Al Gore loves the environment. He made a documentary about saving it, and frequently gives speeches about it. So after allegedly leaving his car idling for 60 minutes while speaking at the Gothenburg Award for Sustainable Development in Sweden on October 10, it‘s not surprising that some are wondering if Gore’s suggestions on reducing emissions apply to everyone but him.

According to Einar Du Rietz on the website Climatedepot.com, Gore ignored requests from the speech’s organizers to use public transportation to go to the event — a request meant to help minimize CO2 emissions — and rented a car for the speech.
