Well Mr. Green isn't practicing what he's preaching - AGAIN!

I wonder how many Carbon Credits he'll have to buy to offset that footprint?


See the video tape on Sunday night.

You can bet it'll never be aired on CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC, BBC, etc.

Yeah, and the PETA whackos are now harassing him for eating hamburgers. The methane gas from cow farts is supposedly the single largest contributor to greenhouse gases - even greater than that of internal combustion engines.

I gues the old adage about people living in stone houses not throwing stones is appropo here.

Now worries though, Algore will just use some of the millions he has made being a global warming whore, and the earnings from his family's massive Occidental Petroleum holdings to buy more bogus Carbon Offsets.

What a crock of :smt093

Actually, some money from such carbon offset is used to burn methane from landfills to CO2 and use the heat produced either in a co-generation plant or to produce electricity.

Believing or not in global warming is not even the issue anymore. Your way of living will be jeopardized by the cost of energy if dependant on oil. Better use any incentives available to promote alternative sources of energy. Al Gore is making difference more toward than against this objective to me.

How can you KoolAid drinkers keep protecting Algore? He is a super rich guy who pays off people to be "carbon neutral." Why don't you ask why he doesn't sell his hugh mansion in Tennessee and buy a 1,500 sq.ft. house with all the modern efficiencies? The low power company there reports his house (just him & Tipper) uses more than 100x the amount of electricity as their average residential customer.

Of course, if you overlook that, you'll also overlook that the Gore family's fortune was and still is based on holdings in Occidental Oil.

Don't let any of that bother you, though. :roll:
