Al Gore, Carbon Credits, the "Green" Scam and... Goldman Sachs?

I've never bought into the "global warming" line and sorry for being such a cliche conservative but I also don't really buy into this "carbon tax" "green energy" "save the planet" crap. The reality is that the Earth is overloaded with people - no amount of "clean energy" can really fix that fact. We're done and that's that. Shouldn't have been so inconsiderate of our planet, too late to go back now, oopsie!

Just as the stock market may be headed for doom and unwinding into a bottom like we have not seen in our lifetimes, so is the Earth pushed to the limit and ready to break. So Al Gore can suck it.

Add to this the interesting fact that Al Gore is in it for the money (with the help of our friends at Goldman Sachs, of course!) and you can see why I don't buy it. Pfft.

Via Investor's Business Daily, Al Gore's real objective exposed - should we be all that surprised to find this too reeks of Goldman? Nah:

Last Friday, Gore was the star witness at the hearings on cap-and- trade legislation before the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Blackburn asked Gore about Kleiner-Perkins, noting that at last count they "have invested about a billion dollars invested in 40 companies that are going to benefit from cap-and-trade legislation that we are discussing here today."

Blackburn then asked the $100 million question: "Is that something that you are going to personally benefit from?" Gore gave the stock answer that "the transition to a green economy is good for our economy and good for all of us, and I have invested in it but every penny that I have made I have put right into a nonprofit, the Alliance for Climate Protection, to spread awareness of why we have to take on this challenge."

Last May, we also noted that on March 1, Gore, while speaking at a conference in Monterey, Calif., admitted to having "a stake" in a number of green investments that he recommended attendees put money in rather than "subprime carbon assets" such as tar sands and shale oil.

He also is co-founder of Generation Investment Management, which sells carbon offsets that allow rich polluters to continue with a clear conscience. It's a scheme that will make traders of this new commodity rich and Bernie Madoff look like a pickpocket. The other founder is former Goldman Sachs partner David Blood.

As Stephen Milloy, author of "Green Hell," points out, Goldman Sachs is lobbying for climate change legislation and is part owner of the Chicago Climate Exchange, where carbon credits from cap and trade would be traded.

"Subprime carbon assets" bwhahahaha. That's classic. Al Gore did not invent the Internet, the Earth is screwed, and everything stinks of Goldman's not-so-invisible hand. Good times! At least we know what sort of "green" our buddy Al is in it for.

Some thoughtful links on Al Gore and the GS connection (is there no end to how far Goldman's claws reach into America? Suppose not):

10 questions to ask Al Gore

Why'd he deny the Goldman connection in the first place? ("guilt by association" isn't a good excuse when you're talking about GS, AG! WTF!)

Are "carbon swaps" the next derivative scam and did Gore engineer a crisis with Goldman's help?

What is the next "inconvenient truth" and why does it like everything else sour these days reek of Goldman Sachs?!

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

I would argue the planet isn't overloaded in general, it's just overloaded with people who overconsume. :(

He's a sexy manbearpig, ain't he? That little bastard!

Today, I demand to see Al Roker of Today doing a live weathercast from Al Gore's front lawn.

Fort Lauderdale recorded its lowest temperature on record for December 7, dropping to 40 degrees Tuesday morning. The old record was 42, set in 1841.

Well how in the fuck am I supposed to find out how warm it is outside in the land of LaVerne and Shirley? I'm betting you are getting clobbered there today 'cause today it's a cold as a well digger's ass in St. Louis.

Ah well, if the Stones can run

"These alarming findings on melting glaciers underline the importance of combating climate change globally," said Norway's environment minister, Erik Solheim, whose government supports the glacier research. "It sends a strong message to us as politicians and climate negotiators in Cancun."


I wish I were in Cancun right now yakking it up about global warming and having drink at Senor Frog's place. Saw a Japanese dude there once get completely shit faced and throw up all over the table AND his date. It was one of those chain reaction things where he vomits and then someone next to him vomits and etc. I just laughed and laughed.

In parts of Florida, hit Tuesday morning with a freeze not seen this early since 1937, some growers were already reporting severe frost burn and ruined plantings, reducing supply and driving up prices for winter vegetables amid the holiday season.

Hey, no problem. If food becomes scarce (because of Global Warming, snicker) we can put that Al Gore manbearpig creation thing on a rotisserie over some open coals and have a cabrito asado! Ole! Jeeezus, Mary and Joseph - where did you come up with that picture? If it had little goat legs on back and hooves, you'd swear Al Gore was Pan and Pan was Al Gore... Are you getting this Adrienne????? Are you getting a chuckle?????? Are you not entertained?????

4 degrees this morning in Old St. Louis with a wind chill of minus 11! I love winter as it kills all the nasty little bugs and creepy crawlers outside. It might just be my own perception but it seems to make people a little humble as well. I can just picture Green Bay fans cheering the collapse of the Metro Dome roof - take that Favre...

mmmmm, 9 degrees at 8:17 with wind gusts of 19 mph from the west north west in Old Milwaukee.... go shovel some snow and work up an appetite 'cause later we're gonna boil that Pan looking creature, dig a pit, light some coals and have a proper goat roast complete with Leinenkugels.

"A barn roof collapsed Wednesday night at an upstate New York dairy farm, trapping an unknown number of cows inside"

No problemo, Friendo - according to Al Gore - the cows can but their bovine asses together and fart their way to safety.

"This is probably the most snow I've seen in the last 34 years," joked 34-year-old Chicagoan Michael George. "I saw some people cross-country skiing on my way to the train. It was pretty wild."

"The warming is making things snowier."

Ever get the impression that Al Gore's go-to role model is the Hatter?

"Why is a raven like a writing desk?"

When Alice gives up, the Hatter admits he does not have an answer himself.

I like reading the Houston Chronicle since I've got Fam there. This in from the Chronicle - "Slick and treacherous conditions were a factor in at least 100 wrecks in four hours this morning before authorities started shutting down freeways."

I want Al Gore to go down to say Waller, Texas and look some redneck in the eye and start talking to them about "Global Warming"... How many words do you think Al can get out of his mouth before he is on his back on the ground with a snakeskin boot on his throat?

Oh and how could I forget to mention this today? I bought that little brick and stone joint I had been eyeballing…. Yeah, yeah, yeah, you can stop busting my ass… I KNOW values are going down but I’m gonna pay for a roof over my head somewhere and St. Louis never got super Bubblelicious – we’ve got a little ways to go but what the fuck? Be right or be fucking happy. I’m not getting any younger and I’m ready for a dog again and he’s coming later in spring – Bing the Younger. (R.I.P. Bing the Elder may God bless your crazy little bird hunting canine heart). So, back to my point (the Ritalin is kickin’ in good now)… Got a few things to do to the joint and had to hire a mason for some tuck pointing on the front porch and to build my outdoor BBQ/fire place on the patio. According to the neighbors, the previous owner was a Caligula type freak and had a built in hot tub during the 80’s but it deteriorated and left the patio with a small pit filled with rock. When I first saw the joint, I knew it was gonna be an outdoor fireplace. Anyhooooo, the mason can’t work today….. why? Fucking AlGore Global Warming Deposits. Yeppers, snow this morning and today with some freezing rain thrown in for good measure
