Al Gore has another climate-related project, the Climate Reality
Dump Drop. Taking a page out of the denialist hand book, he is offering up a gamified site with ready-made responses to recent articles. The obvious question that springs to mind is what good will this bring? If putting out prepared comments is somehow beneficial (I can’t see how.), why not just automate it with bots? What good does it do to arm people with a lack of knowledge? Who will you convince when you can’t support the argument you put forth?
From where I stand, shouting down detractors is what you do when the facts DON’T support your argument.
Am I somehow looking at this wrong, or is Al Gore playing into the hands of his detractors? Take a look at the site’s video and decide for yourself.
