Al Gore On Message: Will The Congress Listen

Sure it's cold out this winter, but don't you think video of a scientist lighting methane leaking out of arctic ice would get Congress' attention?

All Scientific theories should be subject to debate. Only Flat-Earthers think it's acceptable to declare that your side has a consensus and the debate is over.

The truth is that very little in the science arena is truly settled. If you'd like a little balance in your scientific information diet, please click on the following link:

Global warming seemed to get pushed to the back burner, so to speak, once the major economic crises took over the news. But obviously global warming is still an issue regardless of any economic problems that we're having. I hope Congress chooses to address it this session.

It is always fascinating to see the various requests to Congress. This Congressional session will perhaps be more interesting because of everything included in the stimulus bill and everything else that Congress will have to deal with. I'm curious to see how this particular Congress will handle all of the competing priorities. This issue in particular will probably inspire long debates if it is addressed at all.

The Democrats are touting their first 100 days as the time when they are going to get a tremendous amount accomplished. I hope they do accomplish something significant in the first 100 days. It seemed like the last Congress didn't accomplish much in all of 2008. I saw that the Friends of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is asking people to give their opinion on the most important thing for Congress to do in their first 100 days. Then they're going to work to get Congress to accomplish what the public actually wants them to do. If you think they should address global warming, make sure to add your opinion so Congress can know what our priorities are - http://www.friendsoftheuschamber.com/email/email4.cfm?id=200
