Beto Releases ‘Climate Change’ Plan, Says We Only Have Ten Years Left

Yes, guy who talks in the 3rd person of himself a lot is Concerned. So concerned he did this

Nothing like taking a long fossil fueled trip to yammer about ‘climate change’, eh? Remember, he’s from Texas (and he traveled around California after the Yosemite stunt)

Beto: We only have ’10 years’ left on Earth if we don’t address climate change

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke sounded the alarms on Monday, saying that civilization has only “ten years” left on Earth if no action is taken on climate change.

The former Texas congressman unveiled the first major policy proposal of his candidacy, which is a climate change initiative that would cost $5 trillion in over 10 years in hopes of reaching zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Appearing on MSNBC, O’Rourke promoted his proposal but was asked about his prior support from the oil and gas industry, and whether the relationship would be a problem going forward.

“Do you see the oil and gas industry as an opponent in that? Won’t you have to declare yourself in opposition to their interests?” MSNBC host Chris Hayes asked.

O’Rourke responded “yes,” but said he is optimistic that the industry will take part in his initiative.

Guess who’s going to pay for it? The rich companies and people, of course! But

O’Rourke’s plan, which also includes a promise to use executive authority to curb the leakage of methane — a powerful greenhouse gas — from the oil and gas sector, may be an attempt to mute criticism the candidate is too cozy his home state’s oil and gas industry. His vote to end a 40-year ban on the export of crude oil in 2015 and other votes seen as fossil friendly have led some progressive activists to question his commitment to fighting climate change.

Is he a Believer, or just pandering to the Cult of Climastrology? One sect of Warmists is not buying

The Sunrise Movement, a progressive grassroots group aligned Ocasio-Cortez, criticized O’Rouke’s plan as not being aggressive enough. The Green New Deal calls for net-zero emission by 2030, 20 years sooner than O’Rourke’s climate vision.

“Beto claims to support the Green New Deal, but his plan is out of line with the timeline it lays out and the scale of action that scientists say is necessary to take here in the United States to give our generation a livable future,” Varshini Prakash, Sunrise’s executive director, said in a statement.

The Sunrise Movement was less then pleased, since these youths (including using pre-teen children as props) are big supporters of AOC’s Green New Deal, and are traveling around the country (in fossil fueled vehicles) to tell people about it.

Nice try, Beto. He’s not worth his own climate clown photoshop yet, though.

    What, we’ve got ten more years now? I thought that we were all going to die in 2016 or something like that.

    The truth is that, as long as there is a political axe to grind, it will never, ever be quite too late to do anything.

    It was just a week ago that Senatrix Kamala Harris (D-CA), another presidential candidate, promised to “sign a series of executive orders on gun control if Congress fails to pass comprehensive legislation in her first 100 days in the Oval Office.”

    Seems that them Democrats loves them some bypassing of Congress, though they sure hate it when Donald Trump does it.

    TEN YEARS> Quick. Jeffy and Zachy need to donate all their money. Sell everything they have to give to someone. I dont know who. But someone to save us. All those billionaires who continue to build mansions and fly the world in jets need to donate every penny they have to someone. I don’t know who to save us.

    We are all Going to die!!! THE SKY IS FALLING. THE SKY IS FALLING. The insane left wants you to pay higher taxes to SAVE THE PLANET. Thats it higher taxes will prevent farmers from running their tractors and truckers from filling your grocery stores with food and TRAINS from moving goods to markets. HIGHER TAXES will make sure all those people who just got jobs will no longer have jobs because there wont be nothing to fuking build. No electricity because there is no demand.

    The RV industry……GONE. The airline industry……GONE….UNION JOBS…..GONE< GONE. BUT WE NEED TO BUILD 300 million battery operated cars but how are we going to charge them when all the fossil fuel fired plants are shuttered and collecting dust.

    The democrats have LOST THEIR FUKING MINDS! They have no policy other than to scaremonger everyone. THE GOP ARE RACISTS. THE SKY IS FALLING.

    A VOTE FOR A DEMOCRAT is a vote for ending America as YOU HAVE GROWN TO KNOW IT….AND WHEN YOU NO LONGER HAVE THE INTERNET< CELL PHONES AND COMPUTERS AND GAMING CONSOLES then perhaps you kids will wake up and realize you have been brainwashed by communists with an agenda.

    AN AGENDA TO DESTROY AMERICA.

      Mangy fell off the wagon again!

      If the price of fossil-fuel based energy had been made to reflect its actual COST we would likely not have this problem now.

      DOOM! MANGY SAYS, DOOM! WE’RE ALL DOOMED IF WE LISTEN TO ANYONE OTHER THAN tRump!! DOOMED!
