    The Green New Deal: Same old socialist scam in sparkling packaging
    https://www.americanthinker.com/blog...packaging.html

    ...The background for the deal references the debatable assertions of the latest U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change special report on global warming. The IPCC report foresees much of the usual climate calamity related to unknowable atmospheric conditions in the distant future.

    After all, climate outlooks are hypothetical claims that need to be verified. The outlooks are not fact. And, so far, the outlooks are not playing out with the past 20 years of measured global temperatures....

    ...The brief 14-page New Deal document exaggerates a problem that may not exist and provides solutions that likely will not work. The deal commands the kind of programs of aggressive redistribution of wealth and transfer of power to government employees that were attempted by the previous administration to save the planet.

    Goals and their statist socialist pursuit are designed to evoke extreme action that is more political than practical. For instance, one required goal is attaining "net-zero global [greenhouse gas] emissions by 2050." This would not be possible even if the whole world were enslaved in socialism. After all, the elite socialist ruling class would always have their perks — private jets, yachts, limos, energy-intensive entourages, gated mansions, exotic vacation spots, ad nauseam....

    Climate brainwashing in schools and the Democrats' lurch to the left
    https://www.americanthinker.com/blog..._the_left.html

    The mainstreaming of climate change hysteria into the public schools, beginning in early grades, has probably more to do with the overwhelming leftist sentiments of the rising generations than any other factor, including demographic shifts in the population. Preferring socialism to capitalism is linked to the belief that corporations, particularly certain kinds, are responsible for rising temperatures, and only government can change the direction and save the planet....

    ...Representative Ocasio-Cortez is convinced the world will end in 12 years without adoption of all parts of the Green New Deal, and since she has taken the initiative, she also wants us to know that for now, she is the boss (so much for our elected officials serving the people). People, she tells us, should stop having children, since they have no future if temperatures rise another degree or two.

    Get rid of all meat-eating (except for the nomenklatura), ban air travel (trains will take their place: track 7 for Australia), rebuild all structures to make them energy-efficient without the use of fossil fuels, Medicare for all, and free college education.

    And the rich will pay for all this (estimated at $50–90 trillion over ten years) with a higher marginal tax rate...

    The Secular Theology of the Green New Deal
    https://www.americanthinker.com/arti..._new_deal.html

    A quote attributed to C.S. Lewis stated: “Once people stop believing in God, the problem is not that they will believe in nothing; rather, the problem is that they will believe anything.”

    Today, among secular leftists, radical environmentalism has attained the status of theology and their catechism is the “Green New Deal.”

    ...The radical environment agenda is not public policy, its dogma.

    One person who understood this was the late Dr. Michael Crichton, the celebrated science-fiction writer and author of Jurassic Park, The Andromeda Strain, and other best sellers. Fifteen years ago, Crichton released his techno-thriller, State of Fear, which challenged the claims of the global warming alarmists. Rereading it today, in light of the Green New Deal, one is impressed not only with Crichton’s grasp of the science, but with his prescience in forecasting how modern environmentalism has morphed into a quasi-religion, complete with heresies and predictions of the apocalypse.

    In State of Fear, Crichton suggests that radical environmentalism is essentially a politically correct narrative designed to advance an agenda. The agenda is social control through irrational fear. As one of his characters puts it: “Industrialized nations provide their citizens with unprecedented safety, health, and comfort... Average life spans increased fifty percent in the last century. Yet modern people live in abject fear... [T]hey are convinced that the environment of the entire planet is being destroyed around them. Remarkable! Like the belief in witchcraft, it's an extraordinary delusion -- a global fantasy worthy of the Middle Ages.”

    And the delusion is fed by the corrupt universities. “The modern state of fear could never exist without universities feeding it,” Crichton's character says. Echoing Orwell, he observes that the modern university invents new terrors, new social anxieties, new restrictive codes, words you can't say, thoughts you can't think. “There is a particular neo-Stalinist mode of thought that is required to support all of this... The notion that these institutions are liberal is a cruel joke.”

    Feinstein's situation here is not unique: it's part of a global abuse of children to promote this fake "climate change" crap. From the Guardian:


    The school climate change strikes are inspiring – but they should shame us

    https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...nberg-children

    What are we to make of today’s strike by schoolchildren, in Britain and across the world, part of a rapidly growing movement aiming for a global walkout of kids on 15 March? How should we react to a phenomenon that began with a single child, a Stockholm teenager by the name of Greta Thunberg, who skipped class one Friday last August to sit in protest on the steps of the Swedish parliament, and which today saw primary-aged children, as well as teenagers, following her lead, wielding placards as they marched in Parliament Square and the streets of dozens of British towns and cities?
