So, the answer is that you don't have any studies on AOC's outline and the regressives don't have a plan of their own to offer?

 


I didn't "study" AOC's outline since she has zero qualifications in this field or for that matter, any field. Yes, the Progressive regressives do buy in to AOC's plan since she embraces more taxes, no fossil fuels, trains for transportation, rebuilding all homes, and changing your diet to all vegan.  The right has no plans for relocating the sun either! Plans that don't make sense don't have too much hope of getting implemented.

Oh this is GREAT. It is a perfect set of examples of a logical fallacy called "False Equivalency".  Where the debater uses two examples AS IF they were equivalent when they are not.  In the first segment, the reporter makes the assumption that climate change requires banning of plastics production, it does not.  She then compares a motorcycle helmet (recyclable) to the use of plastic straws (non recyclable).  

 

It is great fun to watch as they try desperately to pretend there is nothing we can do but allow the earth to become a less and less inhabitable place for humans.  

 

Oh. Please watch this and take notes. It really is pretty transparent and the reporter is not particularly bright.

AOC is a leftist windbag.  Why would anyone support her "new Green Deal" which just transfers money to others and accomplishes nothing positive?  The right doesn't pretend they have a plan to FIX the climate because they don't know how to control the climate which the left is only privy to!


I would love to see the financial studies you are using in these comments. Because the Green New Deal is simply a set of ambitions and not a set of policies, it is impossible to put a price tag on it yet you seem to have some pretty strong opinions.  Assuming the GND took the path of a carbon tax and used the proceeds to pay for the other items, the costs to the public would be quite reasonable. But, I have not seen your numbers yet so perhaps the professionals are wrong.

"The right" doesn't have a plan for climate change because they continue to deny the obvious reason why our climate is changing.  They prefer unsubstantiated ludicrous opinion over scientific facts!


The right is smart enough to know that the climate has always changed while the left still thinks they have control of the climate and the "fix" is to mandate wealth redistribution, elimination of fossil fuels, travel by train, require every home be rebuilt, and change your diet to vegan.

 

It's Nothappening myexper!!!!!

Last week, there was a pro-ICE rally in front of the County Council Building here in Montgomery County. I think it was a Friday as well. There was a counter protest too. But kids at the local high school were allowed to go join the protest (or counter protest) as they chose.

 

Does it change your mind if the cause they championed was a conservative one? 

 

Our school system allowed it because it is part of our civic duty to be involved. What better way to teach that than to let kids DO that?


What????  Students were allowed to skip school to attend a support ICE protest?  OMG.  I can't BELIEVE those radical right-wing extremists would encourage that behavior.  Saturday was just the next day, ya know!

Global Climate Strike

 

https://www.nbcnews.com/nightly-news/video/migrants-fled-guatemala-for-u-s-after-drought-and-food-sh...

 

Migrants fled Guatemala for U.S. after drought and food shortages, government report finds

 

 

Republican solution - Deny Climate change is happening to protect big money fossil fuel donors,  cut aid to Guatemala, build a wall, separate families, round up migrants and put them in concentration camps, put children in gulags. 

 

Young people, children, mass protest to use science and politics to mitigate, to stop,  climate  change from getting far worse then it will become if no action is taken.

 

Reality is we can't stop climate change, all we can do is to take urgent action to stop it from getting worse.
