She’s ecological, she’s hypocritical: Laurie David builds tennis court on sensitive wetlands

Walking, talking one-woman ecological disaster Laurie David.

Walking, talking one-woman ecological disaster Laurie David.

When Laurie David’s on the west coast, she lives in huge energy-sucking home high in the hills above Santa Monica. When she’s on the east coast, she lives in Martha’s Vineyard.

Martha’s Vineyard is also where her hypocrisy is current residing.

According to the New York Post, David, the executive producer of Al Gore’s global-warming documentary “An Inconvenient Truth,” was busted and fined $900 by the Chilmark Conservation Commission.

David was cited for violating the Wetlands Protection Act during the construction of a tennis court on her sprawling Chilmark property, when workers installed boards and stones to construct a path to the court.

But David — who spent weeks on the road with Sheryl Crow in 2007 during their Stop Global Warming College Tour — let her contractor, Bart Thorpe, take the fall for the violations. “She’s obviously a very busy person, and she trusted the contractor,” Thorpe told the Gazette. “I inadvertently made a mistake. It’s something she had no knowledge of . . . It’s a minor thing.”

Maybe it wouldn’t be such a major deal on the Vineyard if the supposed eco-obsessed celebrity hadn’t been cited for the exact same violation four years ago. In 2005, David constructed a stone fire pit, a barbecue area and a children’s theater stage in a wetlands area without a permit.

You can’t make this stuff up. If her ex-husband wrote it into a sitcom, you wouldn’t believe it.

Now THERE’S and inconvenient truth.


Hypocrisy with these types of eco-idiots is not new.
