To Senator James Inhofe's (R-OK) feeble assertion that there are still record low temperatures being set across the country each year (and therefore, he feels, global warming could not possibly be happening), all Al Gore could offer was to DO LUNCH with the Senator and a mutual friend named "Doug Coe" (sp?) so they could go over the issues "without microphones or cameras."

Say what?

They let him get away with that gratuitous line, disingenuous (to the public), and many others. This whole event was a shameless sham, a plug for nuclear power and coal (which needs nuclear power, lest it be the ugliest duckling in town). Renewables were given short-shrift when they were mentioned at all.

The next day, John Edwards' wife announced a return of her cancer. Cancer is the #1 epidemic in this country, it will kill approximately 25% to 40% of us, and many of the rest will have cancer, or will have had cancer, when they die.

At low doses -- the doses you get in your day-to-day life -- radiation is probably at least a hundred times more capable of inducing cancer than official government statistics admit, especially for fetuses and infants.

Al Gore could study this, and talk about it to Congress, but he comes from the "Oak Ridge" area of Tennessee, where, he joked, "we're immune to radiation."


Funny funny.

In reality, Al Gore offers NOTHING to environmentalists but more of the same. He scares no one, certainly not anyone in Congress or the nuclear industry, or ANY polluting industry, with his "environmentalism."

It's small wonder that the Nuclear Energy Institute was taking out ads on CNN the day Al Gore was speaking to Congress, full of bouncing babies and young moms in the park and proclamations that nuclear power is necessary for a clean tomorrow.

Nuclear power is STILL not a solution to our energy needs OR our environmental needs. It does not solve global warming. It's a killer.

And Al Gore is still full of hot air.
