Algore Alliance Raises Its Ugly Head

And guess what he’s calling for? Nationalizing the power grid. That’s right, two days after the election, Algore is calling on the inexperienced president elect for more socialism by turning over the power grid to the government. And I’m sure, securing a little more money for his carbon credit scam.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection has some environmental advice for the incoming Obama administration: focus on energy efficiency and renewable resources, and create a unified U.S. power grid.

You know how great China, North Korea, India do with their power grids. And the prez elect seems to like the way China works.

On Thursday, the group Gore founded rolled out a new media campaign to push for immediate investments in three energy areas it maintains would help meet Gore’s previously announced challenge to produce 100 percent clean electricity in the United States in a decade.

Pegged to Obama’s election victory on Tuesday, the Gore group’s ads on television, in newspapers and online, pose the question, “Now what?”

“Our nation just made history,” one video says. “We have an historic opportunity to boost our economy and repower America with 100 percent clean electricity within 10 years. It will create new American jobs, end our addiction to dirty coal and foreign oil and solve the climate crisis.”

And do you know what’s scarier than that?

Gore — former vice president, Nobel Peace laureate and star of the Oscar-winning documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” — has said repeatedly he wants to play no official government role in the fight against climate change.

But with environmental activists talking about a possible “climate czar” in President-elect Barack Obama‘s White House, Gore’s name inevitably gets mentioned.

Gore and his group are in line with most U.S. environmental groups, which see the next administration as a chance to act to stem global warming, after what many see as the Bush administration‘s stalling on this issue.

R.K. Pachauri, head of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, who shared the Nobel Peace Prize with Gore in 2007, sounded a similar note in a statement issued after the vote.

“The U.S. now has a unique opportunity to assume leadership in meeting the threat of climate change, and it would help greatly if the new president were to announce a coherent and forward looking policy soon after he takes office,”

There are some dark days ahead. Figuratively and literally.
