This beautiful chestnut oak is in Al Gore’s neighborhood. We figured it was about time Al was in a good news story about the environment. We’re not sure what’s more disappointing—the media’s post-Oscars “gotcha” reporting or Al’s continued inability to rise above the fray. But all good movements need a nutty loudmouth on the team, so that someone presenting sensible discourse (pick your favorite here—Paul Hawken, William McDonough, Ray Anderson, David Briley) can distance themselves from him and say to reasonable Americans, “Hey, I’m no Al Gore, but let me tell you some ways you can help the environment.” Congratulations, Al, on becoming the Michael Moore of environmentalism. How’s that working out?
