Climate Alarmism = Big bucks

Climate Alarmism = Big bucks

Before Greta Thunberg the High Priest of the Climate Alarm Cult was Al Gore. He told us all that the “point of no return would be back in 2016. And here are nine more of Al Gore’s guilt/fear producing predictions that never materialised:

  1. Rising Sea Levels Threatening Coastal Cities and Islands
  2. Increased Tornadoes
  3. New Ice Age in Europe
  4. South Sahara Drying Up
  5. Massive Flooding in China and India
  6. Drastic Loss of Arctic Ice
  7. Polar Bear Extinction
  8. Dramatic Rise in Global Temperature Due to CO2
  9. Katrina a Foreshadow of Future Increase in Hurricanes

But spreading these fantasies made Al the first “carbon billionaire.” In just 7 years between 2000 and 2007, Gore’s assets soared 50-fold from an estimated $780,000–$1.9 million to “well in excess” of $100 million. Gore used his climate panic lobbying to sway the government to invest in the economic sectors he was poised and ready to profit from.

By 2008, Gore put $300 million into a campaign to promote climate fears while offering carbon reduction solutions that benefited the firms he was invested in.

When the sympathetic Obama Administration introduced a “renewable energy” solution for the economy, fourteen of the tech firms Gore was invested in had received and/or benefited from over $2.5 billion in loans, grants, and tax breaks. Nice work if you can get it!
