According to The Wall Street Journal this morning, Al Gore and his take on global warming have become all the rage in…Belgium. It’s seems the Belgian Prime Minister was so taken with Mr. Gore’s recent visit promoting An Inconvenient Truth that he invoked the former VP’s name when introducing a package of new “enviromentally friendly” taxes. This package has been dubbed “the Gore tax,” which I can only assume pleases him mightily.
