Did I read this right? Al Gore was honored for his work concerning "global warming" ??? Since when does being a politician make you an expert in atmospheric chemistry????
The University of Minnesota made an incredibly smart move when they hired Tubby Smith as basketball coach. But before that happened, they considered giving Al Gore a doctorate for climatology??? ARE YOU KIDDING ME????
I don't go around telling lawyers how to do their jobs. Bankers, chefs... the list goes on and on. But yet, a politician can instantly be an expert in climatology? Education? Medicine? Give me a break.
Recently, a forum was held in Indianapolis about high school education. The panel was made up of doctors, politicians, business leaders... and one teacher. Now I agree that community input and involvement is important, but wouldn't it make sense to ask the people who have been professionally trained and have experience in that field what works and what doesn't?????
