Al Gore > Warren Buffet

Original post made by Pleasanton Parent, Pleasanton Meadows, on Oct 28, 2009

As we all know Warren Buffet is an investment powerhouse. And while I'm sure Warren Buffet profited under some derivative investments (He was probably wise enough to get out prior to their tanking), even he wasn't able to accomplish what Al Gore is on the brink of achieving. With the passing of Cap and Trade, and the promotion of Carbon Credits as a Financial investment vehicle, as well as their derivative products, Al Gore will have created a demand and product literally out of thin air. Their is no IP for this product that requires legal fees to protect, there are no competitors, there are no manufacturing costs, there are no labor costs, no benefit costs, no nothing......Al Gore has accomplished creating the perfect product. Profit Margins like whoa! The icing on the cake of course is that Cap and Trade derivatives are being promoted months after the collapse of the derivative market, and the ensuing economic collapse.

Well done good sir, well done.

All this to prey on gullible people's guilt over an imagined issue, also created out of thin air (or is it CO2?).
There's a sucker born every day, and many are espousing the religion of 'climate change'.

Climate change IS happening. Just like it has happened for billions of years in the earth's history. Ice ages come and go and have shaped the very land that we live on. Perhaps we are being a bit conceded when we want to blame ourselves for the "rise" of recent temperatures.

I quote rise because at first it was global warming, but sense the earth has been cooling for many years, we now have to call it climate change, so that no matter what happens, humans are responsible.

It also seems strange that over 99% of all species on the earth are extinct, but yet if one goes extinct now, its all the fault of humans. Are we to blame for some thing? Of course! But you must balance everything, not just blame humans for e4verything.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
