Somebody's wrong: Former politician Gore argues that fossil fuels will become valueless; superinvestor Charlie Munger says they will become "very high priced"

Al Gore: Divest Now From 'Sub-Prime' Coal And Oil Companies Before 'Carbon Bubble' Bursts | ThinkProgress
“There are $7 trillion worth carbon assets on the books of multinational energy companies….

The global scientific community has just reaffirmed that No more than one-third can ever possibly be burned without destroying the future.”
