Is this the world's silliest man?


I managed to almost completely avoid the utterly ridiculous event called Live Earth last night. I did catch a glimpse of it while channel surfing and it looks like it had a carbon footprint about the size of Mexico City.

Were I someone who believed that global warming constituted a epochal crisis, events like this and spokesman like Al Gore would drive me to paroxysm.

According to Gore, global warming is an existential crisis. Our very existence is threatened - and soon.

Let's put aside the fact that Gore's dire view of global warming has little scientific support. The odd thing is that, as sure as he is that the sky is falling, he can't be bothered to change his own sybaritic life style, relying on this carbon offset scam. If these truly made one's life carbon neutral, then why should anyone have to reduce carbon emissions? Let's just make sure that we have enough private and public investments in clean technology or plant enough trees to let everyone continue to rock and roll. (Wait, that's too much like the conservative approach to the problem.)

We are staring at the end of the world as we know it, but Al and Tipper must continue to live like the Saudi royal family.

More later.

He looks silly and acts silly and says silly things. But he's become a multi-millionaire from this act of his.

And if anyone really gets scared by his spiel, then all they have to do is purchase carbon offsets from this company he founded that sells them.

Really silly, ain'a?

You can't honestly believe that GWB and his administration have done a better job than Gore would have done, you've got to be lving near the same river as W.: DeNile.

Yes, we all know Al Gore is a silly, silly man.

Are you going to comment on the hypocrisy of Louisiana's Senator Vitter, who Larry Flynt forced into confessing that he has been planking Washington prostitutes while waxing eloquently about "family values" and the defense of marriage against gay people?

Let's see whether or not you are a hypocrite as well?
