    "“Al Gore’s just an opportunist”

    Wow! I had no idea Dyson said such a thing. He is correct, Gore is an opportunist, little more. I have a lot of respect for Gore for this reason alone really. He has made himself one of the wealthiest men in the world by being a true entrepreneurial opportunist, one of the great salesmen in America, I admire him greatly for this ability. I wish he would teach his skills and methodology to others. I dislike very much his climate alarmist path however.

    Dyson is one of the true unsung American geniuses of the last 50 years. Thank you for that quote OI will pin it to my wall.
