Where's Al Gore now?

Obviously, Al Gore's personal "carbon footprint" is massive. As I dug deeper into Gore's own energy use, even I was surprised at the extent of the absolutely cartoonish gap between his words and his actions.

Remember, Al doesn't think that you should have the right to make your own hallway light bulb choice.

Note that this is only a partial list.

For example:
Gore is a businessman these days —— sitting on the boards of Apple Computer Inc. and Current TV, the cable and satellite channel he started with investor Joel Hyatt —— "and those take him (to the Bay Area) pretty regularly for board meetings and the like," said his spokeswoman, Kalee Kreider.
When he's not in a fossil fuel-powered jet, maybe Gore is relaxing in one of these three homes:
[Al and Tipper] have a new multimillion-dollar home in a tony section of Nashville and a family home in Virginia, and have recently bought a multimillion-dollar condo at the St. Regis condo/hotel in San Francisco.
A video of Gore taking a private jet is here.

Can anyone complete the list beyond early April? Hope so - it is important to know what is coming up in this campaign against rational thought.

Interesting piece. I used it in my blogg. I have written about this master hypocrite and Mr Doom and Gloom before. I will give you two more date for your collection.

Dec 12 Stockholm
Dec 12 Frankfurt

The Swedish government used the official government airplane to first fetch him in Oslo then later transport him to Frankfurt at a cost to the taxpayers of $ 22.000. Yep, he was given the royal treatment al right.

I used it in my blog before and now I updated it. I will give you one more date for your collection.

Oct 15 Stockholm

Al Gore will give his standard speech 1A (Instant Doom and Gloom) have some VIP mingle "Green Friends VIP" and meeting some honoraries. Admission 3.750 Kr ($ 536) per person. http://www.thinkinggreen.se/

It’s going to be interesting to se if the Swedish government is going to use the official government airplane to fetch and leave him this time too. But they will no doubt give him the royal treatment (which he likes so much) as usual.

Odd, Gore doesn't seem to have said what an apporpriate carbon footprint was for someone with this many appearances, and maintaining two at-home offices - which makes this blog a lie.

Maybe the idiot who wrote this can come up with someone with the same responsiblities but a greener lifestyle? lol

Maybe then he can explain what this has to do with anything but his Gore-worship. =)

I'm confused. Why doesn't Al Gore debate on the Global Warming issue? Wait, I think I understand. He'd be exposed as a fraud and the positions on Corporate Boards, with "green" money making plans, would dry up, he'd lose all power and prestige and have to live on the hundreds million he already made from fostering this bull. I apologize for asking such a silly question.

On NASA's climate for kids page, they state categorically that man is causing "fast" global warming...

http://climate.nasa.gov/kids/bigQuestions/whatDoesGCCmean/

and ask, "WHO is helping? People who live in tiny houses." I asked, "you mean people like Gore and Hansen?"

Not sure if that is still there;

Al and Pachauri make a great pair of huge carbon footprints!
