Climate Reality Project – Al Gore The Tobacco Hypocrite
Posted by Tory Aardvark
Anyone who tuned into Al Gore’s Goregasm yesterday could have been forgiven for thinking it was an anti-smoking campaign, not an attempt to keep the pews full at the Church of Climatology.
Questioning the use of tobacco to promote fear of man made climate change, Aardvark was soon informed as to the validity of the analogy, or not.
An excerpt from the Press Room of the Climate Reality Project states:
This campaign comes at a critical time. As the impacts of climate change are growing more prevalent, so is the resistance to finding the truth and implementing solutions. Just like the tobacco companies that spent decades in denial that smoking causes cancer, oil and coal companies are determined to sow denial and confusion about the science of climate change, ignore its impacts, and create apathy among our leaders
Al Gore is very informed about the tobacco industry, he should be, he and his family were involved in the tobacco industry for many years:
Al Gore has conveniently forgotten that his family used to be in the tobacco industry.
As reported by NPR about an interview yesterday with Gore as part of his 24-hour assault on climate science:
He went on to accuse those who express the loudest doubts about whether humans are contributing to climate change of “doing exactly the same thing that the tobacco industry did after the Surgeon General’s report came out” linking smoking to cancer. “They hired actors and dressed them up as doctors and gave them scripts” saying that smoking isn’t harmful. Today, said Gore, “carbon polluters” are paying for climate change doubters to say similar things.
But as reported by the New York Times in 1998,
Six years after Vice President Al Gore’s older sister died of lung cancer in 1984, he was still accepting campaign contributions from tobacco interests. Four years after she died, while campaigning for President in North Carolina, he boasted of his experiences in the tobacco fields and curing barns of his native Tennessee. And it took several years after Nancy Gore Hunger’s death for Mr. Gore and his parents to stop growing tobacco on their own farms in Carthage, Tenn.
So it seems that the Al Gore and his family were quite content to profit from tobacco users for more than 20 years after the January 1964 publication of the first Surgeon General report on smoking and health.
Al Gore the complete hypocrite, from the massive carbon footprint of his lifestyle to his, and his families involvement with Big Tobacco, Gore knows you can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time.
