Former Vice President Al Gore informed Canadians Tuesday that there is no such thing as “ethical oil” in a public talk just a few months after the sale of his Current TV to Qatar-backed Al Jazeera.
A $5 million lawsuit has been filed against Current TV’s co-founder Al Gore for not compensating the man who proposed selling the network to Al-Jazeera, according to Hollywood Reporter.
Al Gore was not the only one who tried to avoid the higher tax rates that took effect in 2013.
Elon Musk, the potential energy secretary nominee, major President Barack Obama donor, and technology entrepreneur behind SpaceX, Tesla Motors, and PayPal, has purchased a $17 million mansion in Bel-Air as reported by the Los Angeles Times.
Al Gore’s Current TV confirmed Wednesday evening that it has been sold to Al Jazeera for an estimated $400 to $500 million, with the former vice president set to pocket $100 million from the sale.
