A Faction Of “Conservatives” Is Making Its Own Climate (scam) Movement Or Something

How cute. Is this like some “conservatives”, such as George Shultz, pushing for a market driven carbon tax which is run by the government? It makes NBC News happy, though not happy enough to make their own operations carbon neutral

A faction of conservatives pushes to build its own climate movement

climate change joke

Before he became a climate activist during his freshman year of college, Benji Backer had spoken at the Conservative Political Action Conference, written for right-leaning sites such as TownHall and RedState, and made a name for himself as a conservative commentator on television.

But like many other young people, he worried about climate change and didn’t see a place for himself in either the conservative movement, which mostly ignores or denies climate change, or the environmental movement, in which major institutes like the Sierra Club tend to align with Democrats.

This again? Republicans mostly do not deny that the climate has changed from a cold one during the Little Ice Age to the warm one now. Our argument is on causation. We do not think it is mostly/solely caused by Mankind. And those who do think Mankind is 50%+ responsible, and much through land use and the UHI, do not see it as a danger

So in 2017, Backer founded the American Conservation Coalition, which next month is hosting what it bills as the first conservative climate rally.

“We want to plant a flagpole in the sand to say, this is an issue conservatives can and should lead on,” he said. “There is absolutely zero path to a zero emissions, climate change-free future without bipartisanship — and anybody who doesn’t accept that isn’t taking this seriously.”

The group has grown to more than 220 branches, many of which are on college campuses, with thousands of grassroots members and relationships on Capitol Hill.

Beyond their cute language, there is an overriding and entrenched belief in Government being the driver and controller of all the solutions. That’s totally conservative, right?

(Influence Watch) The American Conservation Coalition (ACC) is a nominally right-leaning environmental advocacy organization with financial and advisory board ties to left-wing environmentalist groups. The Wisconsin-based organization was founded and is headed by Benjamin “Benji” Backer, a student at the University of Washington. [1]

ACC says its goal is “giving conservatives a voice on the environment” and aims to present environmentalist issues as a conservative policy concern.[2] Despite presenting itself as a center-right advocacy group, ACC proposed a policy of taxing carbon dioxide emissions in September 2017; it has since removed that issue from its platform. [3] [4]

A number of ACC’s founding coalition members, including the R Street Institute, have received grants from the environmentalist Energy Foundation and liberal billionaire George Soros’ Foundation to Promote Open Society[37] [38] The OEC Action Fund (related to the left-wing League of Conservation Voters) has received grants from the left-wing Joyce FoundationEnergy Foundation, and Rockefeller Family Fund.

Endorsements include super squishy Bob Inglis and Christine Todd Whitman. Their advisory board includes Former U.S. Sen. Slade Gorton (R-WA), a liberal Republican who called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump in November 2019. And

  • Former Rep. Bob Dold (R-IL), a gun control advocate
  • Collin O’Mara, president of the left-wing environmentalist group National Wildlife Federation
  • David Yarnold, president and CEO of the center-left National Audubon Society
  • Jason Grumet, founder and president of the center-left Bipartisan Policy Center
  • Paul Bodnar, managing director of the left-wing environmentalist think tank Rocky Mountain Institute
  • Andreas Merkl, former president of the left-wing group Ocean Conservancy
  • John Seydel, sustainability director for the City of Atlanta, Georgia, and a former campaign staffer for two Colorado Democrats, Gov. John Hickenlooper and Sen. Mark Udall.

Totally conservative, right? They’re just trying gaslight us. If they are really conservatives they’d practice what they preach, not trying and force everyone to comply.

    The Denier Caucus is too, too cute, making their excuses!

    William Teach now recognizes that the Earth is warming but “believes” it’s caused by ABC (Anything But Carbon).

      Jeff,
      Why lie? Teach has always maintained that the climate is changing, after all we were in an ice age and it is now temperate in most of the world. So, you see, the climate changed, do you follow, do you understand.

      Now the issue is the reason. You worship this god called carbon dioxide and attribute all sorts of powers to it. All we have ever asked is proof. All you provide is correlation and mumbo jumbo in the form of computer programs that are wrong. Then your solution is taxes and global communist government which you then state will not have a meaningful influence on anything and only applies to the US and Europe without changes to China and India who are the major polluters.

      All this is coupled in lies, phoned peer review, politics and just about every action which makes thinking people suspect a hidden agenda.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Oh Doogie Hoser,

        It wasn’t so very long ago that William Teach was questioning the temperature record just as Tony Wuwt was. You don’t remember that?

        The rest of your screed is more of your typical BS. CO2 is a gas, not a god (since there are no gods). All we’ve asked is what proof would you find sufficient? All we ever get is “fake data”, “climategate”, “cult”, “communists” and “scam”. What evidence would you recognize as proof? If you can’t answer that, then you are just a denier. Do you follow; do you understand?

        You’re just wrong, but thanks for the meaningful dialogue.

          Again Rimjob, dipshit that he is, concocts another meaningless word salad of his past phrases offered as proof of man-made global warming then asks why you don’t buy into it.

          Then he deems others ignorant.

      Rimjob, dipshit that he is, believes in the man-made global warming scam.

      But then again he’s a dipshit.
