843 arrested protesting Keystone XL Pipeline while Gore tweets 2.2 million

Gore--TiME

Clicking the Time photo of Al Gore in his TN office ought to take you to his journal entry on Dirty Fuel.

So Al Gore finally found his blog and his phone–or his “assistants” did –and endorsed the Tar Sands Keystone XL Pipeline Protest. And it’s about time too. Gore has the power to draw media attention like few others. Come on, 2.2 million tweets! Where are those 2.2 million folks? Maybe they’re calling the perpetually BUSY White House phone line? Maybe 2.2 million tweeters are planning to tweet the White House? Imagine the mainstream media coverage world-wide IF Gore had put HIS body on the ARREST line outside the White House in DC. at the very start of the two week protests. Oh yeah. Would 2.2 million have followed Gore’s lead? Or would they just tweet to their twittering hearts’ content? I don’t know. BUT, I’d sure like to see it happen. Daryl Hannah got the media coverage flowing. What’s Al Gore, the man of Uncomfortable Truth, willing to do PERSONALLY? Why hasn’t he been out there with Hansen, McKibben, Hannah, the First Nations People and the youth of Power Shift?
Oh hey, Al, maybe YOU can call Ms. Clinton and get her to mention the protests to Mr. Hope and Change (not so far) Obama? Hmm? Come Gore, it’s a such a little chore for big fish like you in that D.C. pond. Seriously, no one cares what the like of moi does–but Al Gore–the man who had the presidency swiped from under his nose–lots of people pay attention to his every move. Come on, Gore, give us more!

PS. Mr. Gore, there’s this guy, Tim DeChristopher aka Bidder 70, in jail for disrupting an illegal land auction by bidding on land to save it from illegal gas and oil development, and well, Mr. Gore, Mr. DeChristopher put it all on the line to defend the Earth. Need I write more? Sorry, I don’t “tweet”

Still confused about the Tar Sands Protest? Real News coverage can help.

Oh yeah, yet another Keystone Pipeline Protest Post from yours truly. It’s going to be a long week of such posts as I wade the web for coverage of what’s going in front of the White House. Daryl Hannah got arrested at the protest. Thank you, Ms. Hannah. Where’s that Al Gore and his “truth” crew? Gore has the funds to travel everywhere so that’s not an issue. Holding out for the big finish or just holding out, Mr. Gore?

Oh and somewhere along the way I learned that Obama still has NOT put solar panels on the White House roof. LOL. What does that tell Us? Hmm?

Can you imagine destroying 740,000 acres of forest for a pipeline to carry “crude” from Alberta, Canada to Texas refineries? Is there no end to the insanity? People go to jail for starting forest fires. Why don’t oil company executives go to jail for destroying forests?
