Al Gore moves into Silicon Valley

well, I guess he’s still gonna live in Tennessee….but…

Nobel Peace Prize winner and former Vice President Al Gore announced Monday he’s joining Silicon Valley’s most prestigious venture capital firm to guide investments that help combat global warming. Gore joins Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers as it and dozens of other venture firms headquartered in Silicon Valley expand beyond software, computer hardware, the Internet and biotechnology to so-called “clean-tech” investments worldwide. Gore is expected to be a high-profile, active partner at Kleiner Perkins. He’s already a senior adviser to Google Inc. and a member of the board at Apple Inc. Alliance for Climate Protection, the advocacy group he co-founded, is based in Palo Alto.

Reportedly, Gore will donate his share of any profits to Alliance for Climate Protection.
