Green jobs scandal coming

Icecap is reporting that there is going to be a major ethics scandal breaking on Monday. Apparently someone in the Obama administration has a major conflict of interest regarding green jobs and the stimulus. There are links to Al Gore it seems.

You'll not read, see, or hear about it in the MSM.

Even if there was a similar conflict of interest in Britain you still wouldn't read about it here!

Ummm……links to the godfather himself. Will there be a smoking gun or just another water pistol?

Could it be the link between Serious Materials Company ( Energy Efficient Windows ) and Obama administration.

One VP (Robin Roy) is married to Cathy Zoi (Obama Administration) who is overseeing the "Weatherisation Program". Obama personally endorsed the comapny and they are on the list for tax credits. The Vice President visited the factory and also endorsed them.

Also Fox is breaking a story on Monday on the Obama administration.

I would visit Icecap more often - there's some good content, but the dreadful 3 column layout just puts me off. You'd need to be a split personality to spend very long reading it!

Not quite sure where Al Gore fits into you suggestion Cloud10.

Tip of the iceberg, guaranteed. Just this morning, we read that Illinois' Senatorial candidate Giannoulias' mafia-friendly Broadway Bank has been closed by federal banking regulators. How long before we find that Gianoulias et al. were prime movers in leveraging Gore's carbon-offsets scam currently crashing through the floor in Europe? Like some political Gresham's Law, green candidacies tend to drive out half-way decent opponents of integrity. Meantime, nothing on Monday concerning the Banana Administration will surprise us-- nothing.

OOOOO! Another scandal. I'm sure they'll ask Lord Oxburgh to head up the investigation.

Re: Icecap
Just in case you have not done so, if one clicks on any of the boldest headings at the top, three becomes one. Much easier to read.

As you yourself must by now appreciate, Andrew and as I am sure the Al Gore story will illustrate, Climate Change is now more of a political than a scientific problem.

Unfortunately in both the US and UK all of the main political parties have swallowed the story whole. In the UK unlike America however, there is at least one party which demurs. Apart from wanting to get out of the EU, UKIP which had 2.5 million supporters in the 2009 EU elections is distinctly sceptical and has undertaken to set up a Royal Commission before it spends a penny on Climate Change.

UKIP, perhaps because of this so called "loony" policy has been excluded and the Liberals (who had only 2million votes in 2009) favoured in TV exposure.

However it has still managed to field 500 parliamentary candidates and should get one or two MP's. Sceptics should try to help it do well. The next election after this one may come quite soon and we may hope that by then it will be in a position to make a real impact.
