Comrade Bernie Releases His Own Green New Disaster

It’s a doozy

This thing is big and crazy, and it’s hard to know where to end as there’s so much Cult of Climastrology crazy. On the bright side, it doesn’t include the notion of “bringing climate deniers to justice”, as his plan did in 2016, which meant to prosecute Wrongthink. Though, it does mention “justice” 20 times. Here’s a bit of the overview

  • Reaching 100 percent renewable energy for electricity and transportation by no later than 2030 and complete decarbonization by at least 2050 – consistent with the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change goals – by expanding the existing federal Power Marketing Administrations to build new solar, wind, and geothermal energy sources. (his plan does, in fact, look to get rid of all use of fossil fuels by 2030, when you read deeper. Nutso level 1)
  • Ending unemployment by creating 20 million jobs needed to solve the climate crisis. These jobs will be good paying, union jobs with strong benefits and safety standards in steel and auto manufacturing, construction, energy efficiency retrofitting, coding and server farms, and renewable power plants. We will also create millions of jobs in sustainable agriculture, engineering, a reimagined and expanded Civilian Conservation Corp, and preserving our public lands. (Ending unemployment. Will people be forced to work, Comrade? And there’s no need for automotive manufacturing, because fossil fuels are banned)
  • Directly invest an historic $16.3 trillion public investment toward these efforts, in line with the mobilization of resources made during the New Deal and WWII, but with an explicit choice to include black, indigenous and other minority communities who were systematically excluded in the past. (yes, he wrote $16.3 trillion. He thinks the money will come from all sorts of sources, like suing fossil fuels companies, The Rich, Wall Street, etc, never realizing that the citizens will be completely boned)
  • Justice for frontline communities – especially under-resourced groups, communities of color, Native Americans, people with disabilities, children and the elderly – to recover from, and prepare for, the climate impacts, including through a $40 billion Climate Justice Resiliency Fund. And providing those frontline and fenceline communities a just transition including real jobs, resilient infrastructure, economic development. (you get a justice and you get a justice and everyone gets a justice!)
  • Expanding the climate justice movement. We will do this by coming together in a truly inclusive movement that prioritizes young people, workers, indigenous peoples, communities of color, and other historically marginalized groups to take on the fossil fuel industry and other polluters to push this over the finish line and lead the globe in solving the climate crisis. (see?)

How to pay for it?

This plan will pay for itself over 15 years. Experts have scored the plan and its economic effects. We will pay for the massive investment we need to reverse the climate crisis by:

  • Making the fossil fuel industry pay for their pollution, through litigation, fees, and taxes, and eliminating federal fossil fuel subsidies.
  • Generating revenue from the wholesale of energy produced by the regional Power Marketing Authorities. Revenues will be collected from 2023-2035, and after 2035 electricity will be virtually free, aside from operations and maintenance costs.
  • Scaling back military spending on maintaining global oil dependence.
  • Collecting new income tax revenue from the 20 million new jobs created by the plan.
  • Reduced need for federal and state safety net spending due to the creation of millions of good-paying, unionized jobs.
  • Making the wealthy and large corporations pay their fair share.

Shared poverty.

We will end greed in our energy system. The renewable energy generated by the Green New Deal will be publicly owned, managed by the Federal Power Marketing Administrations, the Bureau of Reclamation and the Tennessee Valley Authority and sold to distribution utilities with a preference for public power districts, municipally- and cooperatively-owned utilities with democratic, public ownership, and other existing utilities that demonstrate a commitment to the public interest. The Department of Energy will provide technical assistance to states and municipalities that would like to establish publicly owned distribution utilities or community choice aggregation programs in their communities. Electricity will be sold at current rates to keep the cost of electricity stable during this transition.

So, the Government will own the power? All of it? Da, Comrade. He also wants a smart grid, which is code for “government having the ability to turn your power off when they need to.”

Phase out the use of non-sustainable sources. This plan will stop the building of new nuclear power plants and find a real solution to our existing nuclear waste problem. It will also enact a moratorium on nuclear power plant license renewals in the United States to protect surrounding communities.

Nuclear is actually pushed by many leading climate cultists, because it is effectively carbon neutral, and provides immense power for the size. I guess we’ll all be powering our homes with unicorn farts.

And there I will stop, otherwise this will become gigantic, because it continues on and on and on. It’s a lot of money, and it’s a lot of Central Government growth, not too mention control of citizens, businesses, the agricultural and energy sectors, essentially limiting movement of citizens, and causing their cost of living to not only skyrocket, but degrade.

    What a clown. “To recover from, and prepare for climate impacts…”. Hey Bernie-recover from what? Good luck on that…

    So, Товарищ Sanders is going to replace the 63.5% of total sparktricity currently produced using fossil fuels, in eleven years? He’s going to rebuild six out of every ten operating power plants in the United States, in eleven years?

    And in eleven years, no one will be allowed to drive anything but a plug-in electric vehicle? Who’s going to pay all of the poorer people who can’t afford to just dump their then-worthless cars and buy a new Chevy Dolt?

    Socialists are totally divorced from reality.

    I hope he’s OK with nuclear plants, ’cause they contribute 19.3% of our electricity.

    This gasbag was in Cheeko ( old timers spell it that way) CA today spouting his bilge. He was to come up to what is left of my town, Paradise, to push this crap too. Didn’t notice if he made it or not. The real locals probably would have run his sorry ass out of town.

    Fox News Video – Beauty queen claims she was dethroned for supporting Trump

    OK, for those who keep score, such as it is, Trump is polling approval from half of Hispanics and 30% of blacks.

    This is off Zog, who doesn’t like Trump very much.

    Truth in advertising:

    MOE is 3.3 and the sample is only 900 (ought to be a bit more than 3x that), but, give the man credit, they’re likely voters.

    To quote, If Trump wins half of Hispanics and a quarter of African Americans in 2020, Democrats will be in trouble!

    I’m the first to say we’re a year from the start of the real campaign and have no idea who the Demos will run (I’m betting on No One/Someone Else), so you should take this with a grain of salt big enough to frost a margarita the size of Brazil, but (and this is a bigger but than Rosie O’Donnell) this tells why the Gray Lady has suddenly given up on collusion and recession and is going to base the next year’s “reporting” on slavery and what a racist Trump is.

    I’d say they’ve got a tough sell.

    • Doom and Gloom says:

      totally agree with your assessment. Unreported in the last couple of weeks is the democrats have started pre-impeachment proceedings. Gathering evidence, etc. for most likely their base to be appeased at least for a few more months.

      The left is in huge trouble, last night Dr. Steve Turley reported that the DNC is hosting FUNDRAIERS…plural….3 to be exact in MEXICO because NO ONE in the US is giving the Democrats any money.

      Right now the DNC is 6 million in debt according to the DNC, not guesstimates by partisans. The GOP has no debt and Trump and the RNC is on record to raise 2.5 billion for the election in 2020, which pales in comparison to the 1.2 billion raised by the DNC in 2016.

      This is why I am saying the right needs to get out ahead of this recession talk. If one hits and the indicators are there, it is cyclical. If the GOP is out in front of it and seen as caring and compassionate, and they do the right things, it will be over by election time and they will suffer little if any repercussions from it.
