Barack to global warming skeptics: Follow the power and the money, suckahs!

I wrote this post yesterday - even expanding it to include a Sarah Palin fantasy sequence - before learning of this global warming vignette from Tuesday:
Sitting between Gore and his vice president-elect Joseph Biden following the hour-long meeting, Obama told reporters:
“All three of us are in agreement that the time for delay is over. The time for denial is over."

“We all believe what the scientists have been telling us for years now, that this is a matter of urgency and national security, and it has to be dealt with in a serious way. That is what I intend my administration to do.”
Barack is going to lead a fantasy based U.S. policy while ridiculing "deniers" as troglodytes. Except, deniers now include 650 scientists and the UN IPCC. Again I point to:
  1. Barack is likely sympathetic to a World Government which is heavily influenced by Europe. "Global Warming Crisis!" is a method of speeding and empowering such World Government.
  2. Barack is certainly sympathetic to centralized government management of the U.S. economy. "Global Warming Crisis!" is a method of limiting free enterprise and expanding the power of centralized government.
Facts be damned; governing is all about the (false) narrative. The time for denial is over; we troglodytes must take our medicine and like it. Follow the power and the money, suckahs!

If the U.S. invests heavily "clean technology", Colin Powell stands to benefit:
A reader notes that Colin Powell is a “Strategic Limited Partner” at Kleiner Perkins Caulfield and Byers, one of the best performing venture capital firms in history, having sponsored Google, and Apple, among others. Kleiner has made huge pushes into ‘clean technology’ of late — over the past 3-4 years. They have even raised an all clean-tech fund. Al Gore is also a special partner.” An Obama victory would put Kleiner in a strong commercial position.
Did the oily Powell - before agreeing to endorse Barack - secure Barack's agreement to promote clean technology? Activate the quease.

Where are the other scientists? There were only five quotes. I can believe NASA or I can believe you? I think I'll pick NASA.
