Hypocrisy: An Inconvenient Truth

Al Gore won an Oscar last night for his "documentary" on global warming, "An Inconvenient Truth."

His personal use of electricity and natural gas are proof once again that global warming is about a lot of hot air.

I admit being concerned about global warming, but I am by no means panicky about it. The prognosticators of gloom and doom, so pervasive among the Left, don't have a good enough track record to warrant much confidence in the accuracy of their dire predictions. Moreover, today's apocalyptic rantings about melting icecaps and flooded coastal regions and whatever are usually spewed forth by the spiritual descendants of the nuclear-freeze proponents who, back in the 1980s, shrieked about what a reckless gunslinger Ronald Reagan was, and how his policies were certain to anger the Soviets and probably lead to the destruction of the human race. And finally, the very fact that global warming has become the latest cause-du-jour of the Hollywood crowd is enough, in my view, to convince me that it does not deserve to be taken as seriously as they take it.

I have never seen "An Inconvenient Truth," nor do I expect to. If I did, though, I would probably find it scary, in much the same way as, say, a Bela Lugosi film. The fact that it now has been awarded an Oscar does absolutely nothing to enhance its credibility -- not in my book, anyway.
