The Center for Climate Strategies is a nonprofit “service group” that has been approaching states and offering to help them develop policies to address climate change. They are funded by several global warming fearmongers like the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Heinz Endowments, and Ted Turner’s Foundation, which makes them attractive to states because they get to develop a process to reduce greenhouse gases on the cheap. Meanwhile new legislation focused on smart growth initiatives, fuel surcharges and energy taxes gets a big push forward by CCS.
Well, some folks have begun to keep an eye on them through a site called Climate Strategies Watch. Meanwhile I’ve got my latest piece about them up on the Washington Examiner today. I wrote about CCS for AmSpec in July.
