Well, it just gets better and better. First, Obama’s climate czar was revealed as a radical socialist (in hiding), and now it comes out that she has an active interest in funneling big money into green companies:
It was reported yesterday that Barack Obama picked a radical socialist as his climate czar. Carol Browner belongs to organizations that call for “global governance” and demand that rich countries shrink their economies to address climate change. But since her pick, Mrs. Browner’s name and biography had been removed from these socialist websites.
William Teach passed on that Carol is a board member of a leading carbon offset trading company.
Mrs. Browner joined the board last March:
Carol Browner Joins 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.
She is currently a Principal of The Albright Group LLC, a global strategy firm that she co-founded with former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and a team of international negotiators and seasoned diplomats. The firm provides strategic counsel to clients around the world. She is also a Principal of Albright Capital Management LLC, an investment advisory firm.
Commenting on Ms. Browner’s election to the Board, Brian Storms, APX’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer said: “Carol is one of the world’s foremost environmental policy experts and we are honored that she is joining our Board of Directors. APX’s ability to attract such well-respected leaders as Carol to our Board underscores the trusted position we have established in supporting the rapidly developing environmental commodities markets. Her extensive experience and global perspective will be a tremendous asset to APX as we look to enhance our position as the leading environmental market infrastructure provider.”
Said Ms. Browner: “The explosive growth in environmental commodities trading will result in a greater need for market oversight. APX’s cutting-edge technology provides integrity and transparency, which are essential to the efficient and effective operations of these markets. APX is a world-class environmental infrastructure company with a long history of public private partnership, and I look forward to helping them capitalize on the full potential of these markets.”
…Of course you do.
It is not clear if Browner is still a member of the APX Board or not.
You’d think the Obama Camp would have known this when she was selected as climate czar.
Is anyone vetting these people?
Remember, this is politics: follow the money. I believe the people at the top of the environmental movement know exactly how much horse hockey they’re peddling, and they’re doing it anyway because they’re getting filthy rich off of the genuinely good intentions of millions of people all over the world.
And, with all due respect to Gateway Pundit, of course they’re vetting these people – they know exactly where these people stand on these issues, and Obama agrees with them. That’s why he’s picking them.
Lies! Corruption! Oh, wait…I mean: Hope! Change!
There’s my two cents.
