Over the last few years, one of the biggest mysteries in the political spectrum has been why former Vice President Al Gore keeps making a fool of himself by making disastrous climate change predictions.
Fortunately, an interesting article published by the Daily Wire provided an unexpected answer to that question. Basically, the reason why this democrat continues with the charade is because this is one of the most profitable businesses you can get into. In fact, Al Gore even collected millions in Qatari oil money.
As reported by this media outlet, a new book titled “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change” pointed out how Gore not only received an incredible amount of money but also how he became the “most lavishly” funded fossil fuel player in the modern global warming debate.
Naturally, we’re talking about a harming publication that promises to raise a huge controversy that will probably get downplayed or directly ignored by the mainstream media.
After all, the book not only represents a serious threat to the climate change activism but also to one of its most important figures.
Written by the founder of ClimateDepot.com Marc Morano, this investigation work detailed how the former vice president became one of the wealthiest men in the United States.
In its article, the Daily Wire provides some excerpts of Morano’s book that describe the unknown microcosm behind the media and political show of climate change.
In one part of his work, Morano wrote that just as many conservatives have always suspected, green organizations, universities, and professors have reaped financial benefits from the “climate panic.” After that, he pointed out that Gore “has done quite well for himself too.”
Far from being just an opinion, Morano provided an excerpt from a Bloomberg News article that revealed how the democrat disclosed in 2000 that the value of his assets totaled between $780,000 and $1.9 million.
This article detailed that this was shown in the last personal finance report Gore filed as vice president of the United States.
According to the book, Gore’s wealth had skyrocketed in an incredible way by 2007, and he had a net worth “well in excess” of $100 million by that point.
Believe it or not, Morano pointed out that MIT scientist Richard Lindzen revealed that Gore desperately wanted to become the first carbon billionaire in the world.
After that revelation, things got really shady. As noted in his book, the former vice president was so flush by 2008 that he decided to announce a $300 million campaign just to promote climate fears and its so-called solutions. Basically, he was playing the role of a con man.
Another interesting detail that Morano used was a 2012 Washington Post report that revealed how 14 green-tech firms in which the former vice president invested received or directly benefited from almost $3 million in loans, tax breaks, and grants.
Apparently, Gore received these benefits as part of then-president Barack Obama’s push to seed a U.S. renewable-energy industry with taxpayer money.
That report also explained that the former vice president clearly benefited not only from a significant resume but also from a “constellation of friends” in the investment world and in Washington, D.C.
Furthermore, Morano wrote that four years ago, Gore’s portfolio aligned perfectly with the agenda of an incoming administration and its strong plan to spend billions in stimulus funds on the alternative energy. Basically, Gore was an opportunist who played his cards brilliantly.
In the book, Morano also included the opinion of Republican Congressman Fred Upton of Michigan, who has been a ferocious critic of the former vice president’s profiting off the taxpayer funds using the connections he has in the government.
According to Morano, Upton said that Gore’s portfolio is reflective of a very disturbing pattern that those closest to Obama have been rewarded with billions of taxpayer dollars.
As reported by the Daily Wire, another interesting part in Morano’s book is an alleged opinion that Warren Buffett’s vice chairman Charlie Munger shared in a small meeting of investors last year.
Apparently, Munger said that Gore was nothing more than “an idiot” who “smoked a lot of pot” at Harvard. Also, he pointed out that the former vice president wasn’t exactly the most brilliant student.
As noted on Morano’s book, Munger also said that while Gore wasn’t exactly a genius, the interesting detail is the fact that he was still able to amass a personal fortune in the investment world.
