Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego, I mean Al Gore?

Obviously, Al Gore’s personal “carbon footprint” is massive. As I dug deeper into Gore’s own energy use, even I was surprised at the extent of the absolutely cartoonish gap between his words and his actions.

Remember, Al doesn’t think that you should have the right to make your own hallway light bulb choice.

Some recent stops on Gore’s travel schedule (which some are calling his “con-trail"): October 24, 2008--Seattle, October 7, 2008--Nashville,

Note that this is only a partial list. For example: Gore is a businessman these days sitting on the boards of Apple Computer Inc. and Current TV, the cable and satellite channel he started with investor Joel Hyatt “and those take him (to the Bay Area) pretty regularly for board meetings and the like,” said his spokeswoman, Kalee Kreider. When he’s not in a fossil fuel-powered jet, maybe Gore is relaxing in one of these three homes: [Al and Tipper] have a new multimillion-dollar home in a tony section of Nashville and a family home in Virginia, and have recently bought a multimillion-dollar condo at the St. Regis condo/hotel in San Francisco. A video of Gore taking a private jet is here. A related article is here, entitled “Gore home’s energy use: 20 times average”.
