As many a Palestinian has discovered...

You fire a bullet straight up into the air... at some point the physical laws of the universe step in and take over...

If Al Gore is a decent man, thirty years from now, having finally admitted he was wrong about global warming, he will endow a new prize, to be presented annually to a man or woman who tried to undo the incalculable damage done by An Inconvenient Truth.
Surely we must be near the apogee of this politically correct environmental jiggery-pokery.
The average US household consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours of electricity. In 2006, the Gores wolfed down nearly 221,000 kWh.

RELATED: Show me the science
In the wake of a British court ruling that the "documentary" contains material errors of fact, a "call to return Inconvenient Truth Oscar".
Lies, lies and more lies.

LAST WORD: If I had to choose between...

Doris Lessing and dynamite... it wouldn't take 2 seconds
She left home when she was 15, and in 1937 she moved to Salisbury (now Harare) in Southern Rhodesia, where she took jobs as a telephone operator and nursemaid. She married at 19 and had two children.

A few years later, feeling imprisoned, she abandoned her family.

She later married Gottfried Lessing, a central member of the left-wing Left Book Club, and they had a son. When she divorced Mr. Lessing, she and her young son, Peter, moved to London, where she began her literary career.
Let's just rename this the "Pinko Prize" and move on.
