Gore's 'Carbon Offsets' Paid To Firm He OwnsTopics: Political News and commentaries
C'mon Al, shouldn't you have been telling us the whole story about your "carbon neutral" lifestyle being more publicity stunt and money making machine than a way of life for us mere mortals not privy to benefiting from the great Gore green delusion?
And while you're at it Al, shouldn't you be telling your fellow greens more about London-based Generation Investment Management?
Generation Investment Management's U.S. branch is headed by a former Gore staffer and fund-raiser, Peter S. Knight, who once was the target of probes by the Federal Election Commission and the Department of Justice.Heck, Al, not only your fellow greenies but also some of us run-of-the-mill schmucks that don't fall for your little "the sky is falling" scheme might want to get in on your money mill too!
... Gore stands to make a lot of money from his promotion of the alleged "global warming" threat, which is disputed by many mainstream scientists.

Excellent post! This complements some research that ties Gore to Michael Milken (of junk-bond infamy). Net net - are 'carbon offsets' just an updated version of Drexel Burnham Lambert's junk-bond gambit?
In effect, an 'investment vehicle' the value of which are controlled by a small group and that possess questionable liquidity?
