Reality has a way of insisting itself on you
When asked if he's likely to see Al Gore's movie, "An Inconvenient Truth," Bush said, "Doubt it." He's also unlikely to change his mind about global warming:
"New technologies will change how we live and how we drive our cars, which all will have the beneficial effect of improving the environment. And in my judgment we need to set aside whether or not greenhouse gases have been caused by mankind or because of natural effects and focus on the technologies that will enable us to live better lives and at the same time protect the enviroment."
That's right, set aside the facts so we can concentrate on what's really important: maintaining the American Way of Life.
At least one politician gets it: Speaking at the Cannes Film Festival about global warming, Gore said, "I even believe there is a chance that within the next two years, even Bush and Dick Cheney will be forced to change their position on this crisis. One can only attempt to create one's own reality for so long. Reality proper has a way of insisting itself upon you."
Is it the day after tomorrow yet?
