      "Al Gore uses more energy than 30 regular people" or whatever the 'factoid' lie of the day is.

      How does that make a difference regarding the entire planet heating up?  Glaciers melting? Sea levels rising? Coral dying?  Agriculture drying up?

      The level of abject ignorance just makes me crazy.
      What really depresses me though, is how common that level of ignorance is when you talk with people about this stuff.
