Sanders and AOC introduce a ’climate emergency’ resolution

On Tuesday, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Earl Blumenauer came together to introduce a joint resolution calling for the US to join 16 other countries in declaring a ’climate emergency’. ’We are going to have to take on the greed of the fossil fuel industry and the ignorance of Donald Trump’, Sanders said Tuesday.

Hey Bernie, may not be a great idea to co-sponsor anything with someone that has been pretty much wrong on everything she's said or proposed in her already-too-long term in the House. Especially if you're actually serious about running for President, but if not, then go for it--what's another failed piece of legislation under your name?

These lefties have been declaring a national emergency over climate change, wait! global warming, wait! global cooling! wait! the population bomb, wait! eugenics, wait! the extinction of blondes, wait! being buried in horseshit, wait! the Second Coming (and every doomsday in between) etc. etc. etc. forever. And like every End-of-the-world prophet and cult whose expiration date has come, they conveniently ignore their failed predictions and move on to the next one (granted, AOC broke new ground by calling her dire prediction 'a joke'), counting on the idiot masses to forget their misplaced faith and have their egos stroked by taking up the new call to arms. Any legitimate, but boring, climate/environmental concerns are basically being ignored because of this flashy bull$hit, and like the border crisis, they help cause the problem then turn around and blame everyone else for it. F#ck these retards.

Mexican border being overrun with immigrants, I sleep. Weather being slightly irregular, I wake.

That's right ignore facts and data to push a socialist agenda and secure your rule as the elitists. The motives of this so called environmental crisis are out in the open. Just look at what they call for. They have nothing to do with reduced environmental impact. Massive solar farms when solar is far more polluting than even natural gas and detrimental to local environments, rebuilding the national infrastructure at massive tax cost and massive environmental cost, removing high speed transit to actually go backwards in time as far as travel, removing the food source of millions for synthetic and highly processed vegetable based alternatives destroying even more land and creating even more strain on the environment. All these policies fly directly in the face of real environmentalism. They are only interested in power as usual. If they cared about environmental impact they would increase local environmental activism and make a real impact on our planet. They want to tax us to death and find any path to communism they can.

Well, it's a start, but clearly, coming from people nobody takes seriously it doesn't have much of a future. Any such a thing they propose has little point being discussed on a national level. For it to work there has to be a global initiative accompanied by serious sanctions to any who would opt not to comply. You need to shut down China, USA, India etc. for a while for these measures to be effective.

Irrelevant "news". They have zero support from either party. They will both be irrelevant until at least 2024.
