Although sometimes I get frustrated with Al Gore (mainly cause the veg thing), in general I give him a whole lot of credit for being a leader in the environmental revolution. However, like all celebs, Gore has put himself in the spotlight and is therefore subject to all the scrutiny that comes with it. And scrutiny there is!
The internet is a buzzin’ this week after the former vice-president purchased a 100-foot houseboat that’s docked on Center Hill Lake. Now before you get your organic cotton panties in a bunch, please know that this boat isn’t your typical gas-guzzler. Al’s boat is blanketed with solar panels, runs on biodiesel and is aptly named Bio-Solar One.
Still, global warming skeptics have been quick to light their torches and storm the castle over this “eco-hypocrisy.” Radio talk show host Steve Gill, a regular Gore basher, says that Gore isn’t practicing what he’s preaching when it comes to “so-called global warming.” “So-called,” huh? Because 16 million hurricanes in three weeks is TOTALLY normal and has nothing to do with our actions. RIIIIIIGHT!
What do you think Ecorazzi readers? Should Gore have passed on the Bio-Solar One or is the boat cool because it’s promoting solar and biodiesel alternatives ? Chime in and share your thoughts!
