It is well known that Al Gore is an extravagant person. He frequently will fly by private jet and posh limousine and then get in a hybrid car for the last few blocks/miles before an appearance. It is unfortunate that this kind of duplicity is common-place with activists, especially celebrity activists. It is also a shame that something that is such an "emergency" can be besmirched by their activity.
The fact is that climate change/global warming as defined cannot be confronted without significant government control and changes to our open markets and entire system. You would think that such a thing would bother a rich person. But that is the beauty of socialism in their minds - the rich still stay rich and everyone else is a serf. It is a return to feudalism.

I was certainly annoyed during An Inconvenient Truth that we constantly see Gore riding in a limousine (I sincerely doubt it was running on alternative energy). I actually thought about starting a company to rent out luxury hybrids, but since I have no capital and no experience running a business, I didn't...
