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.
The group's Commission for a Sustainable World Society, the organization's action arm on climate change, says the developed world must reduce consumption and commit to binding and punitive limits on greenhouse gas emissions.
Mr. Obama, who has said action on climate change would be a priority in his administration, tapped Mrs. Browner last month to fill a new position as White House coordinator of climate and energy policies. The appointment does not need Senate confirmation.
Mr. Obama's transition team said Mrs. Browner's membership in the organization is not a problem and that it brings experience in U.S. policymaking to her new role.
Mix billions of dollars with a global agenda of controlling business and people and that is what the global warming nonsense is really about. It's too bad Obama didn't appoint Gore as official rainmaker for his brave new world because Gore is a transparent huckster, but at least he is not a true socialist. He loves money more than climate and global warming is just his sugar daddy.
Browning is a true socialist and will further her agenda through the human caused global warming hoax. To Browning, it matters not whether it is true or not, it is simply a vehicle for her. A vehicle that will cripple America.
