In an interview with London’s The Sun, Al Gore was invited to criticize the errant ways of Carbon Bigfoot couple David and Victoria Beckham, Gore responded, “I don’t think that’s my place. I don’t want to get into personally criticising anyone.”
As we know, Gore is notorious for smearing others, saying that scientists and others who disagree with him are “almost like the ones who still believe that the moon landing was staged in a movie lot in Arizona and those who believe the Earth is flat,” and that they do so, in the words of a reporter covering a recent speech, “because they are locked in a coalition with rich and powerful people who take advantage of the poor for economic profit.” Yeah, that’d be really venal.
My cynical wife suggested that this distinction is simply because Becks and Posh are part of Gore’s new clique of Hollywood jet-setting beautiful people. I simply refuse to believe that Gore is that craven.
By the way, in that same interview, Gore reveals his new emphasis is no longer to claim that “the polar ice caps” are melting — in the face of record ice mass at the cooling South Pole – but that “the North Polar ice cap” is doing so. So possibly this adaptive creature will begin speaking about the “hemispheric warming crisis”?
