Even far-left hack David Letterman can’t ignore the flaming hypocrisy.
Al Gore has sparked some questions after selling Current TV to Al Jazeera — particularly given that climate change has been his cause of choice for years. On Tuesday night, David Letterman joined those who have wondered about the apparent contradiction. [...]
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.”
