While much has been made of those who have a financial stake in defeating cap and trade global warming policy, little attention has been focused on those who stand to profit if this energy tax is passed into law. But Canada’s National Post did take a look at one noteworthy person, Al Gore, and found he stands to profit handsomely from the very policies he is now advocating. When Gore left office as Vice President he had little to show beyond his salary of $175,000 a year. But he has since earned a handsome $100 million pursuing the climate change crusade. And with his carbon offset and renewable energy business ready to take advantage of a new cap and trade policy, the Post says he stands to become a billionaire almost overnight.
