Follow the Money
So Algore's Live Earth concert is this weekend. It has been billed as the "greenest concert ever." Besides serving snacks in recyclable containers and such, one of the main ways that Live Earth is seeking to do no environmental damage while it raises awareness about global warming is by purchasing carbon offsets for the carbon it uses. In his time in the private sector, Algore began a carbon offset company, Generation Investment Management, and he now serves on its chairman. Presumably, it stands to reason that Algore will make a killing by means of the concert he has sponsored. Maybe it's not as altruistic as it appears, huh? I'm just asking.
