An Inconvenient Truth

But there is something tragic, even a little pathetic, about Gore’s stubborn faith in the ability of facts and reasoned argument to save the world.

The inconvenient truth is that we’re all going to die and nobody’s going to stop it. The inconvenient truth is that I am wasting carbon dioxide right now. The inconvenient truth is that facts and reality have nothing to do with policy and everything to do with pain.
