"David Cohen, who is both the president of Karlin Asset Management, which he founded in 2005, and the co-founder of Karlin Real Estate.

Karlin Asset Management, which manages more than $1 billion for one primary client, exemplifies the type of expertise that's in high demand by large single-family offices. In the following interview, Cohen describes the firm's investment philosophy and how it was able to succeed during one of the most volatile financial periods in the nation's history."
Here David Cohen brags about their timber investment. Gary Michelson made money on the teak farms. Here Cohen is taking credit for helping the earth. What about the people who originally owned that land? They sold it to Gary for pennies on the dollar. Gary took money from poor villagers. It reminds me of Fiji water.
UPDATE: I found out that if you do teak farms right they are sustainable and do help the environment. You plant and cut the teak at intervals which allow for the land to always have trees for 100 years before the minerals are depleted. Then you cut it all down, plant a different crop for a few years to restore minerals then go back to teak farming.
They will be planting teak trees and then cut them down for timber. That won't reverse climate change long term. Right now it's grazing land. The land already has plants on it. That's like raising cattle saying you are a cow sanctuary then you slaughter them and sell their meat. How can anyone believe Gary Michelson's drivel? It's insulting. Everyone just wants to kiss his ass so they can get some money. A patent guy interviewed him and posted his interview online. The guy kisses his ass. First he says he may not really be a patent troll. Later he says patent trolls really aren't that bad. Gary Michelson admits everyone calls him a patent troll.
