And then there is super duper mega-ironic awesome. Like this fer instance…
The Los Angeles-area Carson-Gore Academy of Environmental Sciences, named after Gore and pioneering environmentalist Rachel Carson , was built atop an environmentally contaminated piece of real estate, the Los Angeles Times reports. Some are now raising concerns that the $75.5 million school — which sits across the street from an oil well — may pose long-term health risks to its students, faculty and staff, as the groundwater beneath it is contaminated by chemicals.
Thank you, God. Thank you. Because the only thing better than the delicious irony of Al Gore using more energy in his house than most third world countries is the uberdelicious irony of the school named after him and established in the name of Environmental Sciences being located on a toxic waste site.
