I'm not trying to start any arguments here, I just really don't understand. I do think he is overzealous about the global warming, and some things they blame on global warming probably aren't. But is it so bad to want to do what we can to protect the earth? I admit I haven't followed the Al Gore thing too closely, but I understand that he is kind of crazy about the global warming thing lol. Just trying to gain some insight here on what others think.

I like him. Passionate yes. That could be described as overzealous perhaps. But he has a very good message and one that needs to be heard. Politics, religion, family, and other issues most of us find important are not going to be worth much if we destroy our environment. We will be too busy struggling for survival, or worse extinct, to care about those issues any more. So yes, I think Gore is a relevant person in the political arena.

I am with the first poster! He was at Harvard or some college a while back and while he gave a speech on global warming and the need for people to cut back, he had 4 or 5 SUVS parked outside RUNNING so they would be warm when he got out. The speech was like 2 hrs long! But he isn't the only one, Sheryl Crow with her "people should use one square of toilet paper" while she has TWO carbon spewing tour buses!

It's probably just because he's such a self-important pompous asshole. It's hard to take any message from a person you find reptilianly icky.
