Al living large and sitting in the sun


With turning the page on the calendar, it’s time to take our annual whack at Al Gore. Fortunately, he has been mostly quiet of late, however, he is learning you can run, but you can’t hide.

10 years ago, as of January 27, he peered into his crystal ball and announced that, unless drastic action transpired, our globe would be, in a word, history. So, if you are a believer, better get right with the Almighty, because drastic action has been absent.

So, while Al’s carbon footprint is about the size of Montana, he is likely sitting in the sun, which, in reality determines the heat of the planet, counting his green (isn’t that ironic) and living large. Happy New Year, Al.
