Al Gore Praises Mitt Romney For Accepting Global Warming

Here's an inconvenient truth for Mitt Romney — Al Gore is praising him for accepting the scientific evidence pointing to global warming and the human role in it.

Good for Mitt Romney — though we've long passed the point where weak lip-service is enough on the Climate Crisis.

OK, it was faint praise from the 2000 Democratic presidential nominee. But even that could get Romney, the frontrunner for the 2012 Republican White House nomination in trouble with many conservatives who reject the science that argues for anthropogenic global warming.
