Gore lets car idle for one hour while he’s inside giving a speech

by editor on October 31, 2010

It’s been several weeks since Al Gore was in the news and he must have read about James Cameron’s global warming hypocrisy and felt jealous.

al gore hypocrisy

"I think I'm getting a canker sore," Gore said. "They're caused by global warming, you know."

ClimateDepot.com has the latest Gore hypocrisy update:

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.

Ahhhh, but if you thought Gore’s global warming hypocrisy was done for the day, you’d be wrong. He was just getting warmed up, so to speak.

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.

Take that, James Cameron. Al Gore is still the king of global warming hypocrisy.

How is this Piece of Crap any different than the “evil” industrialists that the Left constantly cries about? Seriously?

One big way he is different….at least men like Carnegie, Ford, Westinghouse and Rockefeller actually produced things…and didn’t STEAL trillions of dollars on a lie.

Gore is an evil man.

Mr. Smarty-Pants, his private jet was solar powered or lunar-powered since it was a full moon & actually filtered carbon electrons out of the air. Big Al simply forgot he wasn’t ridding in an electric car. Nobel Laureate, Honorary Doctorate, Senator, Vice President, cheated-out-of-the-presidency, world-saving, ManBearPig hunting, Academy Award winning, internet inventing, Vietnam war Heroes should not have to be bothered by such trifling matters. BTY I just spoke with him at “The Leauge of Social Justice Fortress of Solitude Bat Cave.

Looks like something left a nasty taste in his mouth.

Ha! Great choice of pictures! This shot should be right next to “Snake Oil” in the dictionary.
