Al Gore says Obama must veto 'atrocity' of Keystone XL tar sands pipeline
"I certainly hope that he will veto that now that the Canadians have publicly concluded that it is not safe to take a pipeline across British Columbia to ports on the Pacific," he told the Guardian. "I really can't imagine that our country would say: 'Oh well. Take it right over parts of the Ogallala aquifer', our largest and most important source of ground water in the US. It's really a losing proposition."

somehow we must be able, within the IPCC mathematics, to jump 3C in the next 87 years. As well, the melting of continental glaciers must be able to increase within the IPCC math to crank sea level rise to about 20 mm/yr towards the end of the century.

Good comment: "I'll believe it's a crisis when...." Three more observations about climate change activists that should be noted.

1) Al Gore and Bill McKibben moan about hurricanes and other extreme weather events. However, they never do much of anything when a natural disaster develops. The real heroes and heroines work for agencies like the Red Cross and the Salvation Army. (When the flood waters start to rise, don't call Al Gore or Bill McKibben.)

2) Al Gore and Bill McKibben can talk for five hours about energy use without acknowledging that people need to use energy in order to survive with some measure of dignity. That's amazing.

For climate change activists, energy use is just a dirty habit, like chewing tobacco.

3) The Gore and McKibben formula is simple: Complain about the weather. Blame all of the weather problems on the energy companies. Tell people that they'll feel better after the Keystone XL pipeline is stopped.
