Is Al Gore walking the talk?

The Guardian reviews the resulting “storm” from the story, released after the Oscar win for ‘s movie , that his household energy consumption is 20 times the national US average – that is around $30,000 a year.

What’s interesting for public relations practitioners here is all the rhetoric – and attempts to denounce the positions of those “on the other side”. 

I happen to think it is important to walk the talk, and the louder you talk, the more you’d better walk it.  Otherwise, you cannot be surprised when people question why they should listen to you.
