No mention of turning down the earth’s thermostat a fraction of a degree here:

Haiti has justifiably been taking up alot of energy and focus of the United Nations over the last two days. But it is worth noting that there has been a long scheduled meeting of entrepreneurs and investors concerned about climate change at the UN today. The United Nations Investors Summit on Climate Risk today will feature Al Gore, George Soros, AFL-CIO President Richard Trupka, and Ted Turner among others.  The UN Foundation has played a lead role in organizing the meeting.*   The idea here is to get stakeholders talking about ways to “to bring together leading institutional investors, state treasurers, and financial services firms worldwide to consider the scale and urgency of climate change risks and to analyze emerging investment strategies and opportunities.” You can watch the proceedings live via UN Webcast.

    Hi there:
    Back when I thought Al Gore was legit, I offered him a DVD I had made giving the health of a Mountain close to me. A 16 mile long, 1 mile wide Moraine had gone down to 4 miles in a few years. I had watched this happen and I thought it was important just as Mt. Kilimanjaro was important as losing ice storage or fresh water storage hits everything living. I was able to get 3 e-mails for Al and not one was answered. All I wanted to do was mail him a disc but I had to have an address……nothing. When people do not answer after many tries after getting an explanation of the disc, I lose all my respect. Anyway, I hope he enjoys his Bilderberger buddies as I have lost any thought of getting hold of him.
    Barry.
