Carol Browner was covered in an August post on my blog Discussion of Issues.
In that article I reference a January 2009 article from American Spectator Doug Bandow:
Conservatives are often accused of scaremongering when they claim left-wing environmentalists are actually socialists hiding behind green disguises. But with Carol Browner, incoming President Barack Obama’s freshly appointed Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change – the so-called White House “Climate Czar” - there is no question about the socialism. Browner is a member of the Commission for a Sustainable World Society (CSWS), which is a formal organ of the Socialist International. Oddly enough, the group’s web site was recently scrubbed to remove Browner’s picture and biography, but her name is still listed next to the photo-biographies of her 14 colleagues on the commission. The Socialist International is no group of woolly-headed idealists. It is an influential assembly of officials from across the international community whose official Statement of Principles describes an agenda of gaining and exercising government power based on socialist concepts. Read the rest of the article here.
Update 8/29/09 *Socialist International Website no longer shows Carol Browner’s name
And read this article from the Washington Times.
Just learned from Gateway Pundit Jim Hoft that BO’s climate czar Carol Browner denies that the leaked emails in the “Climategate” scandal contain any information that indicate that the “science” is incorrect. She still believes that the “science is settled” according to an article in the Washington Times Wednesday, Nov 25th.
It seems that Ms. Browner is or was a board member of a carbon offset trading company by the name of APX. Do you think maybe there is just a smidge of conflict of interest there?
