|It's a shame that certain issues end up becoming politicized. Like global warming. I wonder if this topic would've become as polarizing if Al Gore wasn't its spokesperson. What if it was Oprah instead? Would we pay attention and treat it like a real thing? Only if she hid prizes under our seats, I suppose.
And, related but unrelated, why must we focus on the actions of the spokesperson? Yes, Al Gore flies around the country in his jumbo jet, burning tons of carbon-based fuel so he can spread the message of the effects of carbon-based fuels on the environment. In that respect, he's a hypocrite. But that's beside the point. Regardless of whether or not he follows his own advice, he's still making a valid point. It sucks that everything comes down to political affiliation and finger-pointing. #politics
