Fair Enough

An e-mail admonishing the recklessness of my previous post:

As you seem not to understand any of the basic science, I think it

might be in your best interests to stay out of the global warming

debate. Just saying “I know it’s not scientific” does not justify

spreading this kind of misinformation. A more valuable post would have

been, “People are asking me about the snow with relation to global

warming. Of course it can snow in April and global warning can still

be a real phenomenon.” Then you could offer some evidence that shows

that global warming is not a danger to us.

In other words, I think it isn’t Al Gore who should work harder, but you.

Some of that evidence offering is a bit of the goal in the newbie blog Planet Gore, btw.
