Albert the Great!
We all share this little rock in space and we all need to work together to keep from fouling the nest. The Earth does not care if you believe in Gore's message or not. We either suck it up, and act like we have balls, and save ourselves or mother nature, that cruel beast, will let us die off and replace us with something else. Cheers Mr Gore!
Now we all need to take a page or two from Mr. Gore's play-book. Not the climate change play-book, but the life play-book. Al Gore, like James Carter before him, lost an election, turned right around, and decided to change the world anyway. These guys are real Americans. Smart people tend to have happier and better lives than dunces. I am not talking about money either. Look at Spears or Paris Hilton, or Bush. Lots of doe and little brains are a disaster waiting to happen. Idiots with lots of cash tend to leave a trail of tears behind them.
But people like Gore and Carter, fly above the slime that catches the rest. It is not as if these guys are saints. Neither one has a halo growing out of his head. But they can get up there because they have the right stuff. And what is the right stuff? It is certainly not political power, money, or influence. Lots of people have that and are fatally mired in the slime pit. I think it is that these men and others like them, have caught hold of the fleeting tendrils of righteousness. To catch hold of righteousness is to surrender to it. Right action can never be made to bend to the desires of he or she that takes a hold of it. On the contrary to do what is right puts you into it's service.
Will Gore save the world, or mankind? Who can say. But I do know that he using his existence to further the cause of human life on Earth. He is not the first to do this, nor will he be the last. However he will be counted on the positive side of humanities balance sheet. While others of his generation will slip off the bottom into a bottomless sea of red ink.
