The Green New Deal Must Be Global Or Something

Poverty and eco-fascism for all!

The Green New Deal Must Be Global
For a planet-wide climate crisis, solutions must also span the planet.

June 2019 was the hottest June in recorded history. July was even hotter — in fact, it was the hottest month ever recorded worldwide, as a wide swath of the continental United States sweltered with heat indexes of over 100 degrees.

Unless new action is taken to curb emissions driving the climate crisis, warns the Union of Concerned Scientists in a new report, the worst is yet to come. By mid-century, nearly one-third of Americans could be experiencing a month or more every year with a heat index above 105 degrees.

Add in more frequent storms, flooding, and wildfires, and the scale of the crisis is harder and harder to ignore. Public opinion polls show that a majority of registered U.S. voters now favor the ambitious Green New Deal, details of which remain to be spelled out. But it’s clear that the crisis is global, and that solutions cannot be limited by national borders.

This means action on multiple fronts in all countries to prevent catastrophic worldwide damage. But both the drivers and the effects of climate change are distributed unevenly. The most vulnerable countries have contributed the least to causing the crisis. Rich countries, through their greenhouse gas emissions, have contributed the most.

Actual data shows that July was not the hottest ever recorded, but, that’s immaterial. When cold records are pointed out climate cultists will say that’s just weather. Or blame it on ‘climate change’. But, it doesn’t prove anthropogenic causation. Just warmth. Which happens during periods. And people might say they support the GND in theory, but, in practice, most aren’t willing to pay $10 a month to Do Something about Hotcoldwetdry.

The Green New Deal: Poverty for Everyone!

Johnson, the Texas Democrat who extended Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal with his own Great Society, was an old-school liberal, certainly on domestic policy. The political activist-agitators LBJ impugned then as “liberals” are today’s progressives—one might even call them reactionaries of the left.

Epitomizing them is Saikat Chakrabarti, the outgoing chief of staff for freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y). Chakrabarti recently starred in a Washington Post article. The spotlight left a key to the influential staffer’s undemocratic mentality in shadows.

Chakrabarti, 33, acknowledged “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” Ocasio-Cortez’s multi-trillion dollar zero-carbon emissions mirage, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all… Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”

If people had the actual reasons for the GND and were told what it would actually do, would support among Independents collapse, and, heck, even drop below 50% for Democrats? Yes.

Chakrabarti seems to have deduced two things. First, he saw a glass largely full and still filling but for some still empty, and concluded he must first shatter the glass. After that, he apparently failed to consider that the dystopian streets of San Francisco — homeless people living in tents and defecating on sidewalks near high-rent high-rises, and the middle class and affordable housing squeezed by heavy taxes and constrictive zoning — might be a result of local “progressive” politics. The problem is that if his “change-the-entire-economy-thing” would ever be imposed, America as a whole might resemble those dystopian streets. If Soviet Russia, Cuba or Venezuela come to mind, consider India before 2014, when its prime minister, Narendra Modi, was elected.

San Francisco is a good approximation. The cost of living is through the roof. Rents are sky high, housing is sky high, and energy is sky high. Food is expensive. Everything is expensive. The GND is not about the climate or environment, it is about eco-fascism and instituting an Authoritarian governmental system based around the Socialistic belief in controlling the economy. But, it’s not real Socialism, since that would require that the government mostly leave us alone in our private lives. The GND would put heavy controls on citizens and private entities. Explain this to people, and let’s see how those polls go.

    Communists have always thought the only way their ideas could work, or pretend to work, would be if there were no alternative. See: Cold War.

    There idea of global is the UNITED STATES will pay for everything. End our own use of fossil fuels ban the production of Oil and Natural gas and coal while the rest of the world builds a windmill or two and a few solar panels.

    Thats what they really mean. In the meantime a world war will break out because the US which is the largest producer of carbon based fuel will no longer be making or producing any of these things and the entire world economy will collapse.

    I find it truly amazing how the left is so unhinged they have not thought thru the consequences of their action. They still are of a mind that 90 trillion dollars will fix our own problems when really we would need 900 trillion to fix the worlds problems caused by the US stopping all production of fossil fuels and ending 50 percent of the worlds commercial aviation.

    Our military would no longer be able to protect EUROPE which in turn would see it fall prey to Russia. Nor could we protect Asia which would see it fall prey to China.

    then the USA would be next. But hey. At least our commie leftists would be happy speaking Chinese instead of Russian….right.

    Unhinged and dangerous is the only way to describe the left. The difference is they cloak their intentions in the pretense of saving the world.

    No one goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.

    William Teach: Actual data shows that July was not the hottest ever recorded

    Actual data shows that July was the hottest month on record. A reanalysis data-set shows that three of the four warmest months since 1979 have been since 2016.
