    A little tittilation over at The Big O:


  2. clip of Al Gore on SNL.  A person with a strong  ego has no problem making fun of himself.

    The pootie made me laugh; the Polar Bear made me want to hug it (potentially dangerous); the pony made me say, “awh”; and the snake…um…Sorry, I don’t think the snake is saying, “Please”.

    He’s not running AND you stepped on my latest diatribe about the Left blogs. How dare you!

    You think you run this blog or something?
    (Leaves in a huff.)

    I’d rather a President Clark with Gore an international player for the planet.  Let’s not be egocentric–the US is no longer the whole equation, Gore is needed in China, India, and Brazil just as much as he is here.

  3. moment I feel like reaching through my screen and smackin’ ya upside the head.

    Hero?  You want some hero to come riding into town on a white stallion in order to set things right… like out of a western, or something?

    See this kid?

    Shane saved his family from the bad guys.

    But he got lucky.

    I just don’t see it happening.

    My people have been waitin’ around for the Messiah for 5,000 years, or whatever, and he ain’t shown up, yet.

    (which only I can interpret, so you’ll need to trust me), tell me that he WILL run, They did this last November and I won a bottle of vintage champagne from a Republican on a brit blog. Republican and the widow Cliquot have both gone to ground – have they no honour?

    That Pony is why I simply must have a large lottery win.

  4. since I finished Assault on Reason.  I bought it the day it came out and have been saving my money for months 🙂  I did spend a little to get the ad in the NY Times, but he can have the rest later.

    I love this pic btw…

    No!  I’m NOT too proud to beg….I’ve been known to do it before.

    I’ve been thinking lately (yeah, I know, that’s dangerous!) about his 2000 run and election…He went through hell and back in a hand basket.  He used his anger and frustration for absolutely wonderful and positive goals and look where he is now…I have so much respect for him and his family’s support of his goals.
    However, how do you ask somebody to go through that again?  Do we really think that the right won’t absolutely pull out all of the big guns to go after him?  Of course they will.  He has the power to fight back this time, I think that’s the big difference.
    But I can’t help but feel that perhaps we let him down in 2000 by not standing behind him more when the recounts were stopped, when the Supreme Court made it’s decision.  Sure there were some protests, but, really there should have been much, much more.  We “should have” filled the streets of every major city, but we didn’t.  Looking back on it now, we didn’t do enough, had we’ve known the consequences…we could say the same thing for our actions now.  We’re not doing enough to stop our country from being completely destroyed.
    All in all, I want Gore to run with every bone in my body, I want to work for his campaign should he run.  I’m sure we will have his back this time!  The next few months should prove to be very interesting, indeed!

    the squirrels who I feed which cause the power outages,  and the finches with the kids chasing after the adults so they can be fed and, and …

  5. Al Gore has evolved from the traverses of his experiences.  He has the wisdom, knowledge and leadership that we need.  He is the only one that would lead this country in combatting global warming, thereby, setting us in the right direction to begin with.

    I do fear, however, corporate backlash and the harm it could cause. 

    • oculus on October 11, 2007 at 18:54

    I must admit the photos are cute, esp. that horse.

    But, here’s my question:  we know Al Gore does not currently hold any public office and has not indicated he will be a candidate for President in the ’08 election; however, what I’d like to know is, has he made any statements on his position on getting out of Iraq now?  As important as the environmental issues are, to me, getting out of Iraq now is more important.  And of course, such an intelligent man could actually do two things at once.

    Polar bear die-off unlikely: GN official
    Wildlife research director dismisses dire forecast by U.S. agency


    Fears that two-thirds of the world’s polar bears will die off in the next 50 years are overblown, says Mitchell Taylor, the Government of Nunavut’s director of wildlife research.

    I think it’s naive and presumptuous,” Taylor said of the report, released by U.S. Geological Survey on Friday, which warns that many of the world’s polar bears will die as sea ice vanishes due to a warming climate.

