Something Else Al Gore Didn’t Invent

7:15 AM EST on February 15, 2008

Last night, on a romantic Valentine's Day spent on the couch, I was flipping through the millions of channels on digital cable and, of course, nothing was on.  Lacking other options, I stopped briefly on a channel that was playing An Inconvenient Truth, and there was Al Gore telling us to stock up on bottled water and hide in a cave (preferrably well above current sea level).

Love him or hate him, there is no denying that Al Gore is the current standard bearer for the environmentalist movement.  So, imagine my surprise when I found this YouTube video below where this left coast, elitist was pitching his tree hugging wares to Oklahoma back when Senator Gore's only concern was that my impressionable ears not be able to hear Eazy E badmouth law enforcement.

The hippies of the Reagan era sure looked different.

(edit:  For some reason, the YouTube link is not working, but you should be able to view the video if you click here.)
