Thursday evening on the radio, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin discussed a report from The Daily Caller illustrating how the Obama administration lied to promote its environmental agenda.
The administration allegedly manipulated climate stats and reports to influence public opinion. From the article:
Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin told The Wall Street Journal Monday that bureaucrats within former President Barack Obama’s administration spun scientific data to manipulate public opinion.
“What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, I’d say, misleading, sometimes just wrong,” Koonin said, referring to elements within the Obama administration he said were responsible for manipulating climate data.
“We were lied to,” Levin said. “We were lied to in order to advance an ideology.”
And why? Why else — Big Government insatiable greed and lust for power.
“It’s an attack on capitalism,” Levin explained. “This is just the latest effort by the Left — the socialist Left, the Marxist Left — to nationalize economic decision making.”
Climate change is a greater national security threat than terrorism, many on the Left tell us. And some on the Right buy into their “myth,” Levin points out.
At the end of the day, this is utopian statism.
