Al Gore , 1 big Asshole!

Al gore just may be the worlds biggest Asshole !
how can you call for civil disobedience over a coal plant , and expect to be taken serious ? And who does he think he is anyway?
What is his plan for energy ? Carbon Capture , and sequestration ? A method never before been done ! a method so expensive nobody will even give it a shot!
Give us all a break , there is nothing worse than one of the true Fat Cat's in the world trying to tell Me and you that we need to pay more money for our energy use !
I am all for the environment , but there has to be a line ( both ways of course ) that should not be crossed ! we try our best to not screw things up in the world and for some people that just is not good enough ! and on the other hand you cant expect us to be willing to pay more money for our energy just because the " Manbearpig " says so !!!/span>
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Nobel Peace Prize winner and environmental crusader Al Gore urged young people on Wednesday to engage in civil disobedience to stop the construction of coal plants without the ability to store carbon.

The former U.S. vice president, whose climate change documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" won an Academy Award, told a philanthropic meeting in New York City that "the world has lost ground to the climate crisis."

"If you're a young person looking at the future of this planet and looking at what is being done right now, and not done, I believe we have reached the stage where it is time for civil disobedience to prevent the construction of new coal plants that do not have carbon capture and sequestration," Gore told the Clinton Global Initiative gathering to loud applause.

"I believe for a carbon company to spend money convincing the stock-buying public that the risk from the global climate crisis is not that great represents a form of stock fraud because they are misrepresenting a material fact," he said. "I hope these state attorney generals around the country will take some action on that."

The government says about 28 coal plants are under construction in the United States. Another 20 projects have permits or are near the start of construction.

Scientists say carbon gases from burning fossil fuel for power and transport are a key factor in global warming.

Carbon capture and storage could give coal power an extended lease on life by keeping power plants' greenhouse gas emissions out of the atmosphere and easing climate change.

But no commercial-scale project exists anywhere to demonstrate the technology, partly because it is expected to increase up-front capital costs by an additional 50 percent.So-called geo-sequestration of carbon sees carbon dioxide liquefied and pumped into underground rock layers for long term storage.
