So it turns out that George has been on the board for twelve years and the project was started by Hayek Sr before he died...

[size=66]Swatch Chair Picks Clooney for Energy Firm[/size]
October 25, 2007 by JCK MAGAZINE

[size=15]George Clooney will become an executive board member of a new Swiss company that will develop clean energy systems for car motors and other devices, The Associated Press reports.
The new company will have different branches doing research and development in the clean production of hydrogen, solar energy and fuel cells, said Nicolas Hayek, Sr., chairman of the Swatch Group, who is setting up the firm.
“First I hesitated between Al Gore and Clooney,” Hayek said in an interview with daily Berner Zeitung on Oct. 20.
Hayek reportedly said he didn’t ask Gore because he wasn’t sure whether the former vice president would run for president and therefore might have accepted the post as a mere public relations exercise.
Clooney will sit on the board alongside Swiss astronaut Claude Nicollier and others, Hayek reportedly said.
Clooney’s spokesman, Stan Rosenfield, confirmed the report in an e-mail to The Associated Press.
Hayek, who chairs the executive board of Swatch Group AG, the world’s largest watchmaker, said he will also preside over the board of the new company, which will be based in Biel.
He did not say when the new company, which has yet to be named, will be launched, the AP reports.

dumb question... are these photos from the same visit/time period?   In this shot, he's fairly clean shaven and looks somewhat rested.  In the other shots he looks like Rip Van Winkle in need of a few vitamins.

Not sure if they're the same time frame.

I do find it interesting that it kind of puts to rest the idea of George running for president. They didn't choose Dole because they thought he might run. They chose George instead, so he must have convinced them that he wasn't going to. Not set in stone, but interesting.

No, the pix have some years between them.

I think they went for Gore as a possibility, Lizzy, because he was doing major films and touring the world warning about global warming then and what the world could do about it, but at the time he might have run for President.

George came from another angle and had a very long association with the company and it's owner at the time - it may also be that he was prepared to invest in something that is a good long term future to help the planet

PAN - I totally agree. I just think that if George was contemplating a run he would have let them know. They apparently didn't want to start something with someone who would have to leave before the project was finished.
