Saving The Planet, Limousine Liberal Style

“What Mr. Gore has asked is that every family calculate their carbon footprint and try to reduce it as much as possible. Once they have done so, he then advocates that they purchase offsets, as the Gore’s do, to bring their footprint down to zero.” — Al Gore[1]

First, you try to reduce how much energy you are using (which is fine) and then you pay some scam artist to “bring (your) footprint down to zero.

In other words, if you are a greenie like Al Gore, you can spend your days lecturing other Americans about their energy consumption and global warming while simultaneously using 20 times[2] as much energy as the average person. Yet, because you’re rich enough to spend money on “carbon reduction” AKA as paying people to assuage your guilt, your energy usage isn’t supposed to count somehow. Even the less deluded liberals[3] realize that’s complete bunkum.

Still, if Al Gore and his global alarmist pals wanted to engage in this nonsense, fine. It’s their money and if they’re like Al Gore, they have so much of it, that if you piled it up in a stack of twenties, it would be bigger than the average person’s house.

However, the average person doesn’t have the money to waste on this nonsense and unlike Gore, they don’t have any Hollywood pals to impress, so they’re not going to go along with this willingly, despite a global warming propaganda campaign that puts anything the Soviets ever did to shame. So, as always, liberals like Al Gore want to use the power of government to force the rest of America to go along with their fantasies.

Remember when liberals said they wanted to make abortion, “safe, legal, and rare?” Well, now they want to do almost the same thing to energy. They want it to be, safe, expensive, and rare — and unlike their abortion slogan, they mean it this time.
