Green-minded campaigner Al Gore has been left red-faced after being accused of leaving his car running for almost an hour while he gave a lecture on sustainable development.
His mistake was compounded further by the fact that he had asked his distinguished guests to attend the event by public transport in order to minimize CO2 emissions.
Swedish law prohibits – for environmental reasons - any car engine being left running without its driver for more than 60 seconds.
The fines for breaking that law are severe but it appears Gore has not been fined.
