The Democrat Party’s “New Green Deal” would cost up to $94.4 trillion, or over $600,000 per household in the United States, according to a study by the American Action Forum.
The New Green Deal, proposed by freshman lawmaker and climate alarmist, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), would work towards the elimination of CO2 from our atmosphere.
Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D–N.Y.) introduced the House resolution in February. The resolution, as Reason‘s Ron Bailey reported, cites climate change concerns as justification for a plan that would remake the U.S. economy over the next ten years.
The resolution’s aims include “overhauling transportation systems in the United States to eliminate pollution and 19 greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector as much as is technologically feasible.”
Democrat presidential candidates have been using doomsday scenarios to scare congregants of the church of climate change into voting for them. In their first two debates going into the primary, the candidates warned that made human-made climate change is the most important issue of our time.
During his interview with Talouselämä magazine, Taalas called for a calm and rational approach to the climate debate and disagreed with those who are promoting end-of-the-world scenarios.
NASA is now declaring that the increase in CO2 in our atmosphere is actually helping to green the planet, and calling the New Green Deal a death cult that will destroy the world’s economy.
Climate News reports – In direct contradiction to the scare stories about carbon dioxide being relentlessly pushed by the climate change alarmists, a scientific study published in Nature Climate Change and highlighted by NASA, reveals that over the last three decades, rising carbon dioxide levels are having a tremendously positive impact on the re-greening of planet Earth. Some regions are experiencing over a 50% increase in plant life.
Green leaves use energy from sunlight through photosynthesis to chemically combine carbon dioxide drawn in from the air with water and nutrients tapped from the ground to produce sugars, which are the main source of food, fiber, and fuel for life on Earth. Studies have shown that increased concentrations of carbon dioxide increase photosynthesis, spurring plant growth.
Results showed that carbon dioxide fertilization explains 70 percent of the greening effect, said co-author Ranga Myneni, a professor in the Department of Earth and Environment at Boston University.
The powerful video, “Rising CO2 levels greening Earth” was released by NASA:
The study, entitled, “Greening of the Earth and its drivers,” used satellite data to track and map the expansion of green plant growth across the globe from 1982 – 2015. Published in 2016, the study found that rising atmospheric carbon dioxide causes “fertilization” of plant life, resulting in a remarkable acceleration of increased “greening” across every Earth continent. As the study abstract explains:
We show a persistent and widespread increase of growing season integrated LAI (greening) over 25% to 50% of the global vegetated area… Factorial simulations with multiple global ecosystem models suggest that CO2 fertilization effects explain 70% of the observed greening trend…
In other words, the planet is getting greener, and we have rising CO2 levels to thank for it, since rising CO2 accounts for about 70% of the increase in planet-wide greening, according to scientists. The more CO2 we release into the atmosphere, the more nutrients are available for plants, and the more rapidly the Earth is re-greened.
The following compilation map shows which land masses have experienced expanded greening since 1982. As the legend explains, the light green areas represent a 25% increase in green plants, and the dark green areas represent a 50% or greater increase:
This mini-documentary explains how eliminating carbon dioxide would wipe out the planet.
There are virtually no Democrats who recognize that carbon dioxide is the “miracle molecule” for plant life. “Green New Deal” proponents like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — who is scientifically and economically illiterate — think that carbon dioxide must be eliminated in order to save the planet. In fact, she warns that Earth only has 12 years to go before all life ceases to exist unless humans stop burning fossil fuels.
Not surprisingly, she has it all wrong: It’s the burning of fossil fuels that are releasing beneficial CO2 into the atmosphere, causing the global greening that NASA has already confirmed (see above). If humans stop burning fossil fuels, the result would decrease atmospheric CO2, resulting in plants starving to death from lack of CO2.
This would, of course, lead to the mass global die-off of trees, grasslands, food crops, and rainforests. The “Green New Deal,” in other words, would actually result in the mass killing of plant life across the entire planet. If the world were to follow the demands of Ocasio-Cortez, the world’s ecosystems would collapse, resulting in mass death of plants, animals, and humans.
Climate News writes: The Green New Deal Is A Death Cult
People like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are not the saviors of the planet, it turns out: They are the death merchants who threaten to destroy all life as we know it. Carbon dioxide isn’t a threat to planet Earth, but people like Ocasio-Cortez surely are. If anything should be eliminated from the atmosphere, it’s the hot air coming from the mouths of the climate alarmists who are spewing their death cult quackery that would devastate our planet if deployed.
If you really want to “green” the planet, stop the climate change lunatics like Ocasio-Cortez whose proposals would quite literally murder nearly all life on planet Earth.
More carbon dioxide = more green plants
What do you think? Do you think Americans should buy into the global
warming, cooling, climate change crisis, or is it simply a misguided scheme to take control of every aspect of our lives?
