Hypocrite Al does it again

The National Post of Canada is reporting that ol' Algore (he of the 20x the average home electricity bill, royalty-receiver from a toxic zinc mine and sender by Mercedes SUV of his and Tipper's luggage to his Nobel Prize ceremony, while they pretended to schlep to the hall solely by train, just like any other Swedish peasant) has given a speech in D.C. in which he demanded that Americans completely quit using fossil fuels in ten years. The article states that the tickets for Al's harangue exhorted the attendees to "'please use public transit, bicycling or other climate-friendly means' to reach the lecture hall."

So of course, Al followed his own advice, right? Of course not:

"So how did Mr. Gore and his retinue arrive? In two Lincoln Town Cars and a full-sized SUV that sat idling with the air conditioners blasting while the Gore party was inside." (Emphasis mine)

I'll tell you what, Al. Make some sort of a real token gesture, any at all, to reduce your own piggish use of the "scarce" resources that's "killing" our planet, and I'll maybe, maybe, consider doing likewise.

Until then, go pound sand, you elitist hypocrite.
