OK, maybe these are just coincidences.
On Monday, Climate Wire reported that Danish Socialist MEP Dan Jørgensen, vice-chairman of the European Parliament's Committee on the Environment, called for Europe's cap-and-trade scheme to be more purely socialist like — wait for it — Barack Obama's.
Today, E&E News reports (subscription required) that Obama "climate czarina" Carol Browner — who was, until her appointment to a new post created to skirt constitutional constitutional Senate confirmation requirements for such influential posts, was an official of the Socialist International — is behind Obama's cap-and-trade proposal and particularly the effort to sneak it in the filibuster-proof budget reconciliation measure.
