I got quite a bit of anti-Al Gore blowback from my Editorial Notebook today, and the mail had virtually identical threads:
1. Al Gore is making money from climate change.
2. Climate change (or global warming) is a crock.
3. Al Gore has a huge carbon footprint.
4. Get over the 2000 election.
5. You’re an idiot.
OK. Let’s take these one at a time, for fun.
