Many of you are aware of the major winter storm that knocked out power to millions in Texas. While some say that global warming experts were too busy predicting warmer winters for Texas to see the snow, others like Senator Chuck Schumer are blaming the power outage on the state’s failure to address climate change. While some say the Green New Deal needs to be more actively pursued, the governor of Texas is warning that this is what the entire country will go through if we accept the Green New Deal.
Tom DeWeese is the president of American Policy Center. He’s one of the nation’s leading advocates of individual liberty, free enterprise, private property rights, personal privacy, back-to-basics education and American sovereignty and independence, and protecting our Constitutionally-guaranteed rights. Tom is author of Sustainable: The War on Free Enterprise, Private Property and Individuals and Erase, a political novel.
Chuck Schumer communicated that Texas thought they could ‘go it alone’ while building a system that ignored climate change. Tom called that ‘incredible spin’ because Texas has put a large amount of their energy on the grid through solar and wind power which is what the Green New Deal calls for. It’s been proven time and again that these two power sources do not provide enough energy to rely completely upon them alone. With wind turbines frozen and solar panels covered in snow, they couldn’t provide the needed energy.
President Biden has the U.S. back in the Paris Climate Accord. Jim provided audio of climate czar John Kerry as he addressed the Munich Security Conference and told them that largely because of President Trump, 3 of the 12 years that scientists said the earth had left to mitigate this problem, were wasted. According to Tom, Kerry’s comments basically amounted to using the tactic of fear via climate change for increasing government control.
Tom then had listeners consider the Green New Deal that’s the driving force behind what’s called, Agenda 2030. He noted that this deal has 4 pillars. The first pillar is its economic bill of rights that guarantees full employment, guaranteeing a living wage, medical care for all, tuition free education, and affordable housing.
Tom then told the audience, ‘What does any of that have to do with protecting the environment? Nothing. It is an economic control from the top and the word we used to use was, communism.’
