Left-Wing Writer Defends Climate Hypocrisy

A left-wing writer at The New Republic says it’s totes OK for Al Gore and Leo di Caprio to enjoy lavish, hydrocarbon-fueled lifestyles (multiple mansions, mega yachts, private jets, fleets of SUV’s for their entourages). “The claim that Gore and his ilk are hypocrites is a classic conservative attack strategy of redirection (because it ignores the core issue of climate change) and of poisoning the well (because it attempts to discredit the message by discrediting the messenger).

By painting criticism of climate hypocrites as nothing more than a smear campaign from “the right wing,” ahe is, of course, completely missing the point, which is that why should we believe Al Gore and Leo di Caprio believe that CO2 is going to burn up the Earth when they don’t act like their own emissions are a problem. Imagine a televangelist preaching that alcohol, homosexuality, and gambling were the worst of sins that would surely cause your soul to burn, burn, burn in the fires of Hell. Now, imagine what you would think if he were caught stumbling drunk out of a casino at three in the morning with a male prostitute on each arm. You would kind of think maybe he didn’t believe in that stuff he was preaching, wouldn’t you?

She also makes the laughable claim that Al Gore, Leo Di Caprio and the other hypocrites “aren’t asking you to change your lifestyle.” Which is bullsh-t. They are demanding that people give up automobiles, pay exorbitant rates for electricity, give up meat, give up household pets, limit the number of children, and, of course, pay massively higher taxes so that Governments can fight the phantom menace of climate change.

Karma comes for Fauxcahontas

Elizabeth Warren’s opponent, Shiva Ayyadurai, says with a smile “Only a real Indian can defeat the fake Indian”. He sent Warren a “23andMe” DNA home-testing kit. Which she refused.

He also published the result of his test. Though obviously Asian Indian, he happens to test as 0.1% Native American.

I don’t know what this guy’s chances are in the leftie state of Massachusetts, but he’s pleasant and knows how to use laughter to reach people.

In fairness to Warren: she claims to be 1/32 Native American on family history, so she might easily test as 3% or more of Native American, beating Ayyadurai. But that’s beside the point. The point is: SHE made it all relevant. The blue-eyed, chalky-white, blonde Warren checked “Native American” on her Harvard University job application – and has given only faux-apologizes, at best, for her absurd claim.

And she’s fake in other ways – like being a multi-millionaire who works for Wall Street’s interests while having claimed to be the creator of Occupy Wall Street, on the barricades with the working class – but enough for today.

Environmental Extremists Hate Kittens and Puppies Too

Gaia does not approve of Doggos and Kittehs.

Can pets be part of a sustainable future?

The short, if unpopular, answer is probably not. Two German Shepherds use more resources just for their annual food needs than the average Bangladeshi uses each year in total. And while pet owners may disagree that Bangladeshis have more right to exist than their precious Schnookums, the truth is that pets serve little more societal purpose than keeping us company in an increasingly individualistic and socially isolated consumer society.

And this isn’t an isolated Guardian whackjob making this argument. A UCLA study reached essentially the same conclusion.

And the answer to this “problem” is… spoiler alert… Big Socialist Government.

Governments could facilitate this by strengthening the pet licensing system, for example, creating a very steep tax on pets (along with pet products and pet food) and tripling that tax for pets that aren’t spayed or neutered (so that only breeders would choose not to fix their pets).

At the same time, marketing of pets and pet products should be tightly regulated (or banned outright), and polluting veterinarian services like chemotherapy should be reserved only for service animals.

And then, outlaw pet ownership entirely. Make cats and dogs community property, to be shared by everyone and allocated by the Government according to fairness and sustainability.

Reserving a play date with your favorite Golden Retriever once a week would reduce pet ownership – and the resulting economic and environmental costs – dramatically as people felt comfortable occasionally playing with a shared pet instead of owning one.

Environmentalist Virtue Signaling Kills Third World Children

No cost is too high to meet Eurotopia’s insatiable demand for green virtue-signaling. Forests are being devastated to provide wood to burn for power in place of coal of nuclear for no logical reason. (And as an added bonus, burning wood to make electricity releases even more CO2 into the atmosphere than the technologies it replaces.)

The latest virtue signaling fad to sweep Europe is to outlaw cars and trucks that are fueld by gasoline and diesel fuels. Sweden and France have already passed laws to phase out non-electric vehicles by 2040, and there is a movement for other countries to follow suit. It is an article of faith on the environmental left that electric cars are non-polluting and will save the world from ManBearPig.

The batteries to power Eurotopia’s new fleets of electric vehicles will require staggering amounts of rare Earth metals as well as lithium and cobalt. The extraction of these elements from the Earth is so environmentally devastating that no advanced western country would ever allow it to take place on their soil. The Eurotopian greens are only too happy, however, to shift the burden to places like Communist China and Africa, where environmental protections are non-existent and the people doing the hard labor are so backward and deplorable they probably use the wrong gender pronouns. So, who cares what happens to them?

By the way, as an added bonus, those electric Tesla’s and Volvo’s also promote third world child slavery.

Dorsen, just eight, is one of 40,000 children working daily in the mines of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The terrible price they will pay for our clean air is ruined health and a likely early death.

Goldman Sachs, the merchant bank, calls cobalt ‘the new gasoline’ but there are no signs of new wealth in the DRC, where the children haul the rocks brought up from tunnels dug by hand.

No one knows quite how many children have died mining cobalt in the Katanga region in the south-east of the country. The UN estimates 80 a year, but many more deaths go unregistered, with the bodies buried in the rubble of collapsed tunnels. Others survive but with chronic diseases which destroy their young lives. Girls as young as ten in the mines are subjected to sexual attacks and many become pregnant.

Yeah, but isn’t it worth it for the smug sense of superiority leftists get from plugging their Teslas and Nissan Leaf’s into the power-up station? It totally is, isn’t it?
