Good Riddance

Word has it Carol Browner is on the way out as the first Director of Energy and Climate Control. I will not miss her. As an administrator she was a failure. She was one of Obama’s top advisors on cutting back on developing oil reserves here in the US and offshore. Her war on carbon, once understood, was opposed even by Democrats and thankfully is going nowhere. Your own Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-WI, has called for an investigation of her directive to the auto industry to “put nothing in writing” during the secretive CORE talks.

And her handling of the Gulf oil spill was much less than stellar. On numerous talk shows she made this statement, “I think it’s also important to note that our scientists have done an initial assessment, and more than three-quarters of the oil is gone,”. The only problem was this was not true and there are, and never were, any facts to back this statement up. Furthermore, the National Oil Spill Commission, appointed by Obama himself, said in documents released “that the Obama administration kept scientists from being frank with the public and committed other missteps that raised questions about its competence and candor in the wake of the April 20 accident.” And the frontline Obama appointee in charge of this–Carol Browner.

But my biggest criticism of Ms Browner is that she never lived up to the title bestowed on her by the Obama administration. Most would agree that our climate has changed during her tenure, but for the worse–in contrast to her title which I’m sure was meant for the better. On this front her appointment has been an utter failure. Glad to see her go.

  1. I love how we had someone in charge of “Climate Control” in the first place. There’s been one Dude in charge of climate control since the beginning of time, and I hardly think Ms. Browner knows more than Him. We might as well appoint a NASA scientist to be in charge of Earth’s orbit…. Orbit Controller in Chief. Haha.

  2. That’s funny! Obama could appoint someone to hang the moon and stars, too. 😉
