The envelope please…
And the winner is… Nobel Laureate Al Gore!
Al Gore has come under fire for making personal gain from his mission to save the planet after charging £3,300 a minute [about $6,600] to deliver a poorly received speech.
The former American Vice-President was also accused of being “precious” at the London event, demanding his own VIP room and ejecting journalists, despite hopes the star-studded gathering would generate publicity for the fight against global warming.
Many of the audience at last month’s Fortune Forum summit were restless as Mr Gore, who has won both a Nobel Peace Prize and an Oscar for his campaigning work this year, delivered the half-hour speech that netted him £100,000 [about $200,000].
Oh… how NOT so shocking!
Anyone who give this pompous gasbag credibility at this point is an absolute fool.
