Al Gore's Oil interests threatened
Former U.S. vice-president Al Gore has accused the oil industry of financially backing the Tories and their "ultra-conservative leader" to protect its stake in Alberta's lucrative oilsands.
Gore warned that Harper wants to remove Canada from the Kyoto accord, which the United States signed under former president Bill Clinton, but has refused to ratify under President George W. Bush.
The treaty was laughed out of congress during Clinton's reign, and 'ol Bill only signed onto it as a favor for his whiney veep.
The real reason Gore is making these charges against conservatives is because it is threat to his own oil interests with Occidental Petroleum, of which Gore is a major share owner. Source article
Most fascinating is the historical connection between the Gore family and Occidental Petroleum, in which Gore holds about a quarter of a million dollars worth of stock in trust for his mother. The connection goes back to Gore’s father’s close relationship with the late Armand Hammer, Occidental’s founder and the son of Julius Hammer, the man who founded the U.S. Communist Party. For all of his life, Armand Hammer remained close to the murderous Joseph Stalin, his successors and the entire Soviet leadership during the Cold War.
(Former) Vice President Al Gore has a long-time relationship with Occidental Petroleum that has been enormously beneficial to the company. Occidental's late chairman, the controversial Armand Hammer, liked to say that he had Gore's father, Senator Albert Gore, Senior, quote, "in my back pocket", unquote. When the elder Gore left the Senate in 1970, Hammer hired him for $500,000 a year. Personally and professionally the vice president has profited from Occidental largess. To this day he still draws $20,000 a year from a land deal in Tennessee brokered between his father and Hammer. The total amount is more than $300,000.
So now we know why Gore is making these shrill accusations. It isn't about the environment at all, that's only his cover, it's really about his oil company interests getting heavy competition from Canada, which of course will hurt his bottom line, which is all he really cares about.
Despite his public reputation as a staunch environmentalist, Gore recommended that the president approve giving oil companies access to this publicly owned land. It is land that the U.S. Navy has held as emergency reserves since 1912. In October, 1997, the Energy Department announced that the government would sell 47,000 acres of the Elk Hills reserve to Occidental. Source article
The Real Al Gore on the Environment
Gore is typical of the liberals who profess one thing and do another. Doing the opposite while accusing your opponents of what you are guilty of, is the game plan of democrats. The problem they have is that we've seen this game played for years but had little recourse to stop them. All that has changed now with the new media replacing the old liberal media, allowing the truth to come out and exposing the massive hypocrisy and deceptions of the left against the American people.
