Al Gore loses his cool. It seems all that loot the former Vice President is collecting (word is he’s close to becoming a billionaire, thanks to a bunch of insider deals) isn’t enough to bring him happiness. He went on “a profanity-laced tirade” at a conference last month, lashing out at all of us nincompoops who are skeptical about the validity of his alarms about man-made global warming.

Almost everyone I know has written a letter to the Federal government. They’ve contacted their Representatives or Senators at some point. They’ve emailed, faxed or even called — asking, demanding or just plain begging these politicians to do something or not. I never have. Why?
