Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal indoctrinates kids — but these climate change doomsday scares are nothing new

Martina MarkotaRebel Contributor

Democrat Party superstar Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been all over the news non-stop. Her Green New Deal has been the source of much ridicule, but it's something we should be taking very seriously. This proposal has gained a disturbing amount of support, and influencers have been encouraging children to get on board.

Young kids have been pushing this insane Green New Deal, which is disturbing enough...except that this isn't new. In fact, this kind of doomsday insanity has been pushed by crazed left-wing ideologues for years.

I don't hate the environment. But we have to acknowledge insanity when we see it.

she really is an over zealous commumnistoid socialist uneducated enviromentalist terrorist suitable only for political cannon fodder. to be shunned & flushed like a used filthy toilet item that she really is????

Not falling for the Ozone BS… I spent 8 weeks in Cape Parry, NWT, in 1981. Both NASA and the NRC (National Research Council) were there studying the Ozone Layer. They sent rockets up on a fairly regular basis to study the Ozone Layer, and the so-called “hole”. The Scientists were willing to share their findings with those of us that worked on that DEW Site. Guess what? They found no issue with the Ozone Layer. Not a problem. Nothing to worry about.. Standard Operational Bullshyte. Like Climate, the Ozone Layer fluctuates over time.. Normal stuff. BTW, those Scientists liked to party… So it is that Global Warming or “Climate Change” is also natural. Not Man Made…. It’s a Scam…

Glad you acknowledge the reality of the solar cycles but I find it a bit “strange” that given historical precedent this is NOT going to affect us in the years to come? Those “observed temperatures are increasing”? Yeah; it would seem so if you deliberately remove dozens of weather stations from the coolest parts of the earth!… (Just ask NOAA and NASA)… Glaciers are growing in Antartica, the polar bears are humping like mad, and sea levels have stopped rising!… The important fact, Dear Ms. Stephenson, is to “stay tuned” as to what happens in the coming years, indeed decades, re longer winters, not what the bullshit artists at the UN are desperately trying to use to justify their wealth-redistribution world view…

The sun’s been getting cooler as the solar cycles weaken (maunder minimum = little ice age). This is not future tense, the last two or three cycle shave been very weak, with the 2014 maximum very weak and both the 2008 and present minima very deep indeed. Further the Earth’s orbital eccentricity is increasing (also a prediction of cooling, and the primary driver of glaciation) yet observed temperatures are increasing.

The global temperature continues to increase – see also, recession of glaciers and rising sea levels. The amount of solar energy seems to be decreasing. What’s causing the disparity?

You must be having troubles with your “memory banks” Ms. Stephenson to keep pushing that “I want to see a plausible natural mechanism that would explain it.” line… I have lost count of the number of us Rebel posters who have suggested that you consider the natural effects caused by that shiny bright thing in the sky called The Sun…. It’s heading into another “quiet sun” cycle for the next 11 years or so and maybe the following one also…. That means colder winters and shorter summers, contra the “97 per cent” B.S. … Or have you “studiously ignored” the winter weather reports across North America so far?

We’d welcome debate, if those that disagree with the hypothesis of anthropogenci climate change (etc) would bring scientific debate to the table.

The reality is, that nobody seems to be able to find a reasonable explanation for the warming trend that isn’t because of increased atmospheric heat retention from higher GHG levels. The natural cycles predict a slight and ongoing cooling, which would eventually lead to a new glaciated period, but that’s’ reversed and there’s no obvious answer why but industrial activity.

I don’t care about the 97% concensus. I want to see a plausible natural mechanism that would explain it. Nobody can provide one. Until they do, industrial activity, while not a perfect explanation, remains the best one.

‘Man Made Global Warming’ is a hoax and warmists like Andrew cannot provide indisputable proof to the contrary. In fact, while embracing the lie of a 97% consensus of Scientists, the warmists pronounce that ‘no further debate is needed or wanted’ and that the science is settled’ which are two of the most anti-science statements that have come down the pipe in years.
The fact that EVITA supports this lunatic claim is not surprising. After all, she is the product of an educational system that gives out awards for attendance, never says ‘no’ to students. praises their ‘brilliance’ for their banalities, rewards the parroting back of green dogma, never confronts their beliefs by demanding proof and does not promote critical thinking in any form. So we shouldn’t be surprised by EVITA’s mindless support of the MMGW lie.

Yea, you just keep believing that, Andrew. I guess you have to tell yourself something otherwise you would have to admit that they all were scams. "

I will continue believing it, because it’s objectively true. The Montreal Protocol banning most halocarbons (which destroy the ozone layer) stands out as one of the most successful environmental initiatives ever. 30 years later, CFC levels are declining – they’re very persistent – and the ozone hole, although still present, is starting to shrink.

Acid rain is a product of atmospheric sulphur emitted by burning coal and sour oil based fuels. A combination of sulphur taxes and regulation (sound familiar?) have dramatically reduced sulphur emissions – by requiring things like scrubbers on coal plants and tighter limits on sulphur in fuel, something ongoing to today (see, Bunker fuel regulations – bad news for heavy sour oil such as the oil sands, but great for the planet).

The “hysteria” (sexist term, by the way. Nobody’s uterus is actually raging) didn’t just go away because nothing happened. In both cases, we fixed the problem. The same thing is now happening with carbon, and like sulphur and CFCs i have o doubt that half a century from now, we’ll be well on the way to solving that problem as well.

Andrew said, “It’s almost like banning CFCs and dramatically reducing sulphur emissions fixed two of those …”

Yea, you just keep believing that, Andrew. I guess you have to tell yourself something otherwise you would have to admit that they all were scams.

Gee Ms. Stephenson… I do hope “they” also noticed the coldest winter in Vancouver since 1971; the coldest winter on record in Calgary; the delay of spring in Victoria by about six weeks so far, and the most snow every recorded at Victoria’s International Airport?…

“The latest is the Global Warming scam, renamed Climate Change.
Previous to that the ozone holes and acid rain.
And before that we were to all die in an ice age.
"

It’s almost like banning CFCs and dramatically reducing sulphur emissions fixed two of those, and as for the ice age? Turns out they noticed some unknown phenomenon turned around the cooling trend that had been observed up until the mid-20th century.

The left wing climate change scam is about getting rid of the capitalist free market system and replacing it with Marxism, under the guise of environmentalism. The green deal should be proof of that for even the most stupid Joe citizen.

The climate Henny Penny’s of the world have been running around clucking for decades.

The latest is the Global Warming scam, renamed Climate Change.

Just ignore the idiots.
