Al Gore is Lying Low - for good reason...

Al Gore Is Lying Low -- for Good Reason

Quote:Maybe Al Gore's been advised by legal counsel to lie low. He may be the leader of the anthropogenic global warming (AGW) movement, but he's not defending it in public, not even when it's falling apart and his new fortune is based upon it.


Mr. Gore and his financial backers earned millions of dollars in start-up "green" companies and carbon trading schemes. If the scam worked, he could've become the first "carbon billionaire."


"What goes up can fall down" applies to ill-gotten gains in the stock market or "carbon trading" schemes. In such schemes, it's foreseeable that trusting investors will (a) not only get hurt when the scam collapses, but they'll also (b) pursue legal remedies and sue him for fraud.

but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

It'll be interesting to see how pension funds play out in this respect.
So many are invested in the green agenda (ie Dunscombe - BBC pension funds),
and so few of the people who's pensions they are realise this.
They are in for a shock come retirement, or rather not..
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed
(and hence clamorous to be led to safety)
by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

H. L. Mencken.  

The hobgoblins have to be imaginary so that
"they" can offer their solutions, not THE solutions.

I will be amazed that it pass here because a lot of democrats are worried about the voters at home,who have made it clear they think it stinks.
It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.

It would not be the first time something went through against public opinion.

Incidentally over here on the news this morning,
Beeb warning of lots of companies possibly going out of business due to pension fund deficits....
