As a conservative might expect, an Al Gore-fest is bound to have plenty of wacky quotes, and this one certainly didn't disappoint.
"Today, more than 2 billion of us have come together in more than 130 countries on all seven continents," said former Vice President Al Gore, the event's organizer. "Times like these demand action," he added, after announcing the 7-Point Pledge that he hoped millions would sign while watching the concert.
Gather 'round kids and promise to make your carbon footprint teeny-tiny like Al Gore's! Hey Johnny, can use less than $30,000 worth of electricity and natural gas? Sure you can!
(...) it was nonmusicians at this concert who made the most passionate pleas about demanding action for the environment. "Get rid of all these rotten politicians that we have in Washington, who are nothing more than corporate toadies," said Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the environmentalist author, president of Waterkeeper Alliance and Robert F. Kennedy's son, who grew hoarse from shouting. "This is treason. And we need to start treating them as traitors."
Another liberal who doesn't understand the meaning of treason, great. Traitors are traditionally executed by the way.
Primatologist Jane Goodall offered a greeting in chimpanzee language, before saying, "Up in the North the ice is melting, what will it take to melt the ice in the human heart?"
ROTFLMAO! I don't know but she sure knows how to tickle my ribs, more chimpspeak for global warming! OK rock stars, don't forget to put an ecofriendly bumpersticker on the back of your Limo entouarage.
