Warmist Senator Sheldon Whitehouse A-OK With Fossil Fueled Energy Plant In His State

Remember when Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) wanted to use RICO statutes to prosecute Skeptics? He’s pushed for carbon fees and had an all night yap session on ‘climate change’. He’s one of the most vocal members of the Cult of Climastrology in the Senate. His senate page is littered with ‘climate change’ yammerings, as is his Twitter page. He’s had his “time to wake up” speeches. He’s been pitching a fit over fossil fuels for a long time. Yet, when it comes to his own backyard, we get

(WPRI) U.S. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse said Thursday he supports plans to build a new gas-fired power plant in Burrillville, despite his longstanding advocacy for policies to tackle climate change.

During an exclusive interview with WPRI.com at his Capitol Hill office, Whitehouse said that while he thinks the world needs to move away from fossil fuels, he views the Burrillville plant as part of the solution to the problem of inadequate natural gas supply in Southern New England. (snip)

“I don’t think it’s valuable from Rhode Island’s perspective to make Rhode Islanders pay high winter gas prices when it doesn’t change the overall complexion of the gas market,” he continued. “So I am not objecting to that particular plant, because it’s a choke point issue.”

So, it’s not fair for his constituents to pay more for his beliefs, but, it’s OK for non-constituents to pay more. And, like most Warmists, he engages in excusemaking to avoid practicing what he preaches, which you’ll see more of if your read the whole article.

    Actually not to prosecute skeptics or deniers, but to prosecute potential corporate criminals.

    We understand why Deniers want it appear that they’re victims, and that they are skeptical, but they’re neither. Denier bloggers like William have nothing to worry about.

    Of course Whitehouse is for putting in a new high efficient natural gas power plant they already get 97% from gas
    They are one of only two states that have zero coal burners
    The other is of course ultra liberal radical left Vermont
    Say Teach how is NC doing. On cleaning up that Dan River coal mess?
