Gore Takes Big Oil Cash From Anti-Semitic Al Jazeera

Hypocrisy: Arab oil-financed, anti-Semitic broadcaster Al-Jazeera has bought Current TV, global-warming crusader Al Gore’s failed news channel. How will Gore spend his estimated $100 million in oil-tainted cash?

The effects of large quantities of crude oil on the brain may not yet have been determined by medical research, but when a Mideast media outfit swimming in government-provided oil profits pays $500 million for access to 50,000 U.S. viewers you have to wonder.

That’s what the New York Times estimates Al-Jazeera paid for Current TV, which means its founder Al Gore getting about a fifth of that sum.

Al-Jazeera is literally bought and paid for by the monarchy of the oil-and-gas-rich Mideast nation of Qatar.

The latest proof of that came a few months ago when its coverage of the United Nations’ Syria debate ridiculously led off with a no-news speech by Qatar’s irrelevant UN emir, thanks to a last-minute move by Al Jazeera’s Qatar-based news director. (more…)

Climate Depot Statement on AlGorjeera‘Gore’s massive personal cash influx from oil-backed Al Jazeera makes him by far the most lavishly funded fossil fuel player in the global warming debate today. Will the media now accurately label Gore an industry funded activist every time they report on him?’

Al Gore Sells Out to Big Oil & Gas: ‘Al-Jazeera received its initial funding through a decree from Emir of Qatar, & Qatar, gets its wealth from its vast oil & natural gas reserves’

AlGorjeera: Gore Takes $100 Million Of Big Oil: Gore ‘takes $100 million in cash from Big Oil (after making a lucrative living by claiming that it’s destroying the planet)’

Flashback: Who Owns These Two Houses?

Original posting date:  04/28/2009

Neither you nor I will ever be able to own a house like either of these.

However, it does provide us with a startling example of environmental friendliness that may raise your eyebrows.

Keep in mind, the average size for a family home in the U.S. is around 2300 square feet.

This image shows a 20 room mansion (not including 8 bathrooms) heated by natural gas. Add on a pool (and a pool house) and a separate guest house, all heated by gas. In one month, this residence consumes more energy than the average American household does in a year. The average bill for electricity and natural gas runs over $2400 per month. In natural gas alone, this property consumes more than 20 times the national average for an American home. This house is not situated in a Northern or Midwestern ‘snow belt’ area. It’s in the South.

‘Local legislation prohibits any car engine running for more than 60 seconds’ — But Gore Not Fined

By Einar Du Rietz

Al Gore — He did it again.

Recently, Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore toured again. Or maybe he does that all the time. This time, he turned up in Gothenburg (Sweden) for the usual alarmist talk. In advance, all distinguished guests were politely advised to – if possible – use any form of public transportation to go to the event, in order to minimize CO2 emissions.

Intriguingly, the Master of World Climate himself arrived in a rental car (with or without driver is unclear), from the airport, and subsequently left the engine running for the entire lecture. That is to say, about one hour. Incidentally, local legislation prohibits – for very good environmental reasons, i e pollution – any car engine running on empty for more than 60 seconds. Fines are severe. As far as I know, he was not fined. (more…)

“Green planet advocates” should be arguing for more CO2

17 Sep 10 – “Those who call themselves “Green planet advocates” should be arguing for a CO2- fertilized atmosphere, not a CO2-starved atmosphere,” says Rutan.  ”Just do a bit of research and you will find that diversity increases when the planet was warm AND had high CO2 atmospheric content.”

“You will also find that we almost had a planet catastrophe when the atmospheric CO2 went down to its low of 180 parts per million.  Below 150 ppm, plants die and then we animals die.  A more ideal atmosphere for a green planet (4 or 5 times the current CO2) is what we had when the dinosaurs roamed a planet that was nearly all green, pole to pole.” (more…)

Sometimes a mansion in Tennessee just isn’t enough. When you’re busy jetting around the world saving humanity from the terrors of global warming, you really need a west coast getaway. So global warming hypocrite Al Gore has now purchased a little place in California.

Oh, wait. Did we say “little place”? Not exactly. It’s a huge friggin’ estate overlooking the Pacific ocean in toney Montecito, California. (more…)

Stunning Pictures of Al Gore’s New $9 Million Mansion Media Totally Ignored

Nobel Laureate Al Gore purchased a $9 million mansion in the luxurious hills of Montecito, California, recently, and with the exception of the Los Angeles Times and Fox News, America’s media couldn’t care less.

You think it might be because the Gore-loving press wouldn’t want people to consider the possibility that all of his global warming hysteria was really about lining his wallet and not saving the planet? (more…)
