New Interior pick: Global warming hurt profits- UPDATE


No surprise here now is there? Did we think we would get anyone better than cowboy Salazar? How many more thousands of acres will she sock away for the government? Kiss energy goodbye.

UPDATE: Comrade Matrix sends us this via comment:

REI CEO Sally Jewell, President Obama’s nominee for Interior Secretary, received an Obamacare waiver in 2011 for her company’s health care coverage for 1,180 employees. As Michelle Malkin noted in her May 2011 column, Jewell participated in an Obama administration roundtable in 2009 to talk about the benefits of health care reform

Via Washington Secrets:

REI, the popular outfitter run by President Obama’s choice to head the Interior Department, cited the impact of global warming as a reason for poor profits in its most recent annual report. [...]

Obama’s pick is REI CEO Sally Jewell, who has run the firm since 2005. Under Jewell, REI has blossomed while pursuing a green agenda aimed at cutting carbon emissions and dressing shoppers in environmentally-sensitive gear and clothing.

In a 2007 interview with the enviro-website Grist, she bemoaned REI’s carbon footprint, especially from employees commuting to work and even the companies travel program. “One of the shockers to me is 26 percent of REI’s greenhouse-gas footprint is REI Adventure travel trips, like the one I’m about to take. It’s almost as much as — or maybe it’s equal to — all of the electricity generated by all of our facilities. And that is, like, stunning,” she said.

    This fits in with something I saw yesterday about the other devised falsehoods: Ann Bressington Exposes Agenda 21, Club of Rome. Placing that topic in Utube ‘search’ will bring it up, plus other related vids – some quite telling
    Even the terminology of ‘footprint’ is telling of their monster mentality – like ‘under a thumb’ symbolism.
