Gore Carbon Credit Phony - Updated

Our distinguished ex-Vice President Albert Gore, Jr. has been proven to be a phony. Not for the first time. Gore has been a consistent scold for years.
Global warming is caused by you, yes, I am talking to YOU. You have to drive less and get a smaller car. No, ride with someone else. Take the bus. YOU have to consume less. Turn down the heat in your home. YOU are the problem. YOU MUST CUT BACK.
The Tennessee Center for Policy Research discovered that the utility bills for one of his homes, his Nashville mansion, are 20 times the average American family home's - electric and gas. Twenty times. How about the other?
The average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year, according to the Department of Energy. In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh—more than 20 times the national average. Last August alone, Gore burned through 22,619 kWh—guzzling more than twice the electricity in one month than an average American family uses in an entire year. As a result of his energy consumption, Gore’s average monthly electric bill topped $1,359. [This is one home in Nashville, TN. He also has homes in Carthage, TN and in the Washington, DC area.]
How do you explain that, Albert Gore, Jr.?

Well... Of course... The rules apply to you, not to me. You are the problem. I am powerful, so I write the rules. I don't have to follow them.

No, they don't say it. Gore's spokesperson found an alibi.
This doesn't matter because Gore purchases carbon credits to offset his family's excessive energy use. Through a company called Global Investment Management.
Riehl World View investigates and finds the usual. Gore set up a way to make money off his Global Warming scare.
Former Vice President Al Gore has built a Green money-making machine capable of eventually generating billions of dollars for investors, including himself, but he set it up so that the average Joe can't afford to play on Gore's terms.
Here is how it works: Gore sells carbon credits to himself from the company he set up and is an owner of. And you can't do the same, because it is set up for high net-worth individuals, not peons like you and me. Naa naa! Tip to Rush. Update British television is going to show "The Great Global Warming Swindle" Thursday March 8. ISE - UK has the story:
The programme, to be screened on Channel 4 on Thursday March 8, will see a series of respected scientists attack the "propaganda" that they claim is killing the world’s poor. Even the co-founder of Greenpeace, Patrick Moore, is shown, claiming African countries should be encouraged to burn more CO2.
And Mark Steyn takes on Albert Gore, Jr.: Stop me if you've heard this before, but the other day the Rev. Al Gore declared that "climate change" was "the most important moral, ethical, spiritual and political issue humankind has ever faced.'' Ever. I believe that was the same day it was revealed that George W. Bush's ranch in Texas is more environmentally friendly than the Gore mansion in Tennessee.
