Vice President Al Gore show how easy to be green: He earns over $100 Million.

For Former Vice President Al Gore its easy being Green. Gore goes from $2 million in 2000 to $100 million thanks to His books, his Academy Award winning film adaptation of his best seller “An Incontinent Truth” audio books, speaking engagements. Nothing wrong with making money but Gore told Representative Marsha Blackburn(R-TN)  during a House of Representatives hearing that the money he earns from environmental issues goes into a trust. That’s not true:

From Green Hell Blog: Gore said this,”But every penny that I have made, I have put right into a non-profit, the Alliance for Climate Protection, to spread awareness about why we have to take on this challenge. And Congresswoman, if you’re, if you believe the reason I have been working on this issue for 30 years is because of greed, you don’t know me.”

Well that’s obvious Mr. Vice President

According to this March 2008 Bloomberg.com report says otherwise: Gore used $35 million to invest in hedge funds

Gore invested the money with Capricorn Investment Group LLC, a Palo Alto, California, firm that selects the private funds for clients and invests in makers of environmentally friendly products, according to a Feb. 1 securities filing. Capricorn was founded by billionaire Jeffrey Skoll, former president of EBay Inc. and an executive producer of Gore’s Oscar-winning documentary film on global warming.

So much for that  all 100% non profit trust fund.
