Posted on 05/17/2019 6:48:03 AM PDT by Twotone
Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf is touting a new Climate Action Plan, and recently joined the U.S. Climate Alliance, a coalition of 24 states committed to implementing policies that support the Paris Agreement which the Trump administration rejected.
According to the governor, states like Pennsylvania must take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect our communities, economies, infrastructures, and environments from the risks of a warming climate.
The best way to protect our economy and infrastructure? Raising taxes, increasing regulation, and increasing spending, Governor Wolf argues.
His plan, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 80 percent by 2050, includes 15 actions each of which is an attack on Pennsylvanias economy.
For example, incentivizing renewable energy is code for more taxpayer subsidies, and maintaining current nuclear generation levels means bailing out nuclear plants and placing a cap-and-trade carbon tax on energy producers.
But wait: theres more. Wolfs plan also lectures Pennsylvanians about reducing their personal vehicle mileage and calls for increasing public transportation, which is already heavily subsidized by drivers.
Most concerning, the plan offers no estimates of costs, which would surely run into the millions if not billions of dollars.

I think I will go drive my truck around my Texas pastures this afternoon, just to do my part to offset this idiot’s actions.
:: the risks of a warming climate ::
Yes, we will all burn up in that extra 1.8 degrees celcius. Why, average summer high-temps will be around 85F, which is ^literally^ almost Hell!
The climate change crowd is just another group that is actually pushing for a UN controlled world governance.
If the weather that we’re having in California lately is due to global warming/climate change/hoax then I’ll take it. Let it snow,let it snow,let it snow.
incentivizing renewable energy is code for more taxpayer subsidies, and maintaining current nuclear generation levels means bailing out nuclear plants and placing a cap-and-trade carbon tax on energy producers.
The climate crowd, so-called, is just a bunch of money-grubbing scientists and anti-social misfits.
NOAA corrects the temperatures to get the trends that back up their CO2 caused global warming silliness.
This NOAA graph shows that the liars adjust temperatures DOWN in the 1930's to show the temperatures were COOLER than what the actual temperature measurements showed. They do this with the result that ADJUSTED temperatures trend with CO2 concentration changes!
If you are a betting person, wait for the NOAA liars to adjust the 2018-2019 record LOW temperatures to show the northern hemisphere really wasn't as cold as the press reported.
The US gubermint thinks people are stupid enough to believe their lies. Sadly, about 1/2 do believe most everything they are told.
Is anyone else not able to link to any “https://spectator.org" article or website?
Google has been deliberately blocking American Spectator. I was trying to find an article by title, & even though I had the title perfect, everything else under the sun came up EXCEPT the article I wanted.
When are the R’s going to do something about the banishment of conservative voices from social media?!
Thanks. And MS Edge is apparently also blocking it, as I got ‘could not connect’ from it today as well. I’ll have to try Mozzilla.
mozzila still permits it to come up
