Gore's next greatest invention? Flame retardant babies!

“The planet has a fever. If your baby has a fever, you go to the doctor. If the doctor says you need to intervene here, you don’t say, well I read a science fiction novel that tells me it’s not a problem. If the crib’s on fire, you don’t speculate that the baby is flame-retardant. You take action. The planet has a fever.”
For some reason, I do expect that, in most pediatricians' careers, they'll have at least one parent argue with them over something they read in a science fiction novel. Maybe once every few months might be a better estimate, depending on the population.
