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!)
Beware of Snake Oil salesmen
A drive to privatize some government lands during the mid-1990s succeeded in 1997 with the sale of the reserve to Occidental Petroleum, the highest bidder. Occidental took over operations in early 1998 and has been the principal operator since then; in 2008 they had a 78% interest in the oil field. Current reserves are claimed to be either 106,554,000 barrels of oil (according to the California Department of Conservation) or 484,000,000 barrels of oil equivalent, according to Occidental Petroleum.
For example, in the Democratic Party, Vice President Al Gore has a long-time relationship with Occidental Petroleum that has been enormously beneficial to the company. Occidental’s late chairman, the controversial Armand Hammer, liked to say that he had Gore’s father, Senator Albert Gore, Senior, quote, “in my back pocket”, unquote. When the elder Gore left the Senate in 1970, Hammer hired him for $500,000 a year. Personally and professionally the vice president has profited from Occidental largess. To this day he still draws $20,000 a year from a land deal in Tennessee brokered between his father and Hammer.
How does a FALL in the average temperatures reflect a negative in the sustainability of life?
At lower temperatures MORE CO2 is absorbed and held in the surface waters of the world, supplying more of the plant food that aquatic plants need to thrive and produce oxygen, which in turn makes a more hospitable environment for the sea life. Oxygen dissolved in water soon reaches its saturation point, and escapes to the atmosphere at large, where it is available to the majority of the rest of living things on the planet. I am not sure how it would be calculated, but in all likelihood, the surface of the seas probably give up MORE oxygen to the atmosphere than all the rain forests and savannahs put together.
If only because so much of the surface of the planet is covered with water of varying degrees of salinity.
Al Gore is entirely devoid of any kind of critical thinking.
Al Gore = crazy man.
Did that massage therapist use ethical oil?
Algore is such a bitter clinger. Clinging to copies of “An Inconvenient Truth”. Lighten up Al. Go home and spend more time with your money.
Nor was it unethical for him to take a hundred million petrodollars for his low-rated cable network.
My GOD, what liberal hypocrisy!!! Didn’t an oil nation just PURCHASE Algore for hundreds of millions of dollars and turn him into a mega millionaire?
“Gore defines the low IQ point of sustainable life.”
Well, 95% of the political left places on the left side of the Bell Curve. The other 5% of the left is made up of the greedy leaders in charge of the low information voters.
Call him “no controlling legal authority” Al.
There is no such thing as an ethical DemonRat...algore is just one of the more glaring examples of this truth.
So God, will take this statement "No such thing as ethical oil" and judge him by it.
When can we expect Al to to return the Armand Hammer oil money that he’s lived on his entire life?
In 2006, the Gore TN mansion devoured 221,000 kWh of electricity (20 X the national average) and nothing has changed since then. Way to practice what you preach, Al.
This POS doesn’t know the meaning of ethical.
I totally trust AlGore to know what “not ethical” is.
....and there is no such thing as an ethical Al Gore...
He never heard that from his Pappy Gore who wae in Armand Hammer’s pocket with Occidental Petroleum
Of course Al gave back all that unethical family money, right??
Yeah Al, it was real ethical to sell your media company to the propaganda arm of our main combatants. If it was up to me, algore would be in prison for life for treason.
Except for the oil belonging to that Arab royal family he sold his network to.
Find a picture with an adult skull. And a male pelvis.
I didn’t make the graphic. It is what it is. ;-)
When I need instructions on what is ethical and what isn’t, Gore doesn’t spring to mind as someone to go to.
Way too obviously an illustration of birth at the moment of crowning.
If it were a case of cranio-rectal inversion, the politician would have had to enter his rectum through his navel to be facing that way.
We need another illustration.
You’re free to search for one. Let me know what you find. I’ll use it.
apparently he has no qualms abotu burnign through tons of unethical oil hismelf
What about the oil he made his first million from? More proof it is a religion and not a science.
Pray for America to Wake Up
