“Climate campaigners demand ever-greater government control over energy markets, resources, and infrastructure.

Another yr, another world climate conference, where world leaders fly their private jets to get together and pat each other on the back.
Remember in Y 2019 when John Kerry was mocked for taking a private jet to accept a climate change leadership award in Iceland. He defended the private jet as a necessary part of the job.
“If you offset your carbon, it’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle,” Mr. Kerry claimed.
“I negotiated the Paris Accords for the United States. I’ve been involved in this fight for years. I negotiated with President Xi to bring President Xi to the table so we could get Paris,” he added. Meaning, do not question me; I’m a very important man.“
As it turns out, the meeting are not about climate change according to former United Nations climate official Ottmar Edenhofer.
“One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole,” said Mr. Edenhofer, who co-chaired the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change working group on Mitigation of Climate Change from Ys 2008 to 2015.

And embedded in the $3.5-T Biden spending plan referred to as “human infrastructure” now pending in the Senate is a building-block of the green new deal, according to Senator Ed Markey (D-Mass)
“Without question, the green new deal is in the DNA of this green-budget resolution,” Senator Markey, chair of the Senate Climate Change Task Force said in August. “All of the things that are in, we talked about in the green new deal.”
Senator Markey is a big fan of the green new deal, a socialist’s wish-list that was the brainchild of Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)
In the “green” side of the bill is $30-B for “tree equity” to plant saplings; on the social side is $25-M for “anti-discrimination and bias training“; on the financial side is nearly $79-B to beef up the IRS’s enforcement efforts.
We are living with what Democrats want, that includes:

The “noble cause” in this case is addressing a VirusCasedemic, giving Democrats the excuse and opportunity they needed.
“The Dems like to describe a world where rivers flow with melted chocolate, trees sprout candy canes, and unicorns pass rainbows out their rear ends” –*Michael Dorstewitz
But what would result is a society where liberty is non-existent, essential services like healthcare is rationed, and everyone is equal only in their poverty and misery, everyone, that is, except for the politicians the class that does not produce a thing of value.
We need to trade today’s times in for a little sanity, a little boredom, and the opportunity once again to make our own way through life without government interference.
