|Almost any proposal can be styled as “Un-American.” Typically this is bundled with wild, inaccurate claims about European regulations (i.e., you can’t do business in Europe at all). You’ll wonder if the denialist has even been to Europe!|
Update: Mark H provides this article as an example of “Unamerican” in today’s Wall Street Journal. It contains, among others, this great example:
The German took the floor first. His was a bold thesis: The economic transformation required to address global warming will bring huge energy efficiencies–and hence huge economic benefits–even if there is no global warming problem. But vested interests in the energy sector stand in the way of that transformation. “We cannot,” therefore, “wait for the industries that in many cases will be the losers . . . to make the necessary changes,” he told the audience of American and European industrialists.
To this American ear, this smacks of the tales about the man who invented a car that runs on water, but was bought out by Detroit to protect their market. But from a European perspective, it makes more sense.
