"Do As I Say, Not As I Do"

You've gotta love the hypocrisy of someone like Al Gore, whose mansion uses more energy in a single month than most families use in a year, while he's meanwhile lecturing all the "little people" that we're causing global warming and the end of the world and we need to sacrifice, sacrifice...while he uses all the energy he wants and makes himself feel better about it by purchasing "carbon offsets."

I love Ed Morrissey's term for the nonsensical concept of purchasing carbon offsets -- Ed calls it "a modern form of indulgences." That is so apt! Mr. Gore refuses to sacrifice, so he tries to assuage his guilt buying "offsets."

More good stuff at The Anchoress, who notes that President Bush's Texas home is ecology friendly, and largely ignored by the media.
