Fat Albert's Gas Emissions

Al Gore, the Johann Tetzel of the 21st.century: "Conservation is for thee, but not for me."

Of course, he buys indulgences, I mean carbon offsets. But, as you might assume, that's just a scam too.

We can't really blame the eco-scammers though. Why shouldn't they want to get in on the game.

Update: A great, great, must read treastise here.

We want our lifestyles to remain intact, so we hire others to do the heavy lifting. While they may well be grateful for the jobs, are we to believe we have improved our own moral standing in any real way? Or are we more like Xerxes, happy that others are there to lift us along on our platforms?

Hmm...sounds like our stifling atmosphere isn't the only thing full of hot air.
