    Another urban myth. He never said that.

    Gore's actual claim, supported by no less an Internet luminary thant Vince
    Cerf, was "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the
    initiative in creating the Internet. I took the initiative in moving forward
    a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our
    country's economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our
    educational system." See http://www.snopes.com/quotes/internet.asp.

    He is listening to the scientists. It is a shame you clearly are not.
    Climatologists have been concerned about anthropegenically caused global
    warming for over fifty years. The studies in the peer reviewed literature
    are overwhelming in their conclusions. Next you'll be denying evolution.

    Denying reality is no way to preserve liberty. Humans have created the
    current climate change. Humans can and should do something about it.

    Bullshit. Twenty years ago they were worried about cooling.

    That myth is not supported in the peer reviewed literature. See
    http://ams.allenpress.com/archive/1520-0477/89/9/pdf/i1520-0477-89-9-1325.pdf.

    Ah, Fred Singer, one of the perpetrators and perpetuators of the "but they
    were worried about global cooling in the 1970s" myth debunked above,
    pretending that the 2,500 scientists of the IPCC and the 192 governmental
    representatives (one from every country in the world) that approved the
    wording of AR4, are engaged in a giant conspiracy to deprive the world of
    SUVs while he and his apolitical colleagues from the tobacco and Big
    Oil-funded right-wing think tank, the Heartland Institute, are bravely
    speaking out for science. As if.
