Former Vice President Al Gore’s daughter and other activists are due back in court after being arrested during a natural gas pipeline protest in Boston.
Karenna Gore, activist Tim DeChristopher and four others are expected to appear Friday in Boston Municipal Court after pleading not guilty to misdemeanor charges of trespassing, resisting arrest and disturbing the peace following the June 29 protest.
They were among 23 protesters arrested for trying to block construction of Spectra Energy’s West Roxbury Lateral pipeline by lying in a trench and refusing to move.
Several of the protesters struck deals to have their charges reduced to civil infractions or to serve probation. Gore and the others declined.
Houston-based Spectra Energy Corp. says the pipeline will provide a reliable energy source to the region.

I wonder how the Gore family heats their home in the winter?
The same way he flies all over the country – either gasoline or natural gas. One idiot begot another brainwashed idiot who can be lead just like him. Like Father, like Children!! my opinion.
Don’t you know the Rich want the poor to continue to do ‘without,” and they are free to do as they wish. Hillary bragged about not driving for over 20 years. She has a ”driver” that drives her and Bill around (usually not together) and Private Luxury Jets. They live in Luxury Homes as does the Hollywood and Bankers where their Energy Bill for one month could feed 2,000 or more for a month. Hillary walks out in a $6,000.00 and makes those Lying Speeches as to how she will help the poor. Those two were in the Office for 8 years and sent our jobs all over the world.

Creating jobs and fine companies for hiring illegals. People on or off welfare work or they don’t eat. No excuse for not working. Even those with disabilities can work.
Leslie Bennett says
A lot of people on Disability are perfectly able to work but I know so many that want to but can’t because of their health. They had rather be working!
Probably burns cow pies for fuel.

Spencer Washington says
As of 2007 when Vice-President Gore completed renovations to make his Nashville, Tennessee home more energy efficient, the former Vice-President consumes about $43,000 each year in electricity, and Natural Gas. This is not counting his use of Jet Fuel and other forms of energy for transportation, or the nice cozy fire that Al Gore the Sex Kitten undoubtedly keeps going in his bedroom when he is getting another one of his $800 massages.
I hate when liberals breed. They are all the same.
All the hollyweirdos are behind this madness.
Thousands of scientists have come out and stated that al gore is an idiot. Nothing he says is true. But…. Crickets.
Anything that liberals can do to try to trick the sheeple And what’s amazing is,they listen. Morons
Common sense is NOT common in liberals minds

First question, does Gore and the other protestors live in the area that was going to benefit from the pipeline? It’s easy for people to try to force their beliefs on other people rather than living under those opinions themselves.
It would be interesting to know how Ms. Gore heats her home and powers her car. Does she use natural gas, propane or electricity created by a fossil fuel power plant? Natural gas is supposedly a clean form of energy. It’s hard to believe that environmentalists are opposed to natural gas. Maybe the real issue is Ms. Gore and her fellow troublemakers just want to deprive people of the ability to stay warm in the winter. Hopefully the judge will make an example of these protestors.
I believe the bottom line is: These are the individuals who will massively profit from the ‘Green Energy’ scams and ‘Global Warming’ hoax being perpetrated on America by the progressive/liberal left.
She and her fellow protesters were blocking construction by lying in a trench? And where were the guys with the bulldozers and backhoes, anyway? I mean, they could have finished filling in the trench AND taken care of the protesters at the same time. C’mon, people, think!
i thought maybe al had her arrested for being a denier, should have known better
Dianne Lehman RN says
Here’s a thought::: Lay the pipe on top of them and cover it with dirt. Guaranteed they’ll move or at least attempt to. Idiots.
Maybe she should do something constructive like get a job!!!
