Gore says "millions" instead of "thousands"

Points out the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's associate editorial page editor. If the significance of Al Gore's recent Tonight Show "gaffe" escapes you, then welcome to the club. Now were the temperatures within the Earth's mantle actually lower than they are on its surface, then perhaps Mr. Ulrich-Franzen would be on to something.

Maybe the Journal-Sentinel's editorial board will next adjust its withering glare toward Rush Limbaugh's allegations of "substantial fraud" on the part of climate scientists, as Limbaugh's stature as a demagogue in the public imagination is roughly commensurate with that of Al Gore's, and allegations of substantial fraud are considerably more serious than an apparent slip of the tongue.

But I wouldn't hold my CO2.
