Obama, Big Business Get Cozy On Climate Agenda

Tom Borelli discussed his Conservative Review commentary about big business supporting President Obama’s climate change agenda on Dateline Washington with host Greg Corombos.

Read Corombos’ report below:

The Obama administration is actively lining up corporate America to champion his controversial climate agenda that he hopes to push through a United Nations summit in the coming weeks, and businesses are jumping aboard by the dozens, either out of profit motive or to avoid punitive action from the White House.

Back in June, a Daily Caller article reported that Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett was using both sticks and carrots to woo big businesses onto the climate change bandwagon.

In a column for Conservative Review, energy expert and crony capitalism watchdog Dr. Tom Borelli says corporate leaders are only too eager to join forces with Obama.

“Eighty-one companies have signed onto a White House climate change pledge, where each company volunteers to take certain actions to reduce carbon dioxide emissions,” said Borelli.

Some firms signing onto the Obama climate plan are focused on renewable energy and see a major windfall in profits headed their way if carbon dioxide standards are slashed in the U.S. Others have different incentives.
