When my colleague Bill Kenealy wrote recently about the same Al Gore IASA keynote on which I opined last time, I was alerted that his take might be different than mine—and that I might want to address the differences for your entertainment and enlightenment. 

First, let me surprise you by saying that I have very few differences with Bill’s rather thorough take on what Gore said.  Really, it’s the first sentence of his blog that raises my contrarian hackles.  To wit: “Even his harshest critics will acknowledge that Al Gore has considerable insight and wide interests.”  I can’t say for sure that I am among Gore’s most scathing critics, but I’ll admit to being in the general neighborhood.  That being said, I have trouble acknowledging what Bill calls Gore’s  “insight,” because I don’t consider the reckless use of statistics as insight.  In fact, it is rather the opposite.
