    Is he still flogging that "Man Made Global Warming" thing - oh er sorry, "Global Warming", oops sorry again, "Climate Change" oh rats! It got colder this decade.

    Er OK that was it - the world temperature curve is following the CO2 curve, oh crap! It is the other way round - erm ok, but we can invent a stink load of money from Carbon Trading.
    Oh and by the way, all you poorer nations are not allowed to do what we richer nations did to become rich.


    But at least he pushed hard for the funding of the internet at a time when nobody else understood.

    Rant over.

    Well this should be very interesting. I hope he mentions (with graphs and data at hand) the impact Dominican emissions are having on the world in relation to what most other countries are doing. Al Gore, if you read this, please list them from most polluter to the least. It's important for people to know where they stand in the greater scheme of things, more so when its a US$500 dinner in a tiny developing Caribbean country. Thanks in advance.
