I know the man is getting rich off his tall tales.
Since his election defeat, apart from winning a Nobel Peace prize and an Academy Award, he’s landed numerous $175,000 speaking gigs and his stock in Google and Apple that he received as a board advisor is reportedly worth nearly $35 million. Plus he’s started a carbon credit trading company and his networth is supposedly north of $100 million!
But does anybody know how much of his fortune he is returning in order to make the world a cleaner place?
The last two Democratic Party nominees for President have come up short on the charity scale. Al Gore has been famously stingy when it comes to actually giving his own money to charities. In 1998 he was embarrassed when his tax returns revealed that he gave just $353 to charity.
Gore’s office initially defended the action, claiming that the Gores had often given “food and clothing to the homeless.”

You know its funny about this..
I try to talk to people about real issues and I get crap like.. "I dont wanna hear it", "Dude its garbage" and things like that about 9/11 government and so on. But people are so convinced that we are the blame for global warming that it isnt even funny.
I really do not understand the thought process of people. They take something that is so far out there and that is fake and turn it into something real, then when that real thing comes along they want nothing to do with it..
What the Hell is the matter with people? Really, I want what drugs they are on to not realize being taxed to breath is a good thing...
Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled BS of a life.

Global Warming is a hoax and that is the inconvenient truth that people don't want to hear, especially those who want govt. expansion.
Polar ice may disappear within 7 years?
Who's buying this?
Where's the real uncompromised scientific community?
Seriously, aren't you wondering where are they?
Data suggests this, data suggests that bla bla bla
Al Gore is an idiot!
And i'm not buying this BS!

Denying that fact is like denying that thicker jackets make you warmer. We all know thicker jackets will make you warmer than thinner jackets of the same material, there is no debate. Now, what if you knew your jacket is getting thicker and thicker every year? You can then predict the effectiveness of your jacket in the future. No matter how hot or cold the temperature gets in the future, you know how much warmer you will be in both cases. You might not care in the winter, but in the summer you will hate having a thicker jacket, and it could even harm you.
Earth's jacket is getting thicker and thicker every year because humans keep making more cars, more babies and drivers, and consuming more, and needing more power.
Denying any of what I said is ignorance at it's best.

Climate change talks enter 'important moment'
Yvo de Boer, the executive secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, told reporters both large and small countries will have to make concessions in the coming days because "there is still an enormous amount of ground to be covered if this conference is to deliver what people around the world expect it to deliver."
