The Radical Insanity of Climate Change

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Below is a press release from the chair of the U.S. House Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. It is a prime example of the perverse insanity that has gripped much of this society, misleading us into nonsensical acts of idiocy in the false belief that the mere existence of man is causing the climate to change to the extent that we’re all gonna die.

By the way, this IS YOUR tax dollars at work. Is this what you really want? Do you have any idea at all what this plan to make all our public lands carbon neutral by 2040 means? Of course you don’t.

Take note of who the chair of the House Committee has selected as guest speakers for this event. It shows the radicalism and insanity.

Chair Grijalva, Committee Democrats to Introduce Landmark Climate Change Legislation Slashing Emissions From Public Lands and Waters

Washington D.C. – Chair Raúl M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.) and several members of the Natural Resources Committee will lead a press conference at 12:00 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, Dec. 10, to unveil their flagship legislation to fight the climate crisis. Members will discuss the legislation’s importance and describe the path it provides to end our public lands’ and waters’ contribution to climate change by 2040.

The landmark bill – authored by Grijalva and cosponsored by a team of Committee members – is the culmination of a year of hearings, roundtables, public forums and other public outreach efforts to learn more about how best to tackle climate change. Since taking the House majority, Natural Resources Committee Democrats have spent much of the past year tackling climate change from every angle.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, climate-harming emissions from public lands account for nearly a quarter of the U.S. total. The new bill seeks to reduce that figure while simultaneously promoting positive climate actions so that the total net contribution of public lands to greenhouse gas emissions is zero by 2040.

In February, the Committee kicked off a historic month of climate change hearings to hear from impacted communities, launched an online platform to hear from the American people about how climate change has impacted them, and held 22 hearings in 2019 focused on climate change to hear from experts, community members, Indian Country, scientists, and advocates.

The feedback gathered through these efforts has consistently underscored the urgent need to limit climate pollution as soon as possible, and to help impacted communities adapt quickly.

The bill is endorsed by multiple stakeholders and public interest advocacy groups, who will provide remarks at the press conference.
