"Al Gore, who evidently never learned that the metric unit of energy is the joule, has been bleating the factoid that Anthropogenic Global Warming is the equivalent of 400,000 Hiroshima-sized atomic bombs a day of energy added to the planet. ... normal sunlight is the equivalent of 175 million 'Hiroshimas' of energy a day. Al's getting all hot and bothered over an increase of one quarter of one percent -- and that's assuming his original number for 'forcing' is correct." (02/09/13)
