Insensitive Goracle Offends Humane Society

I guess now that Live Earth was a total bomb, the Goracle can go back to his usual slothful ways, wrecking the environment, consuming colossal amounts of energy in his mansions, jetting around the globe and now consuming endangered species.

The inconvenient truths just keep mounting.

Gore's message loses bite
ONLY one week after Live Earth, Al Gore's green credentials slipped while hosting his daughter's wedding in Beverly Hills.

Gore and his guests at the weekend ceremony dined on Chilean sea bass - arguably one of the world's most threatened fish species.

Also known as Patagonian toothfish, the species is under pressure from illegal, unregulated and unreported fishing activities in the Southern Ocean, jeopardising the sustainability of remaining stocks.

The species is currently managed by the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Living Marine Resources, the body which introduced a catch and trade documentation scheme as an attempt to tackle illegal poaching of this species.

Working with non-government organisations, the Humane Society International's focus is now on pursuit of illegal fishing operators who, in the rush to cash in on the highly valued species, plunder stocks with no regard for sustainability.
For shame, fatboy, for shame.

C'mon, lecture me some more on how to live my life.
