Al Gore in the news

He endorsed Bill Bradbury in his governor's run for Oregon and a little bit on what Bill wants to do -- from Daily Kos:
Al Gore Endorses Bill Bradbury For Governor of Oregon
Today in front of over 400 of my enthusiastic supporters Al Gore endorsed my candidacy for Governor.

In doing so Al Gore said,
"I�m proud to endorse Bill Bradbury as the next Governor of this state... I am here to speak for Bill Bradbury and to tell you what I know about this man and what he has meant to me personally as a friend of extremely strong character, commitment and leadership."
Bill Bradbury's diary :: ::
I am incredibly honored to have received this endorsement from someone who has done so much to highlight the issue of Global Climate Change and really help define it as one of the challenges of our generation. It is truly an honor to receive such an endorsement from the former Vice President in a Democratic primary.
"400 of my enthusiastic supporters" - here are the 500 people who came out to protest:
"Al Gore's a Liar" pretty much sums it up nicely. The video is from Minnesotans for Global Warming:
500 Protestors Chant 'Al Gore's A Liar!' in Portland
There were 200 protesters at Gore's Boca Raton appearance a few days ago, and around 500 at this one (in Portland Oregon) i.e. about 400 around the stage at the American's for Prosperity Hot Air Tour event, and at least another 100 walking around on the sidewalks on the perimeter of the park carrying anti-Gore/anti-cap and trade signs. The Greenpeace activists seemed a bit surprised/perturbed that they had vocal opposition in their presence.
Anyway, back to Bill Bradbury and his platform (again from Kos):
  1. I will not be an absentee parent when it comes to the Business Energy Tax Credit. I will work closely with the Legislature to ensure that the sustainable industries that need the credits get them and it is tailored to maximize it�s effectiveness.
  2. I will implement tough and innovative energy efficiency standards, like the television standard adopted yesterday in California. I believe we could implement that standard in my first year in office.
  3. I will end the practice of using energy in this state from coal-fired power plants. It is our dirty secret. We think we�re a hydro state � but 40% of our energy comes from coal, much of it from an antiquated coal-fired plant in Boardman. That must end.
  4. I will fight tooth and nail, as I have already done, to not allow Liqufied Natural Gas facilities in the Columbia River or anywhere in Oregon. I will chain my Segway to a LNG tanker if I have to. It makes no sense to make a 30 year commitment to a fossil fuel source when we should be investing in renewable energy technology instead.
What a fscking moron -- of course, the enviroweenies will eat this shit up and call it ice cream. Good plan for killing a state. The word you will be looking for in a few years is "bankruptcy"...
