Gore's "The Assault on Reason"

Al Gore's book "The Assault On Reason" really struck both conservatives and liberals alike (though conservatives were more likely to find it "smug", and liberals "smart"). In an attempt to prepare for a book club discussion, I'm collecting notes about the book here. I intend to annotate each quotation with comments from past book club discussions.
