Lobbying the president to shut off public debate on global warming, Enron requested Clinton to appoint a bipartisan Commission for high-level trashing of dissident scientists. The plan was that once the problem (imminent global catastrophe) was in place, the solution (Enron’s services) would be put into operation. They wanted to minimise public challenges and for the science to be “settled”.
This I have referred to time and again starting in March 2011. This assessment by Ken Ring is worthy of further study. The suggestion that Maggie Thatcher forced the CO² concerns as part of her destruction of the mine unions is worthy of consideration. Certainly she did form the first Climate Change Committee, the forerunner to the DECC, which seems a little off-message. It might explain that. That a union bashing propaganda spin turned the world upside down seems a bit fanciful, but worst things have happened in the past. With Obama’s take on the carbon future, it does question whether Presidents or Prime Ministers should be allowed out. Their capacity for damage is total!
