The executive order establishes a task force of state and local officials purportedly to advise the White House on responding to extreme weather generated by so-called climate change. A section of the order gives the federal government power to recommend how buildings and other structures can be constructed to withstand the effects of climate change, including in response to what it claims are rising sea levels and warming temperatures.
A member of the new task force may be instrumental in deciding which group could certify structures as meeting these new federal “green” requirements.
The task force is made up of seven Democratic governors plus the Republican governor of Guam. One of the governors on the taskforce is Jay Inslee of Washington. Inslee is a founder of the radical Apollo Alliance, which now goes by the name of the Blue Green Alliance.
The Apollo Alliance is led by a number of radicals. Among them is Obama’s former green jobs adviser, Van Jones, who resigned in 2009 after media reports exposed that he founded a communist revolutionary organization and called for resistance against the U.S. government.
Apollo’s New York office is run by Jeff Jones, a founder of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization. Another Apollo leader is Joel Rogers, a founder of the socialist New Party.
