There’s nothing like somebody who has an airline getting in on the lecture about reducing the world’s fossil fuel consumption, especially when he joins up with the eco-hero who has cashed in on Big Oil money:

Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project released a video last month which features, among many people, Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin Atlantic, which operates a fleet of around 40 wide-bodied aircraft.

How they can lecture others about that with straight faces is simply amazing.

Branson is also involved in developing a space tourism industry, and those rockets don’t run on 9-volt batteries and solar power.
