Thank you, Al Gore. It’s ironic that, in Gore’s world, burning fossil fuels causes hotter summers and colder winters.
After all, fossil fuels are the source for the real fur industry’s
greatest competition: synthetic clothing products. Just a few decades
ago, DuPont said we’d have “better living through chemistry” and The Graduate was advised to look to a future in plastics!
We were all told these
“miracle” man-made fibers would make seal skin coats obsolete, that we’d
all happily turn in our chinchilla-trimmed hats for a little something
in “synchilla”. We’d abandon sheepskin for “eco-fleece” and give up
silky soft mink for “faux fur”!
So it is ironic that, per Al
Gore, fossil fuel pollution has created this frigid winter season which
is, in turn, delivering absolutely tremendous prices during the 2010 real fur pelt auction season.
maybe it’s just that people are getting the message that fossil
fuel-based products never biodegrade and that natural fibers, as they
have always been, are the best choice and do the best job, hands down,
at keeping you comfortable on a chilly day!
Whatever it is, we just want to say, thank you, thank you, thank you, Al Gore!
