Gore-as-Cassandra brought the "Inconvenient" news to Congress yesterday. House members seemed to accept Gore's sounding of a "planetary emergency." Yet in spite of a verbal box on the ears from Senate Committee Chair Barbara Boxer (D-Cal.), doubter James Inhofe (R-Okla.) continued to cry hoax.
If Gore is right and "Inconvenient" is true -- and nearly all scientists say that's so -- isn't it time to stop sparring and start doing something?
Cassandra, recall, was right, but by the time others got it, it was too late.
