    Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore has said he made a mistake promoting first generation corn ethanol during his presidential campaign in 2000.

    Gore says he was more concerned with garnering votes from farmers in Tennessee and Iowa than with what was best for the environment.* A clean energy enthusiast, Gore says corn ethanol is not a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels.* The process of converting corn into ethanol is highly energy intensive and also requires using a food crop for fuel."

    Their true colors are showing.

    This quote by a member of the IPCC says it all.

    IPCC Official: “Climate Policy Is Redistributing The World's Wealth”
    Thursday, 18 November 2010 13:16 Neue Zürcher Zeitung


    Climate policy has almost nothing to do anymore with environmental protection, says the German economist and IPCC official Ottmar Edenhofer. The next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which the distribution of the world's resources will be negotiated.

    Neue Zürcher Zeitung, 14 November 2010

    Interview: Bernard Potter


    And here it is in a nutshell.

    First of all, developed countries have basically expropriated the atmosphere of the world community.

    But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.

    Obviously, the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this.

    One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy.

    This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole.


    I really hate these bastards.

    How much has Gore made since leaving office, over 200 million, over 300 million, maybe more.

    Of course Gore sold the strategic oil reserves to his families oil company so this is nothing new.

    Libels profiting and using the office of politics to pass laws and regulations to make themselves rich.

    Gore has provably made slightly over 100 million bucks on "clean energy programs" mandated by laws implemented through his political pressure. He has made his millions by stealing it from the poor and disenfranchised. Just like the robber barons of old who the left despises.

    His promotion of corn ethanol was purely political.

    He says so right in the article that he did so to garner votes.

    My post with the link to the interview with the economist from the IPCC proves undoubtedly that this is a political and economic issue.

    Climate policy has been formed to redistribute wealth. If that isn't political I sure as hell don't know what else is.

    Quite true, it wasn't political, it was about him getting elected president. Now it is about him making money. It is not political, it is personal.
