So is Al Gore lying now?
Or was he lying then? The problem with such a confession is obvious. How do we know he's not saying things for political reasons now? Saying you changed your mind because of this or that belief or because of evidence is one thing. Admitting you were just wrong is fine, though rare. But saying you only said something that was part of your effort to save the world because of politics sort of makes me wonder - is it no longer about politics? Or more to the point, is any of it not about politics? Al Gore is a one man circus star who is largely to blame for the amount of skepticism average thinking people have about MMGW. Send him packing, and more folks might be willing to sit down and have a listen.
