Some local movers and shakers had offered to go to New Hampshire and work for Al Gore on his Presidential campaign but it looks like Al is set on staying in the private sector:

Gore, who won the Nobel Peace Prize last month for his work on climate change, joins Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers as it and dozens of other venture firms expand into so-called "clean-tech" investments worldwide.

The former vice president, who starred in the Academy Award-winning global warming documentary, "An inconvenient Truth," 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.

Gore will donate all of his salary to the Alliance for Climate Protection, the advocacy group he co-founded, based in Palo Alto.

Gore is pointing out that fighting Climate Change will be good for the economy.
