Since 2000, Al Gore has replaced the crooners with his little global warming puppet show. "We have a planetary emergency," said Gore yesterday. "I know it drives some people nuts when I say that, but dammit, that’s what we face."
Gore's yearly "planetary emergency" take nets him big bucks. Gore is paid north of $175,000 a speech for delivering his "planetary emergency" presages.
Al has made the exact same claim in 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008. Since 2001, Gore's assets ballooned from just under $2 million to an estimated $100 million plus.
Fourteen of Gore's green techs raked in over "$2.5 billion in loans, grants and tax breaks, part of Obama’s push to seed a U.S. renewable-energy industry with public money."
Gore says his motivation is not greed or avarice and is offended by the suggestion. Laughing.
Oh yea. Gore did divorce Tipper and bought a beach mansion in Malibu. Makes sense, after all, when you are riding the green money train it's a helluva lot more fun to be on the beach with the silicon-breasted set than back in Tennessee with your post-menopausal, saggy-boobed ex wife shoveling snow off the driveway.
