Ocasio-Cortez has stated that mankind will be vanquished in 12 years. Her New Green Deal has a time frame of 10 years to implement assuming it starts – today. In the EU, they continue to establish time frames reaching emission goals extending to 2050 – 31 years in the future. China really doesn’t give a rat’s arse, they just agree to whatever proposal is put forth, sign on the dotted line, and then refuse to actually comply. What makes the Green New Deal so ridiculous is that it only applies to the US. So the rest of the world will keep producing their climate change pollution, push out their goals 31 years in the future, and we’ll all be Socially broke or dead.
The Green New Deal states that the US will be the major exporter of Green technology, expertise, products, and services. But according to her calculations, there would be no one left to export to because they missed the train and did nothing – so they would be dead.
Who wrote the Green New Deal?
The Media would have us believe that Ocasio-Cortez was the author. However, her acumen would beg to differ. In fact, Ed Markay, who is listed as ‘co-author’, is likely the frontrunner. However, given the world of politics, I imagine they both had the help of some powerful prompters who hired the best writers to create this monstrosity.
What is not so headlined is the fact that the Green Deal calls for the implementation of the “social cost of carbon”, which is essentially a tax first introduced by Obama. It is basically the same ‘tax’ that disproportionally affects low income workers and resulted in the Yellow Vest Movement in France. Not working too well.
The basic concept of a carbon tax is that the increased cost will incentivize industries to find ways to pollute less, and incentivize citizens to stay home more and conserve. A number of economists feel this tax will lower emissions while creating more jobs. But there is absolutely no correlative proof that a carbon tax creates jobs…and despite its implementation in France and Germany, they have failed again to reach their stated goals pushing the date ever further. What it does provide is revenue for governments to offset deficit spending or divert elsewhere.
Today, the Federal and state governments impose excise taxes on gasoline. The federal tax is 18.4cents per gallon, while state taxes vary but range roughly in the 31cent range. We are already being taxed around 50cents per gallon. Why isn’t this money spent on ‘green stuff’?
Where did this tax originate?
The Revenue Act of 1932 incorporated the first oil tax at 1cent per gallon. The purpose? To help balance the budget deficit. Over 86 years the tax has increased by 5000%. That’s called government spending.
According to a report by Science Direct in 2016, $28 billion in carbon revenues are collected each year from 40 different countries. Of that total, 27% is used to subsidize green spending in energy efficiency, the balance is allocated to a general fund and to corporate and individual taxpayers through tax cuts and rebates. In fact, Sweden, the UK, British Columbia, Mexico, Finland and Iceland spend -0-% on Green Funding. Australia spends 15%. Germany and Canada are not mentioned.
The point is simplistic. The Socialist Agenda is always ‘how funds should be spent’, rather than ‘how funds are spent’.
Which companies reap the reward of the Green Funding?
According to a report issued by Friends of Science,;
“Since 1991, the Energy Foundation has been the main instrument that a network of influential U.S. foundations has used to define a portfolio of policy options, political strategies, and energy technologies to address global warming. It was set up by way of large block grants from the Rockefeller Foundation, Pew Charitable Trusts, and MacArthur Foundation, and supported in later years by the Hewlett Foundation, Packard Foundation, and other funders. The Energy Foundation’s principal function is to “leverage money in a highly concentrated pattern on behalf of policies that shift markets, industry, and consumers in the direction of renewable energy technologies and energy efficiency practices.”
It should come as no surprise that the aforementioned foundations are ALL Liberal, Democrat affiliates.
Of course no Green Funding Dark Money scam is complete without highlighting Al Gore. Between 1999 and 2019, Al Gore managed to amass a personal wealth rivaling Mitt Romney, pegged at over $300 million. In 1999, his wealth was calculated at roughly $1.5 million all of which was inherited from his family. His entire fortune was amassed through companies he started that mooched off the global warming scam.
And the Paris Climate Accord funds? Those funds are predominantly shifted to spending in Africa whose carbon footprint is -0-. If in fact Green Funding was Green, it would be spent on those countries whose footprint is the greatest – not the least…
When in doubt… follow der money.
And lastly, the media cites FDR’s New Deal as a compliment to the Green New Deal. But FDR’s deal was the impetus that spiraled this country in a forever greater debt, a forever greater welfare, and a forever greater depletion of the middle class. It is also noteworthy that the New Deal was implemented via Executive Order, because it would never have passed Congress.
