Al Gore gets a $529 million gov’t loan to build luxury hybrids – IN FINLAND!


Mr. Carbon Footprint’s arrogance only continues.  He continues to get richer off the largesse of the American Taxpayers. His personal worth continues to skyrocket off the backs of the American People. The cost of this little hybrid? About $90,000.00. And where are we doing this? Finland?

WASHINGTON — A tiny car company backed by former Vice President Al Gore has just gotten a $529 million U.S. government loan to help build a hybrid sports car in Finland that will sell for about $89,000.

According to public disclosure information, Gore was worth somewhere between $1 million and $2 million in 2000. Not quite eight years later, Gore is estimated to be worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 million. While I ordinarily would applaud such financial gains from such a short period of time, I can’t help but to question just how it happened. When you look out at what Al Gore has done, it’s evident that he figured out on a way to capitalize on the creation of Big Green while becoming the official doomsday prophet that has helped to build Big Green into the monetary powerhouse that it has become.

In any other industry this would be considered a severe conflict of interest. In essence, Al Gore has helped to create a fictitious catastrophe, then told everybody what the solutions have to be, and then put himself in a position to capitalize on the hype. It’s not only seriously dishonest, but many people and industries are going to suffer in the wake of this hype while Gore and Big Green bring in millions (and in some cases, billions) of dollars in green money.

The award this week to California startup Fisker Automotive Inc. follows a $465 million government loan to Tesla Motors Inc., purveyors of a $109,000 British-built electric Roadster. Tesla is a California startup focusing on all-electric vehicles, with a number of celebrity endorsements that is backed by investors that have contributed to Democratic campaigns.

This is not for average Americans,” said Leslie Paige, a spokeswoman for  Citizens Against Government Waste, an anti-tax group in Washington. “This is for people to put something in their driveway that is a conversation piece. It’s status symbol thing.”

    Good article, Gore continues to pimp global warming despite the increase of scientific evidence to the contrary. It is time to call out the charlatans of the political elite.

    Why, oh why, did that have to be a cardboard cutout. I think Rush would have run over the real “manpigbear” !!
