    It said that Gore's reasons aren't the same as Cruz's:

    Unless you believe that the past twelve years or so he was educating the world about catastrophic climate change for the same reasons that Ted Cruz went pheasant hunting in Iowa.

    That doesn't suggest altruism, though it does suggest something other than exclusively personal ambition. At any rate it certainly doesn't exclude making a lot of money for doing the right thing.

    The core of neoliberal thought is that government must always yield to business, not "partner" with it unless the partnership is predatory by business.

    Gore has changed, in that his electoral victory was thwarted by corporate interests who also are the biggest polluters. He has accepted that business methods for averting climate change are more effective than merely having government interfere with business.

    Look, you're wrong about what neoliberalism is, wrong about what the comment you replied to said, wrong about how Gore operates. It's obvious that you've got an agenda that's casting your experience of these things, probably consistent with a username like "socialismorbarbarism".
