Obama's involvement in Chicago Climate Exchange - the rest of the story
Canada Free Press ^ | March 25, 2009 | Judi McLeod

Posted on 12/16/2009 8:57:09 PM PST by sinanju

"...The charity was the Joyce Foundation on whose board of directors Obama served and which gave nearly $1.1 million in two separate grants that were “instrumental in developing and launching the privately-owned Chicago Climate Exchange, which now calls itself “North America’s only cap and trade system for all six greenhouse gases, with global affiliates and projects worldwide.”

And that’s only the beginning of this tawdry tale, Mr. Barnes.

The “privately-owned” Chicago Climate Exchange is heavily influenced by Obama cohorts Al Gore and Maurice Strong.

For years now Strong and Gore have been cashing in on that lucrative cottage industry known as man-made global warming.

Strong is on the board of directors of the Chicago Climate Exchange, Wikipedia-described as “the world’s first and North America’s only legally binding greenhouse gas emission registry reduction system for emission sources and offset projects in North America and Brazil.”

Gore, self-proclaimed Patron Saint of the Environment, buys his carbon off-sets from himself—the Generation Investment Management LLP, “an independent, private, owner-managed partnership established in 2004 with offices in London and Washington, D.C., of which he is both chairman and founding partner. The Generation Investment Management business has considerable influence over the major carbon credit trading firms that currently exist, including the Chicago Climate Exchange.

Strong, the silent partner, is a man whose name often draws a blank on the Washington cocktail circuit. Even though a former Secretary General of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (the much hyped Rio Earth Summit) and Under-Secretary General of the United Nations in the days of an Oil-for-Food beleaguered Kofi Annan, the Canadian born Strong is little known in the United States. That’s because he spends most of his time in China where he he has been working to make the communist country the world’s next superpower..."

There would a lot of Ricco charges and all kinds of others, and lots of orange jump suits - were there an “R” after their names.

Evil walks among us.

Note the the goricle has now called to move the next goreBull conf. to summer - in Mexico City - rather than wait for Dec/Jan. Does he sense things slipping away - is he melting under the bright glare of truth?

He should be wearing orange long before summer - but he can, at least, count on it being really ‘warm’ in Mexico City in summer...it's practically on the equator.

This story confirms my belief in the necessity of shrinking our government. It’s too big to protect from the likes of the Democrat thieves, and cons.

Jesse Ventura hammered their arses! Much of what is said in this article was on Conspiracy Theory tonight. These theiving rat bastards are like ticks sucking the life blood out of our nation. They have fully convinced the uneducated and the clueless that this crap is real and caused by man. They have woven their webs internationally.

Thanks for the ping bitt! I've just got a minute but I want to ask what may be a dumb question: The article states the Chicago Climate Exchange is the ONLY legally binding venue, so what legislation/regulation REQUIRES companies to pay into this carbon "exchange" flimflam anyway? Were it my company I'd tell the moneycarbon changers to kiss my brown spot!

CCX member list. Keep in mind that this is not the only carbon exchange in the country now. Also notice that there are states, municipalities, and universities on the list. That means taxpayer money going down that hole. I also wonder about how much bailout money went into it as well.

Who knows - God does seem to've had a sense of humor on these conclaves ;o)

But hopefully not a huge volcanic eruption that would spew stuff too high and we'd have one of those "no summer" summers from the ash circling the globe.

I've had about all of this 'goreBULL warming I can take - well, don't have a lot of choice. It's only Dec 17th and I'm on my way out into 14 degrees with winds 20-25 - wind chill factor? Feels like minus 100. And it hasn't even gotten to the cold half of winter yet.

BTW, It's currently 25 in Copenhagen with drifting snow - and will stay the same next 3 days...hope someone doesn't get frost bit ears...(not hoping too hard)

Senator Gillibrand’s own words, from November of 2009 Wall Street Journal, show that the real purpose of Barack Obama’s climate change legislation is to give Wall Street speculators yet another tulip bulb scheme to replace the mess (mortgage backed securities) for which we are still paying with a $750 billion stimulus package, various bailouts at the taxpayers’ expense, and ten percent unemployment.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB20001424052748704500604574481812686144826.html

Senator Gillibrand says openly the real purpose of cap and trade is not to protect the environment, but to line the pockets of fat-cat speculators who cannot produce goods or services that are of genuine value to society.

Kirsten Gillibrand has just put it on record that the Democrats are no longer the party of “working Americans”, they are the party of the New York Stock Exchange, J.P. Morgan Chase, and Goldman Sachs.
