    I love this irony. I wrote about at my blog in the essay – The Curmudgeon Report

    We will do anything and everything to maintain our present personal level of energy use and the comfort it affords us. We will do anything and everything to the earth, to other people and even to ourselves to continue on this path. And if we don’t have the energy level we see others have, we will do anything and everything to the earth, to other people and even to ourselves to attain that level. The proof of this assertion is simple; we are doing it.

    It could be hypocrisy. There certainly is a tinge of that. An old tale from the 1970s, a major energy person while flying to an energy conservation conference figures he will use the last drop of gas on the way. Peak oil aficionados and global warming protagonists each flying to and fro to enlighten the world. The humility of self-importance?
