"I don't want to diminish the threat of terrorism at all, it is extremely serious, but on a long-term global basis, global warming is the most serious problem we are facing."
It's a damn shame that Al Gore is not our president right now. I'm speaking (of course) from the point-of-view of any mentally unstable terrorist who thinks that blowing up a wedding ceremony is a good way to make a point.
The refusal of the US and Australia to sign the Kyoto pact that Gore helped draft clearly annoys the former US vice-president. He draws parallels between those who dispute global warming, and its investment implications, with Neville Chamberlain and others who wanted to appease the Nazis before World War II.
Ahh, it has been a few weeks since we had a Nazi reference. In 1997, the US Senate shot down Gore's Kyoto mess in a vote that went 95-0 against ratifying the pact. Personally, I think the best way to fight global-warming is to keep Mr. Gore's mouth shut.
