Al Gore still flying all over the place, scolding people for using oil

Font Size:

He’s still going on and on about it. And why shouldn’t he? It makes his pockets fatter. As well as everything else about him.

The Globe and Mail:

Declaring that “American democracy has been hacked,” former U.S. vice-president Al Gore told a Toronto audience that his countrymen needed to wake up to the special interests that have a grip on the levers of power in the U.S. Congress and are able to block legislation on a range of policy issues including his signature cause, global climate change…

In a public interview with The Globe and Mail’s editor-in-chief, John Stackhouse, Mr. Gore also spoke of his wish that U.S. president Barack Obama would cancel the Keystone XL pipeline intended to transport heavy crude from the Alberta oil sands to U.S. refineries…

When Mr. Stackhouse asked whether Alberta oil was more ethical because it came from a democratic nation with a commitment to human rights, Mr. Gore rejected the term.

“There’s no such thing as ethical oil,” he said. “There’s only dirty oil and dirtier oil.” The remark triggered applause from a nearly full house at the Globe-sponsored event at a Ryerson University auditorium.

Well, of course it did.

Hey, Al, did you walk to Toronto? Did you ride a bicycle? Because it doesn’t look like you do either of those things very often. No, you used dirty, dirty, unethical oil. Because you’re greedy.

Hat tip to the fine folks at the Washington Free Beacon, who remind us that Al just pocketed $70 million from a bunch of oil billionaires for his stupid TV channel. All the better to widen his carbon footprint as he tells the rest of us peons how to live.

All the money and all the food in the world won’t make you President of the United States, Al. Ever.
