Noel Sheppard from NewsBusters has a piece over on Planet Gore examining the media’s silence on some inconvenient truths about the former veep: how he stands to profit from the ethanol mandates that he inscribed into law with his tie-breaking Senate vote in 1994 — and thus, his role in the global food crisis those mandates have helped engender. It’s worth a read.

Add it up, and you’ve got an astounding number of dollars invested in agritechnology companies by Gore and folks connected to him, who together possess extraordinary clout and access to Congress, and who are also willing to spend $300 million on a public-relations campaign to create (at least the impression of) a public movement for legislative action to “solve” anthropogenic global warming — all with the green media’s blessing.
