What a snarky, disrespectful and downright condescending article. Also apparently NOT researched. Altitude issues are very real. I experienced them myself the first time I went to Louisiana and had a minor panic attack because I felt like I was suffocating. It was like trying to breath a creamy soup, the air was so thick. This "writer" apparently has anger issues and we get it: you don't like Al Gore. Sheesh!
