Gore’s New Gig

He’s not seeking public office; instead he’s again planting his flag in the private sector.

Instead, Al Gore is joining Silicon Valley v.c. firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers to expand it into “clean-tech” investments worldwide.

He also offered some words of encouragement that the world is waking up to the climate crisis.

In an interview with the AP, Gore said that the political winds on global warming are moving at a “snail’s pace.”

”But when it crosses a tipping point, it can move at lightning speed. We’re feeling that gear shift occur right now, and … we want to make sure the markets have the information and analytic systems in place to move at lightning speed,” Gore said.

He’s donating 100% of his salary to the Alliance for Climate Protection.

Kleiner Perkins hasm ade early investments in such companies as Google, Netscape and Amazon. It has yet to take a “clean tech” company public.
