Gore's vacation in South America saved?

So, apparently, and after much ado (and a good deal of pressure from the environ-terrorists) Gore's vacation is somewhat "saved". He will not speak and be payed by the world's largest gold mining company BARRICK GOLD CORPORATION. Last night, Barrick decided that they would withdraw their sponsorship to his global warming conference in Santiago...

This tells us two things:
-Annoying lobby works and,
-that the "internets" have a certain power to inform and revert dubious political tendencies, currently underway...

Still, Gore can't claim that he didn't know. That's not even an option.

He also plans (the day before the Santiago thing) to speak at a biofuel congress in Buenos Aires, payed for by...Dynamotive & their best friend, Monsanto...and one of the world's largest oil company, Repsol...

Sound familiar? Pass us the corn, please.

This is amazing!!! Is there a similar grassroots movement in Argentina to lobby against Al's unlikely friends?

Thank you for this update!
