Who cares if Al Gore goes on a private jet, as long as he buys the appropriate carbon offset?

(A private jet, for those who may not realize it, is just about the single most carbon-wasteful thing in the world, except maybe burning high-sulfur coal for the sheer fun of it.)

My comment after watching an inconvenient truth was that Al spent a lot of time driving around by himself while he me I should reduce carbon emissions. He doesn’t even drive the speed limit. Neither does his kid.
