Is there a debate over whether the end is near for the theory that the End is Near?

Al Gore, arguing that there's no more debate over whether the End Is Near:

“I want to be polite to you,” Mr. Gore responded [to a Danish environmentalist who disputes his global warming alarmism]. But, no. “The scientific community has gone through this chapter and verse. We have long since passed the time when we should pretend this is a ‘on the one hand, on the other hand’ issue,” he said. “It’s not a matter of theory or conjecture, for goodness sake,” he added.

There should be no more debate over global warming. That undoubtedly means that there is no more debate about whether there is no more debate about global warming.

This is typical of the ruling Liberal Authoritarianism: liberal views simply must be accepted. We're just supposed to take our medicine and not complain. This is what James Kalb, in his book The Tyranny of Liberalism, calls "forced consent."

And by the way, where are the Darwinists to give Gore a long, boring, preachy lecture on how one should use the word "theory"?

Apparently Mr. Gore is speaking ex cathedra on this matter. And we thought he only wanted to be president...
