Thank you for documenting that Gore's house is only half the size Daisy claimed and that he doesn't own a private plane.

The point is the same. He doesn't practice what he preaches.

So what? Neither do many nurses. Does that invalidate modern medicine?

It does not invalidate modern medicine. But if for instance a nurse who smokes is attempting to give a pt education re: the need to stop smoking how effective will that ed be when the pt knows the nurse smokes. Same principle with Gore. The message is not effective.

That notion is cute when expressed by a Trump supporter.

I'm still trying to figure out how any of this character assassination disproves the science of climate change.

Are you saying he has a condo in SanFran also? I was talking about the mansion in Monticieto, also the home in TN is a 20 room mansion....you don't think that this is a waste of resources....either way it is a little hypocritical for him to tell others to conserve/watch their C02. And just because an article is on (what you claim) is a right wing website doesn't mean it is not true.

You insist that having a large home/business is somehow hypocritical, even though he has taken steps to reduce his carbon footprint.

Al Gore Explains How He Lowers His Carbon Footprint : Ecorazzi

What would he need to do in order not to be seen as hypocrite? Live in a cave, eat berries and dress in grape leaves?

Even that would not be enough for the people who have already decided they don't want to hear the message. They will always find some criticism to wield as a distraction/deflection.

The issue to me as that many politicians and liberal celebrities want to dictate how we live our lives while they themselves live a different way.

I can name quite a few conservatives that do the same

thing, especially the family values crowd: serial adulterers, abortions for their pregnant mistresses, taking government handouts hand over fist ...

I still fail to see what any of it has to do with the science of climate change.

I didn't blame one political party of another.

It has nothing to do with climate change. But, a few posters here seem to be offended by the notion that Gore is a hypocrite, and they keep wanting to discuss it.

I'm happy to talk about you believing that Gore is a hypocrite while you also support hypocrisy from your chosen political leadership.

I bet you would. I have better things to do, however.

ADMIN REQUEST

Let's get this discussion back on topic - how the environment and climate change affects us and impacts the patient population we see daily.

This is not a political discussion thread. If you want to discuss the politics, please start another thread. Future political posts will be removed.
