Al Gore.... hypocrite much?

The big fat self appointed King of the environment, Al Gore, gave a speech in Gothenburg Sweden, pitching more of his enviro-crap. While all the invited guests were asked to arrive by environmentally friendly transportation, Al Gore not only rented a car to get there, but then he left it running in the parking lot for the duration of the entire speech-about 60 minutes. Of course, while there are fines in Sweden for letting your car idol for more than 60 seconds-Gore was not fined.
Recently, Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore toured again. Or maybe he does that all the time. This time, he turned up in Gothenburg (Sweden) for the usual alarmist talk. In advance, all distinguished guests were politely advised to – if possible – use any form of public transportation to go to the event, in order to minimize CO2 emissions.

Intriguingly, the Master of World Climate himself arrived in a rental car (with or without driver is unclear), from the airport, and subsequently left the engine running for the entire lecture. That is to say, about one hour. Incidentally, local legislation prohibits – for very good environmental reasons, i e pollution – any car engine running on empty for more than 60 seconds. Fines are severe. As far as I know, he was not fined.

He also opted to fly in a government plane to Stockholm, rather than take a 4 hour train ride. Finally, the Swedish government flew him to Frankfurt Germany.
I love the smell of hypocrisy from the left.
