How is it that Al Gore continues to succeed despite his ignorance? The Nobel Laureate recently told Conan O'Brien that the Earth's interior is "extremely hot, several million degrees." That's more along the lines of the sun. The Earth's core is a few thousand degrees...just slightly off.
If the temperature anywhere inside the earth was "several million degrees," we'd be a star.
The demigod of man-made global warming continues to demonstrate that the Church of Global Warming is based on good intentions, not of facts. Facts just get in the way. So what if he's off by a million, his good intent was there -- man needs to harvest geothermal energy. (I wonder if he has a business investment in one or more geothermal enterprises? Duh.)
Most leaders of major causes, from cults and gangs to CEOs, have a basic understanding of the facts associated with their causes or businesses. They know when they don't and know when to keep quite. Algore has none of these qualities yet dorks continue to follow his rantings.
