PAY NO ATTENTION TO THAT MAN BEHIND THE CARBON OFFSETS
Gore Responds To Drudge's Latest Hysterics

The right-wing is angry that Al Gore has won so much public attention and goodwill for his work on global warming... [Drudge stinks, blah blah blah, and now the rationalizations]

1) Gore's family has taken numerous steps to reduce the carbon footprint of their private residence, including signing up for 100 percent green power through Green Power Switch, installing solar panels, and using compact fluorescent bulbs and other energy saving technology.

2) Gore has had a consistent position of purchasing carbon offsets to offset the family's carbon footprint -- a concept the right-wing fails to understand...

These are the lengths that climate skeptics must go to suppress action on global warming. There is no meaningful debate within the scientific community, so the right-wing busies itself with talk about how much electricity Al Gore's house uses -- and even then they distort the truth.
Think Progress digg this
Is it that the evil right-wingers don't understand it, or that they don't buy it? If we're looking at gondolas floating down Wall Street in 20 years, what good does it do to plant some trees? Are they from Krypton or something? And you're not even planting them yourself, you're buying "carbon offsets" from somebody who tells you they're being planted so you can feel better about yourself. Where are these trees being planted? By whom? How long will it take for these miraculous fast-growing trees to counteract your wastefulness? Hurry!

Not to mention that if I can barely afford my electric bill when I keep my thermostat at 68 degrees in the winter and only turn on the lights at night to keep from tripping and breaking my neck when I get up to take a piss, how am I supposed to afford "carbon offsets"?

It's great that he's using solar panels and all that, but notice he's not disputing how huge his electric bill still is. What the hell is he doing in there? Is he a Terminator from the future and requires constant recharging? (That would explain pretty much everything.)

Oh, and notice that there's "no meaningful debate" about global warming. I believe that's what we call a weasel word.

He should just be done with it and patiently explain to us that he has a magic wand that makes everything okay. Some of these dopes would fall for it. "You right-wingers just can't get it through your thick skulls: He's not wrecking the environment like everybody else is because he's a warlock!"
