Al Gore stands to make hundreds of millions of dollars in "green" technology, and I don't begrudge him success. Capitalism works when you provide a needed product or service to the market. The problem is that Al Gore's success isn't coming from needed products or services, but rather from his political connection, as he connives, cajoles, and schemes to have his buddies in the government force us to use Al Gore-approved solutions to non-existent problems. That's not capitalism, it's shameless profiteering, and hypocritical to boot. I wonder if all those lefty enviromentalists who decry any opposition to their agenda as "oil-company shills" will notice just how much Al Gore stands to profit from their sheep-like support?
