If you click on About Us at the top of their website it takes you to an overview page. On the left there is a list, click on Investors. On the Investors page the Company Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers is listed and at the bottom of their profile is a link to their webpage, click on that. At the bottom of their webpage note that Al Gore and his Company Generation Investment Management are partners of KPCB which is just an investment Company.
Also on HARA's web site note that their CEO has advised Obama on Global warming issues.
My question is, do you think Al Gore stands to make any money by promoting Global Warming?
I makes me wonder if his enthusiasm to halt global warming is driven by his concern for the world and mankind or by the chance for big profits from companies that stand to profit from government assistance funds.
Global warming? we have two feet of snow here and it is below freezing
we could do with a bit of global warming here, It is all a con trick to extract more money from gullible nations and put more tax on everything.jmb
It always seems to come down to the money don't it? I am sure you have heard the term Cap and Tax in regard to carbon emissions in the US. The
Government wants to install this program on Companies here.
If you read the bottom link on Maurice Strongs bio you will find this little tidbit.
"Americans should be worried by the Commission's recommendations: for instance, that some UN activities be funded through taxes on foreign-exchange transactions and multinational corporations. Economist James Tobin estimates that a 0.5 per cent tax on foreign-exchange transactions would raise $1.5 trillion annually -- nearly equivalent to the U.S. federal budget.
It also recommended that "user fees" might be imposed on companies operating in the "global commons." Such fees might be collected on international airline tickets, ocean shipping, deep-sea fishing, activities in Antarctica, geostationary satellite orbits, and electromagnetic spectrum. But the big enchilada is carbon taxes, which would be levied on all fuels made from coal, oil, and natural gas. "A carbon tax," the report deadpans, ". . . would yield very large revenues indeed." Given the UN's record of empire-building and corruption, Cato's Ted Carpenter warns: "One can only imagine the degree of mischief it could get into if it had independent sources of revenue."
Probably on a Global Warming Denial Site.
So, still no source?
Yet another unanswered question, they certainly seem to be mounting up, don't they?
Marymary, I do not remember which source originally brought it to my attention.
is a BBC account.
is a Guardian article which lists all nine problems the judge identified..
I found these and many more references in Google with "British judge" and "An Inconvenient Truth" If you want to go there and look for mention of it by a newspaper you prefer, there may be something.
To be fair, I've moved this to US politics, as, although it has global ramifications, much of the "discussions" tend to be US centric.
To be fair, most of the posts make no mention of the U.S.
Most of the Earth which some claim is warming because of people burning fuel is not the U.S.
Most of the governments pushing for limits on carbon emission are not the U.S.
The British judge who pointed out nine areas in the film where Gore falsely asserted his interpretations as if they were facts is not American.
