Mr. Gore, you have damaged the credibility of environmentalists everywhere by, as you recently admitted, supporting corn ethanol for political gains. As a vocal spokesperson for the environment, people believed you. Hardcore environmentalist and those touched by an ethanol plant fiasco “got it” but the environmental “light” crowd took a long time to understand that ethanol is a really bad idea. Because of wrapping ethanol in an environmental flag, even NPR was reluctant report the whole ethanol story. You have engaged in the same special interest deals for which you are reprimanding others. How sad and shameful!
