The TRUTH about Food and Travel
Broadcast Date:  4/17/23

During a 1988 campaign stop in North Carolina, presidental candidate Al Gore stood on a flat bed truck and told a group of farmers that he too was a tobacco farmer.  Critics noted both the irony and the hypocrisy, as Gore's sister had died four years earlier from lung cancer.  Some would say that over the years since, this same politician has turned the government's public policy towards energy into a personal financial windfall.  Al Gore's current "push" for renewable energy is for the use of offshore windmills. But at what price?  Both the seafood industry as well as ecologists are concerned as the proliferation of windmills off the coast of the US, that could be devastating to both. 

Elizabeth has a message of both warning, and a call to action!
