California ‘Current’ Love: Qatar

“Of course Al didn’t show up,” said one high placed Current staffer. “He has no credibility.“He’s supposed to be the face of clean energy and just sold [the channel] to very big oil, the emir of Qatar! Current never even took big oil advertising—and Al Gore, that bullshitter sells to the emir?”



Let me start out by saying I have never been a fan of the anonymous quote. Its shoddy and in my opinion; just simply not credible. Now with that said, I would think the quote above courtesy of the NY-Post is more of a punch line, more so than it is something to derive information from. That is because I think its obvious the sentiment for Gore from employees at Current… just ask Eliot Spitzer if he digs the new format.

If I was to quote anyone, I would quote rapper Ice Cube, as I think it sums up the whole process here:


“Bend over, grab your ass, spread your cheeks and give me two big coughs”


No, I’m not just quoting Ice Cube’s ‘first day of school’, I’m quoting Al Gore and the green police’s latest move, who tapped that green ass like a piggy bank; all the way from Cali’ to Qatar.

Yes indeed, the green movement got a little darker this last week (how about onyx black) with the sale of Current TV to Qatar funded Al-Jazeera. Yes, THAT Al-Jazeera. It was reported that Glenn Beck was interested into buying Current TV but was rebuked because he was too “right”. Alana Goodman ( said it best about dismissing Beck for Qatar:


“But an authoritarian-Islamist government that has criminalized homosexuality, discriminates against non-Muslims, prosecutes journalists, and has a “Not Free” rating from Freedom House?”


There are no shortages of punchlines you could come up with here regarding Gore and this sale. It’s literally endless. The real story is the people who actually believed in the man or at least the movement enough to stomach the man who give them a voice.

The green movement has been effective because it bully’s people and companies out of fear or isolation. These unsavory tactics such a hyperbole, misinformation and just flat out lies make this happen. And nobody exemplifies this more so than then Mr Gore. This is the same guy who warned of 10-20 foot rising coastal areas in his book/movie ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, before he bought that Nine million dollar pad in Monticeto, California so he could rub elbows with Oprah. After this lie was brought to light he admitted to it, because he knows if he makes it scary enough (even if its false) people will act, talk about sheer ignorance or arrogance:


“I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is…” – Al Gore


The green movement has come a long way since those crazy 60’s. They have long since traded in their tree hugging for cappuccinos and Ipads. Instead of protesting deforestation with protests chaining themselves to trees in rain forests, this crowd are chained to a chair in at Starbucks (without any sense of irony) blabbering about how evil capitalism is for its carbon footprints. As a side note, I’m not impressed with any protesters involving trees until you take it to this level. Wake me up when you display that type of commitment to your premise.

Going “green” is an ideal that while may sound like a great idea; it’s still an ideal. Thus, it is highly desired but hardly practical.

Big Al knows this. He is a capitalist himself. He capitalized on his surname via his daddy’s political career and made himself hundreds of millions of dollars in personal wealth by parlaying his career in politics into becoming the face of an entire ideology. He has no real work history to speak of, out of politics with no experience… yet he here he is, the fattest cat in the room (pun intended).  

He’s L Ron Hubbard incarnate (minus the kinky sexcapades). He’s made a fortune off ideologues, fear, politics and being a natural and gifted self promoter with nothing to sell. That’s a talent. So congrats to Al Gore going green via his sale and subsequent windfall made possible by big oil, anti-gay, anti-free speech or basically everything he allegedly fought against as a Democratic Congressman, Senator and VP; you know, the party beholden to the (sic) common man… minus the Vaseline.

    Al Gore’s been a repugnant caste system environmentalist for as long as he’s been one. Like Diane Feinstein perfectly comfortable with getting a concealed carry license for herself but wanting to take any firearms from the general populace, Al Gore preached environmentalism to the proles while jetting and motorcading around including to his immense, energy hog primary residence.
