There are several elements that have intrigued me about this event, but I’ll comment on just one (for now): former Vice-President Al Gore’s delivery of his environmental propaganda.
“Green” Gore passionately delivered his mantra:
“The evidence is there. The signal is on the mountain. The trumpet has blown. The scientists are screaming from the rooftops. The ice is melting. The land is parched. The seas are rising. The storms are getting stronger. Why do we not judge what is right?”
But rather than picking apart his flawed analysis of environmental issues, I just want to make one point.
Here’s his classic statement of the day [speaking of Republican-leaning, conservative Southern Baptist leaders] :
"When did people of faith get so locked in to an ideological coalition that they got to go along with the wealthiest and most powerful who don't want to see change of the kind that's aimed at helping the people and protecting God's green earth?”
That was said at a $35 a plate luncheon [salad and chicken], that excluded at least half of the registered participants. I’m left wondering, has “Green” Gore starting waiving his speaking fee?
