Al Gore III, Who knew a Prius could be 100?
(Vanderbilt – ‘07)
Al Gore III’s attempt to smuggle illegal drugs north from the border caused him to press his Prius to100 miles per hour. An astounding feat in itself, the Prius went from being a ‘green machine’ to a giant carbon footprint maker at that speed. Perhaps the elder Gore should compare notes with Senator Ted from Massachusetts regarding the liberal upbringing of sons. Instilling good family values and spending quality time with the kids does help immensely.
Maybe Al Gore III was in a hurry to get tickets to the LIVE EARTH concerts? Because we all know that rock stars commute, never fly on private planes, never use excessive amounts of electricity. Maybe Al Gore III will get the Paris Hilton treatment and actually have to spend some time behind bars. Al III, you do realize that speeding causes global warming right?
Critics say that it lacks achievable goals, and that bringing in jet- setting rock stars in fuel-guzzling airliners to plug in to amplifier stacks and cranking up the sound may send mixed messages about energy conservation.
“The last thing the planet needs is a rock concert,” The Who’s singer Roger Daltrey recently told a British newspaper. (Breitbart)
BRITISH rock group Arctic Monkeys have become the latest music industry stars to question whether the performers taking part in Live Earth on Saturday are suitable climate change activists.
“Especially when we’re using enough power for 10 houses just for (stage) lighting. It’d be a bit hypocritical,” he said in an interview before a concert in Paris.
Bass player Nick O’Malley chimes in: “And we’re always jetting off on aeroplanes!”
(Oh those crazy gas saving, non-limo driving, non-private jet flying hipocrits telling us how to live our meager lives. What’s next, islamo-fascists telling us how to live in peace and sing kumbaya?)
Update I: The Save the World from the evil Republicans and Global warming goes forward
Why does this entire event remind me of watching Team America, World Police? MATT DAMON!
As the Rock Stars on different planets soak up the cheers and tell us how to live our lives while, well they being more important live life in less than a Green fashion. As Madonna who once sang, “Papa Don’t Preach” seems to have forgotten her past may want to actually look at her less than Green life style. Madonna’s carbon foot print may actually be larger than that of Godzilla.
Watching the veteran star lap up the adoration, her entourage could, however, be forgiven for exchanging slightly jaded glances – having witnessed her jet in for the concert from New York.
For her 2006 World Tour, she flew by private jet, transporting a team of up to 100 technicians and dancers around the globe. Waiting in the garage at home, she has a Mercedes Maybach, two Range Rovers, an Audi A8 and a Mini Cooper S.

The Corner (NRO): Before they started lecturing us about energy consumption, the music business spent most of the last century of popular music humungously expanding their carbon footprint just for the sake of it. Back when Ukulele Ike sang “I’m A Bear In A Ladies’ Boudoir” and “She’s My Sheba (I’m Her Sheik)” all he needed was a ukulele.
