Great survey of the situation. And he's right as rain--which has indeed broken records in these parts.

Think of the climate change humanity has witnessed during its time on Earth.
Homo sapiens appeared around 200,000 years ago and a lot of climate change has happened since then, but we're still here.

Only in the past 8,000 years has climate stabilized at a point favorable to the development of agriculture and human civilization.

And now some of us are ready to trash all that, at the cost of millions of lives and vast treasure...when solutions cost almost nothing.

Blah blah blah.... Is the sky falling too? I guess liberals and enviro-whackos aren't smart enough to realize that they are being fed a load of bs by your boy Gore. It's amazing that they get their panties in a wad over corporate profits but say nothing about the millions and millions of dollars he has made dishing out this con. You guys deserve whatever oppression you get. You all should do your part to reduce your global footprint by eliminating yourselves from this planet.

Despite much better tornado prediction methods, over 500 people AREN'T here in a couple of months of tornadoes. Good thing the South & Midwest aren't as populated as other places. However, Massachusetts & California are more populated.......

Your reply makes no sense. I guess there is an association between people who believe this nonsense and lower intelligence levels. I do have a question for you though, is being stupid kind of like walking around high all the time? It must be fun for you but it's getting too expensive for us. You need hurry up and off yourself.

And now there's almost 7 billion of us wandering around.

As someone who sounds both stupid and high, you could answer your own question if you could get past your inability for introspection.

"Gorebull warming"? "Liberal enviro-wackos getting rich dishing out a con"? So antique.
