Free Greta Thunberg From Her Cruel Political Exploitation By Leftists

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Let her go. Not because it would be to our side’s political advantage, because it isn’t.  She hurts the climate change scam here in the US of A. The Europeans are the Fredos/Chris Cuomos of Western civilization, weak and stupid, and they eagerly lap up this kind of nonsense. But the vast majority of Americans have too much common sense to allow their country’s energy policy to be dictated by a teenaged girl’s obsessions. Let her go, because this is terribly destructive to a child who is only trying to please those who she mistakenly believes have her best interests in mind. Free Greta, you monsters.

Democrats Debate Issues No One Cares About And Policies No One Wants

Based on the results of recent polls, racist pandering is getting Beto and Mayor Pete exactly nowhere. But lack of measurable impact didn’t drive the candidates away from talking about issues no one cares about and pushing policies no one wants and that was ultimately the overarching theme of last night’s Democrat debate.

Climate Change and the Democrats

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

The Democrats’ obsession with Climate Change is more than odd. It is delusional. Not Climate Change but health care “matters to voters in a real, tangible way, and not in an abstract sense like climate change.” Health care consumes 18 percent of the American budget, trending upward toward 20 percent by mid-decade. Americans now spend $3.5 trillion or so on health care with the federal, state, and local government footing 45 percent of the bill. How will we pay for it in 2025? The subject was not even discussed last Wednesday by the leading Democratic contenders. Health care, not Climate Change, is an issue in 2020.

How Conservatives Can Protect the Environment and Win Voters, Too

Chris Buskirk, American Greatness

Conservatives should embrace this issue. The point is to stop letting the climate-change debate define everything about environmental policy and instead just pursue policies that are good for the environment. Here are a few ideas. Reducing urban heat islands through reforestation; Eliminating plastic in the ocean, and, Moving away from bisphenol A (BPA). These ideas are a start. Conservatives have to stop being afraid of the issue and realize that they don’t have to accept the Green’s climate creed in order to believe that the preservation and appreciation of the natural world is an inherently conservative issue—and a political winner, too.

“Climate Change” Is A Hoax

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Back in the 70s, I remember we were promised an ice age if we didn’t give liberals our money and freedom. Then in the 80s, we were promised death by ozone hole if we didn’t give liberals our money and freedom, and then doom by acid rain if we didn’t give liberals our money and freedom. By the time they started promising that we were all gonna die from global warming if we didn’t give liberals our money and freedom, I was still wanting my ice age. It would be nice to have a white Christmas in LA. You evidently hate “science” if you expect the “science” people to be correct at least one time in a half-century.

Democrats Once Again Embrace Population Control to Save the Planet

Stephen Moore, CNS News

Of all the preposterous proposals put forward by the Democratic presidential candidates during the CNN climate change town hall meeting last week, the dumbest (and most dangerous) idea was a rehash of the widely discredited authoritarian idea from the 1960s and '70s: population control. This is a fundamentally anti-Judeo-Christian ideology that disrespects human life and — as history proves all too well — can lead to dastardly consequences for basic human rights and economic progress. In regard to environmental problems and the constantly changing climate of our planet, human ingenuity is the solution, not the cause.

What AOC & co. get horribly wrong about Dorian and climate change

Bjorn Lomborg, New York Post

More prosperous communities are better able to cope with disasters. This is especially clear when we consider the poor shantytowns in developing countries hit by hurricanes. They don’t need people in rich countries piously trying to cut carbon emissions, which will at best slightly ease their increased suffering in 2100. They need to grow their economies, feed their kids, stop easily curable diseases and expand access to education so they can move into the 21st century and boost resilience. Activists and pundits divert our attention from smart policies to ineffective ones when they insist on linking today’s hurricanes wrongly to global warming.

Suicidal Fossil Fuels Exec Hosts Biden Fundraiser

You can take your pick from our reasons why a fossil fuels executive would host a fundraiser for Joe Biden, or add your own, but one thing is for sure, Andrew Goldman IS a fossil fuels executive and he has his reasons for backing Biden.

The Duke and Duchess of Climate are disappointed in you

Editors, Washington Examiner

It’s hardly the first time European royalty have displayed laughably elitist and clueless condescension (Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, living on inherited wealth, don’t have jobs in the same way most of us do.). It’s not even the worst current scandal involving a British royal and a private jet. But the spectacle of a prince and a princess jetting around the globe in private jets (including a visit to Sir Elton John’s estate in Nice, France) while scolding the rest of us about carbon emissions is a telling one about the West’s elites and the climate change fight, and more beyond.

The Real Threat To Civilization Is Our Liberal Elites

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The looming existential challenge we face is not the failure to appease some angry climate goddess but, rather, the frivolous priorities of these bored beneficiaries of the bounty of Western civilization. They got handed a world of peace and prosperity unparalleled in human history and instead of appreciating and protecting it they want to toss it all away. Why? Precisely because they got handed it. The dummies who make up our elite don’t value the society they inherited because think this is the natural state of man - that all this just sort of happened and that it will go on just sort of happening.

