How Gore's Massive Energy Consumption
Saves The World
by Mark Steyn - March 4th, 2007 - The Chicago Sun Times
Stop me if you've heard this before, but the other day the Rev. Al Gore declared that "climate change" was "the most important moral, ethical, spiritual and political issue humankind has ever faced.'' Ever. I believe that was the same day it was revealed that George W. Bush's ranch in Texas is more environmentally friendly than the Gore mansion in Tennessee.
What's he doing in there? Clamping Tipper to the electrodes and zapping her across the rec room every night? [What an image that is!] No, no, don't worry. Al's massive energy consumption is due entirely to his concern about the way we're depleting the Earth's resources. When I say "we," I don't mean Al, of course. I mean you -- yes, you, Earl Schlub, in the basement apartment at 29 Elm St. You're irresponsibly depleting the Earth's resources by using that electric washer when you could be down by the river with the native women beating your loin cloth dry on the rock while singing traditional village work chants all morning long.
Mark Steyn is a great satirist. However you have to ask if anything is more ridiculous than Al Gore claiming to save the world. Isn't that the ultimate satire?
Read the article anyway. It will give you a great laugh to start the day. Steyn is the best.
