So do I. So do a lot of people.
But Al Gore's words aren't helping solve the climate crisis. In fact, they're hurting. His allies aren't covering him any more, and his allies are using him as the butt of jokes. Yes, Gore-o-phobia is unfair. But it's real, and he needs to deal with it.
We all need to, by taking Al Gore from the field of political battle. Bodily, if need be.
Some headlines from his latest outburst. “Climate change skeptics are like racists” – TG Daily. The same headline is on the Daily Caller. “Meat = Global Warming” – Consumer Freedom. “You Knew This Was Coming” – PowerLine.
Now I know these are not friendly outlets. But Al Gore has become on the environment what Fonda became on Vietnam. Always the enemy, and always the excuse for ignoring anything not only they say but anyone they know says.
Jonathan Moorman of “Ology” was pretty calm about it. “When you start comparing your opponents to racists, you know what that does? End the conversation outright and force everyone away from the middle.”
Al Gore needs a nice big cup of STFU.
