Jamie, that was really well-written. I wonder if Mr Gore has broached the subject that third world growth is a bigger problem than first world growth, or mentioning that we can get by without most of the people on this earth because they're too dumb to contribute something. I wonder if he mentioned the the OLPC and other feel-good projects are just making the global warming situation worse. I wonder if, like Plato, he knows that the only society which avoids long-term problems is an oppressive one. In short, I wonder if he's a philosopher or just a cheerleader, but either way I'm applauding him (and you for that article, which is as I say, well-written).
