Global Alarmist Extraordinaire Al Gore Doesn't Participate In Earth Hour-200th Post

Report: Gore’s Lights Left on for Media-Hyped 'Earth Hour'

We're nearly 24 hours out of Earth Hour and the media are already proclaiming it a success as Michael Bates pointed out for NewsBusters in a blog post earlier today.

However one prominent global warming alarmist reportedly didn't fully participate in the Earth Hour festivities. According to Drew Johnson, president of the Tennessee Center for Policy Research, global warming activist and former Vice President Al Gore left his lights for the hyped Earth Hour.

"I pulled up to Al's house, located in the posh Belle Meade section of Nashville, at 8:48pm - right in the middle of Earth Hour," Johnson wrote and reprinted on the Washington Examiner's blog on March 29. "I found that the main spotlights that usually illuminate his 9,000 square foot mansion were dark, but several of the lights inside the house were on."

The mainstream media gave the actual event plenty of free publicity, as actor Edward Norton, the official U.S. ambassador for Earth Hour, made the media rounds touting the event. Norton went as far as proclaiming the event to be as symbolically important as the Selma march, on two separate occasions - on NBC's March 27 "Today" and CNN's March 25 "Larry King Live."

However, it begs the question that if any of these same media outlets, that have had a love affair with Gore in the past - March 21, 2007 "Today" and May 22, 2007 "Larry King Live" - will pick up on the former vice president's lack of Earth Hour participation.


My Thoughts

Does Al Gore even believe what he preaches? It doesn't seem like he does because he thumbs the figurative eye all the time. Whether it be his private jet or his excessive electrical usage, he sounds more like part of the problem than the answer. Like many snooty liberals, he lives by the saying of "Do as I say not as I do".
