Green New Deal-rollout both sides of the climate-rattling change debate

nearvideo green New Deal rollout shakes Washington the climate change debate

WASHINGTON — the faith of hard-skeptics of climate change, the introduction of the Green New Deal, was with his plans for the redistribution of wealth, high taxes, and a massive transition to a carbon-neutral economy, a for a hidden agenda.

“We always knew the climate was a stalking horse for socialism, communism, totalitarianism, whatever you want to call it,” said Steve Milloy of

Milloy is what many climate scientists and environmental activists disparagingly as a “denier.”

But even many Democrats who support the climate change agenda of the rollout saw as overwhelmed.

“I’ve read it and I read it again, and I asked [co-sponsor sen] Ed Markey, ‘What the hell is that?'” Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Discussion participants responded with howls of laughter.

Some hope that the excesses of the Green New Deal, more moderate voices to emerge.


“The climate debate is driven has been said for years by the edges of the individual party,” Jason Grumet, President of the Bipartisan Policy Center. “A more aggressive unrealistic in the left margin to contradict, the irresponsible the right edge is not likely to, the kind of consensus that is necessary in order to make meaningful change.”

Other question, is the desperate sense of urgency, the transition to a carbon-neutral economy.

John Christie, the head of the Atmospheric Sciences Department at the University of Alabama, has long doubted that the so-called 97 percent consensus among climate science. He takes the greatest scientific discoveries in history have often broken, with consensus.

The astronomer Galileo Galilei was sentenced to life under house arrest for comprehensive heliocentrism – the belief that the earth and planets revolve around the sun.

In 1931 the book “a Hundred authors Against Einstein” was published in the questioning of his theory of relativity. More recently, Australian scientists Barry Marshall overturned a recognized method of treatment for ulcers, by suggesting they were not caused by stress, but by bacterial infections. Today, the standard-ulcer-treatment is an antibiotic.

Christie agrees that the CO2-level rises and the planet heats up easily, but his research shows that computer models that predict the catastrophic consequences of climate change to be unrealistic.


“I have to show a real, hard look at climate model output, these models are simply too sensitive to carbon dioxide,” he said. “The real world is spiraling into some dangerous area of climate change.”

For the expression, the display and the other (his research shows that rising CO2 concentrations have some positive effects on agricultural yields are higher than they have ever been, and the earth is greener than at any other time in recorded history.) But Christie has been alienated from the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, of which he is a part.

After the introduction of the Green New Deal non-binding resolution, which many democratic senators took to lambast the the Senate to what they believed was a Trick of majority Leader Mitch McConnell to agree to the resolution of a “show”.

“We give everyone a Chance to go on record and see how you feel about the Green New Deal,” McConnell said.

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called it a “cynical ploy.”

“I urge Leader to tell McConnell that our climate crisis is real, that it is caused by people, and that Congress has to act,” he said. “This is what two-thirds of the American population votes.”


A passionate sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, Dr. I., weighed.

“The Americans see in their everyday life. This is not a scientific theory any more,” he cried. “You see the forest fires, you see the drought, you see the floods, you can see that the sea level will rise…”

Christie measurements suggest you are wrong.

“What differentiates me from many of them,” he said, “am I actually build the data sets that you can answer questions on climate change.”

Said Whitehouse claims of catastrophic weather extremes, Christie, that his data is not back.

“I had, in fact, a very detailed analysis for the United States,” he said. “What I found is that in the last 124 years, the weather dropped to extreme, and Extreme temperatures, both record temperatures and record low temperatures.”

Novelist Michael Crichton, the Caltech Michelin lecture in 1993, offered what some might see as a peace of mind about the future of the earths ” climate. He looked back to the turn of the last century, when people “know what a radio was, or an airport, or a movie, or a TV or a computer, or a mobile phone, or a jet, an antibiotic, a rocket, a satellite, an MRI, ICU, IUD, or what IBM was…”

Crichton went on, and presents a long list of scientific inventions of the 20th century, changed the human life for the better. Towards the end of the lecture he asked, “Now, you tell me you can predict the world of 2100?”
