Low Polling Jay Inslee Rolls Out More Big Government ‘Climate Change’ Plans

It’s a strange plan, as it appears to be more about controlling farmers, the agriculture sector, and increasing taxes and fees

Inslee completes climate change policy proposals with plans aimed at agriculture

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee released a plan on Wednesday to enlist farmers and agriculture workers in combating climate change, completing the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate’s series of proposals aimed at making fighting a warming climate a central part of the federal government’s policies.

Inslee’s latest plan — titled “Growing Rural Prosperity” — ties revitalizing rural America and ending President Donald Trump’s trade wars together with incentivizing farmers to take steps that help remove carbon emissions from the atmosphere.

Inslee, who has staked his candidacy on combating climate change, has released a series of plans that tie different issuesfacing the United States — from the economy to foreign policy — to battling climate change. Wednesday’s plan is his sixth such proposal and, according to a senior aide, his final major climate policy rollout.

Surprisingly, he’s polling at 1% and didn’t even qualify for the Hotcoldwetdry townhall.

The latest proposal pledges to triple the budget for the Conservation Stewardship Program — which looks to help farmers conserve aspects of their land — to $3 billion. The governor’s plan would also launch an initiative that would pay farmers who take certain steps to remove carbon from the environment and would increase the federal government’s research into agricultural innovations aimed at capturing carbon.

The plan takes aim at other issues facing rural America and farmers in particular. Inslee dedicates part of it to strengthening farmworkers’ rights, including protecting their right to join a union. And he proposes expanding rural broadband access by requiring that large technology companies pay into the Universal Service Fund, a program within the Federal Communications Commission that subsidizes telephone access to certain parts of the country.

Remember, though, this is all about Science, not politics!

Though voters have named the climate crisis among their top issues, Inslee and his proposals have not found a great deal of success on the campaign trail.

Again, people may Care in theory, but, in the Real World, it’s low hanging fruit. No one really wants to sacrifice.

Late evening update: guess I wasted my time writing this post

Jay Inslee Quits 2020 Race — Before His Long-Awaited Climate Change Debate

Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington state announced Wednesday evening on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show that he is leaving the 2020 presidential race — two weeks before a climate change debate for which he had campaigned.

So, now, he’s going to what, go back to doing the job the people of Washington elected him to do? Nah, I bet he’ll continue to be insufferable in pushing Hotcoldwetdry stuff, even though it keeps getting shot down in Washington.

    Our wonderful Guv, Inslee, is a one-trick Climate Pony. The pony died, Jay. Go back to Olympia and STFU so we don’t have to so much as look at you, okay.

    We haven’t had a decent Governor since the Libtards gained control of the voting system in the Sound…

    Born and raised in Washington.
    Have thought about moving back, but my home state has just gone too far gunney-bag.

    Dixie was the last Governor I liked, and even that wasn’t 100%.
    She was the last Democrat I ever voted for.

    I live in Rural America and we are already being revitalized through Trump’s actions.

    Governor Inslee has dropped out, but he’s still hopeful!

    Jay Inslee drops out of the 2020 presidential race
    The climate change-focused candidate told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that he had “never been so confident” of America’s ability to tackle the issue.
    By Dareh Gregorian and Ali Vitali | Aug. 21, 2019, 9:10 PM EDT / Updated Aug. 21, 2019, 11:53 PM EDT

    Washington Gov. Jay Inslee is dropping out of the 2020 Democratic presidential race, he announced Wednesday night on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show.”

    Inslee plans to send an email to supporters on Thursday announcing that he will run for a third term as governor, two sources close to Inslee told NBC News on condition of anonymity.

    “It’s become clear that I’m not going to be carrying the ball. I’m not going to be the president, so I’m withdrawing tonight from the race,” he told Maddow, vowing he’d help keep the other 2020 candidates focused on issue of climate change, the centerpiece of his campaign. “I’ve been fighting climate change for 25 years, and I’ve never been so confident of the ability of America now to reach critical mass to move the ball.”

    Inslee’s presidential campaign was bookended with pleas to take climate change seriously.

    “This is our moment to put the greatest threat to our existence, to our economy, to our health, at the very top of the nation’s agenda,” Inslee said in March at his campaign’s kickoff event in Seattle.

    Inslee put out a detailed 10-year plan on how he’d move the country to clean energy, spurring other candidates to put out their own plans. Butting heads with the Democratic National Committee, or DNC, he demanded that the organization hold a debate focused on climate change.

    Elwood Dowd most seriously hurt.
