Greenpeace leader Kumi Naidoo brings strong message to Charlotte

During his visit to Charlotte last week, Kumi Naidoo, the international executive director of Greenpeace, had some harsh words about energy executives, Democrats and the Democratic National Convention, which will be held here next September. "The very fact that [Duke Energy CEO] Jim Rogers was appointed as the co-chair is a very big statement about how close the dirty energy industry is with even the Democratic Party," the 46-year-old native of South Africa told a packed room at the International House. If its merger with Progress Energy goes through, Duke will be the nation's largest energy company, and it already is one of the world's biggest contributors to environmental pollution.
