Al Gore, the first carbon billionaire

Yesterday, here, Vitezslav Kremlik asked: "Is climate change a religion?" And he was well rewarded with scathing comments for having had the temerity to even pose the question as it seems that many people are still in denial about the sacred nature of the green cause.
Anyway, right on cue today, the Guardian has an article titled "Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth sequel stresses spiritual argument on climate". In it, we learn that Gore's new strategy is "to appeal to those who believe there is a moral or religious duty to protect the planet." Is this what Vitezslav was hinting at in his post?
But the far more interesting Gore story in today's papers appears in the New York Times under the headline "Gore's Dual Role in Spotlight: Advocate and Investor". Although the writer of the piece, John M. Broder, does everything possible not to knock the green halo off Al Gore's head, he does include this snippet towards the end: "Mr. Gore is a partner at Kleiner Perkins, which has hundreds of millions of dollars invested in firms that could benefit from any legislation that limits carbon dioxide emissions."
Al Gore, the first carbon billionaire! Green is good! Gimme some of that NewTime religion!
