Ethanol 'Fuel" (Al) Gored

Great retraction and insight into what really drives Al Gore's decision-making process.
From The Daily Bayonet:

What Al Gore's ethanol admission really tells us
Al Gore, the man who for decades has proudly bragged of saving ethanol as a renewable fuel for the future has finally admitted he was wrong:
“It is not a good policy to have these massive subsidies for first-generation ethanol,” Reuters quoted Gore saying of the U.S. policy that is about to come up for congressional review. “First-generation ethanol I think was a mistake. The energy conversion ratios are at best very small.

One of the reasons I made that mistake is that I paid particular attention to the farmers in my home state of Tennessee, and I had a certain fondness for the farmers in the state of Iowa because I was about to run for president
That’s a plain admission that political considerations, not a will to ‘save the planet’, drove Gore to support a disastrous and costly corn ethanol problem. Remember that Al Gore saved corn ethanol with a tie-breaker vote in the US Senate in 1994, even though he knew it was worse for the environment than regular gas. He owns this in a way that no-one else does, and now he has admitted what motivated his vote.

Al has admitted that politics drove his support for corn ethanol, so what can we suppose motivates him to push the global warming hoax today? Is it power, publicity, politics, or profit? One thing we can be sure about, Gore’s personal carbon footprint proves that whatever motivates him, it’s not concern for the planet.

Fscking hypocrite. And people still vote for the moron.
