Anything to protect the cult. If you aren’t familiar with exactly what Gore did, he sold his failure of a TV station, Current TV, to Al Jazeera, partly owned by the royal family of Qatar, and the primary export from that nation is oil. Qatar also has the 3rd highest “carbon footprint” of any nation
As he makes the interview circuit for his latest book, Gore has been posed tough questions on the deal from the likes of Jon Stewart and the “Today” show’s Matt Lauer, and to all he has given essentially the same answer: Yeah, I understand it looks bad, but hey, Al Jazeera has covered the climate change issue better than any other channel.
It’s a pretty lame explanation, not only because it doesn’t really address the fact that Gore sold out to a huge oil interest but because it makes some unwarranted assumptions. If the world ever does become serious about a severe crackdown on oil use, Al Jazeera’s Qatari owners might decide to add a little spin to the channel’s climate coverage, or tone it down.
If if’s and buts were candies and nuts we’d all have a wonderful Christmas.
I’m not bothered by the sale of Current TV to Al Jazeera because I think the latter channel will provide some perspective on world news that’s currently lacking. As for Gore’s crude-soaked cash, it’s a minor, if disappointing, distraction.
Uh huh. Doesn’t matter than most of what Gore does is clima-hypocricy, from his constant fossil fueled travel, including private jets, SUVs, and limos, to living in mega-mansions with huge “carbon footprints”, which use tons of water. Most Warmists will cover for Gore.
