Gore: Making it personal

Gore: Making it personal“. Anthony Watts is on Al Gore’s mailing list and he doesn’t like it one bit (although he may consider himself a cunning spy). Repower America is encouraging Americans to write to their Senator in support of a clean energy bill. And by write, they mean handwritten. With a pen! How can they harness the idle rage of the blogosphere that way?

If you want to look ‘big’ you’ve got to use Anthony’s method of encouraging readers to flood electronic in-boxes with easy copy-and-pasted spin, probably under as many names as possible. Kind of like the swarms of incoherent comments on media climate news web pages, or fake Freedom of Information requests Steven McIntyre orchestrated.

Although in this particular case, Anthony says “I’m only pointing out an opportunity, don’t feel obligated.
