I just sent a message to Al Gore, who’s been attacked in his efforts to raise awareness on the issue of global warming. So far, right-wing talkers have compared him to Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propagandist, and one even likened Gore’s pursuit of solutions to global warming to Adolf Hitler’s pursuit of genocide.
Tell him thank you and that he should keep fighting here:
I wanted to take a minute to tell you thank you, and to keep fighting.
Thank you for demonstrating the courage and moral clarity that you have in the face of the vicious right-wing attacks. Global warming is not and should not be a political issue, and I stand behind you against those who use rhetoric to try to hide the truth.
My personal comments added:
As long as there are people like you working for the things that really matter, we still have a chance. Thank you for doing all in your power to awaken us to our own self-destructiveness and to set in motion the forces needed to address our global crisis. On a more personal note, to see you follow your heart and your calling makes me very proud and happy. It gives me hope – you’re my hero.
