Not all companies will suffer because of the EPA's recent decision to mandate emission caps on carbon. And the list of companies that stand to benefit goes well beyond the realm of alternative energy.

Thanks to an oil extraction technique already used by Denbury Resources (NYSE:DNR) and Occidental Petroleum (NYSE: OXY), CO2 has value as a commodity, and Kinder Morgan Energy Partners is best positioned to take advantage of it.
