Al Gore wants to reverse modernity and save the world from itself through an elimination of its fossil-fuel-based energy system. During the final week of April, his newly created Energy Transitions Commission released a document setting forth a fool’s-errand pathway to “decarbonize” the world’s energy system. https://www.infowars.com/a-fools-erra...

Al Gore used “science terrorism” to get rich off global warming scam
by: JD Heyes  
Sunday, July 23, 2017
(Natural News) The issue of catastrophic climate change/global warming is perhaps the greatest scientific hoax ever perpetuated, but the big lie is relentlessly pushed by Marxist-Left hypocrites like former Vice President Al Gore.
In a column for The Daily Telegraph, Miranda Divine 
notes that what Gore and those like him, who claim some special insight into the issue, have done is essentially used scientific terrorism as a means of pushing an agenda that has made them very, very wealthy.
Gore is the creator of the fraudulent global warming flick “An Inconvenient Truth” (which won an Academy Award for Best Documentary, telling you all you need to know about the politics of Academy Awards), and now he’s produced a follow-up called “An Inconvenient Sequel,” which is every bit the scaremongering (and fact-free) screed its predecessor was.
One scene shows a crying Asian man who whines, “I feel so scared,” as Gore pats his hand in a ‘brave attempt’ to soothe his fears of the impending apocalypse. (Related: Latest climate change scare story: Rising oceans to produce “2 billion climate refugees” by the year 2100, alarmists claim.)
Divine writes:
Scaremongering is what Gore does best, and fear is the business model that has made him rich, though his every apocalyptic scenario has failed to materialize.
No truer words.
She notes further that while in Australia earlier this month to hawk his new sequel, the former Veep made the ridiculous claim that Mama Nature is “screaming” at all the ‘damage’ we damned humans are doing to the planet, you see, and that is leading to a world tumbling into “political disruption and chaos and diseases, stronger storms and more destructive floods” — if, of course, we all buy into Al Gore’s BS.
And far too many in the West have bought in. In Australia, for example, Devine writes that Labor Party members pledged that Victoria, Queensland, the ACT and South Australia would go full-on renewable energy to produce no emissions by 2050. No matter how destructive the decision is to their economies or how badly it will hit Australians in their pocketbooks and comfort zones.
“They haven’t learned the lesson from SA’s extreme green experiment with renewable energy that has produced nothing but crippling blackouts and the highest electricity prices in the world,” Divine wrote.
The Paris Climate Accords are a perfect example as well. But they are also a great example of just how bogus the human-caused “climate change/global warming” narrative really is — and how it all really is just about money, and the enrichment of the elite.
Case in point, as noted by Reuters:
The U.S. decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement means Turkey is less inclined to ratify the deal because the U.S. move jeopardizes compensation promised to developing countries, President Tayyip Erdogan said…
As reported by The National Sentinel, Turkey’s example makes it plain that the Accords were really just about extracting hundreds of billions of dollars out of the U.S. and other major economic powers’ countries, then passing it along to other countries that were going to be able to continue producing the same emissions:
The entire scheme was nothing more than a big payout, which ought to make the global warming faithful ask the question: How, exactly, does transferring wealth affect climate?
As for Gore, Divine wonders how it’s even possible for him to “show his face” 11 years after his disgracefully dishonest “documentary” featured warning after scary warning about a climate-related apocalypse that never occurred.
“Unless we take drastic measures the world would reach a point of no return within 10 years,” he told us then.
Wrong. Like, by a lot. In fact, none of what the climate change hucksters like Gore are claiming is true.
Scaring people into believing in “global warming” has been Gore’s business model for becoming very wealthy.

