Watching the Oscars last night and seeing the love being rained down on Al Gore proved to me once and for all (for this election cycle), he is not running for president. Al Gore has realized that he has more important work to do than to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune that visits the run for the Presidency. He is a big fish in a global pond--and it seems he couldn't be happier!
Hopefully, the fish in the presidential pool will pay heed to the more important message that he is promoting, GLOBAL WARMING IS A MORAL ISSUE. It is the single most important issue of our time and it is one that we can become a stronger nation, if we choose to lead.
Iowa is in the position of leading the the next wave of the Green Revolution, with abundant natural resources, already the 3rd largest production of wind power in the nation. But we have a long way to go with respect to water quality and our continued move toward monocultural agriculture. Our future will depend on using all our resources wisely, that is what Al Gore is the spokesperson for and there is no one who can do it better.
