Big Oil Launches Attack on Al Gore
Posted on May 17, 2006
A think tank bankrolled in part by oil companies has launched a disinformation campaign against Gore’s “global warming alarmism” in his movie “An Inconvenient Truth.”
Today, the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) will unveil two 60-second TV ads focusing on what it calls ?global warming alarmism and the call by some environmental groups and politicians to reduce fossil fuel and carbon dioxide emissions.? The ad, which will be aired in more than a dozen cities across the country, is being released just a week before the May 24th opening (in LA and NYC) of Al Gore?s new movie on global warming, An Inconvenient Truth.
