No More Gore [in the news]

The Failure of Al Gore: Part One.

Few celebrity cause leaders have had more or better publicity than Gore has had for his climate advocacy. Hailed by the world press, lionized by the entertainment community and the Global Assemblage of the Great and the Good as incarnated in the Nobel Peace Prize committee, he has nevertheless seen the movement he led flounder from one inglorious defeat to the next. …

The state of the global green movement is shambolic. …

It is hard to think of any recent failure in international politics this comprehensive, this swift, this humiliating. Two years ago almost every head of state in the world was engaged with Al Gore’s issue; today the abolition of nuclear weapons looks like a more hopeful cause than the drafting of an effective international treaty that will curb carbon emissions even a little bit.

Something happened about two years ago, something unrelated to the economy. What was it? Something about emails, perhaps? Oh, yes: Climategate.

Funny how that works (too bad it doesn’t work that way more quickly and more often). A hypocritical con artist is exposed as such, and now no one pays him any attention. What a shame.
