Posted on 10/04/2012 12:21:15 PM PDT by Lorianne
Gore's company files a quarterly report with the SEC that tells a different story about the 30 stocks in its portfolio. His company's public investments in wind, solar, biomass and other alternative energy to combat climate change are practically non-existent.
But his portfolio is top-heavy in high-tech, medical instruments, and even more pedestrian investments in companies such as Amazon(AMZN), eBay(EBAY), Colgate Palmolive(CL), Nielsen(NLSN), Strayer University(STRA), and Qualcomm(QCOM).
He is also big in China, with stakes in a big Chinese travel agency, CTrip, and China's largest medical equipment manufacturer, Mindray Medical.
And if you want a piece of the natural gas pipeline game -- heavily dependent on the environmentally suspect fracking -- you can find that in Gore's portfolio as well with Quanta Services(PWR).
Generation Investment even had a piece of Staples(SPLS) at one point -- but that was before anyone realized that was Mitt Romney's love child.
Not an Apple(AAPL) to be found, despite the fact that Gore sits on its board of directors. But Generation Investment at one time did have a piece of General Electric(GE) and Procter & Gamble(PG) and that global warming game-changer, PayChex(PAYX).

When fat Al pulls out, the con is over.
I hope this thick-headed simpleton walks far enough.
