Tony Blair is set to earn millions of pounds advising an American businessman on how to make money from tackling climate change.
The former prime minister will be paid at least £700,000 a year to act as a “strategic adviser” to Khosla Ventures, a venture capitalist firm founded by Indian billionaire Vinod Khosla.
The Californian company bankrolls businesses hoping to profit from technology that helps reduce global warming and carbon emissions.
Mr Blair secured the job thanks to his “influence” and high level international contacts, whom he will be expected to lean on to open doors.
He has told friends he needs £5 million a year to fund his lifestyle.

From rebel university Trotski, to capitalist trough feeder all in one fluid motion.
They all sell out in the end.
Five million quid a year and he still can't afford to get his teeth fixed, it looks like an abandoned graveyard in there.

Most Brits still haven't been brainwashed into thinking that it is important to have stupidly white, over perfect plastic looking teeth like our American cousins. Fortunately.
