I doubt it because the guy has already made up his mind on global warming. The AP yesterday said Bush “doubts” he will watch Gore’s movie. That’s what he said on Monday and he probably won’t change his mind. Bush is really pretty busy still trying to figure out how he should respond to Hurricane Katrina. And after that there’s what to eat for lunch.
Today Gore said Bush should watch the documentary he has produced. The documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, opens Wednesday at selected theaters across the country. It opens in Seattle, Washington on June 2nd at the Guild and Pacific Palace Theaters. (Click here for other locations and times.)
Gore offered to personally come to the White House and view the movie with Bush. Maybe even shake hands and ask how the brush clearing is going on Bush’s ranch. Maybe talk a little baseball.
But unfortunately Gore has already blown any chance of that by saying
“The entire global scientific community has a consensus on the question that human beings are responsible for global warming and he has today again expressed personal doubt that is true”
Oops Al, you don’t question the President or say things that are not nice.
No, I don’t think Bush will accept Gore’s invitation. Besides it’s against protocol. The President runs this old country and he invites you to the White House. How gauche of Gore. You don’t invite yourself to some else’s house. Bush might have to worry about the guy not leaving because Al is certain to start talking about global warming at some point. And he might want to keep on talking. Too much talking – that would cause a ruckus, of course.
No, Bush has it all figured out.
“New technologies will change how we live and how we drive our cars, which all will have the beneficial effect of improving the environment,” Bush said. “And in my judgment we need to set aside whether or not greenhouse gases have been caused by mankind or because of natural effects and focus on the technologies that will enable us to live better lives and at the same time protect the environment.”
Yes Pollyanna George has it all figured out. He saves time for important things by not reading or watching movies coming from dubious characters like Gore.
Gore said the causes of global warming should not be ignored.
“Why should we set aside the global scientific consensus,” Gore said, his voice rising with emotion. “Is it because Exxon Mobil wants us to set it aside? Why should we set aside the conclusion of scientists in the United States, including the National Academy of Sciences, and around the world including the 11 most important national academies of science on the globe and substitute for their view the view of Exxon Mobil. Why?”
