Gore's 'Carbon Offsets' Paid to Firm He Owns(Well now, isn't that special.)
World Net Daily ^ | March 2, 2007 | staff

Posted on 03/03/2007 6:52:00 AM PST by kellynla

Al Gore defends his extraordinary personal energy usage by telling critics he maintains a "carbon neutral" lifestyle by buying "carbon offsets," but the company that receives his payments turns out to be partly owned and chaired by the former vice president himself.

Gore has built a "green money-making machine capable of eventually generating billions of dollars for investors, including himself, but he set it up so that the average Joe can't afford to play on Gore's terms," writes blogger Dan Riehl.

Gore has described the lifestyle he and his wife Tipper live as "carbon neutral," meaning he tries to offset any energy usage, including plane flights and car trips, by "purchasing verifiable reductions in CO2 elsewhere."

But it turns out he pays for his extra-large carbon footprint through Generation Investment Management, a London-based company with offices in Washington, D.C., for which he serves as chairman. The company was established to take financial advantage of new technologies and solutions related to combating "global warming," reports blogger Bill Hobbs.

(Story continues below)

Generation Investment Management's U.S. branch is headed by a former Gore staffer and fund-raiser, Peter S. Knight, who once was the target of probes by the Federal Election Commission and the Department of Justice.

Hobbs points out Gore stands to make a lot of money from his promotion of the alleged "global warming" threat, which is disputed by many mainstream scientists.

"In other words, he 'buys' his 'carbon offsets' from himself, through a transaction designed to boost his own investments and return a profit to himself," Hobbs writes. "To be blunt, Gore doesn't buy 'carbon offsets' through Generation Investment Management – he buys stocks."

As WND reported, Gore, whose film warning of a coming cataclysm due to man-made "global warming" won two Oscars, has a mansion in the posh Belle Meade area of Nashville that consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year, according to the Tennessee Center for Policy Research, citing data from the Nashville Electric Service.

The think tanks says since the release of Gore's film, the former presidential candidate's energy consumption has increased from an average of 16,200 kilowatt-hours per month in 2005, to 18,400 per month in 2006.

I read about this in the WSJ. I think Gore set up his company that sells carbon offsets to raise political $ from Hollywood. What a farce.

I think I'll sell carbon offsets. I can guarantee, when you buy my offset, there will be no more carbon in the world when you die than when you were born. And, for a small premium, I can guarantee no more carbon in the Universe when you die.

The truth about Gore's Oscar. The following excerpt was taken from an email received from W Ketchup.

Eagle Bridge, NY — March 1, 2007 — On Sunday, February 25, failed presidential candidate Al Gore’s documentary about global warming, An Inconvenient Truth, won an Oscar for best documentary. According to the NY Daily News, fewer than 300 people were eligible to vote in the documentary category for the award. In his movie, Gore claims that production of carbon-dioxide from human energy use will cause devastating changes to the Earth’s atmosphere within 10 years.

IMHO this guy Gore is in need of some serious psychiatric help.

I have yet to see this mentioned on the news, even Fox. O'Reilly has had several rants about Gore's energy use but has yet to mention this. This is the big story here.

I see income potential here. I am, at this time, doing the necessary paper work to setup a carbon trading company. I am sure that moon bats will be tearing the doors off trying to purchase carbon offset certificates. Wow, to think until a few days ago I thought this global warming was just another crack pot idea, I fully support it, want more of it. I see income....lots of it.

Al Gore defends his extraordinary personal energy usage by telling critics he maintains a "carbon neutral" lifestyle by buying "carbon offsets," . . .

This whole "carbon offset" mantra is a lot of crap. If Al Gore really believed that climate change is a problem and that human activity is part of the problem, he'd reduce his "extraordinary personal energy usage" and buy the "carbon offets" ANYWAY.

This is beginning to get close to my suspicions.

I suspect that somewhere under all the carbon credit hoopla is a buried tax credit or benefit. Gore some how has converted his personal electric/energy expense to a revenue generating asset via the tax code or some other government program.

It will be a delicious scandal if he buys the carbon credits from self owned Brit company that gets the benefit from the UK parliment.

Rush Limbaugh played a recording yesterday narrated by Charlton Heston discussing the earth and its violent geologic history. It was fascinating! You would have to hear the recording though, to get the full impact.



Charlton Heston Reads Crichton on Our Arrogance
March 2, 2007




BEGIN TRANSCRIPT
RUSH: Here's Dan in Springport, Michigan. Welcome, sir, to Open Line Friday on the EIB Network.

CALLER: Hi, Rush. Thank you.

RUSH: You bet.

CALLER: In the past you’ve played a speech from Charlton Heston in which he speaks about how impossible it is for humans to destroy the earth. With all of the talk of global warming, I was hoping sometime you could play that again.

RUSH: Yeah. Your call has been on the board for a while. We had a chance to find it. What it actually is, I think, is a forward or an intro in an early chapter in a Michael Crichton book. I think it's from Jurassic Park. Charlton Heston called here one day and asked to read it on the air -- and, you know, when Moses calls you and is really passionate about something and wants to read the tablets to you, you get out of the way and do it.

CALLER: That's right.

