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.
