Gargaro's World: Fair and Balanced

October 23, 2007

Since my last blog entry had a little fun at the expense of President Bush - and since my No. 1 fan Frank enjoyed it so much - I thought I would bring you this humorous fake news release about Al Gore and the global warming crisis.

Al Gore's Solution To Global Warming

(Washington) - Former Vice President, Oscar winner and global warming activist, Al Gore, today announced he has found the solution to the global warming crisis.

He claims that the solution to global warming is global air conditioning.

Mr. Gore urged all Americans to turn on their air conditioning, turn it up to its highest setting, open all doors and windows, and cool off the planet.

Gore states, "It's a matter of science. I've paid 3 prominent scientists and the air conditioning industry lobbyists to agree that global warming can be reversed, in as little as 30 days, by global air conditioning.

When asked about the increased energy costs for low income consumers who would be running their air conditioners for 30 days Mr. Gore replied, "I don't know anything about low income people. You'll have to ask John Edwards about that, he speaks for the poor."

Al Gore will be embarking on a 10-city speaking tour promoting global air conditioning. At $150,000 a speech, he will net himself a "cool" $1.5 million.
