For New Year’s, Climahypocrite Doesn’t Want To Be A Climahypocrite Anymore

And Warmist Conal Hanna has ideas

I’m a climate change hypocrite — but I’m making a New Year’s resolution to do things differently

….. (snip through a bunch of paragraphs)

If we are to neutralise the threat of climate change, we must first neutralise the power of self-interest. But doing so requires a hard look at ourselves.

Earlier last year I found myself becoming riled up by the same circular discussion we’ve been having for decades now: that Australia alone can’t make a difference to global emissions, and we need to await some magical consensus that includes big emitters like China and the US.

“But we should be setting an example!” I cried.

Then I applied the same logic to my own life. And my hypocrisy was laid bare.

Shocking, eh? Imagine a Warmist being a hypocrite. But, hey, what’s Conal going to do?

That’s why our family — who have done a bit, but are by no means model citizens — is planning to make one new life-long, carbon-reducing resolution every month in 2020.

We’re going to re-examine all aspects of our lives: from diet and purchasing habits, to leisure activities and super investments. There will be no gimmicky “my year without …” abstinence. Each commitment will be something we’re willing to do forever from that point on.

So, obviously, giving up fossil fuels, downsize to a tiny home, live only on wind and solar, grow own food, etc?

First up is a war on ignorance: I’m going to commit at least one hour a week to reading about the impact I’m having on the planet. It’s not the most dramatic first step, but it will ensure each subsequent resolution is well informed.

We’re also aiming to eliminate (as much as possible) our standby power use. Simple things: switching the TV off at the wall, turning the wi-fi off overnight, etc. Using electricity more mindfully.

We are not seeking immediate perfection, simply to each month become better than we were before. Not only does this stepped approach make it more likely our new habits will stick but, if more people were to follow suit, it would give the economy time to adjust to the effects of large-scale change.

So, pretty much nothing of consequence. Surprise?

    What is TEACH doing regarding global warming? He’s encouraging others to emit even more CO2!

    Deniers will argue since they don’t believe that CO2-dependent climate change exists that they have no obligation to help. But what if the right-wingers are wrong (which is more likely every day)? How will you make amends after you’re gone?

    Denier/Cons also argue that the budget deficits are someone else’s problem as they continue to receive entitlements they claim are bankrupting America. That’s somewhat, a little bit (h/t Jerry Clower) hypocritical isn’t it?

      Four, count ’em, rhetorical questions.

      Since it’s all phony, he can do what he wants.

      What if we’re right? And you know we are. And we do have an obligation to help. We have an obligation to make people know this is a scam to allow the imposition of Communism on the world.

      How will you make amends after you’re gone?

      You keep saying there’s no God, that it’s all myths and fairy stories (a lot of nerve coming from you), so, if there’s nothing left of us, we can’t make amends anyway.

      Denier/Cons also argue that the budget deficits are someone else’s problem as they continue to receive entitlements they claim are bankrupting America.

      Well, if you’re so concerned about deficits, why didn’t you do something when Zippy wanted socialized medicine, when the was practicing national socialism with GM?

      No, you just cheered it on and the Feds lost billions.

      That’s somewhat, a little bit (h/t Jerry Clower) hypocritical isn’t it?

      Who?

    Loathe as I am to agree with Mr Dowd, I don’t see this action by the Hanna family as inconsequential. Yes, it might be less of an impact than they could make, but it’s something. And perhaps, as they start studying what they could do, they’ll find more that they can do than was in the article.

    But. more importantly, rather than just supporting politicians who are going to impose the warmunists’ will on other people, they are at least going to attempt to impose some conservation measures on themselves.

    Let’s contrast that with warmunist Al Roker, NBC’s star weatherman. Even though NBC has dozens, perhaps even hundreds of celebrity hosts in the Los Angeles area, the network flew Hoda Kotb and Mr Roker from New York to Pasadena, to host the Tournament of Roses Parade, burning up who knows how much fossil fuel, when the network’s Los Angeles people are within Tesla range of the site. Did Mr Roker say to his bosses, “Hey, maybe we should let the left coast people handle this, to save the planet?” We don’t know, but I doubt it.

    Perhaps I’ll check the Today show tomorrow, and see if the duo are back in the Big Apple.

    One does wonder: what small steps has Mr Dowd taken to reduce his carbon footprint?

  3. It’s hard to take climate activists seriously when they don’t act as if even they believe what they say. Just for example, using the internet is a totally non carbon neutral activity. Yet our friend Jeff, is on here every day arguing with people who don’t care what he has to say. Electricity used. Carbon created. Zero human benefit other than Jeff’s entertainment. maybe he should get a hobby that demonstrates his belief in Climate change, like filling sandbags in ocean cities or Going without food 4 days out of 5.
