Say Gore doesn't believe it. Does his disbelief make it false? How could what Gore believes about a scientific question, one way or another, have any possible bearing on the truth of the matter? He has no advanced scientific education.

NO! NO! NO!
The "news media" is next to useless when explaining "scientific" principles. Our "lawmakers" are the same way when they attempt to legislate advances in technology by mandating CFLs and electric cars . . . they don't have the first understanding of basic scientific principles or common physics.

An advanced scientific education is not necessary. The job of an informed media is to make sufficient inquiries and explain the science to the people.

If they insist on continuing down this path, they should be prosecuted as were the people at Enron.

Following Hurricane Sandy’s massive devastation across the northeast, many were quick to tie it to “climate change” (you know, what “global warming” and the “new ice age” used to be.). In a blog post on Tuesday, former Vice President Al Gore wrote “Hurricane Sandy is a disturbing sign of things to come. We must heed this warning and act quickly to solve the climate crisis. Dirty energy makes dirty weather.”

Meghan McCain sarcastically weighed in on Twitter, “So are we still going to go with climate change not being real fellow republicans?”
