Democratic Party Platform Calls For WWII Scale Mobilization To Fight Hotcoldwetdry

Anthropogenic climate change has become another one of those issues that Democrats worship over the years. Not enough to really make any big changes in their own lives, mind you, because they really do not care whether it is a scientific fact, nor do they care that it involves little science. This is all about politics, in creating a big and stronger central government, in controlling citizen’s lives, in controlling private entities and the economy, and increasing taxation.

Democratic Platform Calls For WWII-Scale Mobilization To Solve Climate Crisis

This month, the full Democratic Platform Committee approved the strongest statement about the urgent need for climate action ever issued by a major party in this country.

The platform makes for the starkest possible contrast with a party that just nominated Donald Trump — a man who has called climate change a hoax invented by and for the Chinese, who has denied basic reality such as the drought in California, and who has vowed to (try to) scuttle the unanimous agreement by the world’s nations in Paris to take whatever measures are necessary to avert catastrophic warming and keep total warming “well below 2°C.”

In contrast, one party in this country has finally embraced the blunt — and scientifically accurate — language of climate hawks as to what those measures actually entail:

We believe the United States must lead in forging a robust global solution to the climate crisis. We are committed to a national mobilization, and to leading a global effort to mobilize nations to address this threat on a scale not seen since World War II. In the first 100 days of the next administration, the President will convene a summit of the world’s best engineers, climate scientists, policy experts, activists, and indigenous communities to chart a course to solve the climate crisis.

Of course, as I noted yesterday, most countries seem rather lackadaisical when it comes to ratifying the Paris climate agreement. Some are actively hostile to it.

But, regardless, if the U.S. must lead, should not the very people who pushing this lead themselves? Should they not walk the talk, practice what they preach?

The final draft of the platform — which must still be approved by the Democratic National Convention next week — also calls for a price on CO2 and other greenhouse gases: “Democrats believe that carbon dioxide, methane, and other greenhouse gases should be priced to reflect their negative externalities, and to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy and help meet our climate goals.”

Which would significantly raise the cost of living while lowering the standards of living for middle and lower class citizens. Yet, again, the very people who are pushing this refuse to give up their own fossil fuels, to make their own homes 100% renewable energy, to only buy local, to turn their AC up to 85, etc and so on. Put in context of the rest of their platform, this is all about Progressive (nice fascist) government. Read through the full platform. Government, government, government.

    Modern Democrats can’t even spend money properly. With the WPA at least we got some schools and bridges. The Obama stimulus we got a lot of band-aided union pensions slush funds.

    “Democrats believe that carbon dioxide, methane, and other greenhouse gases should be priced to reflect their negative externalities, and to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy and help meet our climate goals.”

    That sentence says it all. demoncrats don’t believe things should be pried to reflect their supply and demand as decided by the market, but rather they should be priced by the whim of what? That’s called a command economy and it will work as well for demoncrats as it did for soviets.

    These fools deny the “law” of supply and demand and worship the “theory” of AGW. Plus, their choice of people to run this scam includes “policy experts” because their experts have been so accurate in the past, “activists” because, well, you gotta have activists so the unions know they’ll be taken care of, an “indigenous people” cause nothing says we are the world like a bunch of know-nothings putting in their two cents.

    I just love the idea of pricing things based on some nebulous perceived negative future results (like they have a crystal ball).

    This whole thing has “scam” written all over it. I guess this should make the Klintons billionaires along with Algore.

    That’s rich. The progressives & nazis borrowed so heavily from one another and shared so many of the same goals they are more or less the same shitheads.

  9. Hoagie says:

    John, you should be aware exactly who the fascists are, ad they’re not us Constitutionalists. Look in the mirror and read from your mentor:

    “We ask that the government undertake the obligation above all of providing citizens with adequate opportunity for employment and earning a living. The activities of the individual must not be allowed to clash with the interests of the community, but must take place within its confines and be for the good of all. Therefore, we demand an end to the power of the financial interests. We demand profit sharing in big business. We demand a broad extension of care for the aged. The government must undertake the improvement of public health.” — Platform of National Socialist German Workers Party, adopted in Munich on February 20, 1920.

    “We are socialists. We are enemies of today’s capitalistic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are determined to destroy this system under all conditions.” – Adolf Hitler, May 1, 1927.

    Hoagie,
    You made an observation that is very appropriate. The reference to Gruber. I just don’t get that the liberals know that they were lied to by Gruber and the administration in reference to health care. They now know that Hillary is a pathologic liar, yet they can’t see it and don’t understand that the laws and regulations and endless problems of this administration have made their lives worse. We have Jeff and John as classic examples of this mindlessness. Neither can understand or accept points that have been made and by some bizarre reasoning think they are doing the common good.

    John,
    You keep referencing the “death panels” as if they are not present. I have told you before that they are. Your lack of awareness of them only shows ignorance.

  12. o0Nighthawk0o says:

    6.Cocker man are you still waiting for the death panels Palin promised you ?

    Yeah, about those ‘panels’ you say don’t exist.

    Against the advice of my wife’s doctor, the one qualified to make medical decisions. One of these panels decided that since my wife’s Lupus screenings were close to normal that she no longer needed her monthly treatments.

    Never mind that they had no real clue about what the effects of stopping these treatments cold turkey would do. But some idiot bureaucrat decided it was best if she stopped. It too 10 months and a lot of Lupus flairs to finally get her treatments restarted. But surprise! They aren’t as effective now as they were before.
