The Real Agenda: No Growth

The real agenda of the global warming crowd is not in your interest. At the Climate Change Conference in Cancun, one of the advocates called for a no growth rationing scheme for the developed world.  He called for electric rationing and making it too expensive to drive the family car.  It sounds a lot like Jack Markell, John Carney,  and Tom Carper who all favor energy rationing  schemes.   In the real world, that means poverty, unemployment, and suffering.
“Professor Kevin Anderson, Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, said the only way to reduce global emissions enough, while allowing the poor nations to continue to grow, is to halt economic growth in the rich world over the next twenty years,” according to The Telegraph. Prof. Anderson admitted that electricity rationing would likely be necessary to achieve the desired decrease in carbon emissions. “I am not saying we have to go back to living in caves,” he said. But getting rid of full size refrigerators, wearing sweaters instead of turning on the furnace, and not being able to afford petrol for the family car  – all of which he calls necessary “adjustments in everyday life” – comes pretty darn close.

  1. No growth keeps people beholden to the government which is why liberals adhere to such nonsense.

    Yes, global warming matters and so does pollution as no one is saying do nothing but let me relay something I was told by my first battalion commander, be careful where you put your foot down you may be stick there awhile.

    In other words know what you are doing before you do it. I favor alternatives, renewables and conservation but we need exploration also. To make energy cheaper you need to make it more diversified, more plentiful and more accessible.

  2. Don’t worry, following Republican economic policies should guarantee no growth for the foreseeable future.

  3. Clinton’s ‘Community Reinvestment Act,’ which forced banks to make no-doc, ‘easy credit’ loans- ‘guaranteed’ by the quasi-government Fannie Mae-Freddie Mac, of course- got the ball rolling, which triggered speculation, inflated prices and ultimately, a collapse…with the taxpayer holding the bag.
