Al Gore’s NYT op-ed

Today’s New York Times features an op-ed by Al Gore. In it, he argues that President Bush’s energy policy caters to the American oil and chemical industries.

Many op-eds carrying politicians’ names are really written by their staffers. But this one seems to have actually been penned by Gore himself–check out this whopper of an opening sentence: “Under the presidency of George W. Bush, the environmental and energy policies of our government are completely dominated by a group of current and former oil and chemical company executives who are trying to dismantle America’s ability to force them to reduce the extremely dangerous levels of pollution in the earth’s atmosphere.”
