First off the New Left, isn't that new, they came out of the 60s and 70s, they call themselves Progressives today.
The seeds for what we are experiencing today, the so called "Cap & Trade" was planted back in the 60s. Here are some examples of who came out of this movement, like The Uni bomber. His manifesto begins "1. The Industrial Revolution and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race."

Ayers, Dohrn, and the Weathermen
Ayers and Dohrn, now "respectable" radical professors in Chicago, were among the FBI Most Wanted fugitives because of their nefarious activities with the Weather Underground, also known as the Weathermen, during that infantile spasm of radicalism and insanity called the '60s. The Weathermen banded together to undermine this country's ill-conceived war in Vietnam and foment communist revolution in the United States, as well as "destroy the white racist's society and establish a democratic centralist's government," as Bernadine Dohrn said in 1969 at a Weathermen "war council" in Flint, Michigan.

So What is going on today circa 2009 in Flint, Michigan?
Flint, Michigan. Infamous in Michael Moore’s doc on dying factory jobs. Infamous as hometown of largest bankrupt corporation in America, General Motors. It’s hereby downgraded to Sergeant Motors. That Flint is changing urban planning in America. Data indicates it has the furthest to go to “redcovery.” But what if quality down-sizing is the real goal? Now Flint’s the main city in Genesee County, Michigan where the Land Bank is taking over foreclosed, sub-standard homes. And the homes are being bull-dozed. Gardens, parks and other projects are replacing them. Historic abandoned buildings are being converted to contemporary use. One hotel had been vacant for nearly forty years. “Compact” is the new urban planning word of the day, not “growth.” Keep Reading Here.
In the tumultuous late 60s and early 70s, a social movement known as the "New Left" emerged as a major cultural influence, especially on the youth of America. It was a movement that embraced "flower-power" and psychedelic "consciousness-expansion," that lionized Ho Chi Minh and Fidel Castro and launched the Black Panthers and the Theater of the Absurd. In Return Of The Primitive (originally published in 1971 as The New Left), Ayn Rand, bestselling novelist and originator of the theory of Objectivism, identified the intellectual roots of this movement. She urged people to repudiate its mindless nihilism and to uphold, instead, a philosophy of reason, individualism, capitalism, and technological progress. Editor Peter Schwartz, in this new, expanded version of The New Left, has reorganized Rand's essays and added some of his own in order to underscore the continuing relevance of her analysis of that period. He examines such current ideologies as environmentalism and multiculturalism and argues that the same primitive, tribalist, "anti-industrial" mentality which animated the New Left a generation ago is shaping society today.
