You've Heard the Phrase "Follow the Money"

"In 2000 and 2001, while Barack Obama served as a board member for a Chicago-based charitable foundation, he helped to fund a pioneering carbon trading exchange that is likely to fill a critical role in the controversial cap-and-trade carbon reduction scheme that President Obama is now trying to push rapidly through Congress."

In other words while on acting as a board member he helped to get a "stock market" started that deals in greenhouse gases. Now this next part is pure conjecture, but wonder how much of his own money he has invested in this? It is well documented that Al Gore has ties with this same exchange. Wonder how many other people there are yelling to the top of their lungs trying to get this cap-and-trade passed have a huge chunk of money on the line?
