Everyone Can Fight ‘Climate Change’ After Paris Exit Or Something

What Donna Vickroy is missing in her Chicago Tribune “news” story….yes, this opinion piece is in the news section… is that most Warmists do not want to fight ‘climate change’, then want the government to force Other People to fight it

Everyone can fight climate change after Paris exit, save money in process, experts say

Want to help save the world and a few bucks in the process?

Despite President Donald Trump’s recent decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement, across the nation, several state and local officials are carrying on with the terms of the pact. On June 1, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced the Windy City would continue to pursue its plan to reduce greenhouse emissions.

Even without a national agenda to reduce carbon emissions, local nature defenders say there is plenty that average folks right here in the Southland can do to take better care of the planet and enrich their own lives.

Gareth Blakesley is operations manager at Lake Katherine Nature Center and Botanic Gardens in Palos Heights, and Lambrini Lukidis is spokesperson for Cook County Forest Preserves.

“Ninety-nine percent of scientists in the world believe that climate change is caused by human endeavor,” Blakesley said. But there are ways humans can counter the damage.

Now we’re apparently up to 99%. If Ms. Vickroy was actually practicing Journalism, she’d challenge Blackesley to prove it.

Anyhow, what can you do?

While everyone should be familiar with the importance of recycling, he said, “People don’t always think about reducing their impact at the beginning, when purchasing. Any time you buy plastic, even if it’s recyclable, there’s an energy cost. So at the grocery store, look for things that aren’t plastic-wrapped or shop in places that don’t have as much plastic wrap.”

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the Cult of Climastrology co-opting real environmental initiatives like recycling. In fact, the majority of the missive is about co-opting environmental initiatives.

Other ways to go easier on the environment, he said: share a ride, take public transportation, make sure home windows and doors are insulated, don’t set your thermostat above 68 in winter or below 72 in summer, and think long-term usage when shopping.

Normal things that do not really require sacrifice. By this measure, I’m pretty compliant. I keep it at 68 in the winter and 72 in the warm months.

Another way people can be environmentally savvy particularly during vacation season, he said, is to mitigate the environmental cost of long-distance travel.

“My wife and I just recently went to Alaska, which is a 6-hour flight from here,” he said.

So, instead of saying “we’re killing the earth with our fossil fueled travel, we should forgo this trip”, they simply paid for carbon offsets, which is like paying the speeding ticket because you don’t want to stop speeding. Spend a couple bucks to Feel Good while making no sacrifice.

    Actually, what climate realists want is for everyone to pitch in. It will take everyone.

  2. Jl says:

    Yes-it wil take everyone for what? For everything that was supposed to happen that hasn’t?

    For what all reasonable and educated folk know is our future. Unless we act.

    Of course, you are one of the few deniers who still deny that the Earth of warming.

      So now it is being “reasonable and educated” to think that we can possibly predict what will happen 100 years from now with a completely chaotic and Unpredictable system.

      If this was possible, if we understood how the climate works, the computer models that this whole farce is based on would be accurate. They are NOT. NONE of them are. None of the doom and gloom predictions have happened. The Arctic still has ice. My kids know all too well what snow looks like. Severe hurricanes and tornadoes are not increasing. They have had decades to prove their theory and have failed just as badly as their models have.

      Well that certainly disqualifies little jeffuckery.

    That is a good line!

    Fighting Climate Change and joining the Paris Climate Agreement are not the same thing.

    The media always leaves out the massive transfer of funds connected to this program that has little to do with CO2 reduction.

    Those Americans who object to the U.S. can still send a cheque for 1000.00 or so to the UN Climate Green Fund.
    Not doing so would make you a hypocrite.

    If everyone in the U.S. who objects to Trump’s decision did so, that would be a great deal of money.
    Also, if the world’s climate is in such dire straits, then the 195 participant countries can pay the U.S. to dramatically reduce their carbon footprint. If this seems absurd, then why is it not absurd the other way around. The reduction of CO2 will be resolved through technology.
    I only wish that the billion dollars the U.S. already paid were instead invested in finding a reliable alternative to the combustible engine.

    Even James Hansen and other major Climate Alarmists did not support the Paris Climate Agreement. Claiming it would do little to solve the problem and was more focussed on wealth redistribution.
    That is why the new Chairman of the IPCC is Hoesung Lee whose background is in “The Economics of Climate Change.” They wanted an expert to help divvy up the funds!
