10 Reasons The Republican Attacks On Clean Energy & Electric Vehicles Are So Smart  

December 11th, 2017 by Zachary Shahan

Republicans are interesting creatures. There are the voters, and then there are the politicians. The voters like things like clean air, jobs, Social Security, and ice cream. The politicians, on the other hand, like to let corporations pollute as much as they want, have been known to crash a global economy from time to time1, seem to always be looking for a way to ďlegitimatelyĒ cut holes in the social safety net (note: theyíre working on a super clever attempt to do this right now), and like to melt ice cream via flamethrowers when the ice cream eater isnít looking.

But hey, in the spirit of Monday, below are 10 reasons the latest Republican attacks on clean energy and electric vehicles might actually be a good thing.

1. The oil, coal, and natural gas industries simply havenít had a fair enough head start via government subsidies. The trillions in subsidies theyíve received from the US government in the past several decades are not enough to put them on equal footing with renewable energy and electric vehicles today. Thus, it only makes sense to cut cleantech subsidies and give fossil fuels more subsidies for the time being.

2. While many people ó the vast majority of them ó donít like pollution, some people prefer to breathe in potentially cancer-causing pollutants. Itís not fair that those people normally donít get a say. Itís unfair that people who like pollution are always on the losing end of the conversation. They have a right to freedom of speech as well! Since the pollution lovers donít get enough airtime, we should just cut any governmental support for clean technologies. That should balance things out.

3. Taking away subsidies prematurely hurts investor confidence in the government and crushes medium- and long-term investment plans. This is good since itís the governmentís role to indiscriminately attack and destabilize the investment community. Well, itís good when it comes to renewable energy and electric vehicles. Itís not good when it comes to oil, gas, coal, and nuclear, all of which should continue to get subsidies.

4. Putting government money into young and quickly developing industries increases the chance or extent to which our society will benefit from 21st century technological and economic leadership. If the US supports such industries, that is not really fair to the Chinese. The Chinese are working hard and trying to be practical in order to become a bigger and bigger economic player, so why should we interfere? China deserves a massive economic win in the remainder of the century due to its foresight ó and just because itís Chinaís turn. Yeah?

5. Air pollution disproportionately hurts lower-income communities. The goal of any good government should be to hurt the lower-income and middle-income masses while giving more money to the super rich. Thatís just good governance.

6. A livable climate is super overrated. Weíre all going to be living on Mars soon anyway. Why waste time and money on trying to protect Earth and its human inhabitants.

7. Supporting clean energy and electric vehicles would improve our national security and our resilience in the face of various global fuel challenges. Thatís just not much fun. Itís much more exciting to put lives at risk via more wars and dependence on foreign imports. (Also, those wars are great for our national debt. Just ask George W. Bush.)

8. Healthy citizens live longer, which means more services and support for those people over time. Itís cheaper and simpler if large numbers of American citizens die prematurely from high levels of pollution and more extreme natural disasters. Duh.


[/img]


9. Billionaires and big corporations in the oil, gas, and coal industries put millions of dollars into buying Republican politicians funding Republican campaigns. It would be a horrible message for the world and a breakdown in our democracy if it turned out billionaires and big corporations couldnít shape the law of the land in a way that benefited them over others.




10. Come on ó the whole world needs to come crashing down in order to instill a little humility. How will we put our collective ego into check if we donít tank the economy, tank our health, and destroy our climate?

Did you know that Trump has a fetish for the number 666? The Trump tower is 666 feet high and Trump lives on the 66th floor. Perhaps his bedroom is in the 66.6th part of the building. LOL!

The reason 666 is a big deal for a lot of people that like money is because King Solomon, reputed to be the richest person in history, received a tribute of 666 "talents" (a LARGE several pound measure of gold) each year. But in the New Testament of the bible, the number 666 is associated with the anti-Christ.

I was gob smacked when I learned that Trump's Jewish son-in-law is involved in a $666,000,000 financing deal with Santander Bank (world class crooks - 20th largest bank in the world that unloaded junk bonds on customers without warning of the risk) for some building project.

It looks like Trump wants to play the role of the End Times World Leader, whether he believes in any scripture or not.

At any rate, he is really obsessed with the number 666. I find that strange and troubling. Hitler was superstitious too...
Top five Donald Trump eerie 666 connections:

 1. Trump Tower is on 666 Fifth Avenue, New York City
 
 2. The Tower also happens to measure 666 feet tall
 
 3. Trump inherited his grandmotherís real estate empire when she died on June 6, 1966 = 6-6-6
 
 4. The billionaire tycoon announced his candidacy for president on June 16, 2015 = 6 + (1◊6) + (1+5) = 6-6-6
 
 5. And the year 2016 when he won the US election = 666+666+666+6+6+6

North Pole expected to reach 50 degrees warmer than normal

Temperatures are expected to climb to just below the freezing point on Thursday, much higher than is usual during an Arctic winter.

