2020-07-16 What is the Green New Deal?

This looks like a lot to read but is is just a bunch of crap. The jest of it is, though pure magic and forced-labor camps, the United States will be able to eliminate emissions of greenhouse gases by 40-60 percent. This requires absolutely all carbon emitting vehicles to be eradicated (a word used frequently). Do you have any other car than a hybrid (which may not be enough) or an electric car? Too bad. You will go outside one day and its gone. Can not afford an electric car? Especially since everyone will have to buy them at once – there is public transportation, and you have now lost control of your mobility and are no dependent on the government to get groceries. That is if there is enough space on the bus – everyone will need a ride. But don’t worry, you will get ride rations. The liberals have your back!

Besides 98% of all vehicles on the road being eradicated, any appliances that use more than 40-60% less energy than they do now will be eradicated. Well, you just will not be able to use it as much. As long as the electricity usage fits into your energy rations. The liberals have your back!

And water, processing water and transporting it is expensive. All of this infrastructure also causes carbon emissions. You guessed it, no worries as long as your 2 minute cold shower fits into your monthly water ration. The liberals have your back!

But no worries. We can all sacrifice that little bit of comfort so countries classified as developing nations will be exempt. Your effort will help countries like China. They need to focus on virus manufacturing, not energy saving.

You get the idea. This also goes into how everyone will be employed, god damn right, you’ll be at the green, environmentally friendly labor camps; er, I mean the government run facilities. But you are lucky to have a job. The liberals have your back!

Got your own business? No you don’t.

So the true genius in this plan is everything will be done. High paying jobs while cutting industries. Great new houses, while regulating building.

The only way this can work is if a central entity coordinates and executes in concert, all these initiatives. We know this central entity as the government. There will be no room for citizen run production as it does not fit. A plan like this, which has been submitted to the government; and they are FUCKING SERIOUS; can only work in a true communist run society.

We have already seen this – the soviet union controlled all production – food, water, shelter, occupations. Rations controlled consumption. Consumption controlled the population. And no local police. Only government soldiers.

The liberals complain about a dictatorship. This is because evil, real evil, has to reveal itself. Evil will always tell you what it is doing. Evil tells you out of pride, thinking there is not a damn thing you can do to stop it.

Well, we can. We need to change local and national politics. They already fight to have a popular vote and essentially eliminate the sovereignty of our states. So this is just crazy conspiracy theories? Not any more.

Please take ten minutes to read this. Once you calm down, once your blood pressure returns to normal, GET ACTIVATED.

These two working men go through it, and explain it well.

The Green New Deal – (aka, death of the last stronghold nation on the planet)

RESOLUTION
Recognizing the duty of the Federal Government to create
a Green New Deal.
Whereas the October 2018 report entitled ‘‘Special Report on
Global Warming of 1.5 oC’’ by the Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change and the November 2018
Fourth National Climate Assessment report found that—
(1) human activity is the dominant cause of observed climate change over the past century;
(2) a changing climate is causing sea levels to rise
and an increase in wildfires, severe storms, droughts, and
other extreme weather events that threaten human life,
healthy communities, and critical infrastructure;
(3) global warming at or above 2 degrees Celsius beyond preindustrialized levels will cause—
(A) mass migration from the regions most affected by climate change;
(B) more than $500,000,000,000 in lost annual
economic output in the United States by the year
2100;
(C) wildfires that, by 2050, will annually burn
at least twice as much forest area in the western
United States than was typically burned by wildfires
in the years preceding 2019;
(D) a loss of more than 99 percent of all coral
reefs on Earth;
(E) more than 350,000,000 more people to be
exposed globally to deadly heat stress by 2050; and
(F) a risk of damage to $1,000,000,000,000 of
public infrastructure and coastal real estate in the
United States; and

(4) global temperatures must be kept below 1.5 degrees Celsius above preindustrialized levels to avoid the
most severe impacts of a changing climate, which will require—
(A) global reductions in greenhouse gas emissions from human sources of 40 to 60 percent from
2010 levels by 2030; and
(B) net-zero global emissions by 2050;
Whereas, because the United States has historically been responsible for a disproportionate amount of greenhouse
gas emissions, having emitted 20 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions through 2014, and has a high technological capacity, the United States must take a leading
role in reducing emissions through economic transformation;
Whereas the United States is currently experiencing several
related crises, with—
(1) life expectancy declining while basic needs, such
as clean air, clean water, healthy food, and adequate
health care, housing, transportation, and education, are
inaccessible to a significant portion of the United States
population;
(2) a 4-decade trend of wage stagnation,
deindustrialization, and antilabor policies that has led
to—
(A) hourly wages overall stagnating since the
1970s despite increased worker productivity;
(B) the third-worst level of socioeconomic mobility in the developed world before the Great Recession;
(C) the erosion of the earning and bargaining
power of workers in the United States; and

(D) inadequate resources for public sector
workers to confront the challenges of climate change
at local, State, and Federal levels; and
(3) the greatest income inequality since the 1920s,
with—
(A) the top 1 percent of earners accruing 91
percent of gains in the first few years of economic
recovery after the Great Recession;
(B) a large racial wealth divide amounting to a
difference of 20 times more wealth between the average white family and the average black family; and
(C) a gender earnings gap that results in
women earning approximately 80 percent as much
as men, at the median;
Whereas climate change, pollution, and environmental destruction have exacerbated systemic racial, regional, social, environmental, and economic injustices (referred to
in this preamble as ‘‘systemic injustices’’) by disproportionately affecting indigenous peoples, communities of
color, migrant communities, deindustrialized communities, depopulated rural communities, the poor, low-income workers, women, the elderly, the unhoused, people
with disabilities, and youth (referred to in this preamble
as ‘‘frontline and vulnerable communities’’);
Whereas, climate change constitutes a direct threat to the national security of the United States—
(1) by impacting the economic, environmental, and
social stability of countries and communities around the
world; and
(2) by acting as a threat multiplier;
Whereas the Federal Government-led mobilizations during
World War II and the New Deal created the greatest

middle class that the United States has ever seen, but
many members of frontline and vulnerable communities
were excluded from many of the economic and societal
benefits of those mobilizations; and
Whereas the House of Representatives recognizes that a new
national, social, industrial, and economic mobilization on
a scale not seen since World War II and the New Deal
era is a historic opportunity—
(1) to create millions of good, high-wage jobs in the
United States;
(2) to provide unprecedented levels of prosperity and
economic security for all people of the United States; and
(3) to counteract systemic injustices: Now, therefore,

  1. I have been telling people cars with gas engine will be illegal they think I am nutz go figure.

  2. Of course this will never work. Government is too wasteful, inefficient and corrupt. The rich and powerful will not suffer. We the citizen will. I wonder how much worse it needs to get before citizens have had enough? And hope it is not too late by that time. The only solution is for Americans to save America…again.