    “As the sea ice goes, so go the polar bears,” said Steve Amstrup, who led the study.

    But Taylor says that’s not the case. He points to Davis Strait, one of the southern-most roaming grounds of polar bears. According to the USGS, Davis Strait ought to be among the first places where polar bears will starve due to shrinking seasonal sea ice, which scientists say will deprive the bears of a vital platform to hunt seals.

    Yet “Davis Strait is crawling with polar bears,” Taylor said. “It’s not safe to camp there. They’re fat. The mothers have cubs. The cubs are in good shape.

    Other than Davis Strait, which is hunted by Inuit from Pangnirtung, Iqaluit and Kimmirut, the USGS also predicts polar bears will perish in Baffin Bay, Foxe Basin, and South and West Baffin.

    In fact, the USGS predicts the only polar bears to survive by the end of the century will be those found in Canada’s Arctic archipelago, and on the west coast of Greenland. Those in Alaska and Russia, and in much of Nunavut and all of Nunavik, will have perished.

    But Taylor says the report is needlessly pessimistic. While he agrees that seals are essential food for bears as they fatten up during the spring and summer months – seal blubber makes up half of the bears’ energy intake – he also suspects bears will be able to supplement their diet with other foods, such as walrus.

    During the summer months polar bears may also forage on berries, sedges and other plants, as well as bird eggs, to supplement their diet.

    And Taylor also points out female polar bears go nine months without eating at all during pregnancy.

    Besides, Taylor says he and numerous Inuit hunters have seen bears catch seal without the presence of sea ice. Bears sometimes find a place on shore to pounce on seals swimming by. Or they may catch seals caught in tidal pools, or sneak up on their prey at night.

    Taylor even suggests polar bears may float still on the water to fool seals into thinking they are hunks of sea ice.

    The Government of Nunavut is conducting a study of the Davis Strait bear population. Results of the study won’t be released until 2008, but Taylor says it appears there are some 3,000 bears in an area – a big jump from the current estimate of about 850 bears.

    That’s not theory. That’s not based on a model. That’s observation of reality,” he says.

    And despite the fact that some of the most dramatic changes to sea ice is seen in seasonal ice areas such as Davis Strait, seven or eight of the bears measured and weighed for the study this summer are among the biggest on record, Taylor said.

    Yet anecdotes abound of skinny polar bears wandering from their traditional hunting grounds in search of food – such as an email circulated recently with a photo of a gaunt bear with skin hanging off its bones, spotted 160 kilometres inland from Ungava Bay.

    Taylor bristles at that photo’s mention. He says the bear is clearly an elderly male in its late 20s, rather than a young female, as it has been otherwise identified.

    “It probably wandered out there to end its life in peace,” he said. “That’s nature. It’s not climate change.”

    He also questions the claim that the papers used to support the position of the USGS on polar bears have been peer reviewed. “The first time I saw them was when I downloaded them today,” he said.

    Taylor characterizes much of the public discussion over, as one headline has called it, “the appalling fate of the polar bear,” as “hysteria.”

    Taylor admits he does not see eye to eye with many other polar bear biologist, many of whom have expressed concern over whether polar bears will survive in a warmer climate.

    Unlike all the others, I live in the north. My friends and neighbours are Nunavummiut,” he said. “I’m talking to people about polar bears all the time.”

    The Geological Survey produced its report to assist the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in its decision on whether to list polar bears as an endangered species. If polar bears make the endangered list, it would effectively end the U.S. sports hunt, which brings about $2 million to Nunavut communities each year.

    The Fish and Wildlife Service has until January 2009 to make its decision.

    Two-thirds of the world’s polar bears live in Canada.

    I blogged about a UK court judgement that Al Gore’s Inconvient Truth is that, well, he wasn’t being truthful over at SwordsCrossed:

    Good News: Al Gore was wrong!

    The High Court has determined that nine of the most fundamental claims in Gore’s movie were inaccurate.
