deflating the Gore pseudo-scandal

The wingnut whining about Gore’s real-life environmentalism has been extraordinary ever since his Oscar win for An Inconvenient Truth. David Roberts deflates the hype at HuffPo:

Gore has done heroic work making global warming a top issue for governments the world over. He has prompted more individual and collective action on this issue than anyone else alive. The changes he has wrought outweigh his personal carbon emissions by many orders of magnitude.

They know Gore's message is winning. They know they are losing. Even if they're successful in tarnishing Gore, it won't change that.
