Al Gore’s Net Worth Jumps From $2 Million in 2000 to $100 Million in 2008
http://gatewaypundit.firstthings.com/2009/04/it-pays-to-go-green-al-gores-net-worth-jumps-from-2-million-in-2000-to-100-million-in-2008/ ^

So what has Al Gore gained from his Big Green escapades?

>>According to public disclosure information, Gore was worth somewhere between $1 million and $2 million in 2000. Not quite eight years later, Gore is estimated to be worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 million.

While I ordinarily would applaud such financial gains from such a short period of time, I can’t help but to question just how it happened. When you look out at what Al Gore has done, it’s evident that he figured out on a way to capitalize on the creation of Big Green while becoming the official doomsday prophet that has helped to build Big Green into the monetary powerhouse that it has become.

In any other industry this would be considered a severe conflict of interest. In essence, Al Gore has helped to create a fictitious catastrophe, then told everybody what the solutions have to be, and then put himself in a position to capitalize on the hype. It’s not only seriously dishonest, but many people and industries are going to suffer in the wake of this hype while Gore and Big Green bring in millions (and in some cases, billions) of dollars in green money.<<

I would not be surprised to see the Living God visit some circumstances on Gore that would impoverish him.

Starting one’s own religion and appointing oneself as the primary prophet certainly does reward one an with unbelievably amount of wealth.

Gore is a perfect example of the liberal elite. It gets rich off the work of the ordinary man. It makes laws for the common herd to follow but doesn’t follow them. It gives itself special privileges that the ordinary person has to pay for.

I'll bet he has over a billion by now.

He could become the first trillionaire if all the cap n’ trade/Kyoto/Gnome Climate Alteration, etc regulations go thru.

One estimate is that it will cost around $43 trillion all told. depending on Al's cut, he could make a couple trillion.

He would have a carbon footprint big enough to crush us all!

I hear than he's working on some sort of gnome or unicorn based scam. He has a device that he invented that keep unicorns away. It works pretty well. No one has seen one near him since he had that airbrushed van in the ‘70’s
