Republicans . Happy home of climate change deniere, Anti Vaxers, and the flat earth society.  If they did not fall down so much, they would not believe in gravity. I did not realize America was last "Great" in the middle ages.

America could lead the world in reducing CO 2 emissions and create millions of jobs in developing and manufacturing goods needed to produce alternative energies. We are missing the bus.


We currently get 20% of our electricity from 99 Nuclear Reactors and we have already built and tested one that cannot "melt down", and which recycles 80% of its nuclear fuel on site. A WWII level effort WOULD leave us with 100% of our electricity coming from Nuclear and renewable by 2040. We could cut emissions from transportation to near zero with electric cars or NG-electric. Industry would have a source of energy to replace their fossil fuel burners, leaving only cow burps to contend with, and face it, farms grow green stuff that sucks up way more CO2 than their livestock produces.

 

But to undertake such a mission to save Civilization, we must remove those who would destroy civilization in the hope the profits they reap will protect them and their children from the devastation their greed brings to everyone else.

Those people are represented by REPUBLICANS.

Germany will join a growing push for an EU-wide target of cutting greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050, increasing the odds that EU leaders could formally agree to the goal this week, according to EU officials.

The European Commission proposed last year that the bloc adopt a mid-century net zero emissions goal, meaning the EU would absorb as much greenhouse gases as it emits. Member country leaders are set to discuss the bloc's long-term climate strategy at a European Council summit Thursday. The EU’s current goal is to cut emissions by at least 40 percent by 2030, and efforts to increase that target have failed.

 

https://www.politico.eu/article/germany-joins-push-for-eu-wide-net-zero-emissions-goal/


Bonespurs has proven the United States cannot be trusted to live up to anything it agrees to and thinks Tariffs are a legitimate tool to bend others to our will.

 

As a result the member States of the EU are scrambling to find alternative sources for everything they currently import from America and new markets for all they export to America.

 

That being the case, I predict the EU will approve much stronger emission standards AND impose a carbon tax on all goods imported from the USA, and establish a new "reserve currency" to replace the dollar.

 

The GOPer Base will not understand what that will mean until they notice their kids cannot find a job that does not involve stoop labor.

They deny science and try to get their followers to do the same, so big business can exploit us all.

Yes we could be a leader, but the science denialist in the White House is keeping us from being a leader, and now just a follower, sometimes.
