Maybe Gore's just watching the documentary over. And over. And over. And over. . .

Al Gore pays for offsets. He's talked about them quite a bit if you've gotten to see him live. I'm not sure why it wasn't included in the documentary, because it has been part of his lecture series.

This is another swiftboating attempt.

I don't think you should call him a hypocrite. The awareness he's raised due to his speaking and movie more than offset the amount of electricity he uses. You want him to work by candle light? Then he'd get in troule for sending phosphourous into the atmosphere from the matches. Give the guy a break <-- and this coming from someone that doesn't really like Gore.

Maybe the middle class people should downsize and live in the lower class neighborhoods to be with the people. They can splice power from the street lights. Think of all the seals we could save!

I swear I don't get some of you. You go around and bash the fuck out of Bush. Gore who is going around slamming the administration about it's lack of doing something to stop global warming uses 20times more energy than a regular house hold. And he still complains about the war in iraq, while that oil lights his house at 30 grand a month.

but even if Gore is a hypocrite, that doesn't mean he's wrong about global warming and it doesn't negate the good work he's done spreading awareness.

i don't think the comparison to bashing Bush holds water in this particular situation. i think it makes more sense to compare the people who are bashing Gore over this to the people who bash Bono for advocating debt relief and then moving many of U2's assets into the relative tax haven of The Netherlands when part of Irish taxes are used for things like African debt relief and charitable giving.

Is Al Gore's electric bill costing any American or Iraqi his or her life?
