Gore Praises Presidents Rejection of Pipeline
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 28 Jan 2012 | John Semmens

Former Vice-President Al Gore heaped praise on President Obama’s decision to block construction of the Keystone Pipeline, calling it “the medicine we need to break our addiction modern civilization.”

“I know the President’s GOP critics have been harping on the negative impacts this will have on the US economy,” Gore admitted. “But they’re overlooking the very real environmental benefits of higher fuel prices and unemployment.”

“If we were to build the pipeline more oil would flow into America,” Gore pointed out. “More oil means lower prices for gasoline. Lower prices mean more driving. More driving means more pollution. Avoiding this is a major gain from the President’s decision.”

Gore also cited the broader economic impacts of the decision as a plus for the environment. “In general, cheaper energy would likely decrease unemployment,” Gore acknowledged. “What’s frequently forgotten, though, is that every time an unemployed person gets a job, that’s another car added to the stream of traffic. Let’s face it. The recession we are in has been a great boon for the environment. The longer it goes on the less pollution we emit.”

The former VP urged Obama to “look for other ways to assist in the deindustrialization that is imperative if we want to save the planet from the scourge we call human kind.”
