Unfortunately, the left has discovered that there is not only serious money in promoting man-made global warming (just take a look at Al Gore’s balance sheet), but also tremendous power. By promoting legislation to overhaul business the liberal left sees their opportunity to not waste this crisis, but to destroy real economic freedom.
