The Democrats focus on destructive climate action policies

Climate change may be front of mind among the political class but in the US Pew Survey it came 16th out of 18 issues in 2019, just as it had in the previous 7 years. Even among 18-29 year old’s it was only 7th.

Even so, as with the political elites everywhere, it is front and centre for the US Democrats.  All Democrat Presidential candidates are trumpeting their climate action credentials but only Bernie Sanders gets full marks from activists’ favouring complete economic destruction. Klobuchar and Bloomberg, in a policy stance that might even be palatable to the Australian Coalition’s wets,  merely seek to end new fossil fuel leases.  But heaven preserve the world if the nihilist Communist Sanders (0r Warren) were to become President.  Whatever are such large numbers of Americans thinking in opting for these two destroyers of free enterprise and property? Clearly Democracy is a fragile thread on which the basis of economic prosperity is supported.

 

Meanwhile, President Trump has rolled back as many regulations impacting upon fossil fuels as he has been able.   Columbia University’s Sabin Center for Climate Change Law  (in an analysis deeply critical of the President) counts 131 actions toward federal climate deregulation since Trump took office.

Republicans in Congress are however besotted with carbon reducing subsidies to reduce emissions and other sops to the activist, demonstrating once more that without Trump, the Republican swamp would be cutting deals with those who would aim to harm the US economy.

    More interested in their ability to enforce their will, than governing for the people.

    I love the chart. Another way to look at it is the varying degrees to which the candidate is willing to shut down economic activity and impoverish the population. Big green ticks for the most destruction.

    SBS just now reported Albo is all in on the same stupid climate policies.
    I changed channel to Alice in Wonderland Through the Looking Glass.
    It was a more scientific show than Albo’s mad fantasy.

    The good thing for Trump is that these policies, or policies of the same tendencies, have been tried before under Obama. People have seen the result, as well as the benefit of getting rid of them.

    Normally the left tries to sell the policies as all virtue and negatory cost and people’s suspicions are eased by the the sheer brazenness of the lies. But now they know.

    The one policy they all support – “End new fossil fuel leasing” – is enough on its own to cripple America’s energy-producing capacity in the long run.

    Just … why?
    Nobody cares but they’re obsessed with it.

    With the establishment Dems and their MSM allies freaking out over a long standing fully fledged communist heading for the top spot in their party, perhaps the Clinton’s friends and acquittance suicidal tendencies list will grow by one more. The VP spot is looking good for meh Godzillary and Bill be happy the hag will be fucked-off at least for a while.

    Bernie might need to employ a food & beverage taster ! Trump should ensure that Bernie’s heart stays apumpin’ otherwise it won’t be any fun at the presidential debates.

    People actually vote for these sort of clowns?

    besotted with carbon reducing subsidies to reduce emissions and other sops to the activist,

    The entire raison d’etre of the US congressman is to secure re-election by diverting as many tax dollars as possible to his district or state (and pocket).

    Just saw Albo (spit) on TV proclaiming much the same thing.

    And the worst thing is … he has a bloody good chance of being elected next time!!

    “Just … why?
    Nobody cares but they’re obsessed with it.”

    Answered your own question…

    1) Most people pay lip service, but don’t really care that much
    2) solutions either impractical or extremely expensive
    3) it’s “the greatest moral chalange of our time”

    In short, they can spend other people money on something no-one except a small minority care much about, meaning they can show they “care abut the children” etc – they can “talk the talk” and even start walking the walk, and by the time the costs become obvious and people scream, they’ll have already gotten their accolades and retired. For a politician, what’s not to like?
