Nobody has done more to educate the masses about climate change than Al Gore. He's written a best-selling book and inspired an Oscar-winning documentary. He's been awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for all his efforts. This week Gore rolled out a new campaign to raise awareness of climate change. As Bryan Walsh observes,

Gore's argument"”and his point of attack"”hasn't really changed. He's still set on disseminating the science...

Fanboy David Roberts at Grist sounds like he wants to chest bump the former Vice President:

As always, I find myself admiring Gore's sheer doggedness. He's going to explain this f*cking problem to you people as long as he has to for you to hear it. It hasn't worked yet, but neither has anything else, and in the long run, my bet is always on persistence over cleverness.

Umm, nothing else but Gore's approach has actually been tried. So how long do you think Roberts will have to wait for Gore's persistence to win out?
