Say, “How can we tackle Climate Change?”

Weather Underground’s Pamela Bishop does something unusual: she tells Warmists what they can do

Before we answer that question, you should ask yourself whether you can tackle climate control on an individual level or not. Keep asking yourself the same question until and unless you get a positive answer.

Climate control is a big thing, but nothing is going to change until we make changes at an individual level.

Warmists like that, as long as the individual in question is Someone Else. That Guy. Here are her ideas

1. Learn about climate change (so you can nag your friends, family, and coworkers)
2. Recycle and reuse (simply environmentalism, nothing to do with Hotcoldwetdry )
3. Choose your vehicle wisely (Warmists shouldn’t be driving any fossil fueled vehicle)
4. Say no to plastic (the won’t)
5. Second-hand shopping (and give up new tech and fancy clothes? Not happening)
6. Look for the energy star rating (environmentalism and responsible energy use)
7. Use solar products (all Warmists should do this, regardless of the cost and poor energy return)
8. Plant a tree (environmentalism)
9. Look for an environmental career: (suck off the tit of the tax payer doing nothing productive)

Really, almost none of these have anything to do with Hotcoldwetdry. And since Warmists won’t really do anything in their own lives, they want Other People involved by force of government.

    Environmentalism is a good example for what conservatists can accomplish in the face of overwhelming evidence. Today, it’s hard to find a conservatist who would rail against clean air and clean water as they once did. (But let’s not overlook that modern conservatists still oppose the EPA).

    So there is hope that the denialists and deniosaurs will quietly back away from science denialism – many already have. It’s rare to find a deniosaur who won’t admit now that the Earth is warming.

    Teach advocates most of the actions that a good “warmist” does, except not in the name of mitigating global warming. I don’t care why you do the right thing, just that you do the right thing.

    What makes you think she was writing exclusively for those you slur as “warmists?”

    She was just as likely writing for “headupyourass-ists” like you. Our shorthand for “headupyourass-ists” is HUYAs.

    Is she right? Probably not. Of course, if every citizen of Earth did as she suggests it would help, but humans typically don’t act that way, and usually need incentives to do the right thing. Sad, perhaps, but true. Otherwise why give tax breaks (subsidies) for charitable giving?

    Anyway, maybe if you follow some of her advice you HUYAs will just be As.

    Well, when I bought new appliances, I did look for the more efficient ones, and I have planted not one but eight trees on my property.

    I’ve carefully explained to all my warmist acquaintances how they can do their part to reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere: Take a deep breath… hold it!

    Alas none of them are fully committed to saving poor mother earth, sooner or later they all exhale.

    How original! How clever! I tell all my conservative/ headupyourass-ist acquaintances that they can solve the government spending problems by stopping all use of government resources. Alas, none of them are fully committed to saving America, sooner or later they pussy out.

    But, but, but, aren’t you the one who has railed against the various tax beaks and other incentives given to businesses to do what the government saw as the “right thing” at different times?

    I think that we’d all be better off if the busybody interventionists would quit trying to control other people’s lives. The purpose of government should be to provide the minimal services we need, and to protect our rights from infringement by others.
