Here's how the mafia extorts money:
Say you have a restaurant. The mafia has a trash removal service and a laundry.
You prefer to use someone else's trash removal service.
You prefer to use someone else's laundry for your tablecloths.
Someone comes by your restaurant and "encourages" you to use the mafia's incredibly expensive trash and laundry service. Otherwise, your restaurant will have a fire.
Here's how Al Gore, The Goracle of Music City Tennessee, winner of the freakin' Nobel Prize, winner of Oscars, Grammys, etc., extorts money:
Say you want to build a new coal-fired power plant. And Al Gore has a $5 billion company called Generation Investment Management.
There are currently no excessive requirements for "carbon capture" on coal-fired power plants.
Generation Investment Management, has a "strategic alliance" with Gore's other bedfellows at Kleiner Perkins. Both of these outfits specialize in "carbon capture", "emissions capture", "perpetual motion", etc. (Al Gore's previous scams can be viewed by hitting the Al Gore label at the bottom of this post.)
Next, Al Gore appears at something called "The Clinton Global Initiative", and encourages young people to engage in ACTS OF CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE "to prevent the construction of new coal plants that do not have carbon capture and sequestration."
In other words, buy Al Gore's weather-changing, rain-making, hurricane-stopping equipment, or he's gonna shut you down. Through illegal means. And he's gonna encourage kids to do the dirty work.
Al Gore would have to evolve for billions of years to rise to the level of pond scum.
