I was just revisiting the Lippo coal deal. Clinton/Gore really made some rare fossil fuels priceless to certain conspiratorial cronies with their environmental initiatives.
But I digress.
Blood And Gore: Making A Killing On Anti-Carbon Investment Hype
Surprise! Al Gore and his carbon credit huckstering partner David Blood, both principals at Generation Investment Management (GIM), warn in their October 30 Wall Street Journal op/ed feature of peril to fossil fuel investments due to “The Coming Carbon Asset Bubble”. They argue that such “unwise and increasingly wreck less” investment strategies pose three broad risks which will cause carbon assets to become “stranded” and lose economic value: through direct government carbon regulation; as a result of market-share losses to “already competitive” renewable technologies; and due to “sociopolitical pressures” causing carbon-intensive businesses to lose their “license to operate”.
Marketing Climate Alarm:
Of course this carbon regulation is posited upon saving the Earth based upon a “consensus within the scientific community that increasing the global temperature by more than 2oC will likely cause devastating and irreversible damage to the planet.” And where it comes to promulgating and capitalizing upon carbon-climate-crazed sociopolitical pressure, you would be hard-pressed to find two better authorities.
Gore and Blood, the former chief of Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM), co-founded London-based GIM in 2004. Between 2008 and 2011 the company had raised profits of nearly $218 million from institutions and wealthy investors. By 2008 Gore was able to put $35 million into hedge funds and private partnerships through the Capricorn Investment Group, a Palo Alto company founded by his Canadian billionaire buddy Jeffrey Skoll, the first president of EBay Inc. It was Skoll’s Participant Media that produced Gore’s feverishly frightening 2006 horror film, “An Inconvenient Truth”.

Al Gore on CNN pounding the Trump decision to get out of the Paris Climate Accord.
He actually says with a straight face he is living a carbon free lifestyle !!
Hot Air as needed
Al Gore just told the most incredibly bold-faced LIE ever!!
OH my gosh this is so amazing. In an interview on CNN, Jake Tapper actually makes Al Gore respond to Trump mocking him for flying a jet around the world while saying everyone else needs to undo their carbon footprint.
He says the stupidest thing ever.
He literally says, “I live a carbon free lifestyle to the maximum extent possible” LOL!!!
Wow, what a bold-faced liar.
full show (I think) ...

He buys carbon credits to "offset" his carbon footprint.
I havent been keeping up on him, but the Gore I remember helped come up with the carbon trading scheme [along with Enron] (meaning he probably makes money from the whole affair), and he makes money off his activism stuff. So with his activism loot and carbon scheme loot he buys carbon credits from his himself?!?
