How Many Carbon Offsets Does $28,000 Buy?

Holy bananas. Al Gore is hosting a big fundraiser tomorrow night in New York for the Democratic party and the price of admission is $28,000. The event is expected to bring Clinton and Obama backers together even as the debate between the two candidates over seating the delegates from Michigan and Florida rages on -- how surreal it will be to have fundraiser attendees discussing disenfranchised voters in Michigan and Florida having just written a check equal to what many families in those states earn in a year.
