He can do what he wants, just don't stand on a pulpit and preach the opposite. That's the definition of a hypocrite.

Gore also pleaded with Americans to take responsibility for greenhouse gasses while establishing the Chicago Carbon Exchange, which would essentially act as the NYSE if carbon credits had come to fruition. The guy is just a businessman taking advantage of his political powers and playing at the heartstrings of dumb americans to support legislation that will line his pockets,.

Gore is a great example of good intentions but terrible delivery. He's too over the top for me.

What's hypocritical about his sale of Current?

simsima325 01-10-2013 10:39 AM

Al Jazeera backed by group of oil magnates in middle east. Who profit off of hurting environment. So its a bit hypocritical.

simsima325 01-10-2013 10:47 AM

Maybe it's hypocritical because when current was approached by mercury as a buyer, they were told that gore wanted the legacy of his network to align with his own values. Apparently his values align with a government whose primary source of funds is oil and natural gas. Not to mention he sold it to a network that bin laden used anytime he needed to get a message out.

Did anyone in here mention political affiliation or their hate towards capitalism?

Bingo.

Additionally, calling him a hypocrite doesn't mean he shouldn't be allowed to sell it to whomever he choses. Calling him out on BS as noted above is not in poor taste.

Lair 01-10-2013 02:05 PM

That's the kind of BS you say to people you don't want to alienate, but who don't have enough money to buy your shlt.

Capitalists gonna capitalize.

Gore was always a bit over the top. I blame Tennessee.
