Democratic Party Platform Calls For WWII Scale Mobilization To Fight Hotcoldwetdry

Anthropogenic climate change has become another one of those issues that Democrats worship over the years. Not enough to really make any big changes in their own lives, mind you, because they really do not care whether it is a scientific fact, nor do they care that it involves little science. This is all about politics, in creating a big and stronger central government, in controlling citizen’s lives, in controlling private entities and the economy, and increasing taxation.

Democratic Platform Calls For WWII-Scale Mobilization To Solve Climate Crisis

This month, the full Democratic Platform Committee approved the strongest statement about the urgent need for climate action ever issued by a major party in this country.

The platform makes for the starkest possible contrast with a party that just nominated Donald Trump — a man who has called climate change a hoax invented by and for the Chinese, who has denied basic reality such as the drought in California, and who has vowed to (try to) scuttle the unanimous agreement by the world’s nations in Paris to take whatever measures are necessary to avert catastrophic warming and keep total warming “well below 2°C.”

In contrast, one party in this country has finally embraced the blunt — and scientifically accurate — language of climate hawks as to what those measures actually entail:

We believe the United States must lead in forging a robust global solution to the climate crisis. We are committed to a national mobilization, and to leading a global effort to mobilize nations to address this threat on a scale not seen since World War II. In the first 100 days of the next administration, the President will convene a summit of the world’s best engineers, climate scientists, policy experts, activists, and indigenous communities to chart a course to solve the climate crisis.

Of course, as I noted yesterday, most countries seem rather lackadaisical when it comes to ratifying the Paris climate agreement. Some are actively hostile to it.

But, regardless, if the U.S. must lead, should not the very people who pushing this lead themselves? Should they not walk the talk, practice what they preach?

The final draft of the platform — which must still be approved by the Democratic National Convention next week — also calls for a price on CO2 and other greenhouse gases: “Democrats believe that carbon dioxide, methane, and other greenhouse gases should be priced to reflect their negative externalities, and to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy and help meet our climate goals.”

Which would significantly raise the cost of living while lowering the standards of living for middle and lower class citizens. Yet, again, the very people who are pushing this refuse to give up their own fossil fuels, to make their own homes 100% renewable energy, to only buy local, to turn their AC up to 85, etc and so on. Put in context of the rest of their platform, this is all about Progressive (nice fascist) government. Read through the full platform. Government, government, government.