Weston Williams @westonwolf359

December 21, 2016 óJust a few days before Christmas, Santa may have to take off a few layers to stay comfortable at the North Pole.

According to current weather models, the Arctic is going to be unseasonably warm later this week, with air temperatures climbing to just under the freezing point (32 degrees F.) on Thursday. While that may seem plenty chilly, it's sweltering by Arctic standards, about 40-50 degrees Fahrenheit above normal for this time of year.

While anomalous warm days have always been possible Ė weather everywhere can have odd short-term fluctuations Ė some indicators suggest that unseasonable warmth at the North Pole is becoming more frequent due to global climate change and melting ice.

And after a record-breaking warm year and an unusually warm November that significantly dropped ice coverage in the Arctic, it looks like 2016 may be ending on yet another unpleasantly warm note in the far north.

According to a study published in the journal Nature earlier this year, Arctic temperature spikes occur once or twice every decade since the 1950s. But this is the second December in a row where a temperature spike like this has happened in the Arctic. Last year's spike was even more extreme than this one is predicted to be, with temperatures passing the melting point, an extremely rare occurrence in an Arctic winter.

The predicted temperatures later this week are driven in part by a series of storms that are bringing uncommonly warm air to the region. The main culprit is a storm set to hit Greenland and Britain that could be a record setter for strongest storm to develop in that area of the North Atlantic.

While two consecutive years of unseasonable heat in Arctic winter could be an indicator of climate change, Zachary Labe, a doctoral student researching the Arctic at the University of California-Irvine, cautions that two similar instances in a row do not necessarily define a new normal Ė at least, not yet.

"I don't think anyone can for sure say" that these unseasonable temperatures are becoming more common, Mr. Labe told The Washington Post. "The variability in the Arctic is tremendous."

A heat spike like this may be unusual, but the overall upward climb in Arctic temperatures is clear. While the rest of the world has also been feeling the heat on climate change, the Arctic is warming about twice as fast as the rest of the globe, making for much more dramatic environmental shifts in the far North.

In November, for instance, a month usually associated with the growth of ice in the Arctic, a sudden reversal in this trend led to the loss of 19,000 square miles of ice over five days, a phenomenon only precedented by a smaller ice loss in 2013, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Increasingly low ice coverage
may also have contributed to this week's projected highs, since the depleted ice cover east of the Nordic sea has created a channel for warmer air to flow North.

Quote
"You have more real estate available to advect the warm and moist air northward,"
Ryan Maue, a meteorologist with WeatherBell Analytics, told The Washington Post.

Agelbert gallows humor: Don't worry about a thing. President Trump has promised to Trump the mistaken belief in climate change, along with any silly concerns about pollution, the Sixth Mass Extinction, the Ten Commandments, the Golden Rule, White fun and games to put the minorities 'back in their place', any regulations that interfere with progress (i.e. fossil fuel industry profits) and China (if you can't beat em' nuke em'). 


As our Dear Leader Donald J. Drumpf (original family surname) says about non-one percenter humans and all those other life forms in the biosphere when he does his Marie Antoinette imitation, let them eat oil.

I have this idea that we might be seeing the emergence of some kind of extremely prejudiced left-wing youth movement, sort of like an American Red Guard, where crowds of high school and college kids unite via social media to plan big violent protests aimed at making us all conform to the Politically Correct/BLM/Globalist BS that they have been spoon fed in the school system.

We need an extremely prejudiced left wing movement to combat the extremely prejudiced right wing movement.  Nature abhors a vacuum.

RE


I agree with you.  We don't want the Fourth Reich.



It bothers me that the Millenials are so angry, even though I think they're somewhat off-base in their thinking. They are, after all, the future.

My son called up from Chicago at 2 am on election night, furious with me because he thought I had voted for Jill Stein, and therefore aided Trump in winning. Wanted to chew me out for "throwing my vote away". I had to remind him that Trump carried Texas by a wide margin with or without my help. (I didn't actually vote for Stein anyway, although I considered it.)

I think what is so disappointing for some people is what people like Trump represents and what it conveys by not actively going against him. The image of Trump is he is sexist, racist, homophobic and has xenophobic tendencies towards immigrants. By not fighting him you are on some level condoning those things or at best thinking these issues are not important.

