Back in the Summer last year, I commented to a few friends that this whole global warming crap was a way to make some liberal socialites very rich, very quick. I told them that this was simply another Iraqi “oil for food program”. The story below seems to confirm what I long suspected.
You see, folks, the leftists are always into saving the planet and being good “citizens of the world” all the while padding their big fat wallets.
Here’s some free advice for all of the naive and gullible out there: next time you hear of the next “crisis” the world is undergoing, just follow the greenback. That will show you where their true motives lie.
Al Gore defends his extraordinary personal energy usage by telling critics he maintains a “carbon neutral” lifestyle by buying “carbon offsets,” but the company that receives his payments turns out to be partly owned and chaired by the former vice president himself.Gore has built a “green money-making machine capable of eventually generating billions of dollars for investors, including himself, but he set it up so that the average Joe can’t afford to play on Gore’s terms,” writes blogger Dan Riehl.
Gore has described the lifestyle he and his wife Tipper live as “carbon neutral,” meaning he tries to offset any energy usage, including plane flights and car trips, by “purchasing verifiable reductions in CO2 elsewhere.”
But it turns out he pays for his extra-large carbon footprint through Generation Investment Management, a London-based company with offices in Washington, D.C., for which he serves as chairman. The company was established to take financial advantage of new technologies and solutions related to combating “global warming,” reports blogger Bill Hobbs.
