It’s been several weeks since Al Gore was in the news and he must have read about James Cameron’s global warming hypocrisy and felt jealous.

ClimateDepot.com has the latest Gore hypocrisy update:

Recently, Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore toured again. Or maybe he does that all the time. This time, he turned up in Gothenburg (Sweden) for the usual alarmist talk. In advance, all distinguished guests were politely advised to – if possible – use any form of public transportation to go to the event, in order to minimize CO2 emissions.

Intriguingly, the Master of World Climate himself arrived in a rental car (with or without driver is unclear), from the airport, and subsequently left the engine running for the entire lecture. That is to say, about one hour. Incidentally, local legislation prohibits – for very good environmental reasons, i e pollution – any car engine running on empty for more than 60 seconds. Fines are severe. As far as I know, he was not fined.

Ahhhh, but if you thought Gore’s global warming hypocrisy was done for the day, you’d be wrong. He was just getting warmed up, so to speak.

After the ceremony in the Norwegian capital Oslo, it is customary that the laureate is invited to the Swedish capital Stockholm, for a cordial visit. The train ride, supposedly the environmental choice according to Mr. Gore, is approximately four hours. However, he opted for the cosier ride with one of the Swedish government aircrafts. As these can, according to the rules, only be used when a cabinet member is on board – and as the Swedish government after a short ceremonial visit – offered to fly him to Frankfurt (Germany) for his flight to the US, you can calculate both the manpower and the fuel used for this grand tour against man’s destruction of the planet.

Take that, James Cameron. Al Gore is still the king of global warming hypocrisy.

Gore should invest in Jackass futures. A more green mode of transportation cannot be found.

Perhaps he had some excess carbon credits to use up?
