Global warming alarmists have gained another ally in Hollywood.  This time it’s actress Alicia Silverstone who si best known for her role in the 1995 movie “Clueless”  and has done little of note since that time.

In a phone interview with a reporter for the University of Wisconsin- Madsion’s Badger Herald she stated that she her backing for Barack Obama’s global warming policies started when she learned that “he was not taking money from lobbyists, which is ultimately corporate funding.”

“I was impressed when I heard him talking about how we give corporations free rides regarding their use of the environment,” Silverstone said. “Obama will make corporations pay for the harmful emissions that they put into the air and keep corporations responsible, ” she told the Badger Herald.

But that isn’t in the Obama plan.  What Obama proposes is enacting a cap and trade program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to invest $150 billion over the next 10 years in renewable energy plus a host of other green proposals.

There is no doubt that Obama’s plan will cost corporations plenty but not in the way Silverstone imagines.

Memo to Hollywood: If you are going to get politicall involved please study your candidate’s platform so you don’t look like a total idiot.

For Silverstone though she just can’t help it.
