(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama’s new energy and environment coordinator, Carol Browner, former head of the Environmental Protection Agency under President Bill Clinton, was listed as a member of the Socialist International’s Commission for a Sustainable World Society on its Web site as of June 2008.
 
The Web page for the Socialist International’s XXIII Congress on Global Solidarity (June 30 – July 2, 2008) in Athens, Greece, for example, lists the following:
 
“PANEL TWO - How do we strengthen the multilateral architecture for a sustainable future? Carol Browner, Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency under President Bill Clinton, Member of Socialist International Commission for a Sustainable World Society.” 
 
The Web site also includes a photo of Browner speaking at the event.
 
As late as Jan. 5, 2009, the Web site socialistinternational.org listed Carol M. Browner as one of 15 members of the SI’s Commission for a Sustainable World Society, with photo and a brief bio. Today, however, that Commission page does not include Browner’s name or photo.
 
Steven Milloy, author, columnist, and publisher of Junkscience.com, however, captured a screenshot of the SI’s Web page of Jan. 5, as shown here, which names Browner as a member of the commission and provides her bio. 
 
Browner and the Obama transition team have not commented on the postings on the SI Web site or Browner's speech last summer at the SI event in Greece. 
 
The Socialist International headquarters in London and Browner’s office at the White House did not respond to telephone inquiries by CNSNews.com.
 
The SI describes itself as a “worldwide organization of social democratic, socialist and labour parties."
