The science is settled: Carbon billionaire Al Gore’s “green” house of cards is crumbling. As a result he’s being forced to jettison the obviously failing parts of it in order to try and keep the rest of the sham afloat:

ATHENS, Nov 22 (Reuters) – Former U.S. vice-president Al Gore said support for corn-based ethanol in the United States was “not a good policy”, weeks before tax credits are up for renewal.

U.S. blending tax breaks for ethanol make it profitable for refiners to use the fuel even when it is more expensive than gasoline. The credits are up for renewal on Dec. 31.

Total U.S. ethanol subsidies reached $7.7 billion last year according to the International Energy Industry, which said biofuels worldwide received more subsidies than any other form of renewable energy.

“It is not a good policy to have these massive subsidies for (U.S.) first generation ethanol,” said Gore, speaking at a green energy business conference in Athens sponsored by Marfin Popular Bank.

Gore must have removed “federally subsidized ethanol refineries” from his investment portfolio.

Who promoted these policies to the hilt that are now “not good policy”? Al Gore. Why? Because it would save all of us from global warming. Just kidding — he promoted ethanol subsidies in order to buy off farmers in his state heading into a presidential election. But don’t take my word for it — ask Al:

“One of the reasons I made that mistake is that I paid particular attention to the farmers in my home state of Tennessee, and I had a certain fondness for the farmers in the state of Iowa because I was about to run for president.”

Translation: I promoted something I knew couldn’t work and ultimately cost taxpayers a fortune, all for my own political, and ultimately financial, gain.

What else is Al lying about? Let’s start with “everything” and work backwards.

    This should remove any lingering doubts about Al-"I invented the internet but that pales to the fortune I made scamming the world with man-made climate change"-Goracle being a LYING OPPORTUNIST !!

    I HATE ethenol fuel ! It`s desolving/corroding the aluminum fuel system parts in my `98 pickup; it delivers less power than straight gasoline and regardless of the pump price, ethenol costs me on average 80 miles per tankfull ! That means I must fill up more often ! Add the fact that countries who use more corn for food than we do are experiencing shortages and higher prices (predicted but denied) !

    Darrel Issa has another target !

    Did I say I HATE ethenol ? I meant to !

  2. Marshall_Will on November 22nd, 2010 4:58 pm

    Doug? I hope you're not implying Al give BACK his well-deserved Nobel Fraud Prize? They don't 'give' those out to just anyone you know!

    Yes, further, Oregon-Hearts-Deathanol. It will eat through your fuel filter and your gas-slash-deathanol pedal will feel like you are "stepping on a sock full of sh!t". Along w/ the added 'extra' the once-a-year mandatory fuel filter replacement is no longer like going to NAPA and forking over $3.95 plus the 5 mins. it took to put it in?

    Mrs. Will's Jag ran about $200. Fun stuff! Suck it Al.

  3. Doug on November 22nd, 2010 5:01 pm

    Actually, considerting the list of some of the people who have won a Nobel, including Arafat and Jimmy Carter, I'd say that it's only fitting that Gore be allowed to keep it!

  4. Marshall_Will on November 22nd, 2010 5:26 pm

    "it's only fitting"

    True enough. We touched on "when are we going to get some transparency in our 'transparency' ?" in the past. Frankly, I suppose I just assumed the only way Gore would ever come clean was via deathbed confession?

    So this is refreshing. Now that Al has shown his courage and shared about untruths from 'his' past, perhaps some of the 'rest' of the members of our group would like to come forward..?

    Or… we could just sit in this little circle of folding chairs in the basement of a church and STARE at each other.

    This will see no coverage outside the blogosphere. After all, we had a senator who was a part of the KKK but it was okay since he was just trying to get elected. Lying about the profitability of ethanol to try and get elected isn't such a big deal in comparison.

    But WE are the stupid ones! For a lie to work, it must first be believable….the man-made climage change hoax never was , even in the late `60s and early `70s when it first took hold !

  8. Marshall_Will on November 22nd, 2010 10:15 pm

    "thinks no one knew this previously" LOL!

    Right, just like we were all floored to learn Liberache was gay! ( Mother almost had a heart attack ) At least 'one' of them had talent.

  9. SignPainterGuy on November 22nd, 2010 11:07 pm

    LIBERACHE WAS GAY ??!! What?!
    Among my earliest memories is his tv show ! At 4 and 5 yrs old I dearly loved his piano music and the world had to be quiet while it was on. I`d gather up some toys, sit on the floor and play and listen intently, and my family was gracious enough to allow it. But even then, I "knew" something was not quite right ! I could not stand to look at him, but listen I did ! And that`s my story and I`m stickin` to it !

  10. SignPainterGuy on November 23rd, 2010 12:06 am

    Saw earlier today on Weasel Zippers where Hock-My-Dinner-Jacket is selling his used car …… Mentions Jimmah Carter as possible buyer ! Too funny ! As in, would you buy a used car from this man ? Peanut Man would !!

  11. Ken in Texas on November 23rd, 2010 2:08 am

    Hi, there! I'm a polar bear and Al is taking great care of me, thank you very much! No; I'm not really, but it was Liberace, not Liberache. I have, I think., "liver-ache" from too many years of high livin', good whiskey, and 30 oz. T-bones. I used to chase women, too. Now I'm too old to remember why.

    As for listening to anything Al Gore has to say, I'd rather shit on the ground and fall backwards.

  12. SignPainterGuy on November 23rd, 2010 2:59 am

    "Liberace, not Liberache." Hey, I just make signs, I don`t read them ! Tee hee !

    Sorry to hear what your history may have wrought, but at least the mess you`d make can be cleaned up with a little inexpensive soap and water and won`t bankrupt a nation !

    Al Gore's glomming onto the global warming crowd has always been about politics. The fact that Al Gore is and will be making money with this scheme, well that's just gravy (the super yummy billion dollar kind) for the goose. He is and has been trying to destroy the wealth of George W. Bush,his decendents, and Big Oil because of the 2000 election. Now that "tax breaks for ethanol make it profitable for refiners" Al Gore says NOW its not a good policy.

    Students should focus on learning essay writing also. They will have no need to go to professionals to get their essay written. They can save a lot of money also by writing essays by themselves.

    Thanks a lot for letting us know about Al Gore's ffailed experiment. I was having a doubt that this experiment will fail.

  20. Rubber Gym Mats UK on July 2nd, 2015 5:39 am

    I think Al Gore was wrong at making that decission. People were not hoping good results from that experiment.

  21. London Bricks UK on July 2nd, 2015 6:23 am

    AL Gore was mad at that time. It was not a successful experiment. I hope such mistake will never be repeated again. Anyhow, it is a great website.

  22. Hand Made Bricks on July 2nd, 2015 7:14 am

    The experiments that have a low chances of success should be avoided at any cost. Such type of experiments are merely the wastage of time and finances. Governments should spend more on people's welfare instead of such expensive experiments that bring no benefit at all.
