Its an insult only to those who believe that Al Gore doesn't know what he is talking about. He does and soon there will be no doubt that he and the thousands of climate researchers are correct. By then the planet is going to be in real distress, and population unrest will follow. Its already plainly in view. Add up the costs of these extreme weather events, billions for the drought, billions for each of the super hurricanes, billions for the flooding. Expenses to dredge the Mississippi river because the water is so low they had to shut down barge traffic between Cairo Illinois and St Louis. The forest fires that raged through the southwest and Colorado....just a taste of what is coming.
