Andrea Mitchell: Storms Show U.S. Needs To Go It Alone If Necessary On Climate Change
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 02/04/2013 12:21:31 PM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Andrea Mitchell isn't about to let a good hurricane go to waste in her push for economy-wrecking climate change regulations.

On her MSNBC show today, Andrea Mitchell claimed that recent weather events including Superstorm Sandy have "taught us if nothing else, that we have a real climate problem and that we have to deal with this here even if the rest of the world isn't going to deal with it in China and elsewhere."

So what if China doesn’t want to wreck its economy? That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t wreck ours! Ping to Today show list.

Good grief! Seldom have I seen more confident ignorance. Yes, the climate is changing. No, we don’t know what causes it, and even if so, it is not with the power of the USA to stop countries like China from doing what they want.

Mark, I marvel once again at your ability to watch this crap without throwing a brick through your TV screen.

You're a better man than I...

Andrea, how about we build a very tall fence to keep climate change from other countries out?

My ninth grader’s science teacher still shows the Al Gore “Inconvenient Truth” movie. I butted heads with this teacher several years ago when my current college senior was in his high school class. I didn’t bother this time. I just vomit, and pray for Jesus to come.

As I’ve explained, I protect my TV from myself with sturdy chicken-wire fencing, just like the stage at the country music bar where the Blues Brothers performed ;-)

Especially along our southern border, to keep out the Mexi-cains.........

What a maroon.

2012 US coal consumption - 25 year low (thanks shale gas) of about 0.875 Billion tons.

2012 World Coal consumption including the US BUT NOT INCLUDING CHINA about 4.2 billion tons.

2012 CHINA coal consumption about 3.8 billion tons and rising. It was 2.4 billion tons in 2005.

The current trends makes it likely China alone will consume about 4.0 to 4.1 billion tons in 2013 - the same as the rest of the world.

The US estimate for 2013 coal consumption is 0.84 billion tons.

Andrea should go it alone with her thoughts and opinions, but leave the rest of us alone.

Andrea Mitchell wouldn’t even know there were storms if they didn’t occasionally hit the east coast.

Andrea is an idiot, even the UN Climate Panel is now admitting that there hasn’t been any measurable global warming for 16 years and that they now believe the sun’s output may be responsible for temperature variations on earth (like who didn’t see that coming). Perhaps Andrea should also talk with Al Gore who is now rolling in Arab oil money and lives in a seaside mansion that according to the dire warnings in his movie should by now be under water.

Superstorm Sandy!!!

Can we please stop using the media-created code word 'Superstorm' when describing Hurricane Sandy? That's their jumping-off point to call for destructive regulation to 'control' the non-problem of the Great Socialist Climate Hoax, with the real purpose of controlling *us*.

Andrea’s sense of importance is way out of proportion to reality.

So, if China and its huge population do nothing, then the US and its smaller population must self-destruct because the problem is simply too important. Well, if China does nothing, the problem won’t be affected by the US destroying its economic stability. The climate will remain unaltered but people in the US will suffer tremendously.

Of course, if the problem really is that serious, Andrea may just have to go it alone and save the climate herself. Save the world, Andrea.

For promoting this clear scam by the globalists, scum like Mitchell need to be fed to polar bears ... if the bears would even have such filth for dinner.

Heinlein was a realist. Essential in a man who wrote fantasy, which is why his made-up worlds are easier to believe in than the post-modernist fiction on the NYT best-seller list.

"Andrea should go it alone with her thoughts and opinions "

You are giving her far too much credit for having thoughts of her own. It's obvious that her brain is a vacant as her prattle. She is simply mouthing the propaganda of her dying 'news' room. Ignore them.

Central control over oil use and cost is centralizing the means of production and use of personal property.

You can live in the subrubs, you just can’t afford to drive into work. You can have a gas powered car, you just can’t afford to drive it. You can have a three bedroom house, you just can afford to heat it. Better to take a one bedroom in the city projects on the bus line.

In addition it gives the richie riches a cut of all oil use in their carbon trading scam and gives the UN taxation power to redistribute wealth from the high energy use nations (the west) to poor nations.

That is why the scam is so important to Andrea and her globalist little fascist pals.
