VIDEO: Trump Encourages (Ha!) New Green Deal.
Pro environmental policies are good, but there are the extremes on the left that make some restrictions and carbon taxes so silly its laughable. Ask France about their new found carbon taxes. It's a joke. I know the Trump hate is great, but on the other hand his humor and the way it annoys extremists is hilarious. Some of you tend to clump all environmental regulations into one clean thing and consider it good. That's Disneyland grade school mentality. It's made up of many different requirements and taxes. Some are good but many others are outlandish and utterly ridiculous.
The same people who are so concerned about young people's future when it comes to climate change have no problem running up massive debt that will cripple those young people's financial future. The US could stop all carbon emissions tomorrow and at best it would slow down climate change by a few years. The Green New Deal would lead the country into bankruptcy, which will have a far more negative impact on young people than climate change.
It would not just bankrupt the country, it would create untold amounts of pollution and destruction of the planet as we mine and harvest materials in order to rebuild everything. I think we could wager that the planet would be in worse shape with all the old materials that have to be disposed of, displaced or recycled as the planet doesn't have anywhere near the capacity to recycle what we have NOW, much less the waste from a massive rebuilding. But with the zealots pushing their agenda, it's just the thought that counts, not the results.
