Former Vice President and eco-warrior Al Gore unveiled his newest plan to save Earth from climate change.Light your farts.

"It's simple" he said today at a climate conference. "Methane is a greenhouse gas and is killing our planet. I have invented a simple device that burns the methane and uses it to produce energy that can power a laptop or a cellphone."

Mr. Gore then revealed the new device, a metal tube about twelve inches long with a small turbine attached to one end.

After dropping his pants and inserting the device, he then plugged a cellphone charger into the device and then connected it to his IPhone. He then scrunched up his face and fired off a window rattler.

The turbine began screaming up in pitch as a four foot blue flame erupted from the end of the device, sending Mr. Gore on a thirty foot flight through the air, ending abruptly as he slammed into a wall.

The next day, at a press conference from the hospital Mr. Gore said "O.K., maybe the technology needs a little work, but this needs to be implemented worldwide immediately. We have to save the environment."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
