Not only is Al Gore going to make hundreds of millions off of the Democrat’s cap-&-tax energy bill but one of Gore’s environmental groups and several green activists helped draft the legislation. Commerce Committee Chairman Henry A. Waxman (D-California) used US Climate Action Partnership’s (ASCAP) proposals as a blueprint for climate legislation. The Washington Times reported that the sweeping climate bill includes a provision that benefits Duke Energy Corp., a founding member of the U.S. Climate Action Partnership (USCAP), whose climate plan released in January the lawmakers have frequently called a “blueprint” for their climate legislation. The Times continued:
At the kickoff to hearings last week on the massive climate bill, Myron Ebell, climate and energy policy director for the Competitive Enterprise Institute, told lawmakers, “The authors of the draft bill have invited the beneficiaries of what could turn out to be the biggest transfer of wealth from consumers to special interests in American history to write the rules for this legalized plunder.”
Al Gore’s World Resources Institute is one of the founding members of USCAP, the organization that helped construct the bill. The former VP has also invested heavily in green businesses that will benefit greatly by the liberals’ cap and trade plans. Gore is the founder and chairman of Alliance for Climate Protection. You likely know the organization through its branch Repower America. This group has bombarded the airwaves with “We Can Solve It” ads that are pushing for cap and trade legislation.
