In this week’s round-up you can learn about the Green Guilt-o-meter, the mortal enemy of the biosphere and how much fun it’s possible to have have with alliteration and Richard Branson. Last week Magnus at Klimathot called me a Skeptikerpunk. Thanks Magnus, I think. Become beveraged, citizens, for it all starts here…
Part One: Al Gore & Friends
Pity the poor Goreacle. His climate crisis is all but forgotten as America erupts over Obamacare, yet still he blogs from his lonely mansion, desperately hoping to mobilize the two or three people that remember Waxman-Malarkey. Another tough break for Al is that a couple of Irish folk have set a release date for their little film ‘Not Evil, Just Wrong’, which promises to be An Inconvenient Truth about An Inconvenient Truth, if you know what I mean. And I think you do.
The Weekly Round-Up is unkind to Al Gore several times a week, and sometimes we (almost) feel bad about it. So let’s take time to celebrate an anniversary with Al. Summer 2009 is the 20th Anniversary of the first time we were warned we only had 10 years to fix global warming. Happy Annniversary, Jim and Al. OK, enough empathy, on with the mocking. Al has a new green initiative. It’s green (of course) and looks like grassroots. But, look a little closer and it’s clear that Al is endorsing some pretty un-American activity. The .eco domain might be all over the Interwebs if Al and some of his friends have their way. I indicated last week was a good idea because then we’d have a place to store the cyber-hippies. Not all greens think the .eco is a good idea, they don’t want to ‘ghetto-ize Green‘. One quick aside to greens – you might want to rethink the label ‘ghetto‘. Together with the free abuse of label ‘denier’ it’s beginning to look like you’ve got a nasty underlying problem. Canuckian fruit-fly expert David Suzuki is a tool. Or something.
