ACORN Enters the Highly Lucrative Global-Warming Hysteria Business

Now the ACORN crime family is jumping on the global-warming alarmism bandwagon, according to (the left-leaning) Worldwatch Institute.

The radical community group, which is now facing voter-registration fraud charges in Nevada, has joined forces with Al Gore‘s Alliance for Climate Protection and other groups for the ultimate taxpayer shakedown: carbon emission controls.

From the Worldwatch article:

Brian Kettenring,  ACORN’s deputy director of national operations, said his group — the largest grassroots community organization of low- and moderate-income people in the United States — was inspired to join the Climate Equity Alliance and work with groups such as the Sierra Club after seeing the vulnerability of cities such as New Orleans to rising sea levels and more intense climatic events. The group, which lobbies for affordable housing and improved education in urban areas, is also encouraged by the hope of “green jobs,” environmentally sustainable employment opportunities.

“ACORN families understand that building a green economy that’s sustainable and builds jobs for working families is good for them, good for the environment, and good for communities,” Kettenring said.

ACORN’s contribution will include direct lobbying of Congress. In the long term, Kettenring expects more ACORN chapters to become involved in green jobs initiatives, such as efforts to collect federal funding for weatherizing urban buildings. […]

Maybe the corrupt ACORN network needs more money to pay its back taxes and mounting legal bills.

Meanwhile, the third annual International Conference on Climate Change came and went in the nation’s capital with virtually no media coverage. The global-warming skeptics’ convention was organized by the free market-oriented Heartland Institute.