RUSH: We have it. We've kept it. It's in our archives. Thanks, Dan, for the call and the reminder about that. We have so many things in our archives, it's impossible for all of us to remember everything that's there, but this really is powerful, and it goes great today with all of this hysteria on global warming and destroying the planet. Here is Charlton Heston from the opening chapters of Jurassic Park as written by Michael Crichton.

HESTON: You think man can destroy the planet? What intoxicating vanity! Let me tell you about our planet. Earth is four-and-a-half-billion-years-old. There's been life on it for nearly that long, 3.8 billion years. Bacteria first; later the first multicellular life, then the first complex creatures in the sea, on the land. Then finally the great sweeping ages of animals, the amphibians, the dinosaurs, at last the mammals, each one enduring millions on millions of years, great dynasties of creatures rising, flourishing, dying away -- all this against a background of continuous and violent upheaval. Mountain ranges thrust up, eroded away, cometary impacts, volcano eruptions, oceans rising and falling, whole continents moving, an endless, constant, violent change, colliding, buckling to make mountains over millions of years. Earth has survived everything in its time.
It will certainly survive us. If all the nuclear weapons in the world went off at once and all the plants, all the animals died and the earth was sizzling hot for a hundred thousand years, life would survive, somewhere: under the soil, frozen in arctic ice. Sooner or later, when the planet was no longer inhospitable, life would spread again. The evolutionary process would begin again. Might take a few billion years for life to regain its present variety. Of course, it would be very different from what it is now, but the earth would survive our folly, only we would not. If the ozone layer gets thinner, ultraviolet radiation sears earth, so what? Ultraviolet radiation is good for life. It's powerful energy. It promotes mutation, change. Many forms of life will thrive with more UV radiation. Many others will die out. You think this is the first time that's happened? Think about oxygen. Necessary for life now, but oxygen is actually a metabolic poison, a corrosive glass, like fluorine.

When oxygen was first produced as a waste product by certain plant cells some three billion years ago, it created a crisis for all other life on earth. Those plants were polluting the environment, exhaling a lethal gas. Earth eventually had an atmosphere incompatible with life. Nevertheless, life on earth took care of itself. In the thinking of the human being a hundred years is a long time. Hundred years ago we didn't have cars, airplanes, computers or vaccines. It was a whole different world, but to the earth, a hundred years is nothing. A million years is nothing. This planet lives and breathes on a much vaster scale. We can't imagine its slow and powerful rhythms, and we haven't got the humility to try. We've been residents here for the blink of an eye. If we're gone tomorrow, the earth will not miss us.

RUSH: That's the key: We haven't the humility.

This wraps up this whole global warming argument. We so lack in humility -- and it's a contradiction, too. On the one hand, the environmentalist wackos consider us irrelevant. We're no more important than the average rat or dog or insect, and in the other moment we are so powerful and we're so negative and we are so destructive that we, humans, are destroying the planet. Don't get confused. Global warming people, they're not worried about what it will do to humanity. That's not the way they pitch it. They pitch it that the world, the fragility of our climate is in crisis. Of course, Charlton Heston, reading from Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park, puts this in a great perspective. In fact, that passage is one of the things that helped form my whole thinking on the concept of the complexity of all of this that is our planet and the impotence that we really have to do anything about it. The idea that by improving our standards of living, that those characteristics of our existence will destroy us, is, frankly, just absurd. I contend you cannot believe in God and believe what the global warming crowd believes. You can't. The two do not go hand in hand. You have to actively not believe in God and believe in something else as a replacement, in order to hold this catastrophic climate crisis view that they all have.

What upsets me most about this was that I just realized what a beatiful operation carbon credits is just 2 days before this story broke. All you have to do is set up a website form an LLC, buy some useless bottomland to plant saplins on and watch the liberals money roll in!.
Heck, I imagine you could landscape your own residence with this scam legally if you wanted to.

Now everyone is getting hip to it being a scam

While Al Bore pontificates, the hypocrite profits from his own scam.

I'm sure it goes much deeper than this. After all, there is no controlling legal authority! When it comes to Owlgore it's like peeling back layers of an onion....scams on top of scams on top of scams....his whole family is one huge scam.

Rush was talking about GWB's house in Crawford the other day. 4000 sq ft, geothermal heating and cooling, etc. It uses roughly 25% of the energy consumed by an average house and it was built long before it was in vogue to do so.

By contrast, Owlgores house in Nashville is 20,000 sq ft, uses more energy in one month than the average house uses in a year. His heated pool alone uses more gas to heat per year than I use to heat my home in two years.

Who's the real environmentalist here?

Run, Al, run. Pretty please?

Gore has described the lifestyle he and his wife Tipper live as "carbon neutral," meaning he tries to offset any energy usage, including plane flights and car trips, by "purchasing verifiable reductions in CO2 elsewhere."

What exactly is "verifiable reductions in CO2" ????

Are the Windmill Farms??

Solar panel Farms??

A certificate ??

Or is this all just a scam like the Dot Com Companies in the 90's

Where does he buy these reductions? From dead people? People in third world countries who don't even have electricity?

And if he can buy reductions (which doesn't actually involve money), why can't we?
