You know, I've said and done plenty of stupid things in my time. I'll do plenty more. But I can't believe I ever thought there was no real measurable difference between Al Gore and George W Bush, and voted for Nader instead. I mean, I'm in Texas, my vote didn't count anyway, but knowing that I ever was that stupid still grates on me.
Gore's energy speech is fantastic. What's amazing is how little it asks of most of us. Instead, this asks industry and politicians to put aside short-term plans to think long-term, and as a result all of us could benefit.
Who out there believes that the industries and politicians will listen?
Yeah, me neither. Depressing, ain't it?
