Not Easy Being Green II

For someone who keeps inveighing the rest of us to conserve, Al Gore leads a pretty high-energy lifestyle.

All the big-Time Hollywood types will probably be unable to cut back much on their usage because those big mansions cost a bundle to heat and cool. They won't want to move, ride mass transit, or any solutions they have for the serfs. Maybe they are hoping the peasantry can do so much conserving they won't have to. I do think, however, that conserving everything is a conservative principle, and I try not to be wasteful as much as possible. I think most people on budgets do. When you are on your soap box expounding platitudes it's so easy. Real life is not quite so cut and dry.

The "have-mores" can contribute significantly by having a zero carbon footprint and investing some of their assets in alternative and renewable energy. Al Gore is chairman of Generation Investment Management, LLP that invests in alternative, renewable and carbon free energy producing businesses.

Putting petty politics aside. Al Gore is a messenger and however much people like Carol want to smear him, this in no way changes the science and scientific findings behind global warming. We as civilized and educated people, should be able to agree, that we have a moral obligation to leave the planet to our children and future generations, better or at least at the minimum the same as we found it.

Negativism is suggesting that solving this problem will lead to changes that will be painful and harmful. History has proven that humans meet challenges with intelligent solutions and make the world better and safer in the process.
