On Thursday, the socialists of the world united with President Joe Biden, who held a climate summit with world leaders. At the summit, Biden pledged to cut America’s greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030, according to Politico, with or without approval from Congress. That last part is important because Biden just said that he will violate our Constitution for a federal program.
I guess Biden figures if Obama got away with DACA, so why not use unconstitutional executive orders to uproot our infrastructure and economy to fix a problem generated not by science but by computer models? Did you know that? Did you know that there is no real-world scientific evidence that proves climate change, global warming, or whatever they want to call it this month is actually happening? Every piece of so-called scientific evidence they throw out at us is based on computer models. In another life, I am a senior programmer and I can tell you right now that if people paid me enough money, I could write a program that would give out results showing anything that the people who are paying me want me to show.
All you really need to know is that your life will not be made better by the changes the watermelons in the Biden administration are planning for us.
Though Biden told us that our economy would create millions of jobs under a Green New Deal type of society (forced onto the American people because they know better) the Biden administration, AOC, Bernie Sanders, et al. have never told us how such a wide-ranging program would affect the normal, everyday life of us, the great unwashed Americans. So that leaves it up to others to start listing the impending misery on our lives.
The New York Times wrote that if the Biden administration is able to achieve its climate goal, it “would mean a very different America,” for us. Maybe not so much for the rich and powerful, but the rest of us will be living in hell.
The Times pointed to studies that show what the broad societal and infrastructure changes would look like in about nine years:
- Half of the country’s electricity would come from renewable sources such as wind, solar, or hydropower, up from one-fifth today (meaning “the number of wind turbines and solar panels dotting the nation’s landscape could quadruple”).
- Two-thirds of new cars and SUVs sold would be battery-powered, up from roughly 2% today.
- Oil and gas producers would slash emissions of methane, a potent heat-trapping gas, by 60%.
- Virtually all of the 200 remaining coal plants in the U.S. would shut down unless they can also capture their emissions and bury them underground.
Solar power technology just isn’t there yet and may never be. We learned from the freeze in Texas that wind power doesn’t work so well when the windmill turbines freeze up. That was so catastrophic for the watermelons that they lied about what caused the power outages using fuzzy math again.
What if I don’t want a battery-powered car? This is the problem with totalitarian authoritarianism. Authoritarian governments don’t allow choices for the people, because they think that they know what’s best for you more than you do. Socialism is for the people and not the socialist.
The Times opined that “policymakers would have to take care in crafting measures that do not cause serious economic harm, such as widespread job losses or spikes in energy prices, that could lead to blowback.” Who are they kidding? Democrats have already said people will be forced to comply. They think that with Dominion they no longer have to worry about angering their constituents.
The Daily Mail points to studies to show how such broad reforms will more than likely impact the average American. The Mail compiled a number of recent studies to show how dire the radical changes will look.
One such study by Michigan University’s Center for Sustainable Systems reveals that Americans will have their red meat consumption reduced by 90 percent to just four pounds per year. That is the equivalent of limiting your intake to one hamburger per month. The eating of all other meats would need to be cut by 50 percent as well.
The Mail confirmed the Times’ estimate that 65 percent of new cars and SUVs would have to be electric. And we can just imagine what will happen to those who keep their real cars. On top of that, about 10 percent of new trucks would also have to be electric, and “The average cost of a new electric vehicle is about $55,000.”
About 82 million Americans or one-quarter of our current population will need to stop heating their homes in winter using natural gas and will be forced to switch over to electricity. Why is it that Democrats always force the people to do things they don’t want to do that will cost them money to have to comply? And we’re not talking chump change either at an average of $5,000 for an electric heat pump. That’s not leadership, that’s tyranny.
