The Green Swindle

If you’ve had a hard time keeping up with events related to the exposure of the global warming hoax over the past year, tune in to tonight’s special edition of Hannity on Fox News at 9:00 p.m. (Eastern). The show is devoted in its entirety to the rise and, we hope, the fall of the hoax. It should make for a valuable contribution to an issue that, unfortunately, remains of political relevance.
The brief promo for the show asks: “Controlling your carbon footprint has become a global fad, but is it all just a con job? And how much green is it costing you?” The show explores the roots of the global warming hysteria, the bogus science used to support it, and how politicians and big business have turned it all into a multibillion dollar industry.
UPDATE: The Competitive Enterprise Institute has sent has sent out a notice regarding the show. Several of its experts appear on the show. Here is CEI’s notice:

Global warming hysteria has fueled the “go green movement.” It’s become a big business with green products and green companies popping up everywhere. How has the green movement affected the American consumers, the way we spend our money, and the way we live? How much is this fad costing us, and are we getting anything out of it? Hannity and his guests will address these matters on the show tonight. CEI energy and environment policy experts Christopher Horner, Myron Ebell, Iain Murray, and R.J. Smith were interviewed for this special edition of the Hannity show.

Our friend Steve Hayward also advises that he was interviewed for the show. Try not to miss it.
