Al Gore has made millions of dollars from the Global Warming Hoax, and that is despite the fact that he is a major hypocrite, with a “carbon footprint” the size of Cleveland. He travels the world in his private planes and gas guzzling limousines, he has a large energy inefficient estate in Tennessee where he lives with his family. But that should be expected as Henry Miller wrote in Forbes, Al Gore must have a personality disorder, specifically Narcissistic Personality Disorder:
He’s a phony–and a shameless one at that. In his op-ed, he refers to “tobacco companies block[ing] constraints on the marketing of cigarettes for four decades after science confirmed the link of cigarettes to diseases of the lung and the heart.” Well, that is true, and it is consistent with his impassioned address in 1996 to the Democratic Party convention, in which he vowed to fight the tobacco industry to his last breath because 12 years earlier his sister had died from lung cancer. But in 1988, while campaigning for the nomination for president, Gore had been telling tobacco farmers (in a Southern accent much thicker than it ever had been in Washington) that he was practically one of them, that he had tenderly held the young plants in his own two hands, that he had their interests at heart and so on. And his movie, An Inconvenient Truth, which offers an exaggerated, one-sided and often inaccurate view of global warming, is more propaganda than documentary.
As a hypocrite Al Gore has finally stepped over the line, because now the environmentalists are angry. Gore has cut a deal with the “Anti-Christ” of polluting firms, Dow Chemical
According to the UK Independent:
Al Gore, the self-styled squeakiest-clean and deepest-green politician in American history, has some explaining to do this weekend. His environmental organisation has taken money to raise awareness about the need for clean water from a controversial chemicals company.
Dow Chemical, the US firm, is sponsoring Life Earth events in 150 cities today. The event aims to raise money for clean water programmes. Research by environmental organisations has found dangerous levels of highly toxic chemicals in rivers, lakes and other water supplies close to several other factories owned by Dow and its subsidiaries in countries including the United States, Brazil and South Africa.
Nice going Al, you cut a deal with one of the biggest polluters in the world, giving it an opportunity to “look green” to environmentally concerned consumers. The only real green the former VP cares about is CA$H.
Dow’s factories at its global headquarters in Midland, Michigan, have been accused of contaminating the region, including the Tittabawassee River floodplains, with high levels of dioxin – one of the “dirty dozen” most dangerous chemicals. In 2007, the highest level of dioxin contamination ever measured by the US Environmental Protection Agency was found in the Michigan Saginaw River. Residents are advised to avoid contact with river sediments and not to eat locally caught fish.
Campaigners are outraged by what they call Dow’s “blatant attempt” to paint itself as a green company and divert attention from the Bhopal scandal, where 25 years after the 1984 disaster at the plant (then owned by Union Carbide) thousands of villagers are still forced to use contaminated water which causes birth defects, cancer and skin disorders.
…Three weeks ago, Amnesty International asked Live Earth to reconsider the sponsorship unless Dow publicly agreed to clean up Bhopal. Live Earth did not respond.
…Dow has branched into water purification technologies in recent years. Campaigners claim the sponsorship deal is part of its wider strategy to exploit business opportunities in water scarcity. Tim Edwards from the International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal said: “This is categorically a green-washing exercise. It is one plank of Dow’s Human Element campaign which started in 2006 to clean up their image by marketing themselves as a sustainable, environmental, caring company and repair the damage caused by scandals such as Bhopal.”
What’s the scoop Mr. Former VP, why are you dancing with corporate wolves? The can only be one answer. Gore who stands to make billions off of the global warming hoax is looking to make a little more.
