Meanwhile, on the global warming grassy knoll:

Al Gore isn’t pleased that President Obama and Mitt Romney are steering clear of climate change on the stump despite record-setting heat and extreme drought.

The former vice president expressed his displeasure via Web link, steering readers of his blog to a Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists column titled “Conspiracy of silence: The irresponsible politics of climate change.”

“In a summer dominated by heat waves and a devastating nationwide drought, it would seem that climate change would be a major issue in the US presidential campaign. However, quite the opposite is happening. Neither President Barack Obama nor the presumptive Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, has focused any attention on this critical issue,” states the Bulletin column, which Gore calls “important.”

Climate change has played little role in the campaigns, even though Obama and Romney both frequently mention energy.

Silence is good. Less climate change inducing carbon dioxide gets released into the atmosphere. Gore should give it a try.
