Gore admits that he knew that ethanol in cars was bad environmental policy, but voted for it anyway to win votes in the 2000 election. Key quote:

“One of the reasons I made that mistake is that I paid particular attention to the farmers in my home state of Tennessee, and I had a certain fondness for the farmers in the state of Iowa because I was about to run for president,” the former vice president said.

    Its been pretty obvious frrom the way he carefully “spins” the facts in films like “inconvient truth” that he knows what hes saying is BS. That hes starting to admit it probably means hes retiring from riding that horse.

    I have noticed he hasn’t been talking as much about these in a while.
