Republicans Who “Own Climate Change” Would Have Lots Of Advantages Or Something

Warmists are always trying to get Other People to believe in anthropogenic climate change, finding new and inventive methods. Of course, actually providing rock solid scientific evidence has escaped the Cult of Climastrology, being something that is virtually impossible to do, and inference is not causality. Hence, we get things such as this

7 Advantages for Republicans if They Owned the Climate Debate[1]

Now that a global climate deal has been struck in Paris, it’s up to each nation to live up to its commitments. Republicans leaders in Congress have vowed to fight anything to do with climate change. But there are many good reasons smart Republicans should reevaluate their resistance to both science and the global consensus, and in 2016 make climate change a political issue of their own.

Climate change will hit the crowded tropics worst. Droughts, floods and severe storms in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean could cause massive northward migrations on a scale dwarfing what Europe experienced last year. Accepting climate change would help Republicans end the stalemate on illegal immigration and push for a realistic and comprehensive policy that prepares us for the future of mass immigrations. (See my recent blog post, Why Trump’s Wall won’t Work[2].

Ironically, Republican presidents have a great history when it comes to the environment. Nixon created the EPA. Teddy Roosevelt started the National Park system. If Republicans owned climate change as their own issue, then they could set the debate on whether government programs and carbon taxes should lead the way, or private enterprise and tax incentives. Isn’t that a debate worth having in an election year?

‘Climate change’ is not an environmental issue, it is a political issue. And it is cute how Republicans are supposed to embrace taxation as a policy to “solve” climate change. In other words, this whole thing is about Republicans acting like Democrats.
