AL GORE AVOIDS GREEN INVESTMENTS


The self-proclaimed prophet of green, who would like to become the first carbon billionaire, seems to be minimizing his foray into green investments.  (h/t The Reference Frame)  According to Bill Gunderson of Gunderson Capital Investment, Gore’s portfolio “has Amazon, Colgate Palmolive, eBay, Nielsen, Qualcomm, Strayer University and a smattering of stocks from biotech and health care. Not one company that makes solar panels, or windmills or biogas or electric cars. Catheters and commercial real estate, yes. Solar panels, no.”

Gore may become a billionaire through investing, but he is too shrewd to put his money where his mouth is.  But I am sure that he won’t mind his followers doing so: after all, for the foot soldiers, purity of intention is more important that filthy lucre, and fancy seaside villas are for capitalist villains.
