Minnesotans for Global Warming is a website that regularly skewers Al Gore, Michael Mann and the lesser gods of global warming.
As the website's motto notes, "It is stupid to politicize the weather!"
But politicizing the weather can be lucrative.
The Celebrity Net Worth site estimates Al Gore's personal fortune at $100 million. Not all of the money comes from global warming. Some of it was from his oil and mining interests.
But it is safe to say that between the books and the documentary, he has made a few million from the theory.
It sure is easy being green - and it's lucrative.
With all the federal subsidies and tax breaks out there for going green, I wonder how sensible it is for a company to fight the global warming theory?
GE, BP and now Exxon have seen the light and are going green to get the green.
Indeed. Going green is a good way to reward those who raise money for one's presidential campaign.
Billionaire George Kaiser raised money for President Obama's 2008 campaign. Kaiser and his family's tax-exempt foundation had a 35 percent stake in Solyndra, which received federal aid from the Obama administration and a presidential visit in 2010 to tout its success.
"Kaiser's role has been among the subjects of a congressional inquiry into Solyndra since the California company that received a $535 million U.S. loan guarantee filed for bankruptcy in September," Bloomberg News reported.
Solyndra made solar panels in a market flooded with them.
Wind turbines also are a drag on the market.
