Vindication at last!

Now I’m not the only one who thought Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth was meretricious dreck, let alone Oscar-worthy. Of course my objections were largely aesthetic while his are… er… meteorological. Even the British courts are getting the picture. Will my colleagues in the Academy wake up too? [Not a chance. -ed. You cynic, you.]

UPDATE: To be clear, as fatuous and self-promotional as Gore may be, that doesn’t make him wrong any more than it makes him right about global warming. For reasons of prudence, common sense and geopolitics, energy conservation plus encouraging new technologies are a definite “yes” from my perspective
