Indulgences by Gore
Hypocricy knows no bounds
A "carbon offset" is a pure gimmick. Gore uses his own company to allow him to state that he has bought offsets for his lavish use of carbon. What this means is that he has set the price for his offsets himself, which probably amounts to some boy planting a tree in the Gobi Desert sand for $1.95 per 1,000 “offsets.” This makes Gore pure as crystal for a few bucks? Unbelievable!
Indulgences of the real kind would set Gore back about $100,000 a year. I seriously doubt that he has put out that kind of money for a gimmick.
