He’s a bootlegger and baptist wrapped up in one. Check out this malarky on CEO Jim Rogers who apparently attended some climate alarmist meeting in Brussels:
But one of the people most talked about behind his back was Duke Energy CEO Jim Rogers.
People were stunned by his candor and apparent strong commitment to climate change action. His first line when he spoke at the Forum yesterday was to tell the audience to focus on the numbers 3, 12 and 41.
He said that Duke Energy was the third largest emitter of carbon in the United States and the twelfth in the world — and if considered an independent nation, Duke Energy would be 41st in the world — so carbon emissions is a huge issue for him and his firm and wants to turn that around.
Jim Rogers ain’t no angel people. He’s not atoning for anything. What he knows (just like Paul Anderson knew) is that if Duke Energy has to compete in a carbon tax environment, then they’ll kill their competition. Duke has huge interests in nuclear and natural gas. Competitors are not in such a good position. So don’t be fooled. Jim Rogers wants to kill his competitors with climate change regs. He may have convinced himself that it’s the "right thing" but he’s a bootlegger and a Baptist all in one.
