Gore Buys Eco-Indulgences From Himself

You have to hand it to Al Gore: what he lacks in credibility he more than makes up in chutzpah. His army of Kool-Aid–guzzling climate warriors will tell you that it doesn't matter if just one of his mansions uses far more energy in a month than a normal house does all year, or if his endless jetting all over the place to preach at us leaves a carbon footprint the size of Lake Michigan. After all, Prince Albert absolves himself by purchasing eco-indulgences, aka "carbon offsets." What they won't tell you is that he buys them from himself.

Carbon offsets supposedly absolve you of the sin of using "non-green" energy. That way Al Gore and his Tinseltown acolytes can continue to hog energy with their mansions, jets, and limousines, why demanding the rest of us ride around in golf carts. They can afford to pay others to eat their eco-sins.

The swindlers who sell the offsets promise to plant trees or build windmills or think green thoughts or whatever. Not even the moonbats at the New York Times are gullible enough to believe that carbon offsets reduce carbon emissions.

Ever the expert at conservation, Gore conserves money by buying his eco-indulgences from Generation Investment Management — a company he helped found, and of which he is the chairman. It invests the money in flaky alternative energy projects that will only turn a profit with the help of the sort of coercive government support Gore is obviously trying to drum up with his global warming hoax.

So when Gore buys eco-indulgences, he isn't just buying phony absolution — he's buying an investment, the value of which will be enhanced by his War on Weather campaign. How did a guy this clever manage to flunk out of divinity school?

Link to another excellent article on "Rev. Al Gore" ...yep, just another form of nature worship with a corrupt twist.
