Breitbart: Former Vice President Al Gore privately urged President Joe Biden to keep hundreds of billions of spending to subsidize green industries and even kill another proposed oil pipeline.
“As a dog returns to its vomit,
so fools repeat their folly. Proverbs 26:11 NIV
Gore called Biden personally and demanded he include billions of climate spending in his infrastructure bill, according to a report in the Washington Post.
Gore was encouraged to contact Biden by John Podesta, the former manager for Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign. Podesta’s influence has waned sharply after Clinton lost to former President Donald Trump in 2016.
Gore continues lobbying for more government spending to combat climate change, a mantle he claimed after losing his own race for president to George W. Bushin 2000.
