Gore's Free Market Ideas As Bad As His Credibility

If you want to have a friendly laugh, read Gore's statements about how the free market works. Among them is this (source: linking to, on the subject of Global Warming and energy production:

"There is so much low-hanging fruit. We are wasting more than 90 percent of the energy we think we're using. If we actually join this global effort [Kyoto], then the next day every member of every board of director of every corporation on the planet will have a fiduciary obligation to reduce carbon emissions quickly and dramatically — or else they're not protecting shareholder value.

"We need to use the forces of the marketplace [sic] as positive allies to solve this crisis, and we can. And I think we will. "

Forces of the marketplace???? Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-HAAAAAAAA! (My stomach hurts.)

Oh well. His heart does seem to be in the right place. I like the guy much more as a GW Nut than as a presidential candidate. Let's hope this is not what he says it isn't, i.e. a roundabout way to get into the race again. He's so much more likable as Good Ol' Al. By the way, did you know he's a director of Apple and a senior advisor at Google? Who knew?
