That’s a stupid question. The real question that I should be asking is why is the British Government paying former Vice President Al Gore to advise on environmental matters? We recall now that the former Veep’s credentials include a career in the Senate, eight years of being Bill Cliton’s understudy, a failed attempt to be President, followed by another failed attempt to be President a day later, and then self-aggrandizement disguised as an educational powerpoint and lecture series that you have to be 7 dollars for a the cinema.

Yes: this ran long.
