For you but not me

It's fine for me to tell you to be conscientious of your carbon footprint while I simultaneously ignore mine, because I can buy indulgences.

This is what the left says, and it doesn't stop with Al Gore.

During the year, the show has featured countless segments about everyone doing his or her part to curb the threat of global warming, but apparently they didn’t get the memo in time to apply their logic to their broadcast.
“I tallied it up and we have circled the globe 12 times, 12 times in one year, 315,688 miles,” Roberts said.
The inconvenient truth of the matter is that among the four of them, they have emitted 61.45 tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere far exceeding the amount that Al Gore’s ClimateCrisis.Net allots.
If I cared about CO2 (I don't) I would be simply outraged about this. But then again, if I cared about CO2 I'd be a liberal, in which case I would trundle out the argument of moral authority (tm) and recognize the fact that by spreading the Global Warming Climate Change Gospel they are more than offsetting their carbon footprint.

Kind of how by spending billions of dollars in earmarks this session of congress has become the model for fiscal responsibility. Right?

Oh, was that below the belt?

UPDATE: And by the way, Good Morning America has officially contributed to the deaths of innocents.

Doctors warn that the warmer weather expected with climate change might also produce more heart problems.

"If it really is a few degrees warmer in the next 50 years, we could definitely have more cardiovascular disease," said Dr. Karin Schenck-Gustafsson, of the department of cardiology at Sweden's Karolinska Institute.

On the sidelines of the European Society of Cardiology's annual meeting in Vienna this week, some experts said that the issue deserved more attention. It's well-known that people have more heart problems when it's hot. (Duh).

Just thought I'd let you know.

And P.S. Dr. Karin Schenck-Gustafsson is apparently a fellow Denier (above, bold). Glad to have her aboard!

It is also well know that people have even more heart problems when it is cold, See Bjor Lomborg;s latest book "Cool It." It seems to me that Sweden is in for less of the latter effect since global warming will be experienced primarily in northern latitudes.

You are such an idiot. You defile the name of Matt. I'm going to establish an International Council for Guys Named Matt, so we can all agree to kick you out of the club. You're an embarrassment. Seriously, you are such an egghead.

You are a loyalist to the extreme. You have no brain of your own. If you would FOR ONCE look at an issue from both sides and come to an objective conclusion, please for the LOVE OF GOD let it be ecological destruction. You are so incredibly, ridiculously wrong about everything... but when it comes to global warming and the threat that completely unregulated consumption and capitalism pose to the future of the entire planet, you're just a dunce. You're ignorant, period. Worse than ignorant, you're stupid, because you wake up every morning vowing never to take a liberal seriously, and to only get your information from republican loyalists who publicly announce their hatred of liberals. You are the worst kind of follower. You're a sheep... but even sheep have brains.
