Gateway Pundit: Surprise!... Obama's Climate Czar Is Board Member of Major Carbon Offset Company ...Update: Her Husband Lobbied on Energy Issues
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 these socialist websites.

Now, it was discovered that this same radical eco-socialist is a board member of one of the leading carbon offset trading companies, APX!

William Teach passed on that Carol is a board member of a leading carbon offset trading company.

Wind Watch: Patrick sets 'huge' wind power goal
Gov. Deval L. Patrick on Tuesday called for a major increase in wind power in Massachusetts, a movement that could be a boon for Berkshire businesses that have already been pursuing turbines.

Patrick set a goal on Tuesday of 2,000 megawatts of wind-power capacity by 2020, enough to supply electricity to 800,000 homes.

“We have already made a commitment to reaching 250 megawatts of solar power in Massachusetts by 2017, and we are moving toward that goal,” Patrick said in a written statement. “Now is the time to turn to wind power, where we should reach even higher.”

But reaching that goal will be difficult. There are currently only nine wind turbines operating in Massachusetts, a capacity of 6.6 megawatts; Patrick’s goal will require more than 1,300 additional turbines. While there are more than 300 in the pipeline, many will fail to clear planning and permitting hurdles and will never be built.
