While Al Gore is often quick to make accusations of corporate profit among dissenters of climate change, it appears, according to a new report by the Capitol Research Center, that he himself has a vested financial interest in this debate. Comments study author, Fred Lucas: “Gore is partner in the venture capital firm Kleiner-Perkins that is putting millions of dollars into Green technology companies. Gore is also a founding partner in Generation Investment Management which is also heavily invested in Green technology companies. There is nothing wrong with Gore making a profit, per se. The question comes from the fact that his non-profit organization, Alliance for Climate Protection, is pushing legislation to create market conditions that would extremely profitable for Gore.”
