Not To alarm anyone, but…

Democrats, I beg you to puhleeeeeeze let Al Gore be your nominee again.

Of course, if he were to win the nomination we would have to watch media types like Katie Couric gush all over him like this nonstop and we would have to hear urgent global warming warnings everyday. It seems to me a small price to pay, but decide for yourselves. Here is a bit from the Today show segment, courtesy of Newsbusters:

“There’s really not a debate. The debate’s over. The scientific community has reached as strong a consensus as you will ever find in science. There are a few oil companies and coal companies that spend millions of dollars a year to put these pseudo-scientists out there predending there is a debate. It’s exactly the same thing that the tobacco companies did after the Surgeon General warned us about the linkage between smoking and lung cancer.”

Having timidly trotted out the other side of the argument, Couric left no doubt where she stands: “Where there is disagreement among scientists is not if but when we may see drastic environmental changes across the globe. Al Gore says the clock is ticking.”

She later asked: “What do you see happening in say 15 to 20 years or even 50 years if nothing changes?”

Gore: “Well, what I think is going to happen is that we’re going to respond to it. But if we didn’t respond, what you would find is desertification of the mid-continental areas of the U.S., Europe, Asia and Africa. The melting of the polar ice cap and the beginnings of the same things in Antarctica and sea level increases of 20 feet or more worldwide. Of course Florida and Louisiana and Texas are particularly vulnerable. The San Francisco Bay area. Manila, and we have seen the impact of a couple of hundred thousand refugees from an environmental crisis [as pictures of Katrina victims flashed on the screen]. Imagine 100 million or 200 million.”

Couric: “Even Manhattan would be in deep water, right?”

Gore: “Yes, the World Trade Center memorial site would be underwater.”

Can we just go ahead and nickname him Al the Alarmist and get it over with?

UPDATE: Really, it would be so much fun to run against this guy again.

UPDATE II: Al Gore is not practicing what he is preaching. Link via Drudge.
