  •  Disappointment with Mr. Gore? His acquiescent fail (0+ / 0-)

    If memory serves, Mr. Gore was the person or entity "with standing"  that could have challenged the court rulings that doomed his election to the presidency.  He declined.

    Then, he starts a media enterprise, a tame puppy of a "alternative media" effort.  Nada.  Fail.  Sells it to a media company owned by Qatar, one of the worlds biggest oil country-companies.  

    In the interim he cranks out books and makes appearances around the ideas central to sustainability and ecological  responsibility.  Meanwhile unclear if he is riding the movement or contributing substantially to it.

    Yhana, yhanna, yhanna, IMO.

      People who know say he's absolutely not fullashit.

      He's respected by legit climate scientists for being a potent, credible source on climate and energy.

      He was and is central/key in making the movement you think he's "riding".

      You wanted him to appeal the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling?  Really?  To whom?  He didn't "decline" the fight.  He fought for weeks and weeks, and the Supreme Court ruled for that filthy idiot Bush.

      Gore did everything but start an armed rebellion to get the office to which he'd been elected.  I don't blame him for not asking people to attack the Supreme Court building.
