If You Cannot Help, Please Stop Harming
Al Gore probably thinks he should have been President, and while he did emerge post 2000 as an ardent environmentalist, for the most part he just took his ball and went home.
Now Mr. Gore is doing irrepreable harm to his cause and the cause of environmentalists everywhere. In what can only be described as a desperate attempt to be relevant, NY Times
"President-elect Donald J. Trump, who has called climate change a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese, met on Monday with the climate-activist extraordinaire Al Gore, offering environmental activists a glimmer of hope that the Trump administration’s policies will moderate from his campaign pledges to scrap all efforts to stem the warming of the planet."
But here is reality
"But even as the president-elect was sitting down with the former vice president, his transition team continued to court ardent opponents of climate control policies to fill key posts in the government. Many transition officials question or deny the established science of human-caused climate change and have worked aggressively to undo President Obama’s climate change policies."
So no Al, you are harming everyone by giving a hint of respectability to a person dedicated to destroying you, your credibility and your cause. So go, please just go.
