And this idiot got a Nobel too

The Inventor of the Internet, Al Gore, proves (again) why we should really just guffaw hysterically at him:

CONAN O'BRIEN, HOST: Now, what about ... you talk in the book about geothermal energy...

AL GORE, NOBEL LAUREATE: Yeah, yeah.

O'BRIEN: ...and that is, as I understand it, using the heat that's generated from the core of the earth ...

GORE: Yeah.

O'BRIEN: ...to create energy, and it sounds to me like an evil plan by Lex Luthor to defeat Superman. Can you, can you tell me, is this a viable solution, geothermal energy?

GORE: It definitely is, and it's a relatively new one. People think about geothermal energy - when they think about it at all - in terms of the hot water bubbling up in some places, but two kilometers or so down in most places there are these incredibly hot rocks, 'cause the interior of the earth is extremely hot, several million degrees, and the crust of the earth is hot ...

This is the guy who's leading the way with scientific "evidence" on global warming?? The actual temperature at the center of our planet is about 4,000 degrees Celsius. If the temperature at the center of the Earth was "several million degrees," our planet would be a companion to our sun; in other words, our solar system would be a binary system.
