Sanders preferred ultra-low temperatures of just 60 degrees F ... In addition to blasting the air conditioning during warmer weather, according to the book, Sanders also much preferred taking trips on board private jets — a surprising revelation about a Congressman who has consistently called for action on climate change and more recently endorsed the Green New Deal.
Flying Private: “Charter flights were a revelation to him,” Dovere wrote in the book, as quoted by Fox News. “He would always be a little embarrassed pulling into the private terminals, but boy, did he get a kick out of not worrying about being late for a flight that couldn’t take off without him.”
"They fully intend for the federal government to intervene, on a perpetuated emergency basis, into virtually every aspect of the American economy."
Rep. AOC: We are out of time and excuses. Our country is in crisis and, to address it, we will have to mobilize our social and economic resources on a massive scale...we have to start by calling this moment what it is, a national emergency."
Sen. Bernie Sanders: "Climate change is a national emergency."
Steve Milloy: "None of what the Joe Biden green team has in store will improve the environment; it will only make your life poorer and harder."
"A green push is a political agenda. It’s not about controlling the climate. It’s about controlling you. You can see this for yourself in the prescriptive lifestyle climate activists demand: Don’t eat meat. You don’t need a car. Avoid air conditioning. Wash in cold water. Dry your clothes on a clothesline. As Al Gore asked at the end of his 2007 movie, “An Inconvenient Truth,” “Are you ready to change the way you live?” While you’re changing the way you live, China, India, and soon Africa will be emitting greenhouse gases like there’s no tomorrow to raise their national standards of living."
"A Biden administration would move to ban fracking, the oil production technology that has liberated Americans and our gas prices from the shackles of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, or OPEC, cartel. In no time, American drivers would be facing European-style gas prices and sweating every time Iran, Russia, or Saudi Arabia moved to threaten the global oil supply."
The New York Times recently ran an opinion column commanding readers to “Stop Using Toilet Paper.” It advocated for using something reusable or upgrading your toilet so it shoots streams of targeted water. It seems nothing environmental extremists do can be too intrusive.
"In order to get this nomination without a fight, [Biden] had to cede climate and energy over to the Bernie Sanders/AOC wing – and people like AOC are actually writing all of this. Biden is merely a figurehead when it comes to this," he tells OneNewsNow.
"It's not like [Democrats are saying] 'Bernie Sanders didn't win, so we're going to get a more rational climate policy.' No – Biden has essentially ceded his control over this policy to that extremist climate emergency wing of the Democrats."
Germany is failing to meet its climate goals of reducing carbon-dioxide emissions even after spending over $580 billion by 2025 to overhaul its energy systems. Germany’s emissions miss should be a “wake-up call” for governments everywhere.
Today, German households pay almost 50% more for electricity than they did in 2006 as power prices in Germany are now among the highest in Europe. Much of that increase in electricity cost is the Renewable Surcharge that has increased over the same period by 770%. Germany has learned that clean energy is not energy in totality as wind and solar only provide renewable electricity, and more accurately its only intermittent electricity at best. Renewables have also been the primary driver behind the high costs of electricity for residents of Australia and California.
“Rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement … on Day One.” Even many on the left agree that the Paris Climate Agreement does little to slow climate change. It is a symbolic commitment by the rest of the world to reduce emissions, while most of the burden falls on the United States. Our economy has reduced emissions anyway on its own, thanks to the shift to natural gas and the advent of fracking technology, which the left hates and wants to phase out over time.
