From this Raw Story story:
Because President Bush and (technically) President Gore do not see the world the same way. To Bush, there will always be snow at Christmas and there will always be leaf-peeping in October, on those long, lonely roads up to the compound in Kennebunkport. But to Gore, the reality is that someday we might have to explain to our children and grandchildren what winter was, if, in fact, we are able to survive the uprooting.Now, it's sweet that Hannah Selinger recognizes that "Curbing global warming means an end to corporate pandering and it also means a drastic reappraisal of How We Live." But this is where the frontier lies for Al Gore and his fans. Neither Bush nor Gore nor any of the Republicrats has the political will to stop pandering to corporations or to do anything of significance about global warming.
If we are to avoid repeating their example, we will have to go back to the idea of a "movement," and to Gramsci's idea of a "war of position," in order to get some action.
