Green hypocrisy as Al Gore Sells Out for Petro-dollars

Just published at Energy Tribune my article spelling out the latest green hypocrisy from Al 'Do-as-I-say-not-as-do' Gore.

Here's a taster:


The fact is, Al Jazeera is funded by the oil-rich Qatari government and has long been considered a tool for the oil-rich monarchy which heavily subsidizes fuel prices. Qatari drivers only pay around $1 per gallon at the pump. Which helps to explain why, as I pointed out in Kyoto: The Last Rites, in the league of the highest per-capita greenhouse gas emitters, Qatar ranks no 1 in the world.

So if you, as a strongly committed green idealist, were reviewing the offer you could only conclude that Al Jazeera would fit the bill for an ‘unfit prospective buyer’. Not so Al Gore. According to the New York Times which first broke the story, Gore and his colleague’s wanted the deal pushed through before January 1, 2013 to avoid being hit with higher taxes. The same higher tax regime that Gore and his Democratic Party backed to ensure the rich would pay their “fair share”. For Gore, personally pocketing $20 million in greenbacks clearly trumps planet-saving hair-shirtism.
