As I watch Gore make himself the center of attention (and not the very real and important issue of global warming), I remembered that today is just the latest episode of Gore Egomania since his movie debut. It seems he and Mr. Rose crossed paths before.
Or, that is to say, they DIDN'T cross paths! It seems Vice President refused an interview with the tough and aggressive journalist, Mr. Rose and global warming skeptic Bjorn Lomborg. Even when Rose agreed to exclude Lomborg from the interview at the absolute demand of the Gore team, Gore abruptly cancelled an interview, fearing Rose would have been prepped to asked tough questions.
Flemming Rose writes about the near interview with Al Gore in an editorial in The Wall Street Journal:
If not, why did he chicken out on an interview?
I'm not at all prepared to agree with Bjorn Lomborg and certainly not ready to join the global warming skeptics. But, I'm disappointed to see Gore play such childish games like refusing to listen to the Republicans opening statements. If Gore wasn't so childish, he could make the Republicans look like fools. But instead, Gore looks like the fool and he is singlehandedly turning his mission into a fool's errand.
