Gore Flies Nearly 3,000 Miles to Tell Us to Stop Using Carbon-Based Fuels


There’s hypocrisy. Then there’s former Vice President Al Gore. For him, it’s like a superpower.

Gore was the headliner for CNN’s “global town hall event” called “THE CLIMATE CRISIS.” It included moderator Anderson Cooper, Al Gore and questioners from the audience. The actual town hall took place in New York City, according to a CNN spokesperson.

“I just came from Seattle yesterday and they rely on the snow and ice pack there for part of their water supplies and it’s been declining rapidly,” he told Cooper.

That location is the key. Google Maps states that a flight from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to New York’s LaGuardia Airport is roughly 2,854 miles. That works out to 1.3 tons of carbon produced for just this one trip, according to Berkeley’s CoolClimate Network carbon footprint calculator.
