What's the problem with burning wood, it's better than burning oil.

the only thing green here is Al's pockets in his sale to Aljazeeera...Current was a great channel to bad.
12:21 PM on 01/27/2013
Current was down to around 70,000 views in prime time the last time I looked, as I remember. The fact is progressives aren't the kind of people who enjoy sitting around listening to the preachers preaching to the choir. Air America is another example of that kind of failure. It's more the right wing thing to present yourself before the likes of Rush, Glen or the FOX to be filled like empty vessels. Al Jazzera has a very fine network that is more interesting and insightful and can carry the kind of program that I find enjoyable.

NO..don't want to hear word one. Gore sold out Current-TV to oil !! Makes pretty rotten sense. Al, you sold out the left big time & sold out to oil for $!00 million. You're no longer relevant -all credibility is now done.

Unfortunately, the Northern Tier of the United States will NEVER be suitable for solar energy, ...as all the private solar investment in the Deep SoCalifornia clearly proves.

No it does not. Your comment is not relevant. Who cares if he sold his tv station? really? why does that matter? don't ya think he should have been able to? No one was watching it anyway, less than 70k people.

Aljazeera Gore is a leading driver of climate change himself. Fuelled by a fortune in petro dollars from the sale of current tv, he flies around the world in private jets, uses gas guzzing motorcades for his entourage, owns 5 energy burning mansions and puts out the flatulance of a large cow herd. This man is a walking disaster responsible for at least on hurricane a year. Save the planet NOW! Stop Aljazeera Gore's emissions!

Yes, that's the way you would expect the right wing to argue science. Not by discussing the science but by trying to kill the messenger which makes you believe somehow you’ve dispelled the work of our best and brightest researchers. Because the right, for the most part, doesn't do science the only arrows in your quiver are ad hominem attacks, non sequiturs and factoids. That does not impress anyone who knows something about science!

If Al Gore pulls his lawn mower around with a Sherman Tank or he dives to work in a semi truck or cruises on his personal super tanker, it makes no difference to what the science says. In that respect Al got it right, unlike his detractors.

I thought Al Gore was no longer the Chairman of Current TV since he sold it to Al Jazeera and those oil drilling CO2 producing Arabs in December 2012 to avoid paying additional taxes on the sale in 2013 and profited $100 million. So Al pockets $100 million and gets to keep his job too? Such a deal!

that would be the transition of management and the new owners moving in, not uncommon. deal is done, signed in Dec 2012 to reduce Al's taxes, and delivered.

If they programmed their content at the direction of "big oil" how come they don't do "global warming is a hoax because it snowed in winter" stories a la Fox?

Where is the correlation? You have to draw a straight line from their stakeholders to their content in order to make any claim of hypocrisy...

Please source the links that ALJ is providing propaganda content against the science of global warming since they are supposedly "big oil"...

Thanks!

Al Gore was right then and he ie right now.
Only a selfish sellout lackey of corporate
greed would say anything different and should
know better, In the face of world destrution they
still deny and lie. Like birthers they are a laughing
stock of the world.

Yes, 911, invading and occupying the wrong country, which cost us 2 trillion dollars, 4,000 soldiers, hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, 4 million homeless and displaced, started the longest war in U.S. history and never finishing it, draining our treasury, costing us trillions in debt, and crashing our economy, ruining lives of millions.

Yeah, it's a good thing Bush was selected by the supreme court to be president.
08:01 PM on 01/27/2013
yes all true but you can't relive the future twice and I can't prove how much Al Gore would have sold us down the river for.   Will have to settle for Bush was the greater of two evils.

"What are the drivers of global change?"

I think Algore has made the answer to that question abundantly clear; money. I think I'll write a book about it.

I'm still fuming about how he ceded the presidency to Bush in 2000. Look what's happened since then. Everything else he's done (or hasn't) pales by comparison.

The reason there is no outrage is because Qatar has done much to promote green energy.

I come to you here tonight not to seek your vote for me as your next president but as a fellow traveler on space ship Earth, that we can pilot together to that shining city on a hill....wait, someone else used that line already?...wrong speech, but it matters not for we all must find a spot on our iceberg so that our little baby polar bear friends....oh crap, I gotta work on the speech but I really want to share something that'll get me your vote. And while dealing with matter that would make anyone cry the message I bring will bring a smile along with the tears, so I'm saying it'll take some of the pain out of the job we all must do before we drive down this path any further. For all paths we choose lead to a politician which Al is as painfully clear an example of that the short book reviews by a team of some may say way left of center progressives with a sense of humor to match their brutal honesty. Let this weeks 'wake the cluck up' moment be a learning experience on how to filter the prevaricating tendencies of all the wings of the same bird and arrive at the distilled truth of the matter. With a smile on your face and joy in your heart. Then go vote for ME!

The Western economies can't even figure out how to decouple from the failed financialized model and there isn't any public outcry to do so. When would you expect them to decouple from the fossil fuel economy?
