Al Gore, not everybody’s Hero.

"He is more dangerous than his global warming." Bob Murray

While many of America’s CEO’s are lining up to kiss the ass of the "Global Warming" Guru Al Gore, hopeing to reap profit from the "Green" revolution. One, Bob Murray, founder and CEO of Murray Energy Corporation, is fighting back.

Speaking at The New York Coal Trade Association 94th annual meeting Murray told the audience "Some wealthy elitists in our country, who cannot tell fact from fiction, can afford an Olympian detachment from the impacts of draconian climate change policy. For them, the jobs and dreams destroyed as a result will be nothing more than statistics and the cares of other people. These consequences are abstractions to them, but they are not to me, as I can name many of the thousands of the American citizens whose lives will be destroyed by these elitists' ill-conceived ‘global goofiness' campaigns."

Murray lived the American Horatio Alger life, starting as a coal miner in Ohio where he survived two mining accidents. Murray mortgaged his house and leveraged the money to build a private coal mining company.
