From the Florida Times-Union, back in 1998:
“Not long ago, Gore called The Washington Post’s executive editor to tip him off on an “error” in the paper.
”I decided I just had to call because you’ve printed a picture of the Earth upside down” on the front page of the paper, Gore said. (…)
“Last September, Gore hiked reporters up to a glacier in Montana to point out that it was melting. Imagine: ice melting in the summertime. Although this photo op was supposed to demonstrate ‘global warming,’ summer daytime temperatures in western Montana haven’t risen in 100 years.
“Gore is called ‘brainy’ by the liberal media, but has been labeled ‘Capt. Planet’ by some critics of his extreme environmental views.
“Seems to fit.”
