You can call Al “Daddy.”
by J.A. Myerson
This is one of the gutsiest, most impressive things I have seen Al Gore do in a decade of gutsy-impressive things:
Instead of relying on science, President Obama appears to have bowed to pressure from polluters who did not want to bear the cost of implementing new restrictions on their harmful pollution—even though economists have shown that the US economy would benefit from the job creating investments associated with implementing the new technology. The result of the White House’s action will be increased medical bills for seniors with lung disease, more children developing asthma, and the continued degradation of our air quality.
“Elder statesman of a political party” is not customarily a job within whose confines one publicly attributes widespread sickness to the cowardice of that party’s leader. No: that job is called “activist,” and I’m so glad Al Gore knows which of those he wants to be.
Toward a world in which everyone is an activist!
