Let us contemplate, as the Biden administration rushes to cripple the American economy with brute-force carbon reduction measures as part of its “green”/global warming agenda, that nothing America does will make one whit’s worth of difference to global temperature increases if the rest of the world doesn’t do the same.

China has only promised to stop increasing emissions by 2030, and if you believe this promise, I suggest you ponder China’s reported COVID-19 stats:

A nation with 18% of the world’s population, the place where this bug first emerged, has only had 0.17% of the world’s COVID deaths?

Say it with me: “Liar, liar, pants on fire.”

Can the administration be this naive regarding decarbonization? Can they not recognize that the radical transformation and massive (MASSIVE) cost of their brute-force zero-carbon goal (especially with nuclear power removed from the equation) will be utterly pointless in the face of nations like China, Brazil, India, Russia, South Africa, and others not doing the same?

Hardly. Nothing I’ve offered here is deep-revelation. This isn’t really about the climate. It’s about reordering the economy and the structure of the nation, to put Washington in firmer control of everything. It’s not according-to-Hoyle socialism, but it sure rhymes with it, and they’re doing it because they are obsessed with power and control, especially of an ornery and recalcitrant populace. They, more than anything else, want (nay, demand) to be obeyed, and that is their true motivator.

As for the “useful idiots” who support this wholly illogical approach to global warming remediation? They fall into David Mamet’s definition of socialism: “the abdication of responsibility.” Since their team is proposing the measures, they defend them, with arrogance, condescension, and insults, and don’t bother thinking through the realities I’ve covered here.

They’re all liars, and they don’t even care that we know they are.