Summer Heat Wave? It's Global Warming... Or Is It?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Everyone knows that politicians are basically liars or envelope-pushers, but when it comes to science they are idiots as well, at least the vast majority of them. That we have to listen to them opine about climate is like having our brains drilled. This is not to say that any of this proves the truth of global warming one way or another. The Democrats are copycats and have pretty much the same (enforced) views on everything with only the slightest nuances. But didn't we already know that? It's all a game show, basically.  Maybe Ryszard Legutko — the Polish author of The Demon in Democracy — is right. Communism and liberal democracy have some eerie similarities.

Australia’s Voters Reject Leftist Ideas

John Fund, National Review

Hell hath no fury greater than left-wingers who lose an election in a surprise upset. Think Brexit in 2016. Think Trump’s victory the same year. Now add Australia. Conservative prime minister Scott Morrison shocked pollsters and pundits alike with his victory on Saturday, and the reaction has been brutal from supporters of the opposition Labor party. They can’t seem to decide whether Australia’s electorate is stupid, evil, or both. For every seat that shifted left over climate change, there were several more where working-class voters broke with the Labor party they had long backed.

Blowhard Democrats Are Green Phonies

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The Democratic Party at the moment seems to be in a knockdown, drag-out fight for who can be the greenest of the green and push us forward to a brave new world propelled exclusively by solar and wind energy. Only the strongest (i. e. most slavishly devoted to renewable energy at all costs) will survive. Bernie and AOC are currently beating Joe Biden over the head about this. Poor Joe is frantically shoring up his "environmental" credentials. But those who've tried renewables (like Germany) discovered it doesn't work. I doubt this would mean much to true believers like Bernie and AOC, but the rest of us might pay attention.

It's Time for a Green Real Deal

Rep. Matt Gaetz, Real Clear Politics

America needs a Green Real Deal — a strategy linked to legislative proposals that can gain broad, bipartisan support. Climate change is too big for one political party to solve alone. We must address it as a nation, rather than lecture from the ivory towers of our own piety. Americans always rise to the challenge when we empower individuals and deconstruct the limitations on our potential. Climate change is real. A response doesn’t demand subjugating our lives to expansive government control. It requires a Green Real Deal.

Environmental Alarmism Killing Mankind’s Most Ancient Dream

Titled “Forget Mars” a recent environmental alarmist article begins with the plea, “Please stop with these reckless journey imaginings” and demands that humans stop “presenting space voyages as inevitable.” Instead, mankind is admonished to throw our collective weight and brains into fixing the harm we’ve done here on Earth and to stop our expansionist pipe dreams.

Greenpeace Founding Member: 'The Whole Climate Crisis Is Not Only Fake News, It's Fake Science'

Tyler O'Neil, PJ Media

Patrick Moore, a founding member of the environmentalist organization Greenpeace, slammed climate alarmists for promoting a fake emergency. President Trump tweeted Moore's remarks shortly after he made them. What is climate change, if it's not a man-made imminent crisis? "Climate change is a perfectly natural phenomenon and this modern warm period actually began about 300 years ago when Little Ice Age began to come to an end. There is nothing to be afraid of." Moore argued that the biggest problem with phasing out fossil fuels entirely would be mass starvation in the cities.

Climate change activists are filled with hysteria, hot air

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

If Mr. Nye is the old crank spinning hysterical yarns, AOC is the young, earnest believer who intends to weaponize the claptrap into the deadly serious. You see, people today erroneously talk about socialism as some kind of economic system. It is not. Socialism is a political construct that replaces individual liberty with government control over everything. Global warming hysteria is just the pretext these people need to justify the eradication of individual rights. AOC’s “Green Old Deal” would not cost a dime. That is what prison labor camps are for.

The left's new arrogant heroes and their hypocritical views

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

Most of us do our best to recycle and take other energy-saving actions. We make an effort to live up to the standards we espouse in life. When your mission, however, is to coerce every other American into living the life of a caveman in the dark ages because of “climate change,” you have a special responsibility to take it seriously and behave as though you actually believe what you’re saying and pledging to do to everyone else. Facts do matter, and celebrity won’t protect you from everything.

Our Planet Is Not Fragile

Walter E. Williams, Townhall

Leftists constantly preach such nonsense as "The world that we live in is beautiful but fragile." "The 3rd rock from the sun is a fragile oasis." "Remember that Earth needs to be saved every single day." These and many other statements, along with apocalyptic predictions, are stock in trade for environmentalists. Worse yet, this fragile-earth indoctrination is fed to the nation's youth from kindergarten through college. That's why many millennials support Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.

100 Years Of Teaching Children Lies About America

How did we get to a place where 64 percent of the men and women defending our country believe it is the source of most of the world’s ills? Over the next month we are going to explore that question, and the first part of the answer to that question is that our education system has become a vehicle for teaching children to despise their own country, its founders and its founding principles. #theLeftLies
