Cap-And-Trade: Al Gore’s Cash Cow

April 30, 2009

Today’s lead editorial in Investor’s Business Daily about Al Gore’s profiteering at consumer/taxpayer expense mentions Steve Milloy’s new book, Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Control Your Life and What You Can Do to Stop Them.

As IBD points out:

Gore’s altruism claim [during last week’s congressional hearing] is phony. According to a March 6 Bloomberg report, Gore invested $35 million of his own money not in green nonprofits, but with the very profitable Capricorn Investment Group LLC, a Palo Alto, Calif., firm that directs clients to green investments and invests in makers of environmentally friendly products.

    Hmm,doing well while doing good? I would think you rock-ribbed capitalist types would love this. Hypocrisy knows no bounds among your type.

    An example of the same kind of fear-mongering that you accuse of Gore spreading is found in the last line of the article, “Gore has not taken a vow of poverty even as he advocates legislation that will push millions into it” – a completely unsupported statement. The question should not be “who will benefit” but rather, “will it do any good” for people and the planet. Ad hominem attacks divert attention away from reasoned, healthy democratic debate.