The other thing, by bringing people like him into office it is giving the image that Americans are somewhat uncaring, not kind and suspicious of foreigners which goes against America's traditional values. I say all this because that is the same kind of arguments made when people voted for Brexit. What is also similar were the outcries, protests and the general despair at what this voting conveyed to the international community. There were people of my age who were ashamed to be British when they heard that Brexit had won. Many people, especially the younger generation want to be seen as open minded and have socially liberal outlooks on life and Trump (or Brexit) show the complete opposite message to the outside world. Perhaps that is the source of grief and anguish your son experienced it was certainly a common sentiment among the millennial generation in Britain.



EXACTLY RIGHT!


The Trailer Trash Trump people are already doing their typical right wing imitation of a certain fossil fueler by mocking these protesters and telling them to "quit whining".

As soon as Trailer Trash Trump is inaugurated, just watch the breathtakingly hypocritical position of the Republicans in Congress when they yammer about "respecting the law" and the "Constitutional right of the President" to name a Supine Supreme Court Justice and how we are a "nation of laws" and how "Unpatriotic it is to filibuster or interfere with the serious and Patriotic work of the legally elected Republican loyal servants."...
LOL

Eddie, these protests will soon blow over. The people you have to worry about are not, as your multiple posts and preoccupation with this indicate, on the left wing.

The people you have to worry about are the millennials that voted for Trailer Trash Trump that will see NO JOBS showing up within a year.

I know you don't believe that. But the racist, xenophobic, baser side of the white electorate has been unleashed. Trump is NOT going to be able to control it. I respect your opinion and understand your fears, but please consider that well to do people like you, not Trailer Treasure like me, will be in the crosshairs of those jobless whites angry at the gross double cross and mendacity of Trailer Trash Trump, regardless of the FACT that, AS IN THE PAST, Wall Street and Trump will do everything possible to encourage scapegoating the "dangerous left" as the "problem".

That is what you may be doing, albeit inadvertently. If you really believe that is a valid fear, I warn you that you won't see the danger to yourself from your own poor white neighbors. I have nothing to gain by instilling groundless fears in you. I am saying this for your welfare.


Now for some apocalyptic humor:

Meanwhile, expect the fossil fuelers to prudently explain to us how much prosperity is coming our way with the melting of all that useless ice in Antarctica and Greenland and all the world's glaciers. Never mind the pollution in the atmosphere and the oceans. Never mind the Sixth Great extinction in progress killing a disproportionately large portion of high order vertebrate and mammal species. That's just evolution and the tardigrades are just the march of evolutionary progress.


And sea level rise is NO PROBLEMO. Haven't you heard about Death Valley? The fossil fuel industry has great skills at building pipelines, you know. They will, for a prudent fee, of course, and to protect our national security so that New York, New Orleans and Houston won't flood, turn Death  Valley into LIFE Lake. 

The hotels and pier facilities along LIFE Lake's shores, plus great gas stations strategically and conveniently placed to fuel all those 3,000 hp Evinrude speedboats will bring jobs, prosperity and beauty to America!

Don't you know that the brave fossil fuel industry is expert at digging holes? I mean, they have world class geologists drilling hither and yon, so they know what's down there. If the oceans really are going up, something that MKing and his scientific, prudent friends in the fossil fuel industry will calmly explain is not proven yet (but just in case, they are here, like the government, to help :laugh:), it's simply a matter of relocating the sea water to new lakes the fossil fuel industry can create for Trump and the world! 


They will all have great golf courses too! As the oceans go up, the fossil fuel industry will be happy to pipe sea water to all the below sea level places in the world. Being very scientific and prudent about all these job creating  activities, they realize that additional new holes will have to be dug for new lakes with lots of lakefront property and recreation areas.  ;D  Yes, they normally just drill without making such big holes. But the Clean Coal people are real good at making big holes. So our loyal servants Big Oil, & Gas plus Big Coal will dig big holes in high country like the high desert and pump sea water to them to keep those pesky oceans from getting out of hand. We will all be happy to increase the subsidies for fossil fuel industry activities so they can complete this world saving venture without punitive expenses.  ;D

Yes, I know that sounds wonderful. But it gets BETTER!  There is an ADDED beauty to this great and noble Super project by the fossil fuel industry. All that ground they dig up (after they process the minerals appropriately, of course - they have to run a profitable business, ya know ;))  can be placed over flat land places like Kansas or Florida. They can have contractors build fancy neighborhoods that look down on the surrounding areas with spectacular views! And in places like Michigan and North Dakota, the new mountains can host sky resorts!

As MKing, would say, the future is bright for our loyal servants, the Fossil Fuel Industry.

I'm sure the Tardigrades agree.
