Al Gore Amassed a $330 Million Climate Fortune by Terrifying Everyone

Al Gore, former Vice President and loser in the 2000 presidential election, has spent his entire post-political career warning everyone who will listen about the imminent death of the earth due to global warming (now known as climate change because it somehow is better).

Al’s 2006 documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth”, earned $49 million worldwide. It catapulted him into the top ranks in climate hysterics and he has never looked back. He travels to meet people around the globe to spread his truth.

He’s in Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum.

Are you unsure if he is doing this to prove his belief or because he really cares about you? We can’t understand his thoughts, but one thing is certain: Al Gore has been very, very generous to climate change. He was valued at $1.7 million at the end of the vice presidency. However, he now has a fortune of $330 million, houses in Virginia, California, and Tennessee, as well as a $2 million per month figurehead position at Generation Investment Management green-energy fund that he co-founded with David W. Blood, former Goldman Sachs managing director.

Two conclusions are possible after hearing this news: 1) I should have been an activist for climate change. 2) Hunter Biden is nothing compared to this guy.

Why would Gore purchase a massive oceanfront home in Montecito, which is flood-prone, if he was so concerned about rising waters? The same question could be asked of Barack Obama, the former president who paid $12 million to get a waterfront view on Martha’s Vineyard.

Daily Mail says that Gore also has other properties.

Gore’s family-owned land in Tennessee for generations. His Nashville mansion is worth $7.5 million. Oprah’s waterfront home in Montecito is worth $ 13 million. His Virginia home, which he calls his neighbor, is worth $3 million. As is his apartment in San Francisco’s St. Regis Building.

He is not sure where he got all of this money. He holds a stake in the $36 billion Generation Investment Management Fund, approximately $80 million in stock in companies like Apple and Google, as well as a salary paid by Apple as a member of its compensation committee. He is paid $200,000 per public speaking engagement. He also advises companies on “Going Green” for unspecified (but likely huge) fees.

You can see how each of the suggestions in the video above would be a financial benefit to Gore and Generation Investment Fund.

Do you remember Al Gore’s utility bill, ABC News does. After “An Inconvenient Truth” won an Oscar in 2007, Gore was embarrassed by revelations that he spent nearly 221,000 kilowatt hours to power his 20-room house. This is more than 20 times the national average. If you want to be a climate expert, it might be wise to turn down the AC.

Although Mr. Gore is sometimes called Algore, or Al Bore by some, he has an impressive knack for making this existential crisis monetizable. He is here in Davos Wednesday, delivering an unhinged talk about “rain bombs” and “boiling seas”.

It doesn’t matter that Al Gore’s predictions didn’t come true, Florida is still high above the ocean, and Mt. The Kilimanjaro summit is still 100 feet high, but that hasn’t stopped Al Gore from making a fortune convincing people to believe that their parents destroyed this world.

His work has largely resulted in an explosion of utility bills for those who don’t have $2,000,000 a month from a green fund.
