Environmentalists claim that climate change deniers destroy the environment for profits or material gains, not caring about future generations. While that’s completely wrong and a mischaracterized assessment, it doesn’t stop hypocritical liberal elitists from getting wealthy off the backs of the boneheads that actually fall for the climate change hype. In fact, it makes them even richer, and you won’t believe the money they have made.
Earlier this week, the federal government surprisingly took down a green group that managed to take about $1.4 million from taxpayers in an energy scheme designed to prey on those who won’t look past the “global warming” deception to the facts about its minimal effects. Three of the worst offenders deserve to be called out directly for using the clueless liberals, who they pretend to protect. They take money from the misinformed, and these deceivers become increasingly wealthy.
Al Gore tops the list, although this isn’t surprising. Almost none of the over-hyped dramatic scenarios presented by Gore have actually come true. In fact, not only do we still have polar ice, the amount of ice at the poles is more now than it ever has been before, and it’s constantly hitting new records.
Gore’s wealth went from $700,000 in 2000 to an estimated net worth of $172.5 million by 2015 thanks to his environmentalist activism. Gore and the former chief of Goldman Sachs Asset Management made nearly $218 million in profits between 2008 and 2011 from a carbon trading company they co-founded. By 2008, Gore was able to put a whopping $35 million into hedge funds and other investments.
Elon Musk is the type of billionaire who liberals often rail against, while being just dumb enough to keep funding them and making them wealthy, all while crying about wage gaps and losing more of their money. It would be funny if it wasn’t so sad.
But let’s move on to liberal hero, Warren Buffet. Another billionaire that the left should claim to hate for hoarding wealth. He has also preyed upon those who don’t have the brains to read the data about “climate change” or “global warming” or whatever we are calling it this week. Buffet was instrumental in lobbying the Nevada state government to revise net-metering rules to help utilities.
That single policy change caused rival billionaire Elon Musk to lose roughly $165 million in a single day. It’s liberals attacking liberals, but they are billionaires and global warming alarmists, so all is forgiven. As long as a leftist gets their free college and single-payer healthcare, who cares about anything else?
These men represent everything liberals claim to hate: wealth, owning things, not paying their “fair share,” making money, and scamming others to do it. While these are only three of the many wealthy people getting rich off the stupidity of liberals, there are dozens more out there scamming them as well, all in the name of environmentalism.
It’s nothing new for liberals to be outed as hypocrites, and that can be seen just watching 15 seconds of a Democrat debate. But these liberals get rich by using the arm of big government and preying on the emotions of their own. So, who’s really fear-mongering?
They pad their pockets by regulating businesses and civilians, all in a fake alarmist global warming scheme that’s leaving American liberals penniless. Some men just want to watch your money burn, while they have the match in one hand and the water you think you desperately need in the other, but don’t worry, they’ll sell it to you for the right price.
