Is Global Warming a Ruse for Creeping Communism? Chairman Gore Pontificates on Income Inequality

Original post made by Our Freedom Is at Stake, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Feb 19, 2013



LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Former Vice President Al Gore says the American media and outsize effect of corporate money in politics are partially to blame for inaction on global climate change.

In wide-ranging remarks during an appearance Monday evening at the Clinton Presidential Library, Gore said journalists should have done a better job questioning the 2012 presidential candidates about climate change. He then railed against what he called the corrupting influence of money in politics.

Gore also defended the recent sale of his television network, Current TV, to Al-Jazeera. He said the Qatar government-owned network had a better track record of climate change reporting than some of its U.S.-based counterparts.

Outlining his new book, "The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change," Gore said the U.S. is uniquely suited to continue leading the world but needs to address, among other things, rising income inequality.

No, he did not then go on to address the virtues of Communist China, but we get the sense he would have had he more time.
