His wealth comes from the coal industry. He founded Enersystem, a coal brokerage business of which he made most of his wealth, and $491,000, last year. His son now controls this business. Coal, a dirty energy, is in direct conflict with clean energy. No wonder he blocks climate change proposals.

He has several grandchildren, guess he isn’t thinking of their future in his greed.
