Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy.

Gore's Hot Summer

Richard S. Lindzen, Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Atmospheric Science at MIT, writes in a WSJ editorial:

A general characteristic of Mr. Gore's approach is to assiduously ignore the fact that the earth and its climate are dynamic; they are always changing even without any external forcing. To treat all change as something to fear is bad enough; to do so in order to exploit that fear is much worse.

...

"Lastly, there is a clear attempt to establish truth not by scientific methods but by perpetual repetition. An earlier attempt at this was accompanied by tragedy. Perhaps Marx was right. This time around we may have farce if were lucky." [Read]

What is all of this going to do to Gore's campaign as the world's brightest, most passionate environmentalist title. (He may still be the brightest 'environmentalist'.)

Apparently, Richard S. Lindzen is a ClearPolitics fan.
