Save the Planet

Gore thinks he’s saving the planet . I love this. The hubris. Most of us can’t save our sandwich from getting stale on the corners. But Gore’s got us frothed up about saving the planet. Well, hell, let’s do it Al (say this in a slow Southern drawl). Let’s save it mo fo. What to do first? How about, with every last penny, mobilize our forces to scare the beejeesus out of China, until they stop building those 1950s coal plants . That’d do a heckuva lot. Failing that, I’ll put in those energy saving bulbs (I do use these, actually, but only because it makes good financial sense). How many flourescent bulbs does it take to cancel out a coal plant? Have to start somewhere, I guess.
