Obama Climate Czar to execs and staffers “Put nothing in writing, ever”

Posted by iusbvision on July 10, 2009

Carol Browner who was Clinton’s EPA director (and one of the worst ever whose policies lead to massive forest fires and higher fuel costs) is now the White House Climate Czar. Browner struck a blow for Obama’s “transparency promise” by instructing execs and staffers  to “Put nothing in writing, ever”.

Washintgon Examiner:

Carol Browner, former Clinton administration EPA head and current Obama White House climate czar, instructed auto industry execs “to put nothing in writing, ever” regarding secret negotiations she orchestrated regarding a deal to increase federal Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards.

Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-WI, is demanding a congressional investigation of Browner’s conduct in the CAFE talks, saying in a letter to Rep. Henry Waxman, D-CA, that Browner “intended to leave little or no documentation of the deliberations that lead to stringent new CAFE standards.”

Federal law requires officials to preserve documents concerning significant policy decisions, so instructing participants in a policy negotiation concerning a major federal policy change could be viewed as a criminal act.
