Hotcold Take: The Democrat Debates Are Really All About ‘Climate Change’ In Disguise

Weren’t we told that ‘climate change’ is all about Science? Strange how it always seems to be about politics

THE DEBATES WILL BE ABOUT CLIMATE—DISGUISED AS OTHER ISSUES

SHHHHH. DON’T TELL anyone, but Jay Inslee is going to get a presidential debate focused on climate change.

Inslee, the governor of Washington state and one of two dozen candidates vying for the Democratic Party’s nomination for president, has been agitating for such a single-topic debate for months. Other candidates have signed onto the idea, and activists within the party have amplified the message. But Tom Perez, chair of the Democratic National Committee, said nuh-uh. “I concluded the DNC could not allow individual candidates to dictate the terms of debates or limit the topics discussed,” Perez wrote in a post on Medium.

Starting Wednesday night, when 10 candidates kick off debate season … and then Thursday, when a second tranche gets together … and then over the course of 11 more debates … Inslee will get what he wants. Because every single issue that a presidential aspirant could conceivably talk about is, at heart, intertwined with climate change. Jobs, the economy, national security, immigration, energy, housing—they’re all facets of the same crystal. The science is clear; the politics, less so. It’ll be a climate debate, all right; the question is what the candidates will do about it.

Well, really, this is correct, because the whole ‘climate change’ push isn’t about science: it’s about taking random weather events that happen during a low ranking Holocene warm period and proclaiming Doom, which allows Authoritarian styled politicians to grab more power, more taxes and fees, while limiting freedom. The Cult of Climastrology has taken a real thing, immediately blamed Mankind, and used this to hijack every single issue they can think of.

One of the best reasons to talk about climate change and its effects in an all-Democrat debate might well be to reach Republicans—younger ones, at least. The moderate wing of that party is starting to see climate change as an imminent policy issue and a political vulnerability, especially in places like Miami, site of the debates and deeply vulnerable to hurricanes and rising sea levels. “Younger Republicans are much more open to the Democratic message about this,” Leiserowitz says. “They’re like, how come nobody in our party is talking about it, and when they do, they’re saying it’s a hoax?”

On the other hand, Democrats will worry about treading carefully so as to not blow up their electoral map. Republicans have been able to couch their lack of action and obstruction on climate laws as economic caution. They’ll say that limitations on greenhouse gases and changes in energy use threaten jobs and economies in parts of the country already in trouble…

Which is why I want them to talk about ‘climate change’ and their policy proposals. It’s easy to whine about it and say we need to Do Something. The minute people start hearing about what the policies will cost them, they tune out and say “no way in hell.” Seriously, 68% say they wouldn’t be willing to pay $10 more a month on their power bill for ‘climate change’. Heck, 43% say they aren’t will to pay $1 more a month.

    ” Heck, 43% say they aren’t will to pay $1 more a month.”

    Probably because deep down, even climate change activists know that raising taxes on energy has no effect on climate or any of the claimed man-made causes of climate change. It’s just another cold set of hands on the tax cow teats. Democrats should try couching this as “only rich people will be taxed to stop climate change”. That seems to work well for them on other issues.

    In the first hour the only allusions to climate change regarded America’s potential in the world’s burgeoning green economy. So far, all seem much smarter than Big Orange – certainly more familiar and thoughtful regarding policy.

    tRump is busy trading insults with the US Women’s Soccer team, yelling about Robt Mueller and sending out his misspelled lies.

    Worst. President. Ever. The descendants of President James Buchanan of grateful for tRump, as their ancestor becomes the SECOND WORST US President!

      I do believe James Buchanan was a Democrat. And some say a queer.

      Why do you hate homosexual Democrats?

      So far, all seem much smarter than Big Orange – certainly more familiar and thoughtful regarding policy.

      Then why are none of them President of the United States? Clearly, Trump is the better man and even you recognize it.

      Big Orange, indeed. Got the hots for him?

      Misspelled? I notice he’s got your feeble attention. He’s also outflanking Fake News.

      I know that pains you so.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Why are they not President instead of trump? Russian interference in our election. Everyone knows that. trump lost the popular vote by millions of votes.

        • formwiz says:

          No, he won it. 7 million fraudulent votes don’t count.

          He won by 4 mil. He also won because of the Electoral College which is the lawful measure, but, hey, who’s counting

          You’d think the bunny suit, who says he reveres the Constitution, would know how Presidents are elected.

      Elwood,
      “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.” – Vladimir Lenin
      And those who believe it he called, “useful idiots.”
      But he is wrong. The truth is eternal. Eventually all things come to light and lies are exposed.
      May all come to light for American ‘useful idiots’ before it is too late.
      MAGA

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Bill,

        Many of trump’s useful idiots have already seen the error of their votes. The rest seem to comment here.

