You know, a person could develop real animus towards leftards on the left coast. Sure, it’s fun to laugh at them, but, sometimes, you really wonder if we wouldn’t be better off if we just let them go and form their own union.
The other day, the state of Washington, leaders from British Columbia, Oregon and California agreed to limit CO2 emissions in order to fight the imaginary human caused climate change.
It’s funny because it isn’t binding. It’s like a bunch of pinheads got together and agreed to try to make the weather nicer, or something. That part is funny, and it’s also funny that they mentioned failed ideas that they promised to pursue.
Elizabeth Quigley is with Seattle based Climate Solutions. “I’m very excited. This is a really great day for the West Coast, for the nation,” said Quigley. “This is an incredibly important step forward.”
The four West Coast governments promise to promote more low carbon fuels by using more biodiesel and ethanol.
Has anyone shown that ethanol actually leads to less CO2 emissions? Gallon for gallon, sure. But, it isn’t a gallon for gallon comparison. Fuel mileage and energy density is different, as is the processing. So, has it been shown that this leads to less CO2 emissions?
They’ve also agreed to promote more zero-emission vehicles by making them 10 percent of new vehicles by 2016.
There is no such thing as a “zero-emission” vehicle. It doesn’t exist and can’t exist. Even the electric-only vehicles have emissions. And, they continue to have emissions after their built. How stupid is that? Zero emission?
However, the action plan clearly states that it has no legal effect.
LOL!!! Oh, okay, they’re doing what leftists always do. They placing symbolism over substance. They’re agreeing not to really do anything.
But, this is what floors me. ……
But Inslee is excited about the agreement. “It’s no more symbolism than the commitments we’ve made in a lot of things,” Inslee said. “The Declaration of Independence was symbolism. We’re declaring freedom today from being slaves to fossil fuels.”
You mean our independence isn’t really binding? Yes, I can understand the argument. No, I can’t understand why a citizen of the US would put forth one such as that, especially a Governor of a state.
I’m pretty sure the signers deemed it binding.
