Democrat Contenders: No Drilling, No Nuclear, Urgency On Hotcoldwetdry

Every Democratic Party presidential contender will use massive amounts of fossil fuels to not only travel around the country, but for their campaigns to operate. They’re all pretty much rich people, who also live off the labors of U.S. citizens, so, they aren’t worried about their policies hurting their own lives

Warren unveils 2020 plan to stop drilling on public lands

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a 2020 Democratic hopeful, unveiled an ambitious proposal Monday aimed at protecting public lands and rolling back many of President Trump’s environmental policies.

Warren included in her proposal, published on Medium, plans to immediately halt drilling offshore and on publicly owned lands, as well as restoring the original boundary lines for two national monuments shrunk under Trump.

Warren championed the goals as a way to “preserve wild, natural places for future generations.”

“We must not allow corporations to pillage our public lands and leave taxpayers to clean up the mess. All of us — local communities and tribes, hunters and anglers, ranchers and weekend backpackers — must work together to manage and protect our shared heritage,” Warren wrote.

The first step of her plan would be to place a moratorium on any new fossil fuel extraction on public lands or offshore, as a way to show a commitment to fighting climate change.

Certainly, there are places on “public lands” where we shouldn’t drill, but, Warmists like Warren want to stop all drilling, which hurts you at the pump. Instead, they want to despoil the scenery with solar panels and wind turbines, leaving giant concrete platforms behind, slicing birds and even incinerating them as they fly.


“And I’m sure you’re familiar with the scientific reports that tell us that we have all of 12 years to significantly cut carbon emissions or else they will be irreparable damage to United States and countries all over the world,” Sanders said during a town hall with Fox News Monday night.

So we have a moral responsibility, in my view, to transform our energy system and leave this planet healthy and habitable for our children and our grandchildren, and by the way, when we do that that, we create millions of good-paying jobs,” Sanders said during the Fox News town hall. (snip)

Sanders also told the town hall audience “we should phase out” nuclear power plants — the country’s largest source of greenhouse gas-emissions free electricity. Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum pushed back, however, questioning Sanders’ opposition to nuclear power.

Well, of course he did. Most of the hardcore Warmists do reject nuclear energy. A goodly chunk of the less extremist Warmists are all for nuclear, even if it is just being used as a bridge technology till something else comes along and/or solar and wind become truly viable. Many Warmists are still rooted in their irrational hatred of nuclear energy which goes back decades and decades, including conflating the supposed buildup of nuclear weapons during the Reagan years with nuclear energy.

Inslee: ‘People are coming to realize the urgency’ of climate change

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) said Sunday that “people are coming to realize the urgency” of climate change.

Inslee, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for president in 2020, added during an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he believes focusing on climate change is the best path to the nomination.

“I believe it is the best path because people are coming to realize the urgency of this. Tied with health care it is the number one priority of voters in Iowa and for good reason,” he said.

Urgency, huh? It’s so urgent that most polls have ‘climate change’ as last or next to last on lists of what people are concerned about. Very few news outlets lead with ‘climate change’, and most stories are low hanging fruit. Really, it’s so urgent that most Americans refuse to spend even $10 a month to fight it. But, you do you, Jay.

    Pelosi appears to take new jab at Ocasio-Cortez, says ‘a glass of water’ with a ‘D’ could win their districts

    Meanwhile the Democrats keep attacking each other. The Democrats already are planning on PRIMARYING the seats that the YOUNG TURKS surprisingly primaried in 2018 and defeated several relatively moderate Democrats. Michael Moore and the resistance is faltering, but don’t kid yourself. They are angrier now that ever and they will continue battering each other as well as the right in pure anger over their perceived failure of the Democrats to beat Trump and their made up stories of TRUMP being a racist.

    Trump is not a racist. Trump is a GOP, therefore by fault the narrative is always, all Republicans and conservatives are the evilest people on the planet. Surpassing ISIS and Attila the hun. We spend night and days trying to put billions into the POCKETS OF DEMOCRATIC BILLIONAIRES WHO THEN SPEND THAT MONEY TO DEFEAT US IN ELECTIONS.

    Anyone watching with half a brain should see right thru this but of course with every news outlet in the world spewing this lie, it will not be long until conservatives are hunted down and murdered for our beliefs. Christians hung and Muslims celebrated as conquering heros. All in the name of political power which unfortunately for the left wont include them once the die is cast and the reality of their resistance opened pandora’s box.

    One of my current peeves is that whenever Bernie stands up and announces that stuff should be free, young women in the audience starting screaming like he’s one of the Beatles and its 1964.

    And as always with Bernie, stuff should be free because some other countries do it that way.
