One of the bigger news stories today is that Al Gore is now saying that cigarette smoking is a factor in global warming.
Well, considering that as a youth, Al worked on the Gore family tobacco farm. In fact, in 1988, while campaigning for president, he said “Throughout most of my life, I raised tobacco. I want you to know that with my own hands, all of my life, I put it in the plant beds and transferred it. I’ve hoed it. I’ve dug in it. I’ve sprayed it, I’ve chopped it, I’ve shredded it, spiked it, put it in the barn and stripped it and sold it.”
So now he says that cigarette smoking is a factor in global warming? well, if anyone ought to know about tobacco, it’s him.
