Centimillionaire warmist Al Gore, after allegedly blowing through $300 million trying to sell global warming in the U.S., suggests that warmists are too poor to afford TV airtime

Al Gore in Hollywood: Warmists too poor to afford TV airtime; Can’t get message out |
Earth to Al: You owned a TV network. You sold if for $500 million (of which you got $100 million). Your personal net worth exceeds $200 million. Your nonprofit Alliance for Climate Protection has annual revenue in the neighborhood of $16 million. The environmental industry has annual income on the order of $3 billion. Bill Gates, the world second richest man, has a net worth of $67 billion. It’s not that warmists don’t have enough money or get enough airtime/ink; your problem is that you are intellectually and morally bankrupt.

Gore is a hectomillionaire. I am a centimillionaire.

He's a centimillionaire according to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary. That's good enough for me.

If you exclude ill gotten gain, the fat bastard is broke.

Centi, as a prefix, means one one hundredth - not 100. that's not a matter of opinion.

If you can get the Merriam-Webster people to "correct" their dictionary, and if you can get the American people to start using hectomillionaire instead of centimillionaire, please let me know.

Wikipedia agrees with Tom's usage-

"The term centimillionaire has become synonymous with hectomillionaire in America, despite the centi- prefix meaning 1/100, not 100, in the metric system."
