On Monday night, former Vice President and presidential candidate Al Gore explained to a crowd at the Clinton Presidential Library that corporate money in politics explained politicians’ reluctance to pass far-ranging climate change legislation. He failed to explain how accepting $100 million to sell his left-wing “green” propaganda network Current TV to one of the world’s leading oil-producing countries factored into the equation.
Gore stated that Al Jazeera, the purchaser of Current TV, had a wonderful record on climate change; he neglected to mention that Al Jazeera has an interest in the United States regulating its traditional energy production to keep citizens dependent on foreign oil.
He also added that the United States had to deal with income inequality. He did not offer to sign over his Current TV proceeds to a charity of his choosing.
