"Clinton realized that America could not economically afford the Protocol Gore negotiated. The Clinton-Gore's Energy Department found Kyoto would lead to $400 billion a year in lost output. ... Gore tries to throw Enron on the back of the current administration. But it was Enron Board Chairman Kenneth Lay who sold Clinton-Gore on Kyoto's cap and trade system. Gore, Clinton, and Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin met with Lay on Aug. 7, 1997 to go over goals and procedures for the Kyoto session. ... The corporate smoking memo here was not that from an ExxonMobil adviser to oppose Dr. Watson, but the Enron internal memo saying Kyoto 'would do more to promote Enron's business than almost any other regulatory initiative'."

Reader comments about this quote:
Anything that Gore is involved in can't be good, except for Gore. Hooray for Trump in okaying the Keystone pipeline. It's 8 years to late but better late than never.

    I'm not quit sure how to rate this historical outlook. It does demonstrate well that the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land is a government of men, not a body politic of 'We The People' servants at law.

    I'm glad that Americans are finally starting to figure out how all this politics-business works! Thanks to WikiLeaks and TrumpTweets, so much has been exposed behind the scenes of the DNC and HillaryMail and the ClintonFoundation, all their games and deals... And now all eyes are on the rest of the establishment cronies, and they are all just as guilty and complicit as the Clinton's, Obama's, and the Bush's cohorts. This is merely business as usual.
