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 (motto: Progressive Politics For a Fairer World – DZ, 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. Read the rest here:

I may be getting a incorrect picture from posts and comments the blogosphere, but it seems that a lot of people are already getting buyers remorse on Obama before he’s even sworn in. Just wait until he and Mrs “Whitey” are dining in the White House. Fortunately, the right never did any ‘buying’ thus the left are the ones with the remorse, though it’s basically because Obama has left the bridesmaid out in the cold.

Anyway, last year was a year in which voters completely abandoned any semblance of civic discernment and elected a socialist as POTUS, thus why should we be surprised that Obama has put an outright socialist on the new Board? Expect Czarina to fill up the suites with her own cohorts and ya’ll be forewarned as to the unfolding events. (The surprise to me is that the conservatives completely gave up any semblance of free market policy.)

As far as sunshine/oversight is concerned, don’t bother looking for any electronic records of Browner’s first stint as a federal government executive. She didn’t keep any and destroyed the ones her department did keep. In sworn testimon, Ms. Browner disclosed that she refused to use e-mail when she served as President Clinton’s Environmental Protection Agency chief in the 1990s for fear of leaving a digital trail. She also ordered her government computer hard drive wiped clean of records just before leaving office. “It was a conscious decision not to use a piece of equipment or to learn how to use a piece of equipment because I didn’t want to be in a situation similar to what I had been in Florida,” she testified about government computers. The testimony referred to her days as an environmental regulator in Florida, where an e-mail message sent to her surfaced in litigation. “This is why I made this decision not to use my computer,” she said. “I was very careful.” Yeah, right. Ms. Browner’s sworn statements were gathered in a little-noticed civil case involving the government’s obligation to preserve its official records that transpired after Ms. Browner left office in January 2001.

The lawsuit examined why EPA officials failed to save electronic records that chronicled the Clinton administration’s final actions in office and that were being sought by a conservative legal group under federal open-records laws. The first six months of this will be , well….interesting to say the last.
