Morano: "While there’s nothing wrong, of course, with investing in companies, it is concerning when a public figure like Gore stands to directly profit from the government actions he is calling for to “save the planet.” Perhaps Americans would be more open to the idea of eating less meat if doing so wouldn’t result in big money for the spokesman. At its core, the war on meat-eating has nothing to do with nutrition or health, but it is part of the regulatory states’ effort to ban and manage more and more aspects of our lives. There are even proposals to ban fast food drive-thrus to stop “climate change.”
The climate establishment wants to tax, regulate or ban your burgers, your home appliances, your backyard grills, your SUVs, your airline travel, home thermostat control, plastic staws, fracking, coal, and determine how many kids you can have. The regulatory state is expanding not to control “climate change,” but to instead control more and more aspects of our lives.
And Gore continues to find a way to cash in on these expanding efforts."
