Roger Stone was a guest host last night at Infowars, sitting in for Alex Jones.
Stone took the opportunity on the airwaves to warn that Gary Cohn, former Goldman Sachs CEO and current chief economic advisor to President Trump, is pushing for Trump to institute a carbon tax.
Stone reports that the tax would be particularly beneficial to Cohn's old crony Wall Street firm, Goldman Sachs.

Climate change fearmonger Ted Halstead, president of of the Climate Leadership Council, is estatic about Cohn's push and attended a February 8 meeting at the White House to discuss a climate plan.
"Our objective was twofold: to put this plan on their radar screen and for them not to dismiss it," said Halstead when commenting on his goals for the meeting. "They have not dismissed it, which, given that part of it is a carbon tax, is significant."
When asked earlier this week whether Cohn, a registered Democrat, supported a carbon tax, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said there was a "robust" discussion ongoing about taxes.
