You've heard it a million times from AGW deniers: "When rich eco-socialists like (gore-Al, Arianna Huffington, Michael Moore, etc., etc.--in the present case, Robert Redford) start to live as if they take AGW seriously, I'll take it seriously too."
But why? If every eco-hypocrite lived like the hermit in Young Frankenstein, it wouldn't change my mind a'tall. So what if they're stupid and/or fervent enough to actually walk the quack? It still wouldn't make CAGW real. Hell, Bed Egley, Jr., lives the eco-aware life, and it hasn't prompted me to do a damn thing (though that bicycle-powered toaster sounds pretty c--oh, who am I kidding).
Gotta like ol' Ed, though. I'd forgotten that Simpsons episode in which he zips away in a go-cart powered by his "own sense of self-satisfaction." (It's also the episode where Bill Clinton invites Marge to meet him in the "toolshed out back" of the White House.)
Ed's looking more and more like his dad, too.
Update: "AGW deniers?" How'd that slip past the editorial layers here?
