Is okay if admit to having a crush on Kristin Tate?

 

Info babes are good in my book. Both left and right. Though not many left leaning info babes.

 

I have a crush on Kat Timpf. Even exchanged a few IG DM's a few years ago. Never worked out. Sigh

Still waiting for the supposed final draft of the Green New Deal to drop from AOC 🙄

 

Still waiting for any major figure from the right to acknowledge human-caused climate change is a problem.  Then maybe one of them can come up with a plan as dumb as Cortez's

Hadn't you heard? She's going to outlaw hamberders!!!  :o

 

And I'm sure her first act as president in a cycle or two will be to declare a national emergency on the subject to circumvent the will of Congress too!

I think we should continue to move away from matter-dense fuels and towards energy-dense ones, but that makes me a denier.

Most do. They just don't believe in completely wrecking the economy and abruptly putting millions of Americans who work in the energy industry out of jobs just to lower the rate by .015 degrees C in a decade.

Everyone is in favor of fusion. Unfortunately it's not here. 

 

Fission is a bit less energy dense, has a lot of advantages, but it really has some economic problems and really requires statism as there is no possibility of any private entity being interested in covering the total liability for the required number of centuries so the government is the insurer of last resort when other's private property becomes unusable.

Real statism has never been tried!

Statism has been used to override individual rights in the two major nuclear releases we've seen in Russia and Japan. Individual property owners didn't come off so well.

I guess I'll take your word for it.  I haven't seen it.

QED

 

Just like when the American economy was wrecked when millions of Americans in the railroad industry were put out of work when the automobile was developed.

 

There are already many times more jobs in the "green energy" sector than in coal.  Capitalism is replete with extinct sectors of the economy that were once significant contributors to GDP that got "disrupted" by better technologies.  The notion that the American economy cannot adapt to yet another disruptive shift in an economic sector is not only not supported by American history but I'd argue is inherently antithetical to Capitalism itself.

 

The thing that we can do differently this time is try and be smarter about how we aid the transition of those whose livelihoods depend on coal and fossil fuel into new fields whether in energy or something else.  I fully admit I don't know how to do that.  But the notion that the American economy cant handle it or that there aren't also ample jobs on the other side of that transition is just nonsense.

Lowering the rate by any amount is almost certainly better than ignoring the problem and allowing the rate to continue to grow exponentially.

 

Again, I would dearly love to see one of these conservative plans for dealing with climate change.  I think there are, potentially, ways to address the problem that could be palatable to conservatives.  But first, they have to start acknowledging that it is a problem and not some liberal hoax.  And that hasn't happened.

Not just "liberals", but rather scientists under many political systems espousing many political/social beliefs. Why, for example, the scientists at the Japanese Meteorological Agency--who produce their own independent series which agrees closely with the NASA/NOAA products--are interested in destroying American conservatism is just plain beyond my ken. Then there is the size and scope of the proposed conspiracy needed to control data collection and analysis in every country of the world to produce a "hoax" of this magnitude that beggars the imagination. We are talking literally hundreds of thousands if not millions of people necessarily in the know but going along.

It's that dastardly globalist-socialist cabal and their vast financial resources coming after all the poor little mom-and-pop oil and gas companies like Royal Dutch Shell and ExxonMobil and BP, don't you see?

Can't wait until Little Marco Rubio wins the Democratic nomination...

 

 

rep, you mean. and he's a pretty good examplar of the species these days. no Constitutional morals whatsoever. nada. none. zilch.

 

That said, I doubt he'd be much worse than the present leadership.

nope. little marco hates communism, remember!

 

And I don't see him supporting  outlawing hamberders, trucks, and homes in a way, according to Gorka, Stalin never dreamed of achieving.
