No such thing as ethical oil, Al Gore tells Toronto audience

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.
Mr. Gore added that he felt action on climate change was possible, indeed inevitable, once it was viewed by enough people as a matter of personal values. When these kind of issues settle into a choice between right and wrong, then the moral clarity that eventually develops makes it possible to move quickly.
In a public interview with The Globe and Mails 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. In part because oil-sands crude requires more energy to extract than conventional sources, and so produces more greenhouse gases per barrel, he suggested that the full social and environmental cost of developing the oil sands made it a more expensive proposition than a faster move by the U.S. to renewable sources.

Another abortion which should have occurred.
Gore defines the low IQ point of sustainable life.
And - as such - was ideal for being a senator ...which is the lowest slime of the lowest level of the lowest sewer in the multiverse.
Ethical & Al Gore do not belong in the same story, let alone headline.
***...including his signature cause, global climate change.***
Really? I thought his ‘signature’ cause was global warming. I know that because his ‘signature’ video says that in “An Inconvenient Truth”.
Ain’t that right Al?
Pronounced “Ethical Al”
I believe that Algore has (had) an oil well on his property in Tennessee, the same property where he dug and hoed his tobacco fields, the same property where he was a slumlord.
What kind of oil did he use to make the trip?
But when that scam artist was earning money from his own oil investments it was not unethical?
Maybe a problem with accent and translation. I think what he really said was “there’s no such thing as ethical al” but it was misheard/mistranscribed.
To think, this retard was within a rats hair to be president.
Gee, Al whats the carbon footprint of your California seaside mansion and I’m sure you took a private jet to Toronto and had a limo meeting you at the airport.
Gore worships Mother Earth and thinks oil is her children, so we should not take her children from her. He thinks its ok to kill babies in the womb (don’t know how he feels about murder after babies born). the guy has given himself over to satan totally.
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creatorwho is forever praised. Amen.
America is not a democracy, Meathead!
No such thing as an ethical democrat.
(I've seen mineral oil, plenty of crude oil, even sunflower oil, but I never squeezed nor drilled an "ethical" for oil. Mebbe he's onto something...NOT!)
