Mean Green’s Cynical Makeover

By on 1.17.11 | 8:25AM

As the Obama administration races to make reality his dream of 'bankrupt[ing]' coal and causing your 'electricity rates [to] necessarily skyrocket', they are also rushing to rebrand the effort by changing its face. The obvious wealthy, white and western environmentalist movement is getting another big bag of taxpayer money to give itself a makeover as a minority-rights movement.

The Examiner's Tim Carney reports that "President Obama's EPA administrator, Lisa Jackson [is] sending $7 million of the taxpayers' money to dozens of groups mounting academic and propaganda campaigns organized around that theme."

This is a drop in the bucket whose larger objective is to bring in these groups as aid-dependent advocates of an agenda.  The most repugnant aspect of this cynical ploy is that people of color are those hurt first and worst by this agenda, and most threatened by its global expansion.

UPDATE: A friend forwards this article. So let's watch another devastatingly expensive, ineffective and eve counterproductive lack of green judgment unfold in New Yor's schools. No doubt in the name of protecting minorities. Wait, minority children.
