On the Environment, Will Hollywood Act Responsibly?

By April 25, 2007Global Warming

Here’s an article from yesterday’s Washington Times about global warming skeptic Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) and his call for the Hollywood hypocrites to lower their carbon footprint. Inhofe has called on such luminaries as Al Gore and John Travolta (who owns a few jets himself), to reduce their carbon footprint to a level commensurate with that of the average American household by Earth Day 2008. It sure seems to be a laudable goal for anyone who cares to match their actions to their words, but thus far he has no takers.

You’ll recall that Al Gore’s house eats energy at a rate not equaled by any average American household. Even green crusader Laurie David has been criticized for her environmental insensitivity.

It really is the height of hypocrisy for these folks, with their enormous multiple homes and private jets to preach to us plain folks about reducing our carbon footprint. Maybe these actors should start acting more responsibly.
