Strange Bedfellows

I wrote about Al Gore’s energy consumption a few days ago. Now, the Wall Street Journal has taken a turn on their editorial page.

Mr. Gore is rich and fortunate enough to be able to afford the “carbon offset” for his energy indulgences. The middle-class parents who need a gas-guzzling SUV to haul the kids to soccer practice might not be so lucky. They might even settle for an unheated pool.

I am unaccustomed to agreeing with, or blazing the path for, the Journal’s editorial board. It’s arguably the most politically conservative daily editorial page in the country.

Of course that’s a large part of the problem with the whole human induced global warming debate. It has become a conservative vs. liberal bout – a political argument.

It’s really a scientific debate. Why has that been lost in all the noise?
