It goes like this:
- Al Gore's Company, Generation Investment Management LLP together with Kleiner Perkins invest in Silver Spring Networks Generation Investment Management, LLP Headquartered at: One Vine Street London W1J 0AH U.K., Main: +44 (0) 207 534 4700, Fax: +44 (0) 207 534 4701
- US Energy Department then announces $3.4 billion in smart grid grants a good portion of which finds its way to Silver Spring Networks.
I found it interesting that one of the stated goals of Al Gore's company is something called "Demand Destruction" which is when demand for a good or service declines, usually due to an increase in its price.
This guy is one of the biggest crooks of the century.
