It’s Trump Vs The Planet On ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

Members of the Cult of Climastrology seem a bit upset that Trump is going to actually do what he said during the campaign season and since winning the election, namely, doing away with government sponsored climate change insanity

Trump vs. The Planet: Climate in Crosshairs of Executive Pen

Given what is known about his cabinet picks and plans for fossil fuel extraction and executive actions, the former reality TV star who became the 45th President of the United States on Friday appears poised to kick off a “deregulatory agenda” and take actions to fast-track climate catastrophe.

Michael Halpern, deputy director of the Center for Science and Democracy at the Union of Concerned Scientists, predicts the new administration to continue its shock therapy strategy:

A major strategy has been—and will likely continue to be—to institute radical proposals by overwhelming the public with an avalanche of activity and by attempting to distract us with the president’s cult of personality.

And given the corporate cabinet, a climate-denying transition team, and a dearth of debate on appointees, Halpern expects “significant industry influence over the role of science in government decisions.”

So, instead of the influence of shady interest groups, attempting to impose their views on all citizens by government regulation while fundraising and refusing to implement their beliefs in their own lives, you could get people who are not full of BS.

Trump himself laid out after Election Day what he’d do on his first day in office, including allowing the Keystone XL pipeline to move forward; lifting restrictions on fossil fuel production; and canceling “billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs.”

Excellent!

As Michael Slezak wrote Friday at the Guardian, “regardless of what climate deniers (yes, deniers) like Trump may say about the science, the stark reality is that it is happening now.”

“We are no longer fighting to stop climate change, but fighting to stop a runaway catastrophe,” he added.

And that’s exactly why belief in anthropogenic climate change has plummeted, and is generally a low ranked issue by most Americans: this apocalyptic viewpoint from people who seem less like scientists and more like the person standing on the corner with sign saying “The end is nigh!”

And, to reiterate, the debate from Skeptics is not on warming, but causation. It’s going to be a long, unhinged four years for Warmists. Here’s a clue for them: you lost.

    Keystone pipeline may already be dead.

    Warren Buffet who owns the railroad that transports all the oil from the oilfields is against the pipeline and has bullied Nebraska into opposing the pipeline flowing thru its state.

    Bill Gates who owns a huge stake in the Canadian railroad who currently gets most of its revenue from Oil transports…….is opposed to the pipeline….

    both are democrats….both are all in on AGW….both are the biggest hypocrits on the planet……along with George Soros who bought up huge chunks of COAL STOCKS and owns a majority stake in BRAZIL OIL……

    yet all are AGW proponents…because its politically convienient……they dont get hounded if they were opposed to it despite their actions……this is the kind of shit the right looks at and says….theres no FF’ing way AGW is a problem or its real……No one on the left except whackos take AGW seriously at all….period.

    Today, the Alaska Pipeline is recognized almost universally as a technological marvel, an energy policy success story that reduced American reliance on Middle Eastern oil, and one of the most economically successful infrastructure projects in American history. Over the past 40 years, it has carried 17 billion barrels of oil, worth more than $1.7 trillion in today’s dollars.

    It also helped to rebuild the Alaska economy and made Alaska the second largest oil-producing state in the nation and one of the largest producers in the world. A University of Alaska study estimates that the petroleum industry directly and indirectly supports 110,000 jobs in the state.

    All of this has happened with very little negative environmental impact and even some environmental improvements. Few people would look back and say that the U.S. should have listened to the environmentalist extremists and not built this pipeline.

    The Keystone Pipeline is expected to provide 42,000 jobs. Mostly union jobs….jobs that the Democrats who control the unions failed to grasp how meaningful their rejection of JOBS predominated the three states that carried Trump to victory….WI, MI, PA…..

    Trouble is, the oil industry figured out a couple of years ago that Keystone wouldn’t happen, and have taken alternative transportation methods, primarily rail. The economic impetus for Keystone has diminished.

    “A runaway catastrophe” That CO2 is pretty tricky. It causes catastrophes without showing any evidence of said catastrophes.
