Joe Lieberman Really Wants Climate Doom Bipartisan Action

Has former Senator Joe Lieberman looked at what the climate cultists want to do? Has he seen how far towards authoritarian government his traveled?

The urgent need for climate change bipartisanship

The climate change legislation signed by President Joe Biden this month was a historic political accomplishment and a big step forward in America’s capacity to help stop the warming of the Earth. Climate change threatens our security, our prosperity and even our freedom as much as terrorism did after 9/11. But like climate change bills I worked on in the Senate for years, it did not win bipartisan support. This needs to change. Until it does, the responsible and sensible course is to try to pass legislation with the votes of one party, which is what congressional Democrats just did.

Based on my experience as a U.S. Senator, I believe that the new law, the Inflation Reduction Act, was adopted along party lines not because Democrats refused to reach out to Republicans but because Republicans were not willing to get involved. Climate change is not a partisan problem so legislation to solve the problem should not be partisan. On every climate bill I introduced in the 1990s right up through early 2013 when I retired from the Senate, I sought and found an important Republican cosponsor, from Sens. John Chafee (R-R.I.) to John McCain (R-Ariz.) to John Warner (R-Va.) to Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). But each time one of our proposals came to a vote, almost all Senate Democrats voted for it and almost all Senate Republicans voted against it. And so, after almost 15 years of trying, we never got anything done. Not much has changed in the years since 2013. Democratic senators like Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) continued to work very hard to build bipartisan support for climate change action, and never get any.

The partisan split about such an urgent national and global crisis must stop. The fears of global warming are no longer based on scientific modeling but can be seen and felt by all of us in extreme weather, greater heat, more wildfires, stronger and more frequent storms, visibly melting polar ice and mountain snow, animal life moving to stay alive, crops threatened in their traditional ground, as well as sea levels rising.

Let me ask: why must the split stop? Why should Republicans simply give in to Big, Controlling Government? Why can’t the Democrats give in a bit? Why must it always be Republicans who give up their political beliefs? If this is such a huge, massive, global crisis, why is it that most Warmists have made virtually no changes in their own lives? Why is Biden still running around using lots and lots of fossil fuels? Have all the Democrats who voted for the (not an) inflation reduction bill dumped their fossil fueled vehicles and purchased EVs? How about you, Mr. Lieberman?

Top Dems won’t say how much inflation bill will decrease global temperatures

Several top Democratic lawmakers and the White House were silent when asked about the exact impact the Inflation Reduction Act would have on climate change. (snip)

Still, the White House, Pelosi, Schumer, Manchin and other lead proponents of the bill in the House and Senate didn’t respond to inquiries from Fox News Digital highlighting the projected dismal effect of the bill on climate change.

House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, D-N.J., and Sens. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, Chris Murphy, D-Conn., and Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., were also contacted for comment. The lawmakers were all major proponents of the legislation’s climate provisions.

Of course they won’t answer, because it will have virtually no impact. Should have asked them if they’ve purchased EVs and stopped taking fossil fueled flights.

    Teach asks: Why must it always be Republicans who give up their political beliefs?

    Republicans have beliefs?

    Because global warming is real. Health care is a mess. Women deserve to make their own decisions. The US government is not Christian. Democracy is worth saving. America is a plutocracy.

      “Global warming is real”. But the alleged effects, which is what really matters, aren’t real

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Those thousand year floods every four years argue against you.

        Since the scientists were right about warming (and you denied it for years), perhaps you should listen to them about effects.

        • Jl says:

          Absolutely no proof floods are any worse than they used to be. But if you have evidence of that, by all means show it.
          “Scientists right about warming..and you denied it..”. Wow-what a job they did! It had already been warming since the end of the little ice age around 1850 with no CO2 increase. And guess what? They only had 3 choices to make-warmer, cooler, or stay the same. Of course the issue you ignore is not the warming, but the cause and effects of the warming. And no, I never denied warming, just how much and the cause, as said several times
          “Listen to them about effects”. What effects, and the proof the alleged effects are from CO2?

    “urgent” “global crisis”

    Fuck right off!

    Used to think Leiberman was one Democrat that made some sense.
    Not any more.

    Bwaha! Lolgf

  3. Hairy says:

    Maybe Teach you didn’t notice but through incremental small changes the carbon footprint of Americans dropped from 19 tons per person to 15 tons per person
    All while “skyrocketing electric costs” averaged less than 3%

    My Hate for Joe Lieberman is infinite and eternal.

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      So is Lieberman’s hate for himself. He’s a self hating communist Jew. His end cannot come too soon.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        As a gov’t employee, perhaps you can use your gov’t connections to track him down and murder this Jew yourself.

    Is it the invisible kind?

  6. […] other day is was Joe Lieberman who took this tactic, while also forgetting to mention what measures he’s taking in his own […]
