Al Gore's New Retirement Plan

Al Gore wasn't making enough on the carbon offset scam; seems like the affluent investors finally wised up that the alfafa farms in Nigeria weren't doing so well. So Al dumbed down his client base and went after the real big bucks, the bucks controlled by the US government.

Enter the corn-to-ethanol scam. Al's got his retirement accounts tied up in grain futures.

And the poorest of the poor are now the ones paying through the nose for Al's 401k.

What does Al have to say about this? According to the NY Sun, nuthin.

Mr. Gore was not available for an interview yesterday on the food crisis, according to his spokeswoman. A spokesman for Mr. Gore’s public campaign to address climate change, the Alliance for Climate Protection, declined to comment for this article.
