PITTSBURGH -- During Friday night's screening of Not Evil Just Wrong at the RightOnline conference here, the audience made one thing clear: They hate the hypocrisy of environmental extremism.
The sections of the film that triggered the most applause focused on Al Gore's penchant for burning fossil fuels to fly around the world on a private jet while telling the rest of the world they shouldn't fly coach to visit their family and friends.
Two scenes that roused the crowd featured women at an airport scoffing at Gore's hypocrisy:
The audience also cheered when Greenpeace founding member Patrick Moore decried the favorite line of environmentalists -- that there are too many people in the world. "I'm going like, 'Why don't you volunteer first then,' Moore says in the film. "Right? What a crazy thing to say. That is not exactly a constructive approach."
It's an approach that people should condemn and reject.
But they shouldn't reject flying or stop using fossil fuels, even if Al Gore and his allies in global warming alarmism decide to start practicing what they preach. As Phelim said last week at the National Conservative Student Conference: "I really, really, really want to see the day when everybody in Africa and London has Al Gore's electricity bill," Phelim added. "It will mean the end of poverty."
