Pixar Versus Al Gore?

Goldberg, Goldberg, Goldberg.

Jonah, Jonah, Jonah.

How could he even think of such a thing? That's cruelty to weirdos, half-wits, and charlatans.

Then again, I'm kind of a Pixar guy... and when they come up with a story they really sell it!
There's no need to revisit the arguments about the science of global warming. Let's give Gore et al. the benefit of the doubt and stipulate that they're right about their worst-case scenario hysteria. Let's also give them the benefit of the doubt that they actually believe global warming is the moral equivalent of the Holocaust.

And if we do this, we must ask: Why on Earth aren't these people denouncing the movie "Cars"? Laurie David, a Hollywood environmental activist and producer of "An Inconvenient Truth," said that after she saw John Kerry lose to George W. Bush in the 2004 presidential election, "I made a pledge to myself. I'd do everything I could in the next year to permeate pop culture on this issue. My whole thing is to get it off the science page and onto the front page. Get it off PBS and onto TBS."

Jonah's recent column, as you can see, wonders if Gore's assertion (that today's global warming issue is like yesterday's Haulocaust) is even sincere. Is he taking his own advice seriously enough?

Probably not, and with good reason. America (and the world) probably loves Pixar much more than Al Gore.

Who can blame them?
