Al Gore -- He did it again.
Recently, Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore toured again. Or maybe he does that all the time. This time, he turned up in Gothenburg (Sweden) for the usual alarmist talk. In advance, all distinguished guests were politely advised to if possible use any form of public transportation to go to the event, in order to minimize CO2 emissions.
Intriguingly, the Master of World Climate himself arrived in a rental car (with or without driver is unclear), from the airport, and subsequently left the engine running for the entire lecture. That is to say, about one hour. Incidentally, local legislation prohibits for very good environmental reasons, i e pollution any car engine running on empty for more than 60 seconds. Fines are severe. As far as I know, he was not fined.
It starts to form a pattern.
After the ceremony in the Norwegian capital Oslo, it is customary that the laureate is invited to the Swedish capital Stockholm, for a cordial visit. The train ride, supposedly the environmental choice according to Mr. Gore, is approximately four hours. However, he opted for the cosier ride with one of the Swedish government aircrafts. As these can, according to the rules, only be used when a cabinet member is on board and as the Swedish government after a short ceremonial visit offered to fly him to Frankfurt (Germany) for his flight to the US, you can calculate both the manpower and the fuel used for this grand tour against man's destruction of the planet.
I’m impressed that somebody is paying attention and reporting this.
It’s ok for this fat pig to leave his SUV running for an hour while he exudes CO2 and Methane in front of the adoring throng.
But it’s not ok for you to even have an SUV.
Altruists expect you to have to sacrifice while they are exempt.
Can’t confirm but it was posted that Gore lives in a 9000 sqft mansion with 5 or 6 fireplaces.
Also, he lives there alone all by himself.
Conservation is for the little people.
Is this info on the front page of the NYTimes?
Yup. These jackasses own a Prius for show...and another 3 gas guzzlers as their real drive. Buncha phonies. I live in L.A. and know these lying libtards.
I don’t think so. I think he just found a profitable schtick that he can peddle to the masses. Just another money huckster.
I don’t think he believes the crap he’s spewing.
If you can make a metric ton of cash out of a trusting audience what would you do?
He was just keeping the car warm. It must have been really cold outside.
Your home town!
Carbon footprint much.
