"Gore Warns Markets Coal Stocks Will Lose Value"

"Former Vice President Gore is warning investors to pull their stock in coal assets or face devastating financial consequences.

In a Financial Times column Gore argues that it would be smart to divest from coal "for purely financial reasons," setting aside the harmful impact he says it has on the environment.

In an attempt to reach investors, Gore makes the case that three "disruptive forces" will hurt stock in coal companies and other investments in the fossil fuel in the future."
