Who profits?

Look for the money in global warming

Wow, this article exaggerates.

There's an elephant in global warming's living room that few in the mainstream media want to talk about: the creators of the carbon credit scheme are the ones cashing in on it.

The two cherub like choirboys singing loudest in the Holier Than Thou Global Warming Cathedral are Maurice Strong and Al Gore.

This duo has done more than anyone else to advance the alarmism of man-made global warming.

With little media monitoring, both Strong and Gore are cashing in on the lucrative cottage industry known as man-made global warming.

Strong is on the board of directors of the Chicago Climate Exchange, Wikipedia-described as "the world's first and North America's only legally binding greenhouse gas emission registry reduction system for emission sources and offset projects in North America and Brazil."

Gore buys his carbon off-sets from himself--the Generation Investment Management LLP, "an independent, private, owner-managed partnership established in 2004 with offices in London and Washington, D.C." of which he is both chairman and founding partner.

Gore doesn't "buy" his credits, they are provided to him as an employee.

But there is no doubt that both men are profiting handsomely selling doom and gloom. That in itself wouldn't be so bad if they weren't fudging the figures and trying to quell dissent,

Follow the money.

And as I keep reminding people, a good part of the Kyoto Protocol was structured to let Enron sell pollution and carbon credits, just as they did energy credits. We all know how that ended up, it could only be successful only as long as the Department of Energy and the Justice Department were willing to overlook severe irregularities. Enron was as much a product of the Clinton Administration as midnight basketball games and peace between Palestine and Israel.

We know how those ended up, too.
