Yep, another leftist wing nut has come loose. According to Dave Lindorff, (veteran, Columbia graduate, and ardent Gore groupie) global warming will shrink the red states and force us negligent right wingers who live here to flock to the blue region and into the arms of those who, “told us so”.
Guess he missed the ice storm.
Lindorff is quite Hitler-esque in how he plans on welcoming the hapless, right-wing victims of their man-made (snicker) disaster who come crawling to the left for help:
The important thing is that we, on the higher ground both actually and
figuratively, need to remember that, when they begin their historic
migration from their doomed regions, we not give them the keys to the
city. They certainly should be offered assistance in their time of
need, but we need to keep a firm grip on our political systems, making
sure that these guilty throngs who allowed the world to go to hell are
gerrymandered into political impotence in their new homes.
There will be much work to be done to help the earth and its
residents—human and non-human—survive this man-made catastrophe, and we
can’t have these future refugee troglodytes, should their personal
disasters still fail to make them recognize reality, mucking things up
It should be considered acceptable, in this stifling new world, to say, “Shut up. We told you this would happen.”
Now this is compassion liberal style: “guilty throngs” who “allowed the world to go to hell” will be “future refugee troglodytes”. Auschwitz comes to mind. Of course the only ice to be found will be in the blue state region so Siberia would be more apropos. And that would make Lindorff more like…Lenin?
But for all his delusions, Lindorff managed to get one thing right: A “new world” run by flaming liberals would be stifling.
Need convincing? This from Britan’s Environment Agency. Required reading for global warming acolytes like Lindorff.
1 Dramatically improve the energy efficiency of electrical goods
2 Religious leaders to make the environment a priority for their followers
3 Encourage the widespread use of solar power throughout the world
4 Secure a meaningful post-Kyoto treaty on reducing the emissions that contribute to global warming
5 Encourage households to generate much more of their own power
6 Introduce tax incentives to “buy green”
7 Tackle the rapid growth in aviation emissions
8 Wean ourselves off dependency on petroleum
9 Encourage individuals to buy less non-essential “stuff ”
10 Dramatically improve public transport
11 Aim for a “zero waste” culture
12 Install “smart energy” meters in all homes
13 Introduce a measure of economic success that includes the environment
14 Fully harness Britain’s huge potential for generating renewable energy
15 Seek alternative, less damaging sources for biofuels
16 Bury carbon dioxide from power stations underground
17 Encourage hydrogen fuel cell technology in cars
18 Implement government policies to control global population growth
19 Reach international agreement on preserving rainforests
20 Create better incentives to improve energy efficiency in the home
Zero waste culture? Good thing cork is considered green-friendly.
Implement government policies to control global population growth?? And leave Angelina Jolie with no babies to adopt? And just pondering how the government would implement population growth policies sends shivers up my spine. China and India have been giving the whole population control thing a whirl. It’s called genocide. But hey, if it means a greener, cleaner evironment then why not. After all, it’s about the planet, Stupid, not people.
Global warming is a liberal’s dream. Big, intrusive government monitoring how we flush and reproduce. Oh, and taxing the non-compliant.
But there is a silver lining to Lindorff’s absurd claims that the climate is somehow partisan. If the red states are doomed to destruction, I’m banking on a mass exodus of liberals from my still very redish state. If his postulations have even half the shelf life that other global warming theories have had, my grandkids could live in a lib-free red state.
Now that’s what I call controlling population growth.
