Strictly out of the goodness of his pea pickin’ Kentucky heart, Al wants to save us from ourselves like every good progressive.

The Energy Transitions Commission’s (ETC) report claims “additional investments of around $300-$600 billion per annum do not pose a major macroeconomic challenge,” which they say will help the world meet the goals laid out in the Paris agreement.

ETC is made up of energy executives, activist leaders and investment bankers, including former Vice President Al Gore, who would no doubt get a piece of the trillions of dollars they are calling for.

Really! Whoda thunkit?

But wait! There is this:

Al Gore has thrived as green-tech investor

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/decision2012/al-gore-has-thrived-as-green-tech-investor/2012/10/10/1dfaa5b0-0b11-11e2-bd1a-b868e65d57eb_story.html?utm_term=.a1f5d2670869

Just before leaving public office in 2001, Gore reported assets of less than $2 million; today, his wealth is estimated at $100 million.

Fourteen green-tech firms in which Gore invested received or directly benefited from more than $2.5 billion in loans, grants and tax breaks, part of President Obama’s historic push to seed a U.S. renewable-energy industry with public money.

Public money, which includes our private money which is stolen and becomes public until it re-enters Al and his banker buddy’s private pockets.

Same old government story on a 21st century scale.

Be seeing you
