"It's inconceivable," stated the Latin American Observatory on Environmental Conflicts, "that one of the world's leading opinion-makers on global warming would travel to Chile financed" by Barrick Gold. Barrick is destroying Chile's glaciers and polluting the air with dangerous toxins, it charges.</p><p>Fabiola Marin of the Vidau NGO warned in a letter April 7 that "Al Gore may have the image of an environmental campaigner, but he is being callous in associating with the mining firm Barrick Gold... Every environmentalist in Chile would like to warn him that his image as an environmentalist will be ruined if he attends events sponsored by Barrick Gold."</p><p>Gore's "callousness" is explained by his cozy relationship with Bush family interests that are now deeply involved in promoting alternative energy sources. Former President George H.W. Bush sits on Barrick's International Advisory Board along with former Canadian Premier Brian Mulroney. Barrick President Peter Munk's membership in the British-controlled "1001 Club" along with genocidalist Maurice Strong, is coherent with the fact that Gore himself is wholly controlled by the same British financier interests which seek the destruction of the human race.</p></div></body>
