Even some on the left are having a hard time looking the other way at Al Gore’s latest round of hypocrisy. Gore, who is making the rounds promoting a new book, has been questioned by the likes of Matt Lauer and MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski for cashing out to oil-backed Al Jazeera.

Last night even David Letterman couldn’t help but bring it up:

The pair then went on to discuss Al Jazeera further, including its country of origin, Qatar — for which Gore used the descriptor “gas and oil.”

“So you’re selling this television network to a gas and oil supported emirate,” Letterman remarked. “Isn’t that one of the problems with global warming, our dependence on petroleum-producing countries?”

“Yes, it is,” Gore said.

“So you, Al Gore,” Letterman interjected, “are doing business with this country that’s enabling your ultimate foe of climate change.”

“I think I understand what you’re getting at, Dave,” Gore replied, “but I disagree with it.”

Gore then offered the rationale that “they [Qatar] have ambitious plans to develop renewables in the region.” I think he’s telling the truth too because Al’s check for tens of millions of dollars is drawn on the “Bank of the Future Renewable Energy Ministry of Solar, Wind, Geothermal, Algae and Oryx Flatulence.”

Qatar has the highest per-capita greenhouse gas emissions of any country in the world — second highest if Al Gore ever declares national sovereignty.

“In fairness to Mr. Gore, it was a really big check.”
