Big-Government Environmentalism Wears Out Its Welcome
America's presidential hopefuls are pushing government-heavy approaches to climate change — just as the rest of the world is rebelling against them.

While the three remaining presidential candidates try to out-green each other, the rest of the world is rebelling at the astronomical costs involved. “Somehow” this rebellion has received little U.S. media attention. This explains how Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John McCain can still advocate government- and tax-heavy approaches with straight faces.
Meanwhile, my nearly daily emails from the indefatigable Benny Peiser of CCnet, whose assemblages of environment and science links and summaries are essential for anyone who wants to keep up with worldwide environmentalist mischief, tell me that:
* Governments elsewhere are balking at meeting mandatory targets for reducing so-called greenhouse emissions. A recent G8- and Europe-related example is here (”Rich nations must lead on climate change: UN official”).
* Those same governments are using “climate protection” as a crutch as they attempt to do what governments do best — raise taxes.
* Citizens, and politicians preferring to remain in office, are saying “Enough!”
