Hot Air From Al Gore

Ive got an inconvenient truth for you ...you are full of shit !

The difficulty is that Hollywood sees itself as a community of sophisticated kingmakers. It was more embarrassing than funny to see leading actor Leonardo DiCaprio, during the ceremony, trying to convince former vice president and 2000 presidential nominee Al Gore to announce his plans to run in 2008. The Academy was celebrating Gore's hard-hitting and enjoyable global warming film, The Inconvenient Truth( Andrew Hagan)

'Al Gore's mansion consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year, according to the Nashville Electric Service (NES). The average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year, according to the Department of Energy. In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh-more than 20 times the national average. In total, Gore paid nearly $30,000 in combined electricity and natural gas bills for his Nashville estate in 2006' - The Tennessee Center for Policy Research turns the heat on Gore, winner of an Oscar this week for' An Inconvenient Truth', his film about global warming and the importance of energy conservation.

And lets not forget as previously mentioned

Why did Al Gore emote about the snows leaving Kilimanjaro when he knows there has been no rise in temperature and it is entirely the result of deforestation and consequent dehydration ? He is absolutely aware of this ; even if you are not .

Sanctimonious twat. (Gore, not you N)

My brother in-law is an engineer for Gillette living expat with his tribe in Wayland Boston USA. The house they gave him was too big (4000 sq ft) It's unfurnished and they're not going to spend loads kitting it out as they intend to move back in 2 years. They're rattling around in it like peas in a drum. But "The house goes with the status of your Job, Man!" so they've stayed put.

£300 per month heating the place ! It needs 2 boilers and is timber framed, poorly insulated by our standards.

Ever been to Florida ? Where they fly millions of people over to see shows banging on about the plight of Manitees ? What schmaltzy shit !

But back to Cameron ...

If planting a tree for every flight is a good idea and does anything for the environment I suggest this:

Why not be proactive and plant forests and forests of the bloody things and cure global warming in one hit ?

Because plant a tree is a bollocks idea and they know it ! So is a Toyota Prius which has a dust-to-dust cost far exceeding a standard saloon (no economies of scale in production) - then there's the problems with dumping batteries.

Cycling to work with a limo in tow is up there with hug-a-hoodie.

Oh I gerrit. It's all about tax. Silly me.
