No planes, no cars or trucks – say goodbye to trains and every other petroleum fueled mode of transportation – as the US goes 100% fossil free in the next 11 years under The Green New Deal presented by leading Democrat, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. But that not all – money and housing for people “unwilling or unable to work” as extremism goes mainstream.
We’ve always had people who thought that facts and research were irrelevant. After all, they knew they were right. The difference now is that, from Greenpeace to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, they boast about their ignorance while dominating debates.
They sure can talk the talk but when it comes to walking the walk many of the biggest names leave a lot to be desired. But does their “do as I say – not as I do” approach to climate change erode public support. They say no – but what do I say.
The most uncomfortable fact for pipeline opponents is that, for the First Nations groups who live along the Coastal Gaslink and Kinder Morgan pipelines, it’s all about a generational opportunity to alleviate poverty and raise the standard of living on reserves. That used to matter to the progressive left but obviously not any more.
Have you noticed that pipeline opponents never mention the First Nations who strongly support the 3 pipeline pipeline proposals in an effort to alleviate poverty on their reserves. Not a word, not a mention – big environment and their political stalking horses pretend they don’t exist.
When unintended consequences are so clearly obvious – there is no other conclusion to reach but that governments are incompetent. And the interventions in the real estate market by all three levels is proof of that.
