Al Gore is one of the greatest hypocrites this planet has ever produced. And I hate hypocrisy.
Because of him and his fucking “Inconvenient Truth” the world is going berserk.
Scientists are still divided as to the cause of Global Warming. There are still many eminent experts who say that the jury is still out. But this damned glory seeker is being cited as Gospel.
Suppose, just for a moment, that he is right. Just suppose that mankind is affecting climate change. Then what should the Chief Advocate be doing about it? He should be leading by example. He should be switching off his lights. He should be refusing to fly [which they claim is one of the greatest causes of damage]. Instead of which, he is jetting non-stop around the world, lapping up the plaudits, and glorying in his eco-god status. He has a 20 room house [and pool house] that consumed 221,000 kilowatt-hours in 2006, which is more than 20 times the national average of 10,656 kilowatt-hours.
I lead a quiet life. In the last two years, I have not flown. I have driven a total of 6,600 kilometres. Where possible, I use CFL bulbs [not because of the environment, but because they are cheaper to run, and last longer]. I produce very little waste and put out my bin about once a month. But because of Gore, we have the likes of John Gormless of the Limp Side Salad Green Party getting on his eco-wagon and telling us how we are to lead our lives. We aren’t allowed bonfires. They are banning ordinary lightbulbs. They are taxing fuel inefficient cars. What next? Are they going to ban matches because they are made of wood? Are we going to be forced to become vegetarian because animals produce too much methane?
Because of Gore and Gormless, I am going to be forced to use CFL bulbs everywhere. But some of the lights are only on for a very short time, for example when I enter the garage or a spare room. And CFL bulbs use more power if used for very short periods. So my power consumption is going to go up.
I won’t even start into the fact that I contribute far less than a trillionth of polluting gases, compared to governments and industry. Or the fact that my contribution to global warming is equivalent to a flea pissing in the ocean.
You started it all, Gore. You’re a wanker. You may not like the fact.
But it’s just an inconvenient truth.
