We Have To Deal With Over-Consumption And Give Up Our Modern Lives To Stop ‘Climate Change’

See, Warmists think it’s totally crazy that Skeptics will say that the Cult of Climastrology is trying to drag us back to 1499. Silly Skeptics

Opinion: We must confront the real climate foe: Overconsumption

In August, Bernie Sanders released the most ambitious green new deal yet, a proposed $16.3 trillion investment in clean energy, sustainable agriculture, global climate justice and green-collar jobs.

Just weeks later, Elizabeth Warren released her own climate plan, which would focus several trillion dollars on research, green manufacturing and clean energy.

Unsurprisingly, the two leading progressives in the Democratic presidential field have embraced bold action on climate change. Along with the original Green New Deal, Warren and Sanders’ plans represent the most appropriately ambitious American proposals to date.

And yet, they still miss the mark.

Missing the mark, eh?

The underlying assumption of these proposals is that we can stave off climate change while maintaining our modern way of life. The green economy envisioned by Sanders and Warren relies on exchanging dirty modes of production for cleaner ones. Rather than driving gas-powered cars, we’ll drive electric cars. Rather than heating our homes with dirty power plants, we’ll plug into the solar grid.

But we’ll still enjoy our modern comforts. We’ll maintain our place in the complex web of global trade, which relies on polluting ships, trucks and planes to connect us with our products. We’ll maintain our suburban, siloed residential living patterns which require us to drive to work, to school, to the grocery store and to the pharmacy.

Because massive governmental control of everything isn’t good enough

We must return to traditional urban development patterns which lead to compact, walkable cities and easy access to necessary services like grocery stores and schools. Instead of highways, our communities must be connected with public high-speed rail. Isolated communities must be relatively self-sufficient. We must scale back our energy demand and power our homes through decentralized renewables like solar. We must grow our food locally, as we have for most of human history. And we must undertake a titanic cultural shift towards low-consumption local living.

Funny how the same Warmists won’t do this themselves

Without this vision, we will maintain the status quo of overconsumption and environmental degradation until civilization devolves into a Mad Max-esque dystopia. There is no solution but that which fundamentally reorganizes our society around low-consumption living.

      Pups,
      Great, one of my favorite guys. Tater salad.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Of course that’s a fake quote attributed to Ron White.

        Do you recall that Mr. White ran for President and had this to actually say about tRump:

        “You look at how qualified these people are. I like Donald [Trump] fine but should he be president of the country? NO! You cannot say the stupidest thing anyone says in the world every week and be president of the United States, you just can’t do it. For example, the wall between Mexico and the United States is the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard in my entire life. Do you have any idea how good the Mexican people are at digging tunnels?”

        Do you boyz ever type anything that is true?

        • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

          Nothing fake about it.
          Even you can watch it on youtube.

          Ya can’t fix stupid!

          Little sissybitch is living proof.

            Then link to it on YouTube LilCowardly Lyin’.

            Or as you’re known on the Zoo sites, Horatio DogBlower. LOL.

        • formwiz says:

          liljeffy linked his quote, but I bet you won’t link yours. Especially since his quotes are about his work.

          And, if you’re using a stand-up comic to go after Trump, it must mean you have nothing substantial.

        • david7134 says:

          Jeff,
          You are getting very despite and this is plain in your comments. You have figured out that Trump is assured to be president to 2024. And the better than even chance that the Reps will hold both houses of congress.

          Winning
          MAGA

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            davey dukem,

            tRump is the least popular president in modern times. He will lose bigly. The GOP will lose the Senate too.

            The question is whether the Dems can do the right things after 2020.

          • david7134 says:

            Jeff,
            That is such a pathetic comment , I actually feel a sense of putty for you. But it does show you lie and can not be trusted, hence your comments on the climate hoax are questionable.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            MAGA = Make Arabia Great Again

            So now Saudi Arabia is running our foreign policy. As tRump says, “They pay cash!”.

  2. Joe says:

    “We must return to traditional urban development patterns which lead to compact, walkable cities”.

