Gore to spend $500 million on debate that's 'over'

Planet Gore at NRO reports that the world's leading advertising agencies are battling to win the account for eco-alarmists Alliance for Climate Protection, an organization formed last year by Al Gore and friends. ACP envisages spending over $100 million a year for the next three to five years.

These sums make the 'well-funded denial industry' that Gore regularly complains about look like a kitchen table operation – and that's before you start counting the hundreds of millions doled out every year by environmental charities, governments and the UN. And you have to wonder why Gore needs to spend $500 million to get his message across when the science is supposedly settled, and the debate 'over'.

Then again, it's not been a great couple of weeks for the alarmists.
