Why Al Gore's Documentary Will Flop

Via AP:

Is President Bush likely to see Al Gore's documentary about global warming?

"Doubt it," Bush said coolly Monday...

"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 enviroment."

I think most people who are even moderately informed on the issue feel Bush's sentiment. They are not intimidated by Gore's scare tactics and thus will not succumb his feverish push of the global warming issue. Gore is really just a boy crying wolf about something that has been overplayed for years.

Bjorn Lomborg's book, The Skeptical Environmentalist, has done a lot of work in proving this.
