The neighbors are probably either conservatives sick of preachy liberals getting special treatment, or liberals who were shocked then they cooked, gasp, meat on that barbecue instead of tofu.

Speaking of hypocrisy, I wonder if "fighter for the little people" and environmentally responsible algore ever cleaned up his rental property in Tennessee?

If this is a federally protected wetland, get a federal prosecuter to go against them and throw them in jail for serveral years on a felony conviction.

Let the liberal environmental activists be on the receiving end of their laws for once.

But..but.. if she uses special lightbulbs and drives a Prius, it makes it all okay, doesn't it??

Yes, of course -- my bad. You're right, one "special" light bulb will undo 30 million dollars worth of consumption -- all the energy used in the building supplies to build 2 or 3 of their lavish homes. And the prius? A prius will "undo" the energy used in 40 private jet flights and over a hundred commercial jet trips to Europe. Yes, we all need to look up to the Davids and all their Hollywood friends for showing us the way... We'll cheerfully put our families in cramped cars so these glut... I'm mean, Davids can eat cake, I mean we'll eat water, I... I .. I mean we'll all look up to the witty and wonderful envir-"mental cases" Davids -- I... I... I.

I still love his show. It was hilarious Sunday night.

I'm sure he wouldn't want to hear this, but I like his show too... think "guilty pleasure".

A quick little back of the envelope calculation:

Seinfeld was on for 6 years, approximately 50 weeks a year (including repeats) - I'm not even counting syndication.

During those six years, the show averaged twenty million viewers.

An average television uses 100 watts per hour.

The total electriciy production of the U.S. in 2003 was 3883 billion kWh; Generating that electricity resulted in 2409 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions, and 4396 thousand tons of nitrogen oxides emissions.

Consequently, Larry David's show was responsible for over 186,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions during its regular lifetime, and is still a major polluter now in syndication. If David had not produced such a funny show, all those viewers could have turned their TV off and played Scrabble.

I loved the show - but these people are already more than a little hypocritical, without building a fire pit on wetlands.

I think the wife just hosted that "Earth to America". I didn't see that either, but it sounded like a condescending preach fest.

Someone on these boards said he was in Vegas and attended that show, and that it was nothing but leftwing Bush-bashing, blaming Bush for everything from global warming to the L.A. smog. He also noted that the show was so sparsely attended, they had to move all the people up to the front to make them look like a crowd on TV.

Cedric the Entertainer was in it, and I saw him on Jimmy Kimmel, "joking" about how they were all there to raise awareness about the environment, so they were flown in on private jets and taken to the hotel in limos. Kimmel asked if they went all the way and wasted food by throwing it out the limo windows as they drove in.

That story warms the cockles of ma heart :)

Okay, back to being POed.

Agreed. Have you heard the Wanda Sykes commercial for Greyhound buses? Maybe when celebrities start making some real sacrifices, like traveling Greyhound (or at the very least, commercial airlines) then they might have some room to talk. Until then, buying new light bulbs and a token Prius, then preaching to the rest of us just won't cut it.

I am not against reasonable conservation measures, but celebrities are at the extreme high end of consumption and it really ticks me off to be lectured by them.

I'm sure they told their "Friend" to get it done before Bobbie "the freeloader" Kennedy arrived in his fuel hog jet.

Send this to Hannity...

Whatever the Davids’s excuse, the situation has the Prius-loving couple’s

I've noticed on the show that when convienient the Davids drive a (gasp!) SUV.

I agree the show was hilarious, I think guys all over are going to pick up on the Big V Sign...

It's true. Larry David is a comedic genius of historical stature ranking with the ultra elite.

It's weird, sad, angering, that he is also such a douche.

Now I heard that the real problem was not the 26 foot barbecue but the full scale mock up of a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island.
