When you are selling a lemon

One must act fast. (if you are the type to sell your problems to someone else.) And the street corner hawkers get desperate to sell their goods when they see the game is about up.

Gore urges fast action on global warming - Yahoo! News
He said he foresees a revolution in small-scale electricity producers for replacing coal, likening the development to what the Internet has done for the exchange of information. He also advocated tougher fuel-economy standards for cars and trucks.
"There is a sense of hope in this country that this United States Congress will rise to the occasion and present meaningful solutions to this crisis," he said. "Our world faces a true planetary emergency. I know the phrase sounds shrill, and I know it's a challenge to the moral imagination."
Still gnawing on that old bone I see.
Gore said the climate issue should not be a partisan or political issue. He said he saw a limited role for nuclear power, which the Bush administration has promoted, because the plants are expensive to build and "only come in one size: extra large."
How can it not be when he is involved? Partisan politics and big money is all that pushes these regulatory fear-mongers.
He rejected the contention by opponents of quick action on global warming that the United States should only impose mandatory controls on greenhouse gases if China, India and other rapidly developing nations agree to do the same.

"The best way and the only way to get China and India on board is for the U.S. to demonstrate real leadership," Gore said. "As the world's largest economy and the greatest superpower, we are uniquely situated to tackle a problem of this magnitude," he said.
Oh yeah. And I have a bridge to nowhere I can sell you also. That "leadership" has led China to wonderful progress on Human Rights issues. They will be on board, just waiting to buy the remainder of the scrap of our industry. Just as they have done with all the steel manufacturing.
Gore favors a "cap-and-trade" program for the U.S. economy, not just specific sectors such as electricity or manufacturing, which would set an overall limit on warming emissions but allow industry to meet the target by trading pollution allowances.
Speaking of which, I think Gore has reached his overall warming emissions. Time for him to stop riding Oscars fake coattail.
