A group of executives who want to fight global warming has published a new report calling for countries to spend up to $600 billion a year over the next two decades to boost green energy deployment and energy efficiency equipment.
The Energy Transitions Commissions (ETC) report claims additional investments of around $300-$600 billion per annum do not pose a major macroeconomic challenge, which they say will help the world meet the goals laid out in the Paris agreement.
ETC is made up of energy executives, activist leaders and investment bankers, including former Vice President Al Gore, who would no doubt get a piece of the trillions of dollars they are calling for.
ETCs goal is to accelerate change towards low-carbon energy systems that enable robust economic development and limit global warming. ETCs report comes out as the Trump administration considers whether or not to stay party to the Paris agreement, which went into effect in 2016...
Thats a $15 trillion price tag to theoretically limit future global warming.
I say let him. Spend all you like Al.
Anything less than $20 Trillion just won’t do
I had no idea that Gore had that kind of money.
Translation: Al Gore wants to get richer.
Too late. We’ve already passed the “tipping point”.
He gets that fabulous wealth from his royalties for inventing the Internet.
Here you go, Algore, I'll send you 14 more tomorrow.
I only want a couple million to be able to spend my time golfing, and sucking up sun rays....
I guess we call all ask for something
What a gigantic con.
Jollas big brother wanted a pony for Christmas in 1962, he is still waiting too.
Come on! He’s only asking for a quarter of the world’s wealth. That’s not too much to ask. Thing is, when you look at it like that, 1/4 of the world wealth, you see it for what it really is, is a redistribution.
Spend your OWN money, you damned fool.
That’s a hundred trillion.
You should get 85 trillion back in change.
all gore is richer then I thought he was. 12 trillion of his own money wow.....oh I am mistaken he want you to pay him and his friends 12 trillion to fight global warming
Gore needs to spend that kind of money on Nutrisystem...he has become a greasy looking fat phuk and the mere sight of him turns my stomach, let alone having to listen to him yammer in his self-absorbed holier than thou diction.
Some light editing was necessary.
Gore is no longer in government.
If he spends any money, it will be his own.
Al Gore: “I invented global warming fraud.”
