Self-description: The Alliance for Climate Protection is a unique single-purpose organization committed to igniting public action to help solve the climate crisis.

Actual: The founder and current chairman of the alliance is former US Vice President Al Gore. His radical activist zealots work to eliminate fossil fuels from America's energy mix. Extremely intolerant of any who doubt or challenge their beliefs in human-caused weather. The Alliance aims to "persuade people of the importance, urgency and feasibility of adopting and implementing effective and comprehensive solutions for the climate crisis".

Al Gore's relationships are mapped on Muckety.

Al Gore Connections:

Generation Investment Management LLP (GIM) is a London-based investment management firm with an investment style that blends traditional equity research with a focus on sustainability factors, including "social and environmental responsibility" and "corporate governance."
Al Gore is chairman of Generation, and David Blood previously chief executive of failed Goldman Sachs Asset Management is CEO. The pair has given the company its nickname, "Blood and Gore." Generation Investment Management LLP is authorized and regulated by the Financial Services Authority in the UK. Gore is reputed to be making over $100 million from this business. but that cannot be verified.

Generation Investment Management LLP relationships are mapped on Muckety.

Programs: The Alliance for Climate Protection operates a three-year, $300 million campaign aimed at mobilizing Americans to push for aggressive reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. This campaign is one of the most ambitious and costly public advocacy campaigns in U.S. history.

Repower America: This is a project of the Alliance for Climate Protection, based on the speech on July 2008 by Al Gore. The idea is energy efficiency + renewable generation + Unified Smart Grid = 100% clean electricity and clean plug-in cars. Al Gore claims that economists across the spectrum  agree that large and rapid investments in a jobs-intensive infrastructure initiative is the best way to revive the economy in a quick and sustainable way. In fact economists consider it a diversion from fossil fuels that amounts to energy suicide for America.

The We Campaign: nonprofit project being conducted by the Alliance for Climate Protection with the ultimate goal of ending global warming. In August 2008, the We Campaign released a television advertisement demanding that American leaders give the American people "truly clean energy" within ten years.

The We Campaign relationships are mapped on Muckety.

Reality Coalition: The Alliance for Climate Protection, League of Conservation Voters, National Wildlife Federation, Natural Resources Defense Council and Sierra Club launched the Reality Coalition, a national grassroots and an aggressive multimillion-dollar advertising campaign, supposedly "to change the public perception of clean coal," but in fact an attack to destroy President Barack Obama's clean coal initiative, which is stated in the White House Agenda (http://www.whitehouse.gov/agenda/energy_and_environment/), which clearly says:

Create Millions of New Green Jobs

  • Develop and Deploy Clean Coal Technology.
  • Prioritize the Construction of the Alaska Natural Gas Pipeline.

Al Gore and these four big-budget green groups here show their true colors: they aren't friends of President Obama and are spending millions to undermine his energy agenda out of sheer malice toward fossil fuels.

Funding: Gore's controversial projects are spending hundreds of millions of dollars that are invisible to the public. From public statements The Librarian can detect only a small fraction of the money known to be spent.
Paramount Classics, distributor of Gore's documentary An Inconvenient Truth announced in August 2006 that it would donate 5% of all box office receipts to the Alliance. Al Gore is also donating all his proceeds from the film to the Alliance.
Some of the profits from the Live Earth concerts, and profits from the associated book - The Live Earth Global Warming Survival Handbook, will also be used to fund the alliance, which is also seeking contributions from other donors.
After receiving the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, Al Gore pledged to donate 100% of his share of the prize (approximately $1.5 million) to the Alliance.
