    I was clicking thru channels and landed on the "FAUX" news channel...when al at once.....
    along the bottom, the ticker read:
    something with regards to the current "global warming/planet changes"
    being far worse than the threat from "Nazi Germany"...?
    Did I miss something?
    I mean huh?
    Say what?
    I've about heard it all now!
    This is just ludicrous!

    Al Gore said it was like getting the UK to take the threat from Nazi Germany seriously, I take it he was talking about the era of appeasement. I think it's a pretty lousy metaphor.

    Al Gore on Tuesday compared the battle against climate change with the struggle against the Nazis.
    The former vice president said the world lacked the political will to act and invoked the spirit of Winston Churchill by encouraging leaders to unite their nations to fight climate change.
    He also accused politicians around the world of exploiting ignorance about the dangers of global warming to avoid difficult decisions.
    Speaking at Britain's Oxford University at the Smith School World Forum on Enterprise and the Environment, sponsored by the Times of London, Gore said, "Winston Churchill aroused this nation in heroic fashion to save civilization in World War II."
    He added, "We have everything we need except political will, but political will is a renewable resource."
    Gore admitted that it was difficult to persuade the public that the threat from climate change was as urgent as the threat from Nazi Germany.

    Faux news loves to scare people, all news channels do but fox seems particularly fond of it. I vividly remember them covering the swine flu with "Is this the new black death".
