Cost To Make "An Inconvenient Truth" Production "Carbon Neutral" (Including All Office Space, Heating, Lighting, Etc.)? Four-hundred-eighty buck

A-har-har-har.

I've long wondered precisely how much jack these idiots were actually spending to make their lavish lifestyles supposedly "carbon neutral." It is simply not credible that a jetsetting millionaire -- one of the top 1000 carbon producers on the planet, in all of earth's history -- can spend a thousand dollars a year in Carbon Indulgences and make himself carbon neutral.

And that's what I've long figured these people were spending -- somewhere between $600 and $2000 bucks. Tops. Al Gore, I figured, being such a great big douche, probably spends more, in the $3000 range.

Well, now I have partial confirmation on that figure. If the carbon produced by a film, including all office space, power, heating, food transport, etc., can be offset by a mere $480 American, then I can't imagine Sheryl Crowe is paying more than that to "offset" the thousands of tons of CO2 she produces every single concert.

Hey, here's a question -- why isn't the MSM actually asking what these supposedly-carbon-neutral ecopaths are actually spending to insure their lifestyles are, in fact, carbon neutral?

Have any of you heard a single media buffoon express any amount of interest in this rather obvious point? Ever?

Why is not proper to ask how much Gore spends to "offset" his multi-million dollar lifestyle?

And if it's a pittance, as I imagine -- 1% or so, tops -- then it appears that 90% of the American population owes nothing at all, for even on our most enviromentally villainous days -- say, a summer cookout -- we don't produce the carbon that Al Gore, Sheryl Crowe, and Laurie David produce while taking a dump of average duration.
