Climate alarmists have been warning of dire consequences since the 1970s, first from global cooling, then global warming. Suffice it to say, little has changed under the all-encompassing “climate change” characterization of today.
A new report released Friday by the Trump administration warns of dire consequences — environmentally and economically — for the United States within the next 100 years, according to The New York Times. It it’s analysis, the newspaper stated “if significant steps are not taken to rein in global warming, the damage will knock as much as 10 percent off the size of the American economy by century’s end.”
“When most Americans are tucking into turkey leftovers and waiting in line for Black Friday sales the government has released a huge report on the impact of climate change, and the findings are dire — not just for our health and our environment the way you expect it to be, but also for our economy,” MSNBC’s Ali Velshi breathlessly reported.
NBC News correspondent Tom Costello cites recent events to say that the report shows “there is clear and compelling evidence that the temperature is rising fast and that humans are responsible for it.”
And President Trump is not only being criticized for releasing a report issued every four years by 13 federal agencies over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, but for his skepticism.
In fact, two days before the report was released, the president tweeted:
Velshi trotted out Jake Levine, a climate attorney and former Obama aide, to rip the president for the release date and for his skepticism.
“President Trump is obviously afraid of what his administration is reporting,” Levine hypothesized, right on cue. “It’s contrary to his agenda, it’s contrary to the interests that support this president.”
“And, you know, it’s really, frankly, quite shameful, I think, for a president who just came out to California and visited the devastation in Paradise, California, in Malibu,” he continued. “Where towns have literally been just wiped off the map as a result of the extreme weather that we’re seeing from climate change.”
A bold declaration given that fires have been sweeping through canyons in the Santa Monica Mountains since the dawn of man.
“So, you know, this is, unfortunately, par for the course for this President,” concludes Levine. “That he would try to bury this news and deny it. I think probably he’s doing it because he feels that it will continue to rev up his base and stoke his supporters.”
The new report was right up the alley of climate alarmist and newly elected socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who took to Twitter on Friday to go a step further than The Times, warning that people are going to die — in the process, she calls for the dreaded congressional committee to save the world.
“People are going to die if we don’t start addressing climate change ASAP,” the New York Democrat tweeted. “It’s not enough to think it’s ‘important.’ We must make it urgent.”
People are going to die if we don’t start addressing climate change ASAP.
It’s not enough to think it’s “important.” We must make it urgent.
That’s why we need a Select Committee on a Green New Deal, & why fossil fuel-funded officials shouldn’t be writing climate change policy. https://t.co/bn6NloGlaY

And House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who will soon regain her speaker’s gavel, is apparently listening — elections have consequences, folks:
The climate crisis threatens both our communities & our economy. While @realDonaldTrump ignores his own admin’s report, House Dems are pushing for action w/ select committee on #ClimateChange. We can create millions of good-paying jobs w/ bold, green infrastructure investments!

All of which proves, as noted by Voice of America host Bill Mitchell, who reminds us this report is a computer model, “This is not science. This is politics.”

It's pretty cold where I live right now. November was more like a typical December. Are the carbon taxes going to make it warmer or colder, or are the elite just buying temperate islands for themselves with the money?

I can read between the lines it says, "Pay the UN Global Taxes".
Using a Picture from the CA campfire, they're playing the Democrats song of their people……………Never let a Tragedy go to waste………………
