The media are finally catching up with Al Gore. Criticism of his anti-global-warming franchise and his personal environmental record has gone beyond ankle-biting bloggers. It's now coming from the New York Times and the Nashville Tennessean, his hometown paper that put his birth, as a senator's son, on its front page back in 1948, and where a young Al Gore Jr. worked for five years as a journalist.
Mr. Gore has called the campaign
to combat global warming a "moral imperative." But Mr. Gore faces
another imperative: to square his sales pitches with the facts and his
personal lifestyle to more align with what he advocates that others
practice. "Are you ready to change the way you live?" asks Mr. Gore's
film. It's time people ask Mr. Gore "Are you ready to change the way you live, as well as the way you lecture the rest of us?"
