No matter how President Obama spins his proposed environmental and energy policies, they all amount to the same thing: a power grab. In his new book, Power Grab, bestselling author Christopher Horner shows how Team Obama wants to take critical decisions about our energy and environment out of your hands and hand them over to politicians, extreme environmental groups, and foreign governments. From determining which kind of energy is “clean,” to subjecting us to extreme environmental treaties, to forcing us to comply with economically detrimental cap-and-trade legislation, Horner shows how Obama and the liberals in Congress don’t just want to run the government; they want to run your life. A shocking look at how the Obama administration wants to impose mandates, raise taxes, and subjugate our authority to international organizations such as the United Nations, Power Grab reveals an out-of-control government that will make America—and the lives of its citizens—worse.
