More Gore the Energy ...

I have been longing for an article like this, about our dear friend Al Gore, doomsayer extraordinaire. Could it be that he is not the ecophile he purports to be?

Al Gore owns oil stocks, receives royalties from an allegedly polluting zinc mine, and has failed to take advantage of eco-friendly energy near his D.C.-area home. I don't find any of these things personally offensive. I do think they demonstrate a clear example of hypocrisy. There is also this notion of buying "renewable energy credits" to live a carbon-neutral lifestyle. This concept has long bothered me, as it doesn't make a great deal of sense.

Read the article for more details.
