How Al Gore’s anti-coal activists hurt Bangladesh’s poorest

Tanveer AhmedRebel Commentator

The poorest people in the world still need coal, such as the Rampal plant currently being built in Bangladesh. 

This project was met by intense protest from environmental activists however, including Al Gore.

They contend the coal will damage the adjacent mangrove forests and the endangered Royal Bengal Tiger, despite all appropriate measures being taken in line with international guidelines.

It seems activist's concerns for the world's poor don't amount to much when stacked against other sacred cows, such as their insistence of the evils of coal.

Take Al Gore off the planet and distribute his wealth to the poor of Bangladesh and it will be a huge step to helping the crisis

Great report Tanveer!
Gore, ever the alarmist – the people of Bangladesh don’t answer to him. The Prime Minister rightly put him in his place.

Good on the Bangladeshi Prime Minister standing up for her people against the bully elite. Must be nice for country to have a leader who supports the people.
