D.C. Got A Lungful Of ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

I was trying to ignore the insane cult rambling over the Canadian wildfires, but, this is just too stupid to ignore

D.C. gets lungful of climate change

In a stunning manifestation of the dangers of a warming world, large swaths of the eastern U.S. are suffering from extreme air pollution driven by hundreds of wildfires raging across Quebec.

The smoke has spurred renewed calls for more aggressive efforts to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions warming the planet. And unlike with most climate-linked disasters, people in Washington are feeling this one firsthand.

Paul Miller, who leads a Boston-based group of air pollution regulators, said air pollution could drive real action, if history is any guide.

“People tend to act on things they can see,” he told Sean Reilly, referencing passage of the 1970 Clean Air Act. The bedrock environmental law received a groundswell of bipartisan support after smog and other pollution reached extreme levels in the 1960s.

Good grief. Wildfires are mostly natural. Lightning strikes. Of course, then there are idiots who intentionally or unintentionally start fires. This has zero to do with ‘climate change’

On the Hill: Lawmakers certainly took notice as a thick layer of smoke penetrated Washington and the Capitol.

Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso, the top Republican on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, called the plague of smoke “a sobering reminder that we must manage our forests to make them more resilient to catastrophic fires.” But he stopped short of making the connection between fires and fossil fuels.

Because there isn’t any. Fires happen. And leftist enviro-weenies stop government and groups from clearing dead brush.

Meanwhile, Republicans are still opposing multiple federal and state-led efforts to tackle climate change. This prompted Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, to deride Republican “climate denier[s]” in Congress.

“You show up to work at the Capitol today, see the skies filled with smoke … and you still don’t get that we need bold and immediate action to save our planet? Ridiculous,” she tweeted.

And how’s she, and all the others, getting around D.C. and between their districts? This is all a political movement to take your money and control your life.

    EauxMuGaawd,,, let’s all run screaming.
    No,it’s NOT climate change. It’s the insufferable idiocy of lefty policies that make intelligent management of the woods ILLEGAL!

    Gasoline prices are set to ride again as the Saudis have announced production cuts July 1. Some people are so in love with fossil fuels they just can’t quit them and will continue to pay whatever the Arabs demand. July 1 will also mark the end of the 2nd quarter of car sales. Anyone think that Tesla will again be the #1 model in sales?

      Gas would be dirt cheap if Biden was not at war with it. Can you tell us why the Dem/ communist are intentionally trying to harm us.
