Global Warming has Been Good to Al Gore: Buys $9 million Mansion in CA

Posted by Steve Markowitz on May 13, 2010

This Blog has expressed skepticism in the past about the reality of manmade global warming.  However, that is not the purpose of this posting.

Earlier this year Al Gore purchased a $9 million mansion in the luxurious hills of Montecito, California.  Many have probably not heard of this purchase since the story has only been mentioned in the Los Angeles Times and by Fox News.  It seems the mainstream media is embarrassed by their lead climate guru spending so much on a house with six fireplaces, five bedrooms, and nine bathrooms all for just Al and the wife.  That just might give the green movement a bad name so they have buried the story.

It seems that Gore is also a bit shy on the issue of his wealth.  When questioned last year by a Congressman as the House was deliberating on Cap-and-Trade legislation, Gore said:

“Every penny that I have made, I have put right into a non-profit deal, Alliance For Climate Protection, to spread awareness of why we have to take on this challenge.  And Congresswomen, if your, if, if you believe that the reason I have been working on this issue for 30 years is because of greed, you do not know me.”

Hmmm ….. , then who paid for this house Mr. Gore?

Let’s see: Gore reported in 2000 that he was worth between $1 million and $2 million.  Ten years later he buys a house worth $9,000,000 in the midst of the worst recession during his lifetime.   One reality cannot be argued: global warming has been very good to Al Gore.

    Maybe the former VP will invent a Global Warming defense claiming that his brain (and, apparently, his loins) were overheated by AGW (CO2) causing a form of temporary insanity? Bill Clinton must be smiling. Here’s the story from DRUDGE:

    Prosecutor: Al Gore was focus of 2006 sex crime inquiry in Portland Maxine Bernstein, The Oregonian

    The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office confirmed today that a woman who alleged unwanted sexual contact by Al Gore reported it to police in 2006, and the prosecutor’s office was briefed by the Portland Police Bureau in late 2006 and January 2007. “We were told the woman was not willing to be interviewed by the Portland Police Bureau and did not want a criminal investigation to proceed,’’ Multnomah County District Attorney Michael Schrunk said, in a prepared statement. Today, as the National Enquirer reported that it had interviewed a Portland masseuse who complained of unwanted sexual contact by the former vice president at the Hotel Lucia on Oct. 24, 2006…

    Right. Al Gore is the only politician that made big bucks over the last 10 years. Yeah right. What are Bush and Cheney worth these days, for instance? And where is your evidence that Al Gore is profiting from the climate crisis? If none, then it’s just a cheap shot of innuendo on your part.

    • Hi Sunny Guy. Lighten up on the defensiveness relating to Al Gore.

      This Blog has nothing against people making money. That’s what capitalism is all about, even if it’s made by selling snake-oil like Gore. But, he didn’t invent that gig anymore than he invented the Internet.

      And yes, Gore isn’t the only politician that made money after doing the people’s work. That’s unfortunately typical for many in Washington on both sides of the isle. It seems, however, that when someone on the Right makes financial killing, he or she is look at it with some jaundice. But when a Leftie makes a killing, that is merely good fortune. Sorry, but I do not drink from that Kool-Aid!

      So, what you are saying is that since Bush and Cheney profited after leaving office, all others including Gore are exonerated from scrutiny? Boy, you haven’t set your bar very high.

      Now as for Gore, he at the very least has been in a conflict position. He has made over $100 million since leaving office, mostly on that Global-warming gig. That must affect what he is willing to preach. Global Warming has sure been a Convenient Truth for Al! Now as for those two huge homes he owns, or the private jest he flies in, their carbon footprint just doesn’t matter to Al. How convenient!

      As for cheap innuendo, Al’s getting plenty of that lately, the result of his habit of calling in female masseuses late at night. I know, just another right-wing conspiracy.