    Perhaps these geniuses could take a lesson from North Korea and build the same cities. We could all like in a 500′ hovel with photos of Bernie,Liz “spewing bullshit” Warren and Ms.Occluded -Cortex on the wall. Through the speakers would be re-broadcasts of all of Obammy’s speeches.

    davey dukem,

    The question is whether the Dems can do the right things after 2020.

    Not really. He’s at 54, thanks to what the Demos have been able to find. Your heartthrob Zippy is to blame for that.

    And the Democrat brand is so tarnished right now, Trump will probably retake the House as well as increase his hold on the Senate.

    The question is if there will be a Democrat party after ’20 because they certainly haven’t done anything good in the last 2 years.

    The question really is if there will be a Democrat party in the next generation.

  4. formwiz says:

    For fun, take a look at the packed house for Trump in Rio Rancho NM (just outside Albuquerque).

    That’s supposed to be hardcore Lefty territory, but he’s packed the House.

    Be afraid, Little Jeffery, be very, very afraid.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Edward Sibley, I am so not afraid.

      You, on the other hand, like most far-right wingers, including the Idiot-in-Chief, are desperate.

      It’s only going to get worse for you. Why do you think tRump is floating an attack on Iran? Wars are good for re-election.

      Is it worth a few hundred brave Americans to get tRump elected?

      • formwiz says:

        Well, you are a fool.

        And it’s the Demos that are desperate. Their “moderate” gets loonier by the day. So who do you think should be the nominee, or are you as desperate as the rest of the Lefties?

        Almost of a certainty.

        ICYMI any talk of war is in the media. Trump is playing his cards quietly, as he always does. The desperate ones are at the Gray Lady and Commie News Net, and thus you, because there is nothing to stop a second Trump term.

        Wars are good for re-election.

        No, that was Willie after people heard about Monica, not to mention Woody Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, Jack Kennedy, and your boy, Zippy. It’s Democrats that start wars.

        Is it worth a few hundred brave Americans to get tRump elected?

        And here you were the one who called him a surrender monkey because he wanted to get out of A-stan. Apparently, you’re the one who thinks it’s worth a few hundred brave Americans to get some sad sack Democrat elected.

        Trump always does it unexpectedly and covertly. Stop thinking like a democrat.

  5. formwiz says:

    The Dumbass uses a comedian to support tRump then complains when the comedian trashes tRump. Typical.

    The great flapping prolapse anus once again is confused.

    I didn’t think it was that great an idea, but I also challenged him to link the quote.

    Notice he hasn’t. Poor, pathetic troll.

  6. formwiz says:

    MAGA = Make Arabia Great Again

    So now Saudi Arabia is running our foreign policy. As tRump says, “They pay cash!”.

    They are? Where did we get that one?

    His words, “We are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom [of Saudi Arabia] as to who they believe was the cause of this attack and under what terms we would proceed!”.

    Hardly the words of someone itching for a fight. Now here’s an economics lesson, so have Mommy read it to you and then explain it, a shortage of Saudi oil is good for us because it drives up prices and we get more money for our oil.

    The point is to dissuade (Mommy will tell you what it means) who did this from doing it again because somebody on our side might get hurt.

    In any case, moron seems to think we’re going to war over what happened in the sandbox.

    No, little idiot, we get the guys who did this quietly, the way Trump’s operated all along.

    You think like a Democrat.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      tRump has never done anything quietly, except by accident.

      The commenter typed: tRump: “We are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom [of Saudi Arabia] as to who they believe was the cause of this attack and under what terms we would proceed!”.

      tRump is waiting for his orders from the Saudis. After all, “They pay cash!” If we attack Iran for them, the Saudis will pay for the excursion. How many millions is tRump Inc getting from the Saudis?

      This is America.

      • Doom and Gloom says:

        Do not forget your beloved president Obama was the one who bowed to the king and kissed his ring. He also sold tons of military aid to the kingdom and visited Saudi Arabia FOUR TIMES in his presidency. TRUMP ZERO!!

