It seems that Vice-president Gore has not made enough money on his carbon credits, and that’s where the real failure lies.
In our opinion, the congressional lack of progress on this issue is a major success. Man-made global warming fits the template for most hoax-crises: It’s massive, it’s hard to understand, we need leaders to understand it and tell us what to do, the benefits accrue way down the road (for our children, typically) and oh yeah, it’s gonna cost you. The politics ran away with this problem years ago, and the people want no part of it. Gore, fortunately for us, unfortunately for him, has become something of a laughingstock. This may be his surrender speech.
