Go Al

When a flat earth Republican moron tried to refute Gore's assertion today that the scientific consensus supports global warming by pointing to the handful of scientific oddballs the Republicans dredged up to testify that it doesn't exist, Al blandly replied:

"There are people who still believe that the moon landing was staged on a movie lot in Arizona.”

One of the greatest achievements in modern politics is the PoMo "he said/she said" competing narratives perfected by the right, particularly when it comes to science. It comes from their big business owners after the consumer revolution, which learned early on to use this method in litigation. Now it's metastasized throughout the body politic.

Good for Gore for dismissing this nonsense.
