Democrats Introduce ‘Climate Change’ Bonds Bill, Say You’re Unpatriotic If You Do Not Buy Them

It has zero chance of passing a Republican Congress, it will never even make it out of committee. This is a new one in regards to using Other People’s money, though

(The Hill) Two Senate Democrats have introduced a bill to create a new climate change adaptation fund to be paid for through new federal bonds.

The bond program — from Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) — would provide up to $200 million annually for a Commerce Department grant program to fund climate change adaptation work around the country.

Introducing the bill on Wednesday, Boxer and Durbin compared the climate change bond program to the war bonds sold by the federal government during the World Wars.

Except, those wars were real, based on real issues. If Barbara and Dick really cared, they’d stop traveling across the country using fossil fuels.

Boxer said the bonds would let Americans literally buy into federal climate change work.

In other words, they will be forced to buy those bonds when all is said and done, and their patriotism will be questioned if they don’t.

“It gives the American people the chance to adapt to what is coming while we fight to reduce the ravages,” she said at a press conference. “We already see the ravages have started.”


The fund would tap an expert committee — made up of bipartisan appointments — to vet projects designed to adapt to climate change, focusing on everything from droughts to flooding to severe weather events.

In other words, the weather. Things that have always happened, and will always happen.

Boxer is super excited

Funny how all this seems to enable more government. Because that is what it does. But, if you don’t want to buy climate bonds, you’re unpatriotic (you thought I was being over the top earlier in the post and headline, didn’t you)

The stupid, it burns!
