Ann Coulter along with environmental whackivists Daryl Hannah and Jon Coifman appeared on Hannity & Colmes last night to discuss Algore’s enormous energy bill.

Coulter laid out Gore in this gem:

Coulter: “I kind of respect him more, it shows he is not stupid enough to believe all this global warming nonsense. He’s trying to get us to believe. Okay, fine, he may be a hypocrite but at least he’s not a moron.”

Al Gore’s office sent a response to “Think” Progress using the same rhetoric they used last time:

1) Gore’s family has taken numerous steps to reduce the carbon footprint of their private residence, including signing up for 100 percent green power through Green Power Switch, installing solar panels, and using compact fluorescent bulbs and other energy saving technology.

2) Gore has had a consistent position of purchasing carbon offsets to offset the family’s carbon footprint — a concept the right-wing fails to understand. Gore’s office explains:

What Mr. Gore has asked is that every family calculate their carbon footprint and try to reduce it as much as possible. Once they have done so, he then advocates that they purchase offsets, as the Gore’s do, to bring their footprint down to zero.

These people obviously don’t get the point — or refuse to acknowledge it. The problem isn’t so much as Gore’s consumption of energy, but that he asks us common folk to live a modest lifestyle while he’s living it up. Hypocrite indeed.

Like Hannity said, these “carbon offsets” are nothing but a farce. These “carbon offsets” are nothing more than indulgences in the Church of Liberalism.

Update (AP): “If we’re looking at gondolas floating down Wall Street in 20 years, what good does it do to plant some trees?”
