James E. Rodgers, CEO of Duke Energy
James Rodgers, or Mr. Rodgers as we like to call him, is the top dog of Duke Energy. Duke runs several coal and nuclear plants in the southeast. In addition Duke energy is currently planning two new large coal plants in North Carolina (Rutherfordton County) and South Carolina. These new plants will not incorporate any technologies to reduce or trap carbon dioxide. Of course not, becuase that wouldn't help fatten the coffers of Mr. Rodgers. The proposed NC power plant will emit over 11 million tons of CO2 annually. Such perpetuation of coal burning will result in nothing short of ecological collapse due to global warming.
Previous to running Duke Energy Rodgers worked for Enron. Rogers is currently a director for Duke Energy (and served on the Cinergy board before its merger with Duke Energy), Fifth Third Bancorp and Fifth Third Bank. He is chairman of Edison Electric Institute and serves on the Executive Committee. He also serves on the boards of the American Gas Association, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Business Roundtable and the National Coal Council. In 2006, he was named to the board of directors of the Alliance to Save Energy.
Let Mr. Rodgers know what you think about him and his plans to destroy the world.
