Costco embraces Al Gore, not a pretty sight

Former Vice President Al Gore is on the cover of November's The Costco Connection, the "lifestyle magazine for Costco members." It's hard to figure who looks worse in this odd coupling--the global-warming guru or the supersize warehouse store, which would not be a retail powerhouse were it not for the family minivan.

In the issue's cover story--timed to coincide with Costco's release of Gore's new book, Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis--Gore argues that the "one solution" to the "climate crisis" also provides the "most important solutions for the other two crises" facing America, the economic crisis and the security crisis. Forget his 2006 movie, An Inconvenient Truth. Meet Costco Gore, deliverer of The Convenient Truth.
