Environmental Friend or Foe?
As the Oscar for "An Inconvenient Truth" was being handed to him, his house was generating
one of the biggest carbon footprints
on the planet.
Gore's reply was that he offsets his large shoe size by purchasing reductions in CO2 elsewhere in the world. Though, some also believe
that it is all, in fact, a money making scam.
What do you think? Has Gore done more harm than good? Or does the work justify a lavish lifestyle?
Personally, I think the idea of "carbon neutral" lifestyles and "offsetting carbon footprints" is a lot like Indulgences
. So the rich are allowed to pollute, because they can spend the money to make it all better? I don't like that idea at all.
