When does Orwell stop being so relevant?

James Connaughton’s job title is Chairman of the White House Council on Environmental Quality but he states publicly that our government will “continue their partnership with the oil and gas sector” while working only with environmental organizations who are “constructive” in terms of “prioritizing domestic production.”

I don’t know if I’m disgusted at the blatant misuse of power slash violation to our environment by those entrusted to protect it or actually relieved that at least they’re finally being upfront with their objectives; which are the same as Chevron’s and the opposite of the Sierra Club’s.
