And here I thought Al Gore was the champion hypocrite

The Anchoress hits one out of the park with this post on how much energy the average music star must use in watts consumed during concerts, exhaust from the 18-wheelers that transport it, and petroleum consumed to make CDs, tee shirts, and other concert-related paraphernalia.

She also links to this article that shows that Hollywood's TV- and movie-making spew more pollutants than "aerospace manufacturing, apparel, hotels, and semiconductor manufacturing" (individually).

Proposed by the Anchoress: that they give up a summer's worth of tours. For the planet, after all. And in return she'll learn to live without them.

Hey, I can get behind that.
