“Gore: Ate Bass, Looks Like an Ass” proclaims scienceblogs. “Take a Pass on Chilean Sea Bass” runs the pledge at the National Environmental Trust. They’re “vanishing” said a worried Tom Brokaw more than a year ago.
Hey. Nothing’s too endangered for daddy’s little girl.
Only a week after Live Earth, eco-warrior Al Gore didn’t do much for his green credentials when he shocked fellow environmentalists by serving up an endangered fish at his daughter’s wedding rehearsal dinner.
The former US vicepresident provided 75 guests with Chilean sea bass – one of the world’s most threatened fish species…
The gaffe will have been even more embarrassing for the Gores because they tried to make the wedding between Sarah Gore and businessman Bill Lee – who met at a function for An Inconvenient Truth – as green as possible.
My feeling is, let he who has not feasted upon the scrumptious carcass of the toothfish cast the first stone. Besides, an environmentally savvy gent like him must have known the deal; I’m sure he purchased sea bass offsets beforehand. Maybe they were one of the wedding favors.
