Karma Offset [Dan Collins]
Hot on the heels of the news that The One’s Treasury Secretary nominee forgot to pay back taxes until the day before his nomination was announced, and also employed an undocumented housecleaner, comes this news, via Gateway Pundit:
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 socialist web pages.
Well, now it was discovered that this same radical eco-socialist is a board member of one of the leading carbon offset trading companies, APX!
Well, boy, howdy! What does all this mean? It means, of course, that Democratic lawmakers might investigate the Bush detention and torture policies.
Bernanke thinks it’s important to remove the toxic assets from American financial institutions and store them at Yucca Mountain, much to the chagrin of environmentalists. Rather than purchase the carbon credits that Carol Browner touted,
“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.”
I think that it might be nice for skanky pols–Rangel comes to mind–to cut out the middlemen and purchase Fair Trade Karma Offsets directly from third-world indigenous peoples. Such as The One’s half-bro.
Jesus’ genitals, don’t they vet these people?
The real tragedy would be if we turned to nuclear energy and cut good folks like APX out.
