Jump To Al Gore's Stats
Former Vice President Al Goreís net worth has increased tenfold since leaving office of the U.S. Vice Presidency. His net worth is now $138,486,400. His bankability has come from a variety of sources, but his speaking engagements remain a lucrative source of his present income.
Gore made a play for the Presidency in 2000 after Clinton. But, alas, it was not to be and after a closely contested and contentious race, he conceded to his opponent George W. Bush after a contentious struggle for a decisive result in Florida.
He then embarked on an environmental crusade, pushing the ignored topic of global warming to the forefront. Albert Arnold Gore was on a mission using everything in his arsenal to jolt the world awake on the perils of pollution and what we needed to do to save our planet. From his book and documentary An Inconvenient Truth to his television station Current, he continued stressing the dangers of global warming.
His fight had started long before though, with the launch of the Globe Program in 1994 to help students worldwide through hands-on science. People eventually took notice after he received some prestigious awards for his efforts which included the shared Nobel Peace Prize, an Emmy for his work on Current TV and an Academy Award for the Inconvenient Truth documentary.
Not everyone was praising his environmental crusade and critics claim he was getting rich off said ventures. Moreover, some claimed Goreís private jet globe-trotting and living in mansions meant his carbon footprint made him a hypocrite.
The 63-year-old former VPís 2010 separation from wife of 40 years, Tipper was a shocker and another chink in his armor. Rumors of infidelity with a masseuse circulated which added to the drama. However, the furor died down and this father of four, is back to padding that bank account and saving the Planet.
