The Green New Deal is not radical, but reactionary to an endangered world

I can tell you the company I work for was able to keep and add jobs in the US that had been slated for Mexico. In addition, they have made capital investments ahead of schedule.

Good for them. That is not what is happening across the entire economy.

Imagine being so one sided and consumed by politics you actually are passionate and convinced humans are having no effect on the climate because the folks on fox news told you it was BS made up by democrats.

The 3-4 hours of fox news ya'll consume every day is bad for your brain. The same goes for MSNBC and the democrats.

So how can a study from nearly 50 years be wrong?! Science is always right! 

I guess in your world science is a religion... that has all the answers. When reality science is living and constantly collecting and analyzing data. New technologies, new research, new avenues all open and and allow for more peer review on studies. 

But to that end, here is what the author of the original 1975 article has to say: https://www.insidescience.org/news/my-1975-cooling-world-story-doesnt-make-todays-climate-scientists-wrong

I do agree that people should listen to both sides and make us their minds. I usually put much less, to zero credence on those for either side who claim to be the only ones that know what's correct and if you disagree with them, on anything, your wrong.

All things being said, a lot of predictions, on both sides are crapshoots. Have you ever notices there seems to be a correlation between the results and those funding the studies

Since the 60's we were going to -

  • Run out of breathable air 
  • Run out of water 
  • Run out of fossil fuels
  • The next ice age was coming 
  • Global temperatures would rise to the point where would all melt   

And so on and so on. As the Billy Joel song said so well, "We didn't start the fire".

Can and should changes be made - yes. Has progress been made - yes. 

One of my frustrations is that many want to put the blame and responsibility on the U.S. and us alone. Not many seemed to have issues with the fact that the Paris Accord would not hold many other countries to the standards that the US was to be held to, but they were expecting us to pay the largest share. Also, places like China, Russia, and India are not measuring and reporting the same way we do.

Some other, Have you ever wondered ....

  • How do these protesters for both sides afford to fly all over the place?
  • How many of the ones preaching fly in private planes?
  • How many of these Global conferences are help in the most expensive and luxurious locations?

Pretty good post.

And by the way, that whole "97% of scientists believe..." deal?  It speaks to your point above that I have bolded.  Follow the $.  It will never lead you astray.  There is an entire industry in place and continuing to be built.  And the great thing about it, is that it is self-sustaining with your tax $ for "more research", which they are ALWAYS going to need to prevent the impending catastrophe.  It's the perfect machine!

Again--we should be mindful of and good stewards of the earth's resources.  Just don't sell me chckensheet and tell me it's chicken salad.

This is a worthwhile post too.  Thanks.

And there is an entire industry in place.  Just ask Al Gore.

you guys do realize that industry and technology developing around credible/innovative science is pretty much the entire foundation of the American economy of the last 200 years, right?

you do also realize Billy Joel sucks, right?

I'm all for credible/innovative science.  This doesn't check those boxes for me.

Billy Joel wrote the soundtrack to many a youth's teenage years, sir.

No.  But 97% of my friends sort-of agree with me, but not really.  Just trust me--I'm telling the truth!

Agree.  The sticky part is when it turns solely political and the warning signs are ignored....

wait...does Bear Sterns mean that the housing market and finance aren't real? 

or does it actually mean that private companies and industries should have both more stringent and more efficient over-sight and regulation?

There are a lot of facts being presented in this thread.

None are truer than this one.  Thank you for your courage.

Bear Stearns wasn’t a private company,  and  investment banking and securities trading and brokeraging isn’t a private industry.  But if a private company is gonna take a loan from the government it certainly invites government oversight & regulation, and Solyndra received very little of either.
