Everyone likes a success story, but this is one that will turn your stomach. Allow me to take you back to March 31, 2008. You remember. Don’t you? It was that year when a U.S. senator from Illinois was running for president of the United States of America. Coincidentally, it was the year Al Gore launched his “campaign against global warming”, as reported in USA Today.
Al Gore as a prophet of doom wasn’t alone. Barack Hussein Obama, the Democrat U.S. Senator from Illinois preached against our “dependency on oil” in his diatribes against “global warming”. In the below video, also from 2008, Obama says “the fossil fuels we burn are setting off a chain of dangerous weather patterns that could condemn future generations to global catastrophe“.
A gullible world rewarded Al Gore and Barack Obama with Nobel Prizes, Al Gore first on Dec 10, 2007, Obama two years later on December 10, 2009. Two Nobel Peace prizes for doing nothing. Absolutely nothing. Despite accomplishing n-o-t-h-i-n-g, these two global-warming prophets did undergo amazing transformations.
According to Bloomberg Business news, Al Gore’s personal wealth blossomed, perhaps I should say exploded, from $1,700,000 in year 2000 to over $200,000,000 after his loss to George Bush. Much of Gore’s prophet-ability in his campaign against global warming netted him tens of millions of dollars while creating a “carbon asset bubble”, according to Forbes.
At the time of his candidacy for the office of president, Barack Obama’s personal wealth was $1,800,000. As of February 2015, his personal wealth has increased 438%, that we know of.
How is it these leftists add so much wealth? Like Warren Buffet who owns the trains that carry the oil that would otherwise pass through the Keystone Pipeline, they manipulate markets using crony capitalism to enrich themselves. In a word, its coercion. Through regulations we are forced to do unnatural things with our money and our property.
My business is very much involved in the energy business, the sale of it and the conservation of it. Throughout the country municipalities, county governments, state governments and federal government impose rigid energy standards to force us to use less energy. All this “green” technology is hideously costly. This is how the leftists enrich themselves.
Meanwhile the lies continue to multiply. What lies? Barack Obama recently decried rising sea levels that threaten our military installations in the coastal areas of Virginia. While it is true the sea level appears to be rising, the reason for this apparent sea-level rise is land subsidence. The land is going down. Sea levels are not rising. The left has ceased to use the mantra of “global warming” in favor of “climate change”.
Greedy leftists replace our hard won freedoms with ever more coercion.
