No WMDs? No Global Warming?

Although some people have more sinister theories, I believe that George W. felt an urgency to invade Iraq because of WMDs. The failure to find WMDs in Iraq cost the President a lot of his support and spawned all manner of conspiracy theories.

If this is right, we might be in a similar situation with global warming. Already a few scientific societies have backed off their whole hearted endorsement. Will Al Gore’s popularity and credibility evaporate if it becomes increasingly evident that the global warming excitement was really much ado about nothing? It won’t matter to Gore – he’s not running for office. Will people ever say that it was a good thing we got Bush instead of Gore because all Bush got us into was Iraq, while Gore would have destroyed the economy?
