Al Gore is Green: The Hypocrisy of it All

After it came to light (no pun intended) that Al Gore's Tennessee mansion uses 20 times the power of average Americans' homes, his spokesman released a statement that Comrade Gore purchases carbon offsets. The gullible bit and the matter was largely ignored.

Except for some who pursued the story further...

It seems Tovarisch Gore founded a sort of energy company that explores sources of alternative energy. Of course, this company has outside investors. Stockholders, in other words.

So, Al Gore's carbon offset purchases are in reality going to his own company. He is buying stock in his own company and claiming his carbon offset purchases somehow negate his energy hypocrisy!

Yes, Herr Gore is green. Green with money.
