Vermont is said to be on of the most secular states in the nation, but that certainly doesn’t mean that Vermont doesn’t have religion. Vermont is joining an alliance…
From the Times Argus.
The alliance, which included 10 states as of Monday, is committed to upholding the goal of the 2015 Paris Agreement to reduce emissions in the United States between 26 percent and 28 percent of 2005 levels by 2025. The goal is optional and not mandatory.
“If we’re actually going to meet the goals set forth in the Climate Alliance, or even Vermont’s own plans and laws, we’re going to need to see a lot more,” Walsh said.
Still, joining the Climate Alliance shows that Vermont is committed to its own energy goals, which include getting 90 percent of energy used in Vermont from renewable sources by 2050.
“That sends a very clear message the U. S. isn’t retreating, even if the president would like us to,” Walsh said. “Is it sufficient? Absolutely not. Paris by itself is actually not as strong as it ultimately needs to be, but the fact that so many states and cities have stood up is a very good indication that the U.S. isn’t actually going to be sitting the climate fight out.”
Optional but not mandatory???? You would think that with the planet in such danger of perhaps becoming like its sister planet Venus.
And what’s this talk about 2050 when we only have 10 years left. It looks to me that in order to “save the planet” we’re going to need some draconian laws, along with draconian enforcement, followed by draconian punishments.
Which is nothing new for the left, it’s their modus operandi.
But Science practiced via the “scientific method” and not politicized says something completely different.
From the website no tricks zone.
Last year there were at least 60 peer-reviewed papers published in scientific journals demonstrating that Today’s Warming Isn’t Global, Unprecedented, Or Remarkable.
Just within the last 5 months, 58 more papers and 80 new graphs have been published that continue to undermine the popularized conception of a slowly cooling Earth temperature history followed by a dramatic hockey-stick-shaped uptick, or an especially unusual global-scale warming during modern times.
Yes, some regions of the Earth have been warming in recent decades or at some point in the last 100 years. Some regions have been cooling for decades at a time. And many regions have shown no significant net changes or trends in either direction relative to the last few hundred to thousands of years.
Succinctly, then, scientists publishing in peer-reviewed journals have increasingly affirmed that there is nothing historically unprecedented or remarkable about today’s climate when viewed in the context of long-term natural variability.
Of course this “science will be ignored. It doesn’t fit the narrative.
Climate change is a religion. And its goal is to establish a progressive-socialist-Marxist heaven on earth run by elites who will share no part in the misery that will follow.
