They just keep coming
There is constant drumbeat of accusations of hypocrisy against Al Gore for using offsets. Although the people who do this sort of thing are aiming for the lizard brain, I suppose it is worth pointing out that it is an obviously bogus accusation.
Look, I’m an offset critic. I think offsets are one of the biggest wrong turns we can make in fighting environmental destruction, especially global warming. Al Gore, on the other hand, is a strong advocate of offsets. He helped get them into the Kyoto treaty. If I were to buy offsets, I would be a hypocrite — acting against my beliefs. When Al Gore buys offsets he is acting according to his beliefs. Regardless of whether those beliefs are right or wrong, no hypocrisy is involved.
