Big Surprise: Al Gore Opposed to Canada-to-Texas Oil Pipeline

Given Gore’s enormous level of eco-hypocrisy, it’s possible he’s only opposed because the proposed pipeline wouldn’t run straight to his mansions, limos and private jets.

From The Hill:

Former Vice President Al Gore called on President Obama late Wednesday to reject a pending permit application for a controversial pipeline project, calling the oil that it would carry “the dirtiest fuel on the planet.”

“The answer to our climate, energy and economic challenges does not lie in burning more dirty fossil fuels —instead, we must continue to press for much more rapid development of renewable energy and energy efficient technologies and cuts in the pollution that causes global warming,” Gore, a vocal climate activist, wrote on his blog Wednesday night.

The State Department is just months away from a decision on the proposed TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline, which would carry Canadian oil sands from Alberta to refineries on the Texas Gulf coast.

Gore also praised the those who protested the pipeline in front of the White House the other day. During that protest, actress Daryl Hannah was arrested for A) Refusing to comply with US Park Police; B) Failure to pay back taxes; or C) Taking part in the remake of Attack of the 50ft Woman (the answer is “A”…I think).

Via Jamie Weinstein at the Daily Caller, here’s video of a few of the protesters near the White House. If some of these folks don’t have careers waiting for them in the EPA (or even as future directors of NASA’s Goddard Institute) I don’t know who does:
