U.S. Centaur–oops, sorry, that should be “Senator”–Kirsten Gillibrand, New York Democrat who wants to be president, says she’s got a $10 trillion plan to Save The Planet From Climbit Change (https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/07/25/kirsten-gillibrand-unveils-10-trillion-climate-change-plan/).
See, we gotta have “zero-carbon electricity in a decade” because Climbit Change is “the most serious threat to humanity today.” I thought the most serious threat to humanity today was white men. I know some other Democrat said that.
And the centerpiece of Gillibrand’s, er, plan is… wait for it… [trumpet fanfare] “enact the Green New Deal!”
Brilliant! Wipe out fossil fuels, the internal combustion engine (except for Important People’s limousines), air travel (except for Important People’s private jets), beef (except for Important People’s $10,000-a-plate banquets for Social Justice), and reduce the overall standard of living to that in which 12th-century Scottish peasants luxuriated.
If you’re even thinking about voting for a Democrat, any Democrat–get help now.
