Warmist Super Excited To Enact Carbon Tax After “Pearl Harbor” Moments

Interestingly, like most Cult of Climastrology members, Mark Reynolds, group executive director of the Citizens Climate Lobby, fails to push Cultists to give up their own use of fossil fuels and make their lives carbon neutral. He just wants taxes. It’s almost like this is about empowering government

It’s time to act on climate change with a tax on carbon

Those of us who understand the existential threat posed by climate change have been waiting for the “Pearl Harbor moment” that galvanizes people and politicians alike into taking action to minimize that threat. 2018 is turning out to be a “Pearl Harbor year,” where a majority of Americans support taking action, and we’re ready for Congress to press forward.

We thought the wake-up call on climate change occurred in 2005 when Hurricane Katrina slammed and devastated New Orleans, a disaster that left 1,836 people dead and displaced tens of thousands more. Four years later, when legislation to price carbon made a run in Congress, any sense of urgency to deal with climate change was lost amid partisan squabbling and pushback from special interests.

The next opportunity for action came in 2012 when Superstorm Sandy roared up the East Coast with a storm surge that put much of New York City under water. The cover of Bloomberg Businessweek proclaimed, “It’s Global Warming, Stupid.” But again, nothing happened. Likewise, last year’s back-to-back-to-back storms — Harvey, Irma and Maria — left a swath of destruction from Houston to Puerto Rico totaling some $300 billion in damage. This, too, was not enough to spur action. (snip)

The terrifying vortex of fire that swept through Redding, is the latest Pearl Harbor moment for climate change in a year filled with such moments. Let us hope this year of infamy, together with the growing desire for action, will finally set the wheels in motion for Congress to enact meaningful solutions.

My first thought when I hear about a weather disaster is usually “I hope those people are receiving the help they need”. But perhaps not everyone shares my sense of priorities.

There is that. But, Warmists do not care. They’ll take advantage of every weather event to push their hardcore progressive doctrine, which will do harm to the lower and middle classes. Hundreds of years ago the people “who understand the existential threat” of bad weather blamed witches and the gods. Now they blame trace amounts of carbon dioxide.

    Do you support your taxes funding FEMA so that Eric Worral can continue aiding victims of disasters? Do the politicians you support? We could ask Mr. Worral if he was/is satisfied with our response in Puerto Rico where 2000 Americans died?

    We can work both to reduce CO2 pollution AND aid those harmed by disasters.

      Little Jeffery waltzes past the point.

      This clown has no interest in cutting anything, but he does want taxes raised, and these are taxes that do anything, just punish people.

      Wake up, sweetie, you’re being had.

      I am not sure what the death of 2000 Puerto Ricans has to do with anything from FEMA. Puerto Rico had huge infrastructure issues that the government refused to address prior to the storm.

      After the storm, as always, the people of the US were generous and tried to help Puerto Rico and its citizens. Supplies were sent, money was sent, but the government failed to distribute the goods and so they sat on the docks, rotting.

      That part of the story was in the newspapers and on television, but I have a better source – the family that left the island and whom I took in until they could get a place of their own. We walked them through the paperwork for jobs, got their kids in school, fed and clothed them and watched them head out into the world.

      You always tell us how much money you make Jeffery, so what specifically did you do to help Puerto Rico and the people? Shouldn’t you have done more than people like me and my family? Please enlighten us as to how we hateful conservatives did more than you as a “compassionate, tolerant liberal.”

      “Americans” died in Puerto Rico in great part because the “progressive” government officials stole diaster relief aid that never made it to hurricane victims. Sort of like Puerto Rico is where the farm teams for Baltimore, Chicago, Saint Louis, and Detroit practice.

      Cargo containers full of rotting supplies in PR government warehouses along with 2,000 bodies should be worth some kind of prosecution. Looks like the DOJ/FBI was too involved in an attempted coup to worry about dead “Americans”.

      Prosecution of “Democratic-Socialists” will save lives. Man-made climate change is just a scam to allow the Libtards to steal and destroy our economy. Gore & Gorbachev both understood that game.
