Global warming guru Al Gore blew through Toronto recently on a promotional tour for An Inconvenient Sequel, the follow up to his 2006 Academy Award winning film, An Inconvenient Truth. The sequel is scheduled for general release in August, and Gore had high praise for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau — who briefly appears with Gore in the new film — as a key player in negotiating the 2015 Paris climate treaty. The Nobel Peace Prize winner also took a mild shot at Trudeau, expressing disappointment he supports oil and gas pipelines.
Never mind that the purpose of those pipelines is to transport Canada’s oil and natural gas resources to market, fossil fuels which supply the energy Gore relies on to keep his never-ending global, jet-setting environmental crusade airborne. This as he travels the world in the lap of luxury urging the rest of us to tighten our belts to save the planet. Fact is, the world really would be in imminent, existential danger from global warming if everyone consumed as much fossil fuel energy as Gore does.
The failed U.S. presidential candidate completely jumped the shark in 2013 when he sold his struggling liberal cable network , Current TV, to Al Jazeera for $500 million, with a reported payday of up to $100 million for himself. Al Jazeera is owned by the oil and gas emirate of Qatar, an Arab dictatorship currently denying allegations from surrounding Arab dictatorships that it funds Islamic terrorism.
Gore’s hypocrisy in selling Current TV to Mideast oil and gas interests, given his crusade against fossil fuels, can only be described as breathtaking.
Typical ( ex ) politician !!! …
