Al Gore’s Diminishing Returns
I actually liked An Inconvenient Truth. As long as you take it for what it is — infotainment — it is well done, and it gave me some helpful perspectives on the environment and the possible effects of human activities.
Problem is, however much I want to give consideration to Gore’s position, I want to do so less and less each time he submits a new op-ed or sound bite. And they each seem to get successively doomier and gloomier. The warnings of apocalypse sound crazier and crazier over time. And at some point people are going to grow to positively loathe “Baby 3000,” who ostensibly we are going to all this trouble for.
