Now that's what you call ironic

Eco-catastrophe echoes - The Washington Times, America's Newspaper Al Gore was addressing the Sierra Club, saying the government had to be held accountable for the collapse of the levees in New Orleans.
The very day he spoke a congressional task force reported the levees that failed in New Orleans would have been raised higher and strengthened in 1996 by the Army Corps of Engineers were it not for a lawsuit filed by environmentalists, led by who else but the Sierra Club.
Of course the Sierra Club wasn't alone in its opposition to building defenses for New Orleans. I wonder how they will react when the next set of barrier proposals are made. (Can you say litigation?) [h/t NRA-ILA]
