Gore's Green Is Nothing But Cash

As Obama pushes us ever closer to the precipice of financial ruin and closer to the massive tax scheme known as "cap and trade", Al Gore rubs his greedy palms together like the dastardly landlord of folklore. While testifying before congress in May Gore declared to Congresswoman Blackburn that, “every penny that I have made, I have put right into a nonprofit, the Alliance for Climate Protection, to spread awareness of why we have to take on this challenge.”
But all one has to do is follow the link to the Alliance For Climate Protection to learn the following:

The Alliance for Climate Protection has a highly experienced Board of Directors. The bipartisan Board has combined decades of experience in alliance–building with Wall Street, religious communities, local government, entertainment and other constituencies not traditionally engaged in environmental issues.

The Chairman of the Board, Al Gore, has been an advocate and leader for climate action for over 30 years.
As Duane Lester of All American Blogger so aptly stated:
"He gets a tax write-off for donating that money, and then directs where the money goes. Currently, they are spending $300 million on climate change propaganda to convince the naysayers that they are really at fault for global warming".

The following video spells out very concisely what is at stake for Al Gore if he succeeds in getting cap and trade enacted.

The irony is that global warming deniers are routinely accused of being in the tank - pardon the pun - of "big oil". They lie, we're told, because they don't want their oil investments to vanish. But no one questions Al Gore's motives for lying about the science to promote his own investments. It is also quite funny to hear a liberal like Al Gore ask Ms. Blackburn if she has something against being involved in business when he and his ilk have been doing everything in their power to denigrate corporations for decades.

Oh, let's pity those poor corporations who don't give a damn about you, your health, or anything else except the buck.

The same corporations who don't do anything "voluntarily" but who abuse the system.

They poison their own kids and don't care, it seems.

And yet it appears that you do believe that Al Gore actually cares about the climate.
