Spend your pounds elsewhere

The United Kingdom has hired Al Gore to sell the environment thing to us American rubes. Which is funny, because he’s been selling that story to us for years, for free.

And, while it’s cute that Britain is trying to impose their ideas on us, their choice of messenger is actually a little odd: short of the far left, who are likely to have already swallowed the whole ‘the world is ending and it’s all your fault’ scenario peddled by Gore, the rest of Americans are unlikely to pay him much mind. This is the guy who lost election from the incumbent party, in peacetime with a good economy–we don’t exactly hang on his every word.
