    Don’t Overthink a Climate-Change Debate

    "
    Governor Inslee, you say that America has to lead in fighting the climate crisis. But China already emits more carbon pollution than the United States, and India will soon outrank us as well. Why is this America’s battle to fight? What can the United States do about other country’s greenhouse-gas emissions?

    Vice President Biden, you have discussed the importance of fighting climate change. President Barack Obama also said fighting climate change was important in 2008, but he failed to pass a climate bill through the Senate, and he didn’t help complete a climate treaty until the end of his second term. Why will you be different?

    Senator Warren, you have proposed dozens of plans to bring about “broad structural change” in the United States. Some of these plans mention climate change, but many don’t. In your flurry of reform, where will you rank fighting climate change?

    Former Representative Beto O’Rourke, you have released an aggressive plan for fighting climate change. Your home state of Texas is undergoing an economic boom due to increased oil and natural-gas drilling. How will you weigh the benefits of fighting climate change—which will require keeping many of those fossil fuels in the ground—with this burst of short-term economic prosperity?"


    we need more debates on all topics, not less!

    We could always go more nuclear.

    Oh but nuclear power is evil according to the left. Only power production method that fucks over as many Americans as possible can even be considered.

    It sounds like the DNC has really just gone with the flow of being thought police to the point of quick eliminations of the masses of people who think they should be President. No political sharks there, and 19 of the 20 will be gone soon, anyway.

    The Dims know their AGW cult cannot withstand any degree of informed criticism, so they are simply going to outlaw it.

    No, it's a real topic. The evidence that the Earth is warming is undeniable and while some of this may be due cyclical elements, the fact that the warming so closely parallels the increase of hothouse gases and the decrease of the rain forests makes a strong case that at least some of the change is due to human activity. The problem is that the issue has become so politicized that a doofus like Ocasio-Cortez proposes a man made catastrophe, her Green New Deal, as a solution to climate change and people like Nancy Pelosi who know better say it is aspirational, and on the other side people who should know better say there is no problem at all.

    I agree. The Anthropogenic Global Warming political theorists have come under scrutiny by the greater scientific community who showed mathematically that Al Gore's bullshit theory was not based on the truth.

    The last thing we need now is politicians debating this issue that they have already politicized beyond any possibility of rational discussion.
