Yeah, I would say that the fellow qualifies. a) His Generation Investment Management firm was largely established by Goldman Sachs investors and 7 of his chief partners are actually from Goldman (they teamed together to start the Chicago Climate Exchange). b) 14 green tech firms in which Gore invested in received and/or directly benefited from more than $2.5 billion in loans, grants, and tax breaks from Obama's renewable energy initiative. c) He owns a 20 room, 8 bathroom mansion in Tennessee (exclusively powered by fossil fuels) and a multi-million dollar luxury condo in San Francisco (Tipper got the second mansion - valued at $9 million - in Santa Barbara). d) He's a senior investment partner in one of the world's most successful venture capital firms, Kleiner Perkins. e) He's tight with many folks in the Obama administration; climate change czar, Carol Browner, and Jonathan Silver who spearheads the clean energy loan program, for example (the latter having helped Mr. Gore raise some cash). f) Gore's investment into green energy coincided perfectly with the government's largest investment ever into green technology ($80-90 billion). g) Generation Investment Management's earnings quadrupled from 2008 to 2009. h) One company that the firm invested in (Johnson Controls) received $300 million in direct aid from the federal government. i) Mr. Gore sold his cable television network, Current TV, to Qatar owned al Jezeera for a profit of some $70 million AND he snuck it in just prior to his taxes going up.
