Soros dreaming of a green America

"Soros will establish the Climate Policy Initiative, a San Francisco-based organization to which he will donate $10 million a year for 10 years. It will be part advisory service, part policy developer, and part watchdog, said Thomas Heller, who is heading the initiative. Heller is a professor at Stanford University Law School whose expertise is in energy law and regulation and environmental law.

"The group will work in the U.S., Europe, China, India, and Brazil, he said. The problem of global warming is primarily a political problem at this point, Soros said. 'The science is beyond dispute, but how do we achieve the objectives we all know are necessary? That is a political problem.' The organization will address subjects such as carbon-emissions trading."

The science is beyone dispute, if you know what's good for you, that is. How much of Soros' billions will be paid to economic hitmen?

Soros is also funding research into nano-generators powered by pinwheels to see how many people take him seriously.
