Miley CyrusWell, that’s one way to celebrate Earth Day, show off your green bra.

Never-mind you’re only 15 years of age.

Wonder what ever happened to the days of a philosophy of keeping her good Christian head on her shoulders? She must have cast that aside about the same time her panty pics made the interwebs.

The GoracleIn an exclusive interview with the British newspaper The Sun, Al Gore finally revealed what many had long been hoping for: a proper sequel to his game-changing 2006 documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth.”

Lamenting that relatively little – aside from a more receptive public mindset – had changed since the release of his first film, Gore said that only concerted action from the world community could now prevent the worst excesses of global warming.

So The Goracle wants a “proper” sequel.

Don’t we all.

One that corrects the bald-faced lies of the first one.

I won’t hold me breath waiting for that to happen.

But I will fire up the 8 mpg Mitsu Pajero and let it run at idle in the driveway for a couple hours just for the hell of it.

UPDATE: And I forgot to add phony Antarctic ice shelves.

UPDATE II: I guess The Goracle has been caught in another of a long line of lies. A spokeswoman for Paramount, the production company behind Al Gore’s *cough* Oscar-winning *cough* 2006 film said that no movie sequel is in the works. “There are no plans for a sequel,” Lehrer said. “That is the official word.”

Chevy MalibuIn “honor” of Earth Day I give you an example of what it has wrought on the general public.

The (mild) hybrid Chevrolet Malibu pictured left.

Handsome little devil isn’t it? Although it being Earth Day Eve and all I’d much prefer something in an “Earthy Tan,” or “Climate Change Chartreuse,” but I can work with what’s given to me.

There’s one slight problem, it’s a piece of shit thought up by someone who’s overdosed on the Kool-Aid “dr.” Albert Gore is selling.

Seems this little “gem” is only a “mild” hybrid, as GM calls it, for the simple fact it’s designed so it’s pathetic little four-cylinder combustion chambers shut down when the car is stopped.

Not stopped as in say, at the local Quicky-Mart to purchase the latest issue of “Save the Planet NOW” and “Rednecks in an Ecco-Friendly World.’

Stopped as in each and every time it stops in bumper-to-bumper traffic on the interstate heading to Barstow. So you lurch forward a few feet, stop, and the engine shuts down like your wife after seven years of marriage. (you 7 year guys get it doncha?)

Traffic moves, and as if by “magic” this little marvel to modern ecco-friendly ingenuity “promptly restarts the engine when the brake is released.”

So as not to be confused lets recap. Stop, engine shuts down. Traffic moves, brake is released and engine re-fires and you lurch forward all of 35 feet and stop. Engine shuts down. Again.

Wash, rinse and repeat… for the next 25 miles of stop-and-go traffic. (wonder if it has a fission powered starter motor to withstand this abuse for 100,000 miles!?)

And all this for a gain of exactly 2MPG at an extra cost of $1,800 over a non-hybrid four-cylinder Malibu.

The marketing jackhole that forced this piece of shit into the showrooms should be relegated to Dantes Seventh Level of Hell.

And BTW, have a happy earth day (lower case intentional)
