House Freshman Democrats Want More Money For ‘Climate Change’ Programs

Strangely, none of them are demanding to vote on AOC’s Green New Deal, nor giving up their own giant carbon footprints

House Freshman Democrats Urge Funds for Climate Change Programs

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who is the lead sponsor of the Green New Deal resolution in the House of Representatives, isn’t the only freshman Democratic member of Congress pushing for action on climate change.

More than half of the freshman Democrats in Congress have signed onto a 24 April letter urging the House Committee on Appropriations “to provide robust funding for our nation’s climate change research programs” in fiscal year (FY) 2020 appropriations bills. The letter, dated 16 April, was released on 24 April, after members of Congress signed onto it.

The Trump administration’s FY 2020 budget request“recommends across the board cuts to climate science,” states the letter that was signed by 35 of the 64 newly elected House Democrats, including Ocasio-Cortez. Among those cuts, the letter highlights the administration’s plans to eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Global Climate Change Research Office, decrease the National Science Foundation’s budget by 12%, and slash funding for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research by 41%.

“Without strong funding for climate science programs such as these, we will not be equipped to address the greatest challenge facing our nation today,” according to the letter.

The letter calls for significant funding for climate research at those agencies and others, including NASA, the Department of Energy, and the U.S. Geological Survey.

Basically, this is all about being mad at Orange Man for daring to cut money to programs not based on science. And attempting to spread some taxpayer loot to people who vote Democrat. Part of the letter reads “We have an opportunity and a moral obligation to act on climate.” Yet, these same climaloonies fail to reduce their own carbon footprints. Most of the energy for the House and the office buildings comes from a coal fired plant. When will they demand it be replaced, or at least operate without lights and heat/AC in the House chamber and the offices?

Oh, and the above photo comes from the article. If you hover your mouse over it at the link, the subtext is “fossil fuel processing plants spewing carbon pollution into the atmosphere.” First, CO2 is not a pollutant, but, most of you know that already. Further, what you see is primarily steam, ie, water vapor. Also not a pollutant. But, Warmists are dishonest. We all know that.

    My wife and I are having a brunch with a bunch of friends to celebrate a birthday tomorrow. There will be about twelve of us and one guys wife is a leftist. This should be entertaining. She’s got a degree in some “studies” or another and he’s a dentist. I bet my buddy Roy fifty bucks I can make her storm out before the entree arrives. Actually, if I can’t Roy can. I was thinking of cheating and waiting till everyone was seated and ordered cocktails then whip out my MAGA hat and put it on. Or maybe my new TRUMP 2020 hat.

      Sounds like a great time for everyone except the people around you!

      It’s surprising anyone would want to have brunch with you.

      Why not tell ’em some good ol’ n*gger jokes? Do you know the Earl Butz “loose shoes” joke?

    What that really is a picture of is the Nizhny Tagil Steel Plant in Russia. American power plants are far too clean, usually with no visible emissions, for the Dems and Progs to use for their propaganda pictures. Just like how they use photos of trash concentrations in Manila Harbor backwaters and claim its the great pacific garbage patch so we can’t have plastic drinking straws.

    Only liars use a photo of a Russian steel plant to propagandize for more money for American emissions controls.

    Check out what this professor at the prestigious Oxford University says. If this isn’t a perfect example of climate change psychosis among academics, it’ll do til the psychosis gets here.

    Dr Young-hae Chi, an instructor in Korean at Oxford’s Oriental Institute, part of the prestigious university, thinks this new species will save Earth from annihilation from climate change.

    He believes there is a strong correlation between climate change and alien abductions, the Oxford Student newspaper has reported.

    He says he has identified four types of aliens – small, tall and bold, scaly with snake eyes, and insect-like.

    How embarassing. Remember when universities used to do serious, ethical science? It’s getting harder to remember.

    He seems like one of the more sane doomers out there…..

    HAHA. They always say it is for some program. They don’t actually mention that that means some person with a name takes the money and puts it in his pocket.
