I was maing my daily browse through www.junkscience.com , when a link to this site caught my eye: http://www.techcentralstation.com/1051/envirowrapper.jsp?PID=1051-450&CID=1051-042502B
The article on this page seems to be claiming that Enron was pushing environmental groups and encouraging fear of global warming in order to gain acceptance for their own (expensive and more profitable) alternative fuels and energy sources.
Since Clinton pushed the Kyoto treaty, and Bush scuttled it, wouldn’t that seem to make Clinton a big business dupe? It would also seem to relieve President Bush from some of the accusations of big business influence.
What I am trying to ask here is actually rather simple:
Is there any truth to what the referenced site is claiming, or is it a load of crap?
I have tried to find the referenced info from The Washington Post, but I’ve had no luck.
I placed this question here (rather than in General Questions) because of its inherent political nature - I foresee facts being brought up, but lots of arguing going on.
It will probably be a while before I can get back to this - my lunch break is over and I’ll have to check back from home later this evening.
