THE GORE OF IT ALL
Posted by politicalpartypooper on April 4, 2009
Al Gore wants you to clean up your act!
Environmentalists and Liberals want you to drive smaller vehicles or hybrids, turn off your lights, and do everything you can to save the earth.
That’s swell. I’m all for clean living. What I am not for is hypocrisy in this issue. We are being led, like sheep, to the wolves den, and the wolves are trying to teach us to be sensible with our energy consumption. But the wolves live in mansions, and suck up to twenty or thirty times more power than the average person. That’s okay. They buy carbon offsets.
I touched on this a few days ago. A carbon offset is environmentally neutral; it is merely a way to “offset” the extra energy one uses, while allowing them to be swinish in their ivory towers. These carbon offsets aren’t making Al Gore more environmentally friendly than you or I. On the contrary, they are allowing him to be an energy glutton.
If you really want to make an impact, Al, turn off your air conditioning this summer. Yes, Al, even when it’s hot. If you do, I will.
Somehow, I don’t think Al Gore will be turning that AC off any time soon, because life is just too hard without wasting energy. Right, Al?