Blood And Gore: Making A Killing On Anti-Carbon Investment Hype
Larry Bell
Nov 3, 2013
Surprise! Al Gore and his carbon credit huckstering partner David Blood, both principals  at Generation Investment Management (GIM), warn in their October 30 Wall Street Journal op/ed feature of peril to fossil fuel investments due to “The Coming Carbon Asset Bubble”. They argue that such “unwise and increasingly wreck less” investment strategies  pose three broad risks which will cause carbon assets to become “stranded” and lose economic value: through direct government carbon regulation; as a result of market-share losses to “already competitive” renewable technologies; and due to “sociopolitical pressures” causing carbon-intensive businesses to lose their “license to operate”.
Marketing Climate Alarm:
Of course this carbon regulation is posited upon saving the Earth based upon a “consensus within the scientific community that increasing the global temperature by more than 2oC will likely cause devastating and irreversible damage to the planet.” And where it comes to promulgating and capitalizing upon carbon-climate-crazed sociopolitical pressure, you would be hard-pressed to find two better authorities.
Gore and Blood, the former chief of Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM), co-founded London-based GIM in 2004. Between 2008 and 2011 the company had raised profits of nearly $218 million from institutions and wealthy investors. By 2008 Gore was able to put $35 million into hedge funds and private partnerships through the Capricorn Investment Group, a Palo Alto company founded by his Canadian billionaire buddy Jeffrey Skoll, the first president of EBay Inc. It was Skoll’s Participant Media that produced Gore’s feverishly frightening 2006 horror film, “An Inconvenient Truth”.
In 2007, following an investigation of the movie, Sir Michael Burton, a judge in London’s High Court, ruled that it can be shown in secondary schools only if accompanied by guidance notes for teachers to balance Mr. Gore’s “one-sided” views. Judge Barton pointed out that its “apocalyptical vision” was politically partisan, and not an impartial analysis. He stated: “It is built around the charismatic presence of the ex-vice president Al Gore, whose crusade is to persuade the world of the dangers of climate change caused by global warming…It is now common ground that this is not simply a science film- although it is based substantially on science research and opinion, but it is [clearly] a political film.”
The Browning of those Green Investments:
As for taking their recent investment advice, it might be worth mentioning that some of GIM’s earlier low-carbon deals haven’t always worked out so great.
Optimistic that a Democrat-controlled Congress would pass cap-and-trade legislation Gore lobbied for, GIM and David Blood’s old GSAM firm took big stakes in the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) for carbon trading. Accordingly, CCX was poised to make windfall profits selling CO2 offsets if and when cap-and-trade was passed.  Speaking before a 2007 Joint House Hearing of the Energy Science Committee, Gore told members: “As soon as carbon has a price, you’re going to see a wave [of investment] in it…There will be unchained investment.”
After all, what better way to reduce evil carbon than to make it a profitable commodity? But unfortunately for GIM and CCX investors, trading hot air credits proved just too good to be true.
Between May of 2008 and October of 2009 the CCX market value for one metric ton of carbon plummeted from $7 per metric ton to $0.10 along with the shareholders’ investment values. Losers included the Ford Motor Company, Amtrak, DuPont, Dow Corning, American Electric Power, International Paper, and Waste Management, along with the states of Illinois and New Mexico, seven cities, and a number of universities.
By 2010, GIM approximately doubled a 9.6% stake it had purchased in Camco International Ltd., a manager of products to limit greenhouse gases. But by October of that year disaster struck again. Republicans took control of the House, dashing all cap-and-capitalize hopes along with huge profit prospects for either Camco or CCX. The latter shut down operations in November of that year.
On top of that bad news, First Solar Inc., another GIM investment, got squeezed out of the solar panel market by cheaper Chinese products. According to Bloomberg, GIM dumped its last First Solar stock at a $165.9 million loss in 2012.
The Alarming Cost of Carbon Craziness

Al Gore and David Blood not only emphasize the regulatory risk of fossil fuel investment, they have aggressively worked to ensure it. Their article provides a roadmap to disaster, including: “direct regulation on carbon led by authorities at the local, national, regional or global level; indirect regulation through increased pollution controls, constraints on water usage, or policies targeting health concerns; and mandates on renewable energy adoption and efficiency standards.” They further note that “Even the threat of impending regulation creates uncertainty for long-lived carbon-intensive assets.”
