AGW Today: Obama’s Climahysteria Czar Has Socialist And Carbon Offset Ties

There is a reason I, and most of the rest of the Deniers and Skeptics say that anthropogenic global warming has little to do with actual science, and more to do with control and money. So many normal everyday things you do are “bad for the environment,” ie, climate change, so they want you to pay for carbon offsets, lining someones pocket. But they are also interested in control: control of economies, control of governments, and control of people. And now we get

Until last week, Carol M. Browner, President-elect Barack Obama’s pick as global warming czar, was listed as one of 14 leaders of a socialist group’s Commission for a Sustainable World Society, which calls for “global governance” and says rich countries must shrink their economies to address climate change.

By Thursday, Mrs. Browner’s name and biography had been removed from Socialist International’s Web page, though a photo of her speaking June 30 to the group’s congress in Greece was still available.

Socialist International, an umbrella group for many of the world’s social democratic political parties such as Britain’s Labor Party, says it supports socialism and is harshly critical of U.S. policies.

Jay beat me to the post over at Stop The ACLU, and points to Gateway Pundit, which has the screenshots.

“Does she agree with the group’s positions on global governance – that the United States should abdicate its international leadership to international organizations? Does she support its position that the international community should be the ultimate arbiter of climate change policy?” said Antonia Ferrier, a spokeswoman for House Minority Leader John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican.

I have another question for her: does she think that the United States should give up its sovreignity in the name of climate change, which is what the Commission for a Sustainable World Society wants?

And the money? Guess who sits on APX’s Board of Directors?

Santa Clara, CA – March 10, 2008– APX, Inc., the leading infrastructure provider for environmental and energy markets, announced today that Carol Browner, former Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, has joined its Board of Directors. Ms. Browner, who has a distinguished career in public service, brings to APX’s Board deep expertise in environmental policy, including climate change issues.

APX makes money off environmental issues, as well as climate change, ie, anthropogenic global warming. I’m not finding any documents stating that she is no longer associated with APX. If anyone can, let me know, and I’ll pull this part.

Wednesday Update: regarding, APX, I recieved this from Anand Thaker, eMarketing Manager – APX, Inc.

We will take you up on your request for further info, and would like to clarify that Ms. Browner immediately resigned from the APX board and has no financial interest in the firm, to ensure that there is no conflict of interest.

To clarify another point, some blogs have referred to APX as a “trading” company. This is incorrect. APX Inc. is a provider of market technology and infrastructure services, and is not a broker, marketer, trader, or an exchange. In fact, APX revenue is unrelated to the price of the environmental certificates that we track and record, and the firm takes no position in these markets. We are policy neutral, except to the extent that we believe market-based approaches can be an effective means to achieve environmentally important objectives. Our aim is to ensure that there is the greatest level of transparency and integrity in environmental markets, and ensuring a level playing field for all market participants. A European firm and an Australian firm with similar names (unrelated to APX Inc.) are involved in trading and exchange activities, so that may have caused confusion for some bloggers.

If you could make your readers aware of these points, we would be appreciative.

I stand corrected.

    …and that reason obviously has absolutely NOTHING to do with a real understanding of the actual science behind the issue. Instead, you continue to yammer on about anecdotal evidence, straw man and red herring arguments, and conspiracy theories. If only you’d spend HALF the time you spend bloviating about nonsense, actually studying climate science, you might find something very different than what you currently believe to be true. I’m not holding my breath, though. Silke and I have both tried to provide you with primers, but you have continued to ignore them, preferring instead to stick to your hot air.

  2. If the science is settled, Reasic, why do so few of the Believers ever actually live the life they think everyone else should? Do you?