        HRC received 25 million from Saudia Arabia as sec of state to her foundation. Trump Received 5.8 million dollars from a prince who BOUGHT A FLOOR OF TRUMP TOWER in 2001. When Trump was a businessman.

        Why are the democrats so up in arms about defending Saudia Arabia and even admitting that Iran attacked them? Makes you wonder huh? YE who believes your side is the picture of political purity and honesty.

        How suddenly the left has become warmongers. ANYTHING Trump wants to do is suddenly evil. So if he wants out of Afghanistan and Syria the left is all about keeping our troops over there and continuing to kill people in the name of ORANGE MAN BAD….not good policy.

  7. formwiz says:

    LOL. What’s that? His IQ?

    Higher than yours, certainly.

    LOL. Goddamn, you’re ignorant.

    All right, abscessus ani, Tell us where I’m ignorant.

    Or is that all you’ve got?

    Of course it is because you know I’m right, but, like some impotent slave in front of his master, you are emasculated.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Hold it, Dumbass. You’re not implying that tRump’s approval is 54%, are you? LOL.

      Try 39% on a good day. tRump has yet to hit 50% during his entire presidency. He couldn’t even win the popular vote.

      Rumor has it that the increasingly desperate tRump is considering dumping Mike Pounce as VP. Whom do you think he has in mind?

      Ignore tRump’s crazy tweets and dishonest speeches, focus on his actions which reveal a deeply desperate man. Understand that tRump is shameless and mentally unstable. He’s a mass media showman and nothing more. He’s trying to block private citizens from testifying before Congress.

      If in 8 months his re-election chances are so slim that even Russia can’t save him, he’ll cut a deal and abandon you. Never forget, tRump’s allegiance is to tRump – not America, not his supporters and certainly not American ideals.

      • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

        The one person here who has been accused of serial pedophilia and wife beating on numerous occasions wants to lecture others on America’s ideals?

        Don’t think so scooter.

    I love when Fredo quotes the “polls” about Trumps popularity. Not only does he place his hopes in polls proven to be done by leftist lackeys but they are the same pollsters who always cook the books and lead the Dems to believe Hillary was winning right up till 10:45 pm on the last presidential election. That’s when the commie media and the lying pollsters ran face first into reality.

    I can’t wait to see their faces this time. They had everything nailed down last time to convince their mindless Fredo’s all was won, cheated Sanders, started false rumors and still lost the election. Now all the DemComs and Fredo’s do is talk about how Hillary won the popular vote. WRONG. The popular vote was a giant fraud that’s why they lost the election. They generated millions of fraudulent votes which is why they didn’t challenge the election this time. The D卐M☭CRATS were afraid their Great Voter Fraud would be revealed if they challenged the election so they decided to go Coup D’Etat instead being the traitorous anti American pigs they are.

    You can believe if they even come close to winning in 2020 the fraud will be rampant. I mean really Fredo, who’s gonna vote for a candidate that wants to ruin our energy industry costing 10 million jobs “On day One”, take our Constitutional right to bear arms away along with Red Flag laws to take our 2nd, 4th and 5th amendment rights away, remove the first amendment with “hate speech” and PC gibberish, have the government own our health care, put a 16 trillion dollar NGD ONLY on Americans, and open up our southern border to anyone who can get there while offering them FREE health care, FREE education, money, housing and even the right to VOTE IN OUR ELECTIONS, and want criminals released from prisons, 16 year old children and felons voting and allowing people to be hired and fired based on their voter registration? And that’s just the beginning of the nightmare called “Democratic Socialism” they intend to blanket America with.

    They are the hideous tyrants that created such paragons of good government such as the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Communist China, North Korea, Cuba, Cambodia and their latest victory taking the successful nation of Venezuela and turning it into a starving third world country. They want to make ALL AMERICA like Detroit Chicago, LA Baltimore or Philly. Them on top everybody else on the bottom. People like Beatoff O’Rook and Fredo always talk about “income inequality” without pointing out the greatest income inequality is in countries run by leftists.

    Trump 2020 Don’t allow the left to make all America like Detroit!
