Global Warming Hypocrisy Breaking Out All Over

Algore is not the only global warming plastic bananas out there. Add California' Senior US Senator Dianne Feinstein and California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to the list.

While Dianne Feinstein and Arnold Schwarzenegger lecture us and propose greenhouse gas laws that the rest of us are to follow, they fly on private jets. It would take the average American nearly two years to spew as much carbon into the atmosphere as she does during one cross country flight on her husband's private jet.

Plus, those global warming indulgences handed out to Hollywood celebrities during the Academy Awards might cause the recipients more than just embarassment.

Hat tip, the Blogfather.

Update: A carbon trading scheme that little people can use.

Are you concerned that your profligate personal lifestyle is harming the environment? Losing sleep over the long-term ecological damage resulting from those greenhouse gases constantly emitted by your family, your cars, your pets, and your shrubbery? Do you want to become carbon-neutral, but just don't know how?

Well rejoice, sinner! Carbon atonement is no longer the exclusive preserve of the Malibu set -- with the Iowahawk EcoPals Network! This unique new system lets you, the average Joe planet rapist, cleanse your tortured psyche of the stain of enviro-guilt for as little as $9.95 per year! If enough of you follow this simple three step program, we can save the world for our children -- who will soon be frolicking with healthy polar bears atop Earth's reforested glaciers. Act now before it's too late!
