(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- A recent report from the Washington Free Beacon reveals that the Biden administration’s latest climate change appointee studied at a Chinese university that conducts research for the People’s Liberation Army.
Earlier this month, the White House tapped Dr. Yue Chen to serve as chief climate risk officer for the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. In this role, Chen will be responsible for developing “climate risk management frameworks for the federal banking system.”
Chen holds a degree in chemical engineering from Tsinghua University which has been flagged for its involvement in “high level” defense research as well as its involvement in cyberattacks on behalf of the Chinese military.
The Australian Strategic Policy Institute reported that Tsinghua University has conducted defense research into “artificial intelligence, air-to-air missiles, navigation technology, instrument science, and materials science.”
Chen is also a proponent of ESG, the “environmental, social, and governance” guidelines that investment managers and insurance companies use to gauge a company’s commitment to the progressive agenda of diversity and climate change.
Last year, Chen appeared on a panel discussing ways to pressure industries into leaving “fossil fuels behind” and redirecting their investments “toward solving the climate crisis.”
Will Hild, the executive director of Consumers’ Research, told the Free Beacon that Chen’s educational background at “CCP training grounds” is concerning. He also noted that Chen’s appointment is part of the Biden administration’s broader effort to impose ESG policies within the federal bureaucracy.
Last year, Biden nominated Saule Omarova to head up the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. Omarova studied at Moscow State University in the 1980s and earned a “Lenin scholarship.” However, the White House was forced to pull her nomination after Democrat Senators announced they would oppose her confirmation over Omarova’s support for ending fossil fuels.
