Al Gore Backs Car Firm and Gets Big Bucks from U.S.

Yes, US. A $529 million loan to help build a hybrid gas-electric sports car in Finland that will sell for about $80,000. They say you have to start somewhere so you can get to mass production to bring the price down. Oh, and by the way, the design team hasn't started yet.

However, the Silicon Valley venture-capital firm in which Gore is a partner is also known for the $2.2 million in political campaigns, mostly for Democrats, including Obama and Hillary.

Of course the DOE says Mr. Gore had no influence on Fisker's loan application.

Now that's a bedtime story for the weekend.

God bless us all.............

Taxpayer money to fund a loan. For a company to locate in Finland. To build a car most folks can't afford. In such small quantities they won't make a hill of beans of difference.

Why can't the global warming is real dude just use the royalties from his other invention, the Internet?
