Al Gore Gets New Job

Posted By on Tue, Nov 13, 2007 at 4:00 AM

The New York Times reports that former vice president and Nobel Laureate Al Gore is now a partner in venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.

Gore will investigate the potential of alternative energy start-ups and advise the company on whether it should finance those start-ups. If that wasn't enough, Gore's salary will be donated to the Alliance for Climate Protection.

It looks to be a good partnership for everybody. Green businesses will get an opportunity for an influx of capital, and there are also rumors that Gore will probably be named Time Magazine's Person of the Year. Last year, you may recall, the magazine named "You" the winner.
