I also assume that Gore would never sully himself by flying commercial with the great unwashed. But that's okay - with enough scratch, you can offset all that private jet greenhouse gas.
Here's Al Gore's "serious effort" to have a zero carbon footprint: his Tennessee mansion, which according to the Nashville Electric Service uses more electricity in a month than the average American home uses in a year.
His California spread, about which I am unable to find any energy use data.
Gore deploys the most ludicrous fiction to assert he's leading a carbon neutral personal life, via the purchase of "carbon offsets." In other words, you can consume all the energy you want as long as you have the $ to afford the "offsets." Bonus points of course, if you chair and co-own the company selling you those offsets: Generation Investment Management.
What a venal dbag.
Green energy vs. dead birds. Reminds me of Mad Magazine's Spy vs. Spy when I was a kid.
To be fair, I have in the past admonished Mark to dismount that same horse.
The view in [sic] is great, thanks for asking. Have a good time at your next GED reunion.
Graham - sounds like Hartless has opened up one of your personal scabs. As a card carrying heathen, I'll take his horse over your petulant tantrum. You appear to have implicit faith in public education - amusing, since it has failed to apprise you of the distinctions between and appropriate uses of 'conscious' and 'conscience.'
What utterly meaningless pap. Ye gods.
Cocker? I don't even know her.
This juvenile remark to be deleted in 3, 2, 1...
Or just plain greedy, and see what they believe is an easy score. If only my 1965 Plymouth Barracuda had been legal, then it would never have been stolen... Oh, wait - it was legal. Never mind.
If Ms. Mason finds leash law enforcement to be “oppressive”, I’d suggest she needs to get out more. She writes: “There is a significant portion of knowledgeable, conscientious dog owners in this town…”
No doubt. I’m one of them. The problem is that for every responsible owner in Steamboat, there are about 20 pinheads. Multiply that by 10 during the season when the brain dead 20 something transients decide it’d be cool to have a dog in ‘dog town.’
If Ms. Mason gets busted for a violation because she “feel[s]” her conscientiousness entitles her to an exemption, then she’ll have even more angst to fuel another ‘oh woe is me, I’ve been dismissed and oppressed’ dissertation.
