More Global Warming Profiteering by Obama Energy Official

Surprising documents made available to this author reveal that Assistant Secretary of Energy Cathy Zoi has a huge financial stake in companies likely to profit from the Obama administration’s “green” policies.

Zoi, who left her position as CEO of the Alliance for Climate Protection — founded by Al Gore — to serve as assistant secretary for energy efficiency and renewable energy, now manages billions in “green jobs” funding. But the disclosure documents show that Zoi not only is in a position to affect the fortunes of her previous employer, ex-Vice President Al Gore, but that she herself has large holdings in two firms that could directly profit from policies proposed by the Department of Energy.

There is no such thing as conflict of interest if it helps the greening of America. I'm sure Al Gore is proud of her.

Good to hear the potential corruption is being revealed, but I'm not surprised. Across the entire country, state to federal to private, ethics have gone to hell.

Well seeing how that blog has an Ann Coulter ad, I assume they were equally outraged when the oil execs headed to the White House to help Cheney write energy policy. I think they felt it was important to tap into private sector expertise.

No worry about ethics at the National Labs. LANS is requiring all employees to take and pass ethics training. They have it all under control.

What "hot stocks" does Dr. Chu have a buy signal out on?

Is the fact that NNSA's Tom D'Agostino single-handedly chose Bechtel/BWXT for the lab LLCs and will some day retire to a very lucrative VP slot with Bechtel a "conflict-of-interest" issue?

And to think, NNSA and the LLCs are now making all the employees take loads of "ethics" training. The DOE/NNSA/LLC hypocrisy in all of this is mind-numbing!

It's all about the money at DOE and NNSA these days. Follow the trail...
