Climate Depot’s Round Up on Al Gore & Al-Jazeera:

Al Gore Sells Out to Big Oil & Gas: ‘Al-Jazeera received its initial funding through a decree from Emir of Qatar, & Qatar, gets its wealth from its vast oil & natural gas reserves’

Climate Depot Statement on AlGorjeera: ‘Gore’s massive personal cash influx from oil-backed Al Jazeera makes him by far the most lavishly funded fossil fuel player in the global warming debate today. Will the media now accurately label Gore an industry funded activist every time they report on him?’

AlGorjeera: Gore Takes $100 Million Of Big Oil: Gore ‘takes $100 million in cash from Big Oil (after making a lucrative living by claiming that it’s destroying the planet)’

AlGorjeera: Global warming causes Al Gore to sell Current TV to oil-backed Al Jazeera

AlGorjeera: Al Gore gives Big-Oil-Government a TV Channel and gets $100m in oil revenue

AlGorjeera: A tale of two Als: Why Al Gore sold out to Al Jazeera: ‘Gore sold out to Al Jazeera, a fast-growing media brand owned by one of the world’s biggest oil exporters’ — ‘Qatar has the largest per capita carbon footprint in the world’

Nobelist Gore Getting $70 Million From Qatar-Funded Al Jazeera: ‘It’s reeking with irony,” said Jeff Sonnenfeld, of the Yale School of Management, who studies corporate governance. ‘It seems to be at least a paradox in terms of his positions on sustainability and geopolitics’

AlGorjeera: A Match Made In Heaven? ‘It is interesting that conservative like Glenn Beck are anathema to Gore, whereas the rulers of Qatar, the world’s richest country, fit right in’

Middle East scholar Barry Rubin on Al Gore & Al-Jazeera: Gore is acting ‘disgracefully..In former, sane, times, doing something like this would have finished Gore’s credibility forever…’

Al-Jazeera buys Gore’s Current TV: ‘The Pope of Global Warming just lined his pockets with $100 million of… oil money’

Al Gore pockets $100 million from a channel financed by oil wealth and ‘reviled by American politicians for showing videotapes from Al Qaeda members and sympathizers’?

Country Music’s Charlie Daniels: ‘I will take Global Warming seriously when Al Gore flies commercial, rides a bicycle and moves into a one bedroom condo’

Gore touts Morano as ‘Climate ‘Misinformer of the Year’: ‘ClimateDepot.com founder Marc Morano has been called ‘the Matt Drudge of climate denial,’ the ‘king of the skeptics’ — Gore’s website features Climate Depot

Flashback 2007: Climate Clash: Gore Rebuffs Morano 37000 feet over South China Sea in 2007 – ‘You all attack me all the time’

Flashback 2009: Climate Depot on Gore’s path to become the first ‘Carbon Billionaire’

$100 million man — Gore to be govt billionaire?! Al Gore has thrived as green-tech investor — ‘Benefited from more than $2.5 billion in loans, grants and tax breaks’, as part of Obama’s stimulus — ’14 green-tech firms in which Gore invested received or directly benefited from more than $2.5 billion in loans, grants and tax breaks, part of Obama’s historic push to seed a U.S. renewable-energy industry with public money…Gore’s orbit extended deeply into the administration, with several former aides winning senior clean-energy posts. GIM saw its earnings quadruple from 2008 to 2009, although there is no way to know how much can be tied to federal support’

Flashback 2011: Gore Unhinged! Loses it on skeptical claims: ‘It may be volcanoes.’ Bullshit! ‘It may be sun spots.’ Bullshit! ‘It’s not getting warmer.’ Bullshit!’ — Climate Depot Responds! — Climate Depot’s Point-By-Point Rebuttal to Gore’s Highbrow Scientific Arguments

The Global Warming Science Machine: $79 Billion and Counting

Big Green: ‘Skeptics are fighting a billion dollar industry aligned with a trillion dollar trading scheme’ — Warmists get ’3,500 times as much $$ as anything offered to skeptics’ – ‘It buys a bandwagon of support, a repetitive rain of press releases, and includes PR departments of institutions like NOAA, NASA, the Climate Change Science Program and the Climate Change Technology Program. The $79 billion figure does not include money from other western governments, private industry, and is not adjusted for inflation. In other words, it could be…a lot bigger’
