Yang: The Rainman Cometh

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang explained on Wednesday why he supports combating climate change by investing heavily in unproven technological advancements like cloud seeding.

Cloud seeding is a technology that has been around for years, but its ability to combat climate change is more speculative. The practice involves spraying chemicals into the atmosphere to make it rain or snow, a practice that could help with extreme drought.

Yang said on Wednesday that “all solutions have to be on the table.”

“We’re here together because we can this is a crisis,” Yang said. “If you were attacking on one side, you should be researching various alternatives on the other. That, to me, is just responsible management and responsible leadership.”

Yang’s website says that he, as president, would “invest in any idea that has the potential to reverse the damage done to the environment.”

Yin-Yang-Yung, this guy is a fruitcake. No experience and running a purely vanity campaign. Cripes, what a joke!

Klobuchar:

Sen. Amy Klobuchar said said that one way to get people to use less energy is to send out electric bills with a neighborhood ranking because it comes with a sense of competitive accomplishment.

I already get those where I live. And I have to laugh at them as I am always way below the average. But then I live in the dark. A reverse take on “Keeping up with the Joneses”?

Spectacularly awful idea—some people have five kids, etc. etc. What we don’t need right now in America is more competition, unless it’s how fast can we build our own factories to make the things we need to transition.

Biden:

“I’ve never made that choice. My whole career. Simple. I mean, look, I got involved back in 1986. I introduced a climate change plan that was said to be a game changer. I’ve been involved in everything from making sure we go with back in the ’90s, everything I’ve done has been done to take on the polluters and take on those who are, in fact, decimating our environment. I mean, it’s been my career.”

I would say partially true.

Was Joe Biden a climate change pioneer in Congress? History says yes

“It’s significant insofar as Biden has been more or less on top of the issue since the mid ’80s. But let’s not stretch the intent of the bill and suggest that this was a comprehensive plan for reducing emissions or adapting to the consequences of climatic change,” he said. “It was a plan to make a plan. Which, of course, neither Reagan nor Bush ultimately did.”

in fact, history says no.

WindDancer13

Well, he did write a bill, and it did pass, and it was 1986. The fact that the bill didn’t do anything is the bigger part of the picture. Besides, he was just trying to copy Gore who was on global warming (cc of that era) way ahead of him, along with others.
