re: #298 BigPapa

Al Gore was (hopefully) the last of my dogmatic reactions to an issue because of a person. He’s a dolt, a board, and probably not going to ever get my vote. But I am guilty of denying AGW for a further period of time because he was a proponent of the theory, and I was against him. That was my bad. He is on the right side of the issue even if he’s on the wrong side of tactics or tact.

I’ll still make fun of him if it amuses me, at his expense. But whether he was a ratfucker, literally or figuratively, means shit.

Your story is a perfect example of the kind of harm Gore has done. People naturally figure that if “they” have to fudge their case, then “they” are blowing smoke. It makes it just that much harder to penetrate to the truth of the matter.

Gore was right about this much—-that AGW is real and it’s dangerous.