        In any event, America will purge itself of trump and his loyal band of misfit toys (you’ll all be here but you’ll be backbenchers again), and real, grown-up Americans will get to work to clean up his messes.

        Peace, out.

          You mean like Gropin’ Joe, who’s been in government for 50 years, but isn’t running on any accomplishments (unlike The Donald), but runs on what he’s finally going to do?

          And the grown-ups were not on display last night.

          You mean like Willie, slobbering Barney, Newsom, Chlamydia Harris?

          It is to laugh.

    Teach, another one to enjoy. More bad news for all those multiple personalities.

    House Democrats convened privately Tuesday to discuss campaign issues and heard a sobering assessment: They’re seen as too focused on impeachment of President Donald Trump and voters are not hearing enough about their work on other issues.

    The findings from Democrats’ internal polling came as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi brushed past mounting calls for impeachment — more than 70 lawmakers now support opening an inquiry.

    The private poll was conducted for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (which may actually have some validity [I’ll explain why when Baghdad Bear comes back with his usual LOL (which I’ll shove up his ass)]).

  4. formwiz says:

    You’d think the klan suit would know that tRump lost the popular vote.

    No, he won all the legal votes. Fraudulent votes don’t count.

    Did you hear that SCOTUS bitch-slapped tRump over his anti-immigrant Census scam?

    No, they can come back with another version. Why must you always lie?

    Oh, that’s right. Your side is the one that always tries something crooked. Like apportioning states based on the number of illegal aliens.

    PS Did you hear that SCOTUS bitch-slapped the Demos over their scheme to have the courts draw Congressional districts?

  5. formwiz says:

    The bunny suit is feeling smug about SCUS and the citizenship question.

    All SCUS did was send it back to a lower court. The Administration can resubmit.

    More to the point, and this will come as a surprise to someone who “reveres” the Constitution, is the fact that Trump is exploring pushing back the kickoff of the census.

    The Constitution only specifies that it be done in the name of apportioning seats. It does not specify a particular date.

    And, yes, Vagina, he has the authority. The census is a function of the Executive and he is Chief Executive.

    Read ’em and weep.

  6. formwiz says:

    They’re all better than Rapin’ Don.

    MADA

    Then why did MSLSD say Trump won the debate last night?

    BTW When was Trump charged and convicted of rape?

    PS MADA? It’s the best you’ve got on the Left? The summit of your creativity?

    No wonder you’re losing.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      The Klan suit’s pointy hat must be constricting his old, old brain. If tRump runs in 2020, he could win but only with outside help like 2016.

      MADA… It’s a start.

      • formwiz says:

        More like the Demos can’t win without Trump’s voters and they aren’t deserting him. This is more of that “Wait till Mule Ears reports” wishful thinking.

        Considering the clown car we’ve seen the past 2 nights, the Demos would need divine intervention not to lose all 50 states.

        MADA… It’s a start. With Gay Pride parades and drag queens reading to 5 year olds?

        It’s a joke.

  7. Kye says:

    When a radical leftist who hates America as much as Elwood does says “MADA” he means increase funding for infanticide an encourage more illegals to drag their children to their deaths trying to enter this “non-decent” nation. To Elwood Cuba is “decent” because they have universal healthcare never mind nobody but the commie bosses get to use it.

    Rest assured if any of those commie idiots who now call themselves “Democrats” wind they will come for our guns, our free speech (that is if their operatives at Facebook, Google and YouTube haven’t already eliminated all but leftist pablum) and then for the low hanging fruit: our IRA’s, Keough’s and other qualified retirement accounts. After all we only can have them because the government allows us and someone has to finance all the free-bees. Then our non-qualified investment portfolios will follow. But the rich kids will get free tuition and the poor (who already have Medicaid) will get “single-payer” along with us middle class who will lose our private insurance and pay the entire tab for everyone. Then we can all enjoy the benefits of socialized health care except of course the CEO’, the media, Hollywood and academic elites, the government “employees” called the Deep State who actually make and enforce the rules against all of us with the barrel of a gun an last but not least the very politicians who exempted themselves from Obamacare before. Then we will all be equal (by communist standards) in a two tier economic state and a one party political state just like they all have.

    Then the leftists can punish us white, Christian bigots and racists for ten billion years of slavery and segregation against the saintly black and queer Americans and take whatever money we have left and pat reparations. Won’t that be a hoot?

    If you want to make America decent Elwood, get rid of the left. It’s they who murder babies and steal other people’s money and who now clamor for war.

    And remember: The KKK was a DEMOCRAT CLUB!!!!
