The World Bank should stay out of global warming politics - The Insiders - The Washington Post
The latest manifesto comes in today's Post, in an op-ed by Jim Yong Kim, the president of the World Bank...This op-ed wasn’t written by an investment professional, it was written by a leftist with an ax to grind.
It's not unusual for liberal activists to seek celebrity by becoming a pious, martyred, selfless advocate of a phony cause. But this is usually reserved for Hollywood dilettantes and mega-wealthy Learjet liberals. It is unfortunate to see someone with a real day-job competing for a place at that table.
I've just about given up on any Democrats being sincere regarding global warming. I've decided to disregard anything I hear from the left unless I know what the speaker is willing to do about ice cream and bottled water. If you don't call for a ban or a giant new tax on those two discretionary items that, pound-for-pound, produce as much greenhouse gases as just about anything else, then you are a phony and only pretending to believe what you are trying to peddle to the rest of us.
