If he didn't pose such a risk to others, this would have been funny !

    He was doing over 100mph so he'd have no problem outrunning Joe's Porsche :lol:

    The problem was that he was doing it over 3 lanes of highway :shock:

    Would you buy a used Prius from this man?!

    On second glance at this pic I thought ... 'does he remind you of anyone?'
    The hand gesture, the 'committed' look in the eye? The only thing that's missing is the Chaplin 'tache and the fringe.

    I've got to say that superficially, the story reads very bad for Al Gore and very good for Toyota (who would think that a Prius could do over100mph :wink: )

    I've no idea if it was just political spin, but in his film, Al Gore did come across as a person with a genuine concern for the environment.
    I'd say that his lobbying for the 'green way' must cost an absolute packet, so it makes me wonder how his backers (businessmen) can justify putting the money behind him with little chance of return so he can do the world tour thing.

    LLB, I would be surprised if it was spin to any great extent - I have a book written by Gore around 17 years ago that was looking at climate change, so it's nothing new from him.
