When it comes to man-made climate change, there are two kinds of people: those who take it seriously enough, and those who don’t.
Joe Biden says he has a climate plan, but everything I hear about it (from both Joe and his opponents) leads me to believe he’s in the second group: he doesn’t take it seriously enough. Not even close. Anyone who claims we can deal with the problem but avoid a “radical transformation of the economy” is a fool, for two reasons.
First, without a radical transformation of the economy we can’t deal with the problem.
Second, no matter what we do — fight global warming or not — there’s going to be a radical transformation of the economy. If we don’t fight climate change and fight hard, the transformation is going to get ugly.
Sorry, Joe, but when you’re sick, refusing to take your medicine doesn’t work. We don’t need a “middle of the road” plan, and “compromise” is what will kill us.
The U.K. Guardian seems to agree.
Mike Pompeo, U.S. Secretary of State under Trump, has proclaimed his optimism about man-made climate change. The suggested consequences include:
It’s worth reading the U.K. Guardian. It’s worth supporting them too, if you can.
From the New York Times:
WASHINGTON — When John Barrasso, a Republican from oil and uranium-rich Wyoming who has spent years blocking climate change legislation, introduced a bill this year to promote nuclear energy, he added a twist: a desire to tackle global warming.
John Barrasso is a liar.
THIS IS THE NEXT STAGE OF CLIMATE DENIAL. Lying republican politicians telling lies about how they want to combat climate change. It’s all a lie, they’re just trying to avoid the fact that they are to blame for how bad things are already.
Don’t let the liars who made the problem so terrible, have a seat at the table.
The deniers lost.
Their credibility is so low that further efforts to deny the truth only make it more obvious. The only people who will buy their utter crap, are those who cannot be reasoned with.
For twelve years I’ve been blogging, mainly to prove how utterly wrong, how empty-headed, how gullible are the “arguments” from climate deniers. I followed others, yet more joined later, and together we did it. They got pwned.
Problem is: in the decades it took to accomplish this, our society, our governments, our world, has not faced the real problem. The problem they were trying so hard to deny all along. Yes, truth will out, but it can take its time getting its shoes on.
Deniers of the crisis of man-made climate change: you have done wrong. You have done evil. Foul deeds will rise, though all the earth o’erwhelm them, to men’s eyes.
Look for the helpers. There will always be helpers.
