    It’s hard to imagine how much better off the country and the planet would have been if Gore had been president. A truly sad day for the planet when he “lost”.

    Maher does his usual good job of skewering the Big Orange Hot Dog and putting him on the grill, but there’s so much good material that he doesn’t have to work at it very hard—nor do Colbert, Jon Oliver, Trevor, et al—and it’s all just blurring together like 25 clowns all on stage at the same time—-which one do you watch?

    More stimulating was a follow-on youtube popup that appeared after Maher:

    I read the WashPost as my daily paper, and for a time I thought George Will was getting senile. He has gotten it back since Trump arose from the dark regions, as has Charles Krauthamer. Watch Trunp’s reply to Will that will “pop” after the clip and see Trump prove Will’s point.

    It’s a very great pity that the electric power sector didn’t listen to the science advisor of the U.S.A’s 36th president way back in 1968.

    But according to Forbes It’s Taken Time, But Electric Utilities Are Warming Up To Climate Change.

    “In 1968, bombs were dropping in Vietnam. But a different kind of bomb was about to dropped here at home — one that put the country’s utility industry on notice that the burning of fossil fuels would lead to climate change. Now, though, much of the industry is working to tackle those environmental challenges.

    The Energy and Policy Institute has issued a report pointing out that scientists first warned the electric power sector of the greenhouse effect at the Edison Electric Institute’s annual convention in 1968. That’s when Dr. Donald F. Hornig, a science advisor to President Lyndon B. Johnson, enlightened the gathering that rising temperatures could lead to aberrant weather patterns, melting ice caps and the erosion of crops that would lead to food shortages.

    “Such a change in the carbon dioxide level might, therefore, produce major consequences on the climate – possibly even triggering catastrophic effects such as have occurred from time to time in the past,” Hornig said, at the time.”
