Nobel Peace Prize Winner and Environmental Guru?
There was a blip on the radio this morning (and an article by the Associated Press in most papers) that Barak O'Bama will ask Al Gore to serve on a post in his Cabinet if he becomes President. As much as folks love to make fun of Mr. Nobel Peace Prize Winner, he's accomplishing what he set out to do -- inform the world about Climate Change and Global Warming. Yes, folks love to make of Global Warming too..."maybe the sun's just getting hotter" or "maybe you're brain is frying in the heat." I'll just bet its those same jokesters paying aboslutely no attention to how their daily actions are affecting the planet. Mr. Gore is making some good points backed by scientific evidence. If you haven't had a chance to read much about him and his preachings, now is the time to do so! Especially if one of our Presidential candidates is willing to go out on a limb and make a statement like this (does that say something about O'Bama and his beliefs in the environment and Global Warming?) And one last note on the political side of things and the environment. Hiliary's former Law Firm, Rose Law, is the firm that backs Monsanto who is (in my opinion) one of the top destroyers of mother earth. John McCain will likely continue President Bush's legacy of who-really-cares-much-about-the-enviornment. I can't even find much on McCain's position on the environment. The two presidential candidates that actually showed some concern for the environment are pretty much out of the picture at this point -- John Edwards and Huckabee. I say we join the ranks that are pushing Al Gore to run for President.
