Al Gore was at Berkeley yesterday to lend his celebrity and activist power in supporting Proposition 87, a bill that will tax oil companies more than $4 billion dollars in support of renewable energy and programs aimed at reducing the impact of Global Warming.
Unfortunately, Gore didn’t quite make the entrance green activists might have been looking for. Sure, he arrived in a Toyota Prius; but his motorcade included “three motorcycles, two limousines and a Dodge Ram 1500 light duty truck.” WTF? Why the truck? Is it a security measure? Why two limousines? I’m not at all going to attempt to defend this one. I can understand having security precautions in place for the former V.P.; but a truck? Aye….
