Al Gore buys a new mega-estate from which to criticize excessive energy consumption

Financial Post, May 6, 2010

What is a multi-multi-millionaire Nobel Prize winner and environmental super-crusader to do with the riches that keep piling up from his international mission to save the planet?

If you’re Al Gore, you spend a chunk of it on yet another mega-home, this one in Montecito, California, a pleasant community for really, really rich people along the Pacific Coast near Santa Barbara.

The Los Angeles Times reported recently:

Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, have added a Montecito-area property to their real estate holdings, reports the Montecito Journal.

The couple spent $8,875,000 on an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, a real estate source familiar with the deal confirms. The Italian-style house has six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

This makes four mega-homes for the Gores, who have made vast amounts of money urging people to reduce the amount of energy they consume. It’s safe to say approximately everyone in the world (give or take a plutocrat) has fewer mega-homes and uses less energy than the Gores. Nine bathrooms? Is that because it’s so far from one end of the house to the other that Mr. Gore’s bladder can’t hold out? And six fireplaces: because in California, unlike, say, Canada, it gets cold in the winter, and the Gore’s need six fireplaces. Five wouldn’t be enough. Plus fountains. You can’t have enough fountains, especially as they consume no energy at all. The water just spouts into the air of its own volition.

Professor Manuel, you are being far too polite. Gore et al, have financially from Carbon Trading and clean or green energy profitted, in the name of preventing dramatic climate change that will cause havoc around this planet.

The UN IPCC solution was to a global governmental governance, to ideology to tax and fine industrial advanced countries to pay for climate change they caused in other undeveloped countries.
Logically, why could industrialised countries also cause climatic damage to also other industrialized countries? Only undeveloped countries.

The whole ideology of AGW is to gain monetary values on carbon trading without reason.

CO2 does not change the climate. And that is the big lie.

The sad fact is that “science” became a tool of propaganda about the time the first lunar samples became available for analysis in 1969.

The motives of those seeking to form a totalitarian world government were probably good: To protect the world from destruction by nuclear warfare.

I was a young scientist then, wondering why NASA scientists could not see evidence that simple solar mass fractionation enriched lightweight elements at the solar surface and lightweight isotopes of each element in the solar wind material implanted in lunar soils and breccias.

Later from 1995 until 1998, NASA hid data from the Apollo Mission to Jupiter that confirmed mass fractionation in the Sun ["Isotopic ratios in Jupiter confirm intra-solar diffusion", Meteoritics & Planetary Science 33, A97 (1998) paper 5011]:

Climategate finally exposed the international alliance of scoundrels that I had unknowingly struggled against for almost my entire research career!

Postscript: Here is a brief summary of scientific findings that NAS, NASA and the UN’s IPCC have tried to avoid:

1. “Neutron repulsion is responsible for the sun shining.”

2. “The Sun’s origin, composition and source of energy.”
