An inconvenient truth we should have seen coming.

I voted for Al Gore back in 2000 mostly on the issue of the environment and our energy policy. In those days gasoline was about a buck a gallon. I still foresaw this mess that we are facing today. I could smell the energy crisis looming and I anticipated this global warming bullshit to get worse. But, I'm not a scientist, I'm not a politician, fuck it, I was barely out of high school when I casted my vote in that precinct in Lil' Havana. I was just your average teenager at the time but I still felt Al Gore was the best option we had to prevent the worse from happening.

To this day I'm still the same tree-hugger I was in 2000 but now Bush's horrible administration turned me into a champion of civil liberties, probably just as much as I am of the environment. Everyday I see how better off we would have been with Gore in office. He may not be a saint, but dammit, we all know that millions of lives would not have been lost or ruined had Bush not been appointed president 6 years ago.

The good news is that Al Gore's new flik, An Inconvenient Truth, got a better review than the X-Men III. I hope people flood the movie theaters for it like Katrina flooded Bush's credibility and wake the fuck up to this environmental crisis we're experiencing. We need a tree-hugger in the white house ASAP!

Yeah, I've left my arm prints around a few trees myself. Read Al's book too. I'm married to a marine biologist so we're big into the environment.

I wish Al's movie was already on dvd so I could see it. I know it won't be shown anywhere here.
