turn blue to try to get these people to accept scientific facts rather than political fiction.

    I had a blog similar to this. I reposted the penny stock news. Blogger shut it down and claimed my hours of sitting in front of the computer were automated. Really was a bunch of BS. I hope you guys do not get that same treatment.
