So global warming is causing the cycle to shorten? Mr. "I invented the internet" didn't warn us of that.


lol, Mr I invented the internet. Amusing. Of course he didn't "warn" anyone. The political podium he stands upon will be teetering on its pivital axis for many months to come, with this information.

Paul Ding:

"Mr. 'I invented the internet'", as you refer to him, never said that. Declan McCullagh made that up by deliberately misquoting Mr. Gore, who actually said

"During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our country's economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system."

Mr. McCullagh freely admitted making it up, then House Majority Leader Dick Armey took it from there in order to make Gore look bad. The links to the citations are all here, see for yourself:

Don't fall for politically motivated slurs and urban legends. If you want to disagree with Mr. Gore, by all means do so, but base it on what he actually said, not on deliberate lies.
