    Do those who believe in man-made global warming think that Al Gore is a good representative for...

    the "Green" movement?

    I think that the DEAFENING silence from Gore speaks volumes about the scam that IS global warming. The green movement is another way for social justice progressives to lower our standard of living, and as a resident of WV, where MUCH coal is STILL left to be mined, the "green" movement is decimating the economy of my state. Oh, if Gore were truly concerned about rising seas due to global warming, WHY did he buy an ocean front mansion that uses more energy to heat and cool than some small towns do?????

    He probably isn't. He has too much political baggage, and his fancy house does not help his credibility. But I'm not sure if it matters who serves as a representative of those who believe in climate change. The main thing that determines whether or not someone accepts the climate change thesis is political ideology, not science. Most people have limited knowledge of climatology, so they gravitate toward the opinions that are consistent with their worldview. And as with all things political, all of the arguments in the world are not going to change deeply held beliefs:

    He's softer than butter on the table in a hot summer day. He should do something involving kids, perhaps babysit or something like that ... read stories ...

    I am still quite skeptical on the global warming concept. I think far too many good scientists will tell you that the information used for the basis of analysis is statistically flawed and that many who can prove it are not willing to speak out for fear of losing their project grants in other areas.  Look beyond the environmental concerns and follow the money line...there are billions upon billions of dollars at stake here especially if Cap & Trade regulations are put into place. This step alone will create a virtual stock market for carbon credits which folks like Al Gore and others are already conveniently set up to broker and skim a percentage fee off the top.  Mankind does not possess enough evidence nor enough knowledge to accurate analyze that evidence to truly determine what effect if any mankind is having on the environment and atmosphere. Honestly, there is a given level of arrogance displayed here to think that mankind possess enough impact to seriously offset the forces of Mother Nature.  If you follow the money, you will find far more in this game are playing on the hearts and minds of those who do care and are very happy with selling books, taking donations, etc. etc. in the name of environmentalism. In some circles we call that taking advantage of the naive. WB

    He's chosen to play a role in bringing awareness and its not believe it's a reality, just look at the planet; facts speak for itself.

    There are many people that point this out, however because they don't have celebrity status they're not given credit and are void. Do you think that's fair?

    I think that global warming is virtually a moot point - it doesn't really matter whether or not the planet is warming or cooling. Fossil fuels pollute, they will at some point run out, they have been a major motivating force in every global conflict for the past 100 years, costing human lives, costing tax payers billions and billions of dollars... whatever your motivation I think if we can all agree that there are better solutions than digging and burning for our energy needs... then we can work from there.

    Al Gore, he's dry and boring, he did his job, but he's not rallying any real support or motivating anyone to make any type of real change.
