Potshots at the messenger: another comparison of Al Gore to Adolf Hitler

it23470.jpgWhat’s a nice little documentary about saving the world got to do to get a little respect these days? Think Progress unearths a “leading climate skeptic” makes a direct comparison in the Washington Post magazine between Al Gore and Adolf Hitler. ah2398.jpg“[M]eteorologist Bill Gray – one of the most prominent climate skeptics” writes, bizarrely: “Gore believed in global warming almost as much as Hitler believed there was something wrong with the Jews.” Opines the site, “It’s telling that so many of the attacks on Al Gore and his movie are ad hominem, not substantive. There really is no credible scientific rebuttal to An Inconvenient Truth, so people are forced to attack the messenger.” Last week, an ExxonMobil consultant on Fox made a similar comparison, and now it’s in the pages of the Washington Post, no less. What next, geriatric columnists getting damp over Hilary Clinton’s “lemon-yellow pantsuit”? I know, I know. Unthinkable.

    Mars in undergoing global warming as well. There are no SUVs on Mars afaik. Perhaps the sun has more influence than we want to believe in our mememe-centered world. Perhaps this is much more out of our control than we’d like to believe.

    To compare Gore to Hitler is outrageous and ridiculous. I would imagine Jews, or anyone else touched by Hitler and the Holocaust, would find such a comparison sickening.
    Regarding the validity of human-caused climate change – I wonder – how many scientists does it take to figure out that if you continuously use and abuse something, it will just wear out? I have designer shoes I treat with more respect than we treat our environment. A few small changes could improve things or at least slow it down – so why the fight against healthier living?

“The difference between poetry and prose, and why if you’re not acculturated to poetry, you might resist it: that page is frightening. Why is it not filled? The two categories of people who don’t feel that way are children and prisoners. So many prison poets; they see that gap and experience it differently. I’m for the gap!”
