Melbourne, Oct 29 (ANI): Climate change warrior Al Gore has invited controversy after reportedly leaving his car idling for an hour during an environment lecture in Sweden.

A blogger revealed the Nobel Peace Prize winner arrived for the Gothenburg speech in a rental car (with or without driver is unclear), from the airport, and subsequently left the engine running for the entire lecture, reports the Daily Telegraph.

On the other hand, all distinguished guests were advised to, if possible, use any form of public transportation to go to the event, in order to minimize CO2 emissions.

However, local legislation prohibits any car engine running on empty for more than 60 seconds. (ANI)
