Pure Fe 26+y

The use of iron is prehistoric. It’s even mentioned in Genesis, Tubal-Cain, seven generations from Adam, was an instructor in every artifice of brass and iron.  It’s an element abundant in the universe.

 In the universe of words surrounding us, a derivation, a literary isotope, if you will, called pure irony, is also abundant and echoes the prehistoric, as Al Gore once again attempts to talk sense to the body politic about energy.  His speech, entitled “A Generational Challenge to Repower America (as prepared)”  is worth a read, as well as the 538 some odd news articles which attempt to summarize it (found online at most news services). Most people might not appreciate Gore, whom I consider one of the most forward thinking people on the planet today. Any past gaffs notwithstanding, his stand on energy is both progressive and innovative. Read for yourself.

He states in part:

“Yet when we look at all … challenges at the same time, we can see the common thread running through them, deeply ironic in its simplicity: our dangerous over-reliance on carbon-based fuels is at the core of all three of these challenges – the economic, environmental and national security crises.”

Is he wrong? You decide.
