Al Gore

Just caught a few minutes of Rush's show for today; they have a guest host who mentioned Al Gore has said that global warming is a bigger threat to the world than terrorism.

Yeah, if you believe in global warming, that's pretty much undeniable. If you don't believe in global warming, it's laughable.

The conditions that have created the rise in Terrorism over the last three decades will undoubtedly change over the next three decades. Could get worse, could get better, but Terrorism is largely a social problem. And people can change pretty quickly.

On the other hand, the forces creating global warming (assuming you believe they exist) are environmental factors that may be very difficult to isolate let alone eliminate. And they seem to be operating on a global scale.

Of course the fill in jerk for Rush doesn't believe in Global Warming; so he naturally embarked on a self righteous rant about the families of the 9/11 victims. Apparently believing that global warming is a big threat also implies you believed that global warming is responsible for the twin towers being destroyed.

Um, ok.
