When President elect, Barack Obama, was choosing the new members of his administration he selected Nobel-prize winning physicist Steven Chu as energy secretary and Carol Browner to lead a White House council on energy and climate. Ms. Browner had headed the Environmental Protection Agency in the Clinton administration. Mr. Chu was director of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and a leading advocate of reducing greenhouse gases.
Carol Browner was described in an earlier article by Michelle Malkin, “The Trouble with Obama’s Energy Czar,” as a “neon-green radical.” With both Chu and Browner still at the energy helm, we are in a world of trouble.
Currently in the exotic luxury of Cancun, Mexico, hundreds of environmental gurus are enjoying sun, tequila and whatever else takes their fancy – all provided courtesy of the United Nations Climate Change Conference. Concerned as they are at “excessive carbon footprints,” nevertheless many of the attendees arrived in their own private aircraft. Not a little hypocrisy, it seems, surrounds this junket.
